Last year I decided to make the switch from PC to Mac. After considering all of the options I went for a Mac Mini, and as a result I needed a decent monitor to go with it. Searching around for opinions and recommendations, this particular monitor kept cropping up as a good one to buy. I paid under £150 for it, and its proved to be an excellent choice.It comes with HDMI, DVI and D-SUB (VGA) inputs. I've only tried the DVI input. Connecting this to my Mac Mini caused it to immediately recognise the resolution and so-on which is a great time-saver! No faffing around with resolution on the computer.
The resolution of this monitor is 1920x1080 - effectively the resolution you need for 1080p. If I could get a blu-ray player to fit my Mac I'd be sorted, but even standard movies at full-screen look good enough for me.Overall I'm delighted with the screen - it's crystal clear, no dead pixels, simple menu-controls on the monitor if required.
On the downside, just occasionally when the screen goes to sleep and then comes out of that mode the screen is just fuzzy with nothing else showing. Turning the monitor off and on again sorts the problem out but it's a little irritating. Not sure if this is an issue with the monitor or the mac though.
