I bought this as a good budget monitor for photo work and thinking I wouldn't need to buy additional speakers - it was just £20 more than the one I was thinking of getting without speakers. I've just put it into use and right now I am thinking of sending it back. The sound from both youtube and an ACDC album are better from my 5 yr old Dell laptop and iPad2. I would have given it a one but felt that unfair as I've not played with image settings to see the visuals at their best yet.
Also note that if you have a 32bit OS such as Windows 7 Home (Win 7 professional is 64 bit) the speaker won't work at all. 64 bit OS systems only.
