This is the thinnest 22 inch LED backlit monitor I've ever seen. When I saw it the sales man told me it's the thinnest he has ever seen as well. I was very excited to see it as I have been monitor shopping for a while. I really wanted to get the 24" version of this monitor but am constricted by space so I had to settle with the 22" version. The LED backlighting does help. LED bulbs tend to disturb your eyes a lot more than the standard fluorescent bulbs that most LCD's use, especially when working in poor lighting conditions. LED bulbs will make your monitor last much longer too as the lifespan of the bulbs are longer. The overall viewing experience on this monitor is great. I connect via the DVI cable to play my Xbox360 games. I love Forza, and man, Forza 3 looks amazing on this monitor. It gives 1080p a new definition. DVD viewing is also remarkable, I was testing Monster's Inc and Toy Story 3, the colors pop out quite well and make it seem like you're watching it in a mini theater. This monitor is definitely recommended to those who enjoy high definition but want it at a budget price.
