Great looking monitor with accurate colour display
I have had this IPS 24" monitor now for just over 3 months & it has performed flawlessly.
There are no dead pixels and it can be recalibrated with a 'Spyder' or similar if you need for photographic work.
Although I find it is very good straight out of the box on colour reproduction.
The 3 connection at the rear DVI, VGA, HDMI are easily got at as is the head phone connection, with a groove in the stand for the cables to trail inside to hide them.
The option to wall hang is there but I find the height is just right even though it's non adjustable, the tilt function allows for any issues here unless your desk height is really odd!
The stand is a little wobbly but to be honest unless your someone who's constantly bumping the desk it's of no consequence.
The bezel is 18 mm viewed front on & 19 mm thick.
There's also plenty of options for user preferences with these buttons nicely tucked away but easily reachable under the right hand bezel edge.
Unless you have direct sunlight on the screen the reflection from most lights is pretty non existent as it has a matt finish to the screen which works very well.
I haven't tested the speaker output except for with head phones but it gave good stereo.
I have used both the DVI & HDMI and both map to the screen without any problems.
Someone I read elsewhere was on about balking of the screen, bleeding light, but I haven't witnessed this & can only think it's their graphics card causing this, as I had a dodgy card which was causing flickering & thought it was the monitor.
The graphics card packed up all together & now with the new card there are no visual defects at all.
All in all very good & for me this might seem odd to say but no screen buzz, as in noise off of the unit you can get with some monitors, I know it has no speakers & I chose it for that reason but some monitors I've had in the past even without speakers gave off an electrical buzzing noise, this is absolutely silent and doesn't run hot either.
