Very competent widescreen

Advantages: Affordable and easy to use
Disadvantages: Uninspiring cosmetic appearance
This is a very competent monitor with only a minor drawback.
On the up side, it is suprisingly large for a 19 inch monitor because of its widescreen aspect. this makes it perfect for watching DVDs and streaming video (such as iPlayer from the BBC).
the refresh rate is fast (8ms) which means it can cope with most newer games, although diehard gamers will probably want something higher spec. the max resolution is 1440 x 900 (i.e. WXGA) which is extremely generous for the price!
the monitor comes with a simple (and pleasingly compact) desktop stand, although the back of the screen has connections to enable wall mounting (providing you buy a compatible kit).
the screen also has a good auto-adjust button - one press and it will fix itself perfectly.
on the down side, it doesn't look very special. it's all plastic - no metal or glass - which makes it look a bit cheap. however, for the price you can't complain.
Summary: Well worth a look...
