Good image quality, but some performance issues
The image quality is high, and for the price this monitor is a good size and quality for a desktop. Unfortunately, there have been some performance issued—intermittent trembling of the image (bad enough to give me a headache) which can only occasionally be solved by unplugging it at the wall and letting it cool before resuming, and the fact that I have to turn it on before my computer or it reads the size of the display wrong and can't be persuaded out of it (so I can't program my computer to start up at a certain time of day, as I have to be there to turn the screen on first). The design is nice enough, but I'd bypass it for a different model another time—the performance issues just aren't worth it.

Pretty good, considering I spent 60 seconds deciding!
The monitor seems fine, although I should have checked what plugs it could use - it's only got VGA, but my laptop has HDMI and UDI. My fault. Works with an adaptor.
If SmartImage is the weird software, I had to kill it. Completely annoying, it just kept moving my windows around. And not intuitive (ie I would have had to READ stuff to work it out).
Good overall :-)
