      Good monitor for to enjoy movies at home, but may not suit the workplace

      This monitor was bought as a replacement for a non-widescreen monitor, which is used as an external monitor to a docked laptop.

      The first thing to notice is the shiny black bezel in a somewhat angular style, incorporating what I would call a chin or goatee at the bottom. In a working environment this is at odds with the surrounding equipment and gives it a cheap looking non-durable style, however in a home setting, this settles in perfectly with a relaxed atmosphere and what was a cheap look becomes stylish and upmarket.
      The monitor comes with a stand which is easy to adjust for tilt, but like the bezel, it too is made of shiny plastic and suits a home environment more than the workplace.

      Setting up the monitor was extremely easy, the stand connects with a solid click and the ports are easy to access. The ports are aligned perpendicular to the back so connecting the cables was a cinch, but I prefer ports that are in line which would allow better cable management, as it is, the (thick) cables stick out a good two inches before they can be tucked away.

      The screen is 19 inches wide with a HD resolution of 1440x900. This is more than enough for work, being able to have a full spread sheet open without having to scroll across the screen too often. The colours are consistent with a bright even backlight, LED no less, generating a clear image whether watching a film or typing up a document. I don't use this monitor for gaming, but I don't see how that would be a problem based on how well it handles fast paced scenes in videos.

      Finally, the monitor features built in speakers. These are a useful feature to have for those on a budget, but they are poor quality. They lack any bass and have a tinny sound and have vibration and distortion at higher volumes. I much prefer using the laptops built in speakers for any task. But for the price, around £95 I paid, speakers were a bonus rather than essential.
