Pros: Very good display for the price. I've been using a 61" Samsung DLP for my monitor since last fall when a hurricane took out my office furniture, so I needed something big-ish. I do a lot of gaming and find no faults there, and video is very decent. Touch panel is cool.... but see Cons.... No dead pixels.

Cons: As you know, the stand is pretty cheap. The locking wing bent as I tightened the stand on... partly my fault I'm sure, but it really needs more "confidence-inspiring" hardware for a unit this size. There is no stand-by light for the touch panel controls when it's off, so finding the power "switch" in the dark is a guessing game since there is no real button. Needs at least a stand-by light on the power "button". You can't really read the touch panel labels from a normal viewing distance, and since there are no buttons to feel, it's just guess-work without bright lighting in your room.

Overall Review: I really appreciate the "auto brightness" feature, and other quick settings. I used to be into setting things super-exact, but this monitor has VERY convenient display options for casual/hands-off use. (except for that you can't read the touch panel labels from a normal viewing distance....)

Pros: Extremely good cooling with my Intel 3.0 dual core. The LCD panel gives the temp of one of the peltier plates, and I have never seen it go over 29C under very heavy loads, 24C at idle. My system CPU temp reads 19C at idle and never higher than 37C that I've seen. Way to go!

Cons: The fan is quite loud and noticeably cycles the fan speed. I can easily hear it over 4 120mm fans and an Nvidia 8800. It was a little tricky to install the screws, but definitely doable, and as usual, the manual is half worthless.

Overall Review: Great cooling if you have the room in your case for it and can handle the loud fan changing speeds often. I could do without the control panel, there's no need for yet another light source on my case.

Pros: I've competed in lots of UT2004 deals, and this is the best I've used. I have a logitech 510
