Overall, this is a good monitor.
Packaging and contents: The monitor came in a cardboard box with polystyrene and plastic air filled pockets, and came bundled with a power cable and VGA and DVI-D cable, which I thought was generous. I've used the DVI cable that came with it since I got it and have no issues or problems - signal has always been fine.
Use: I've used this monitor for a year and it still performs well. When it was new the resolution (1680x1050) seemed sufficient but now that I watch more HD videos I find myself wishing it was just that little bit higher - a minor issue, though, as it's close enough to make little difference.
Comments: From the technical details I see the viewing angle is described as 170 horizontal and 170 vertical - I find this hard to believe, as on my monitor I would say anything over 90 degrees starts to look quite different (muted colours, greying blacks) so while the display is still viewable it's nothing like it's supposed to look.
However, the monitor is crisp and colours are vibrant, the contrast ratio of 8000:1 is great and the refresh rates are high enough for gaming (Crysis 2 plays perfectly on my system and looks great on this monitor)
I don't use the built in speakers, though their inclusion is a nice touch.
