The sleek panel on this monitor is really nice. It fits on my desk extremely well and I like the clean design of the entire exterior. The onboard OSD is easy to navigate and features numerous languages for your choice. The monitor comes with a HDMI port which enables ease of access to your computer, PS3 or Xbox360. Input lag is not noticed on this monitor. The monitor also comes with D-Sub and DVI ports. Colors are definitely the strength of this monitor as it produces wonderful pictures with wide ranges of depth. Watching blu ray quality is definitely at its best on this monitor. Since the monitor is LED backlit instead of traditional fluorescent, colors look brighter, yet not to the point that it's overwhelming. I operate this monitor in a well lit room, yet find myself most of the time using only 50% of brightness. Although the monitor isn't meant to be used for gaming, games such as StarCraft2 or COD: MW2 looks superb, and there isn't any ghosting or trailing on the images. Working on this monitor is also quite productive, because with the 24 inch display you're able to easily multi-task by opening multiple windows and working documents side by side without feeling the hindered borders of a smaller screen.
