Pros: Beautiful high-resolution picture, Good mounting stand.

Cons: Control joystick is weird, No built-in speaker, Auto-cycle between inputs gets awkward when you're trying to debug multiple connections.

Overall Review: This monitor has a fantastic picture, at least compared to the 10-15 year old monitors it was replacing. Fortunately for me, the stand used standard VESA mounting screws. This let me attach the monitor to the wall with a standard TV mount (posture, posture, posture!). I then attached the stand to my old old 19"? Samsung which I tilted vertically to use as a side monitor. My quibbles are listed in the cons.

Worked great right out of the box

Pros: Everything just worked right out of the box. I installed a wireless USB receiver while I was turning it on for the first time. It worked so seamlessly that I unplugged it to make sure that the unit didn't include built in wireless. The on screen speaker installation screen helpfully told me which plug I had inserted the speaker into and which one I ought to have. I don't do anything super demanding with the computer, so it's more than fast enough for what I do.

Cons: For some reason I don't hear the default windows sounds, even though the speaker works. I don't know if this is due to some defect, or if it's a configuration issue. Since I don't want those annoying dings and what-have-you, I haven't really tried to find out.
