Pros: Lots of inputs
1:1 pixel mapping allows a you to display 1080p and not suffer from stretch images
Also allows scaling of images to fit screen while keeping aspect ratio
These are the only reasons why it even has 2 eggs.
Nice looking panel
Tech support is helpful and trained. Best experience I've had when dealing with multiple techs over multiple sessions.
Cons: All eggs were lost because it has the worst color gradients I've seen on a monitor. I've had really REALLY cheap no-name brand monitors that reproduced colors better than this. I've seen better gradients on 16bit monitors. At least they dither the image.
I'm not the only person who thinks so
Other Thoughts: If you care at ALL about games looking good or movies or really anything looking good, don't get this monitor. If you just want a CHEAP solution so you can hook you PS3 up to your computer monitor, then it's an ok monitor.
Settings are a hassle. Input switching is SLOW and a hassle. If you connect 2 computers, 1 D-Sub (a.k.a. VGA) and 1 DVI, you have to go through menus to get to the DVI, it defaults to D-Sub and the source button just cycles between PC-mode (DVI or VGA), component and HDMI.
HDMI input is fuzzy. I did not put this in the con section because it may be that mine has a bad HDMI port. The red signal is also not aligned properly.
Pros: see previous review by me
Cons: see previous review by me
Other Thoughts: Forgot to mention that even though it can't sync to 1920x1080 on the VGA inputs it can display 1920x1200 just fine when sent over the VGA inputs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great image. No Ghosting what so ever. Works well
Cons: on the Digital (DVI) input, it scales 1920x1080 (a.k.a. 1080p) upto 1920x1200. It scales it so that it will fill the screen. This stretches images and does not look good. When using it with my PS3 (this applies to the XBox 360 as well) and sending 1080p the images will be stretched because of this.
it CANNOT sync to 1920x1080 on either of the analog (VGA) inputs. It will automatically display at 1680x1050 and crop off the parts of the image that go beyond the bounds of 1680x1050. Sadly this makes it so that HDFury cannot be used on the analog inputs when outputting 1080p from an HDMI source
Other Thoughts: Small amount of backlight bleeding. But, trust me, you are not going to notice it except when displaying dark images. Such as when playing F.E.A.R., the stuff at the top of the screen will have the LCD effect noticed when looking at an older LCD at about 30 degrees off of optimum viewing angle.
I'd have preferred a different method of switching between inputs. I'd have preferred a one button input switch, but instead you have to navigate a menu...takes about 5 seconds...but still i'd reather have a single button dedicated to changing the input. Not a con, just a personal preferrence
