This is the perfect monitor for those who understand what a monitor is for: great picture. O, did I mention it has LED backlighting? It is simple and it does what it's meant to do very well. Hook it up and you immediately see what I mean. For me the most important feature in a monitor is that it displays text well, because even though I do other things on it, I often spend long periods of time reading online. The LED backlighting basically makes the colors much brighter, fuller, and more accurate, the screen much thinner than the previous generation of screens, and essentially perfect contrast. All of these things make text easier to read, eliminating those headaches you might get with your current monitor. It has an equally big effect on the more fun parts of using a monitor: movies and games. Because of the huge jump in contrast with LED backlighting, every dark corner is clear as day and every overly lit scene is very easy to make out. If you've ever missed details in a journey through a cave or a fight in the dark, you'll know what I mean. It also has quite high resolution for a 19" monitor, giving you plenty of real estate to work with. The lack of HDMI can be an annoyance, but getting a DVI adapter is easy and cheap these days. Most computers use DVI anyway. This screen really turned me on to LED backlighting. Good work BenQ.
Summary: An amazing picture makes this one a great find
