Good monitor - fast enough response times for action games and for watching movies. Drivers are unnecessary for Windows vista, although you can download something from LG's site; I'm not quite sure what it adds, if anything. I'm using and nVidia card whcih will drive it at the native resoltuon of 1400 by 900 in both Vista and Ubuntu. Some older peices of software can't cope with widescreen and you need to tweak down the resolution to something 4 by 3 - eg 1280 x 1024 - which distorts the picture, but that's not the monitor's fault.
My card gives digital video out which this monitor acccepts directly, so no analogue involved at all.
The menu adjustment I found a little tricky to master - wasn't quite sure which of the buttons did what, but I eventually managed, despite being stuck in Chinese for a while. (Maybe it needs a master rest - to English of course!)
I found (and still find) it difficult to adust the angle of the stand up/down which is a little awkward.
