      Hard to find a better monitor without going wide-screen

      I have had this monitor now for a few years, and have yet to find fault with it. It is one of the few flat-screen monitors that can reach 1600x1200, without either being massive (with consequent low pixel resolution) or falling in to the widescreen category.

      For playing older games, a widescreen monitor is just not really suitable, since a lot of these games only support traditional 4:3 resolutions. This monitor ensures that these games still look great.

      Viewing angles are spectacular - colours are still maintained from any angle, which is essential in a large screen like this - a full screen of solid colour exhibits no shift at all from top to bottom or side to side.

      The monitor has a welcome feature of 4 USB 2.0 ports - at the back of the screen, these are excellently placed for connecting devices such as a bluetooth dongle, webcam and keyboard. They are not so useful for memory sticks though, as they are hard to access (a simple USB extension cable solves this).

      Response rates are spot on - I've never had any problem with ghosting while watching films or playing games.
