Sharp & bright for price; ignore speakers 06/08/2011
Very crisp. Puts my old monitor (AOC 2216Sw) to shame. Also quite bright. No dead pixels out of the box. Full 1920x1080. Buttons well configured -- instant, direct-to brightness & volume buttons.
No HDMI port. No audio out port. Speakers are essentially nonexistent.
Great visuals for price; on sale an absolute steal. I've gamed and coded on it for hours. Works great.
At full price, you really should also get an HDMI port, even for a monitor this size, as it could do 1080. Also, if you've got speakers this lame and you pretend to take an audio in, you'd better have an option for audio out. Needs headphone port. Minus HDMI & headphone port equals minus 1 egg at full price.
Honestly, with a fan on your desk, the speakers are inaudible. And what you can hear is tinny. Barely serviceable to hear a training video. They don't noticeably add size to the monitor, however. Pretend they're not there.
That is, pretend there are no speakers, but you've found a URL that tells you how to solder something inside the monitor to unlock secret speakers, and it turns out Newegg did it for you. Now they're l337 k3w1. (But still stink as speakers.)
Need to update long term, but for the first week, I'm VERY happy.
