Bought first one, faulty.. exchanged..faulty again
This is not a very good model. I bought my first one in Aug 2012, after 7 months, it started to show pink lines on top of the screen. after doing that for about 10 minutes, the screen would blink continuously. I used my manufactorers warranty, and waited about 1 month to receive my exchange monitor. Same exact model. It has worked very well for another 6 or so months. Now, the bottom of screen has a dim spot. It will flicker brighter and then dim again, but the dim spot is always there. It does not seem to get worse, but it is annoying. I do not recommend. Going with another brand next time.

Great for the price
I purchased 2 of these for a dual setup with a new tower. They are very light and VESA compatible, which was a bonus for wall mounting. If you plan a wall-mount, just note that these can't be mounted completely flush with the wall since the ports face rearward, not downward.
Both are running DVI-D to the monitors, one from HDMI and one from DisplayPort. These monitors have many different options and settings that can be adjusted, so there is a lot of flexibility in getting them set up.

Picture quality excellent
I bought this monitor as an upgrade for a HD quality picture and it did not disappoint for a 21.5" screen. However, I was really surprised that the monitor did not come with an HDMI hookup, being an HD monitor. I suppose it's because it did not have built in speakers. Overall, with the DVI connection, the picture quality is excellent and for the refurbished price tag, it was a great buy!

I bought this monitor to use with my security system. Since the monitor is HD, I thought it would have HDMI input. It does not. It works fine using the VGA output of my security system, I don't get to use the HD feature. I'm now using it as a computer monitor, not a security system monitor.
