Excellent Choice for Multimonitor Setups
Pros: The monitor stand is top-notch out of the box, allowing height, tilt, and a 90 degree rotation to allow it to be used in landscape mode. Unless you're doing something exotic, you will not need to buy special panel mounting hardware to do any one-panel high multimonitor setup. The display is fairly crisp, and so bright I had to turn it down to its lowest setting. The bezel is flat and unadorned so it easily moves next to any other monitors.
Cons: The mount only allows a 90 degree rotation in one direction; this is a minor nit, but it does prevent you from orienting the panels so the power LED is away from the center of multiple screens. The power LED is also is the standard too-bright blue, so plan on taping them over.
Other Thoughts: I realize these panels seem pricey given that they are 20", but they are very close to half the size of a 30" monitor, with comparable resolutions, so the pricing is in line with similar screens on a $/sq inch basis. The size and resolution allows for a well-matched dual/triple-panel set up with a 30" main panel and the LG L2000 rotated 90 degrees to either side.

Pros: Good viewing angles. I'm also a big fan of the 1600x1200 shape -- it allows two side-by-side blocks of text, 10x20 pixel font, 79 columns, 59 rows. Perfect for programming.
Cons: Weird electronic buzz/hum noises with some image patterns. This is using the DVI input. My (discontinued, sadly) Samsung 204T doesn't have this problem at all, even with the same patterns. I know this because I run the two dual-head.
