Good for a cheap WS tft

Advantages: DVI/VGA, price
Disadvantages: Buttons, Backlight
My first and current widescreen monitor, ive had it for around 2 years now and all still working fine. The screen quality is fine not brilliant. I'm possitive the old 4:3 LG tft it replaced produced much better blacks and colours. With a little tweaking you can add colour with nvidias digital vibrance too built in the drivers.
Backlight can also be a issue on dark scenes you can easily see it emiting and ruining the blacks.
Having said its not brilliant it was the cheapest widescreen tft on the market at the time of purchase from pc world at £150.
It has dual input so ive got the pc on dvi and use my xbox 360 on the vga port. Gaming wise the monitor has no ghosting or other problems. The dual mode leads me to my next problem the buttons.
The buttons on the monitor are awful, really hard to press and awkward. I've seen a few complaints regarding them and it takes a few hard presses to get the menu up to change between the 360 and pc.
Even with the downfalls i've mentioned ive not replaced it in the 2 years but plan on a 24" soon.
Summary: A good, cheap tft but not amazing in 2008.
