Working in an IT department we brought a variety of these montiors in to aid designers we have in the office. With a display of 1440 x 900 the image quality is sharp and bright, but nothing more or nothing less than you would expect when paying for a monitor of this price.
For a home monitor I believe there are far better models on the market in a similar price range. Aesthetically the monitor is large, thick screen and a wide clumpy base which looks very cheap. One drawback is it can be temperamental when using dual monitors on both xp and win7. It needs to be on before you turn the PC on otherwise it is not picked up and has to be unplugged. We've had several issues with no real work around.
One thing that sets this monitor apart from the rest is the features. With multiple functionality on the display settings to the various input ports surrounding the monitor, this is a good addition to a working environment but maybe a poor choice for a home monitor? Mainly due to the recent fall in prices of visual displays it seems there are better options available.
