Pros:

This thing is a great display. Colors are crisp and vibrant especially with SPLENDID video presets. It is bright so this is a pro for me, may be a con for others. I play FPS and this monitor is great for it, games I have tested was BFBC2, BF3, MW2 & 3 and this thing makes the games look pretty amazing compared to my older monitor, which was an Acer 18.5" G18HV. I bought this thing solely for PC Gaming and I really like the way they look now, especially at 1920x1080.

No ghosting, which was a problem with my 18.5" Acer @ 5ms e.g. scrolling through webpages that was heavy in text brought on considerable ghosting in my Acer. The VS247HP however looks great, no ghosting, words do not become a blur whilst scrolling/skimming through a news article or message boards et al.

No light bleed in normal desktop use/gaming applications applications.

Contrast is also a plus, had to turn mine on manually (ASCR) with my menu buttons on the monitor. Also the Menu is very easy and simple to navi

Cons:

The monitors stand, it wobbles, but not worth deducting an egg. It's not as if the monitor acts like a Newton's Cradle.

Promo, I bought the monitor for $189, Newegg offered promo 4 days AFTER I had bought the monitor LOL.

Other Thoughts:

I'm very happy with this monitor purchase, do not regret in the slightest, my unit did ship from Mississauga. Ordered on a Saturday, shipped Monday, got it Wednesday.

If you're viewing this review and this unit is still $10 off with the promo code, which ends tomorrow January 17th then BUY this monitor, it'll be the best $179 you'd have spent this new year.

Sorry to other people looking to see more input on HDMI, as past reviews have mentioned problems. That was a non-issue for me because I do not intend to use HDMI for any reason on my monitor.
