"Great monitor"

I bought this monitor about 6 months ago and i must admit it is the best 20" monitor i've seen.

Responce is fast (about 8ms) when connected to the xbox 360 via the 15 pin d-sub cable, with very smooth video feedback for all you gamers out there.

Even the switching between inputs with the press of a single button, is about as simple as it gets. There are also volume up/down buttons on the front so you dont have to go through complicated menus to change the volume.

The only problem i have with this monitor is the sound, but hey, with a 1680 x 1050 resolution i think that can be forgiven. Other than that I can't really fault this monitor, definately a good buy for around £200.

Make sure you have a half decent graphics card when using this monitor with a pc, as my onboard graphics couldn't quite reach the higher resolutions.

All in all this monitor has a great sharp picture with vibrant colours and I would recommend it to anyone.
