Wow...I love the idea of something other than the beige computer tower and monitor. This monitor is a very modern looking blue and silver.

The screen is 17". It has a microphone in the top of the monitor which could prove useful (I have not tested it yet). The monitor is also equipt to have Polk audio speakers attached.

It displays colours and images quite vividly, with a max. resolution of 1280 by 1024.You can alter the settings via the one touch display buttons on the front such as contrast, brightness, sound etc.

One criticism is the power lead, why oh why do manufactures provide only inches of lead I will never know. I have viewed dvds on this monitor and picture resoloution on full screen is excellent.

As usual you can alter settings via the windows interface for your own preference. It is a very good multipurpose monitor. Whats more the monitor doesn't have to be installed, just plug in and it's ready for use.

The monitor sits on a 60 degree left/right swivel base, which also allows for a 5 degree forward/back tilt, which in itself is a new design, more like a four legged tripod (yes I guess thats a poor description but it gives you an idea).

The only draw back to this monitor is that it is quite heavy, but I guess as you don't move one about often that is no real problem.

It looks a bit weird to me.
