I have been using this 24" (23 I/2" measured diagonally) monitor for the last three weeks now, and I have to say, that I am more than satisfied with it. I bought it on the basis of being a well known brand name, styling, the type of inputs, 2ms, and overall valued for money. Compared to other monitors that I considered, this seems to be one of the best value for money at around £175. Out of the box I had it set up within half an hour or so. Image quality is excellent without making any initial adjustments, but there are lots of options to choose from should you feel the need to adjust the picture/screen ect. The 16:9 format screen as full hd resolution 1920x1080 so perfect for movie and game fans. Also it as standard, game, movie, scenery and text picture modes. I can't say what the sound quality is like using the monitor speakers, because I have the sound coming out of a separate sound system that's connected to my pc. Inputs consist of hmdi (not on the cheaper E2407hdsv model) dvi, vga and audio in. It comes complete with all necessary cables, apart from the hmdi cable. Highly recommended.
