Great Price, two years ago

Advantages: Reliable and many options
Disadvantages: Poor colour, overpriced in todays market
I picked up this monitor a couple of years ago as a cheap monitor for my university set up. It cost me about £90 at the time so I'm surprised to see Amazon selling it at £104 now.
The monitor is very much a budget monitor to my mind, although presenting a perfectly reasonable 1440 x 900 pixel resolution (a little stretched on a 19" screen today, but 2 years ago very acceptable) the colour presentation always seems off and I can't get photos to look 'right' on it, same for videos where I know what the colour should look like, but they just don't for whatever reason.
The monitor features dual inputs at the back, both VGA and DVI, this is particularly handy if you're short of space, as a student I hooked my PC in through the DVI socket and my Xbox 360 through the VGA, there are also a set of rather tinny speakers built in which you can also (with a bit of jerry rigging) run a consoles audio through.
The screen still plods along quite happily today and is something I've quite happy with for what I spent on it, that said today there are better options for similar money and it might be worth looking at bigger names such as Samsung and LG for a little bit more.
Summary: A good buy two years ago, but today you can do better.
