Advantages: Simple to use and quite cheap
Disadvantages: Button layout is poor and rotate system is poor
This has been my secondary monitor last months.
Installation was simple, little more than power and signal cables for basic operation, its a standard 4:3 ratio screen but with the ability to turn on its side.
I installed the supplied drivers and they all work well, not really giving much more functionality than out of box drivers but they do support the rotate function.
The screen rotates 90 degrees so if you are working on a document you can see more of it, works particularity well for dtp. Getting the cables through the hole in the stand loose enough for it to rotate easily gave me more headaches than its worth so I gave up on this feature.
The picture is clear and bright, the 5ms refresh is very good for most applications, gaming is not my thing so I can't comment on that aspect.
Speakers are fine for the normal system beeps and light radio use but not up to much more.
Cables are supplied for dvi, vga and sound, all of good quality not had any problems.
The control buttons are bit fiddle all feeling the same so having to check where your fingers are before pressing. This most annoying when you go for the accept button and hit power.
If i was buying another screen I would get a wide screen, its much kinder on the eyes.
Summary: Worth the money but buy a wide screen is nicer to use.
