Pros Adjustable height. Bombshelter build quality. Not widescreen. Comes with DVI cable. Exceptional image quality.
Cons None. Absolutely none.
Summary Packaged to withstand a nuclear blast. Out of the box and up- and running in 5 minutes. You can just feel the build quality when you snap the monitor into the stand. The 'auto detect' feature was flawless, something that's not the norm for Linux (Ubuntu). Only required a change of resolution setting, and that's it -- no driver updates. While Linux has generally been slammed for not having a "Clear Type"-style option, lettering is exceptionally clean with this monitor (not so w/ my Samsung). The height adjuster allows the monitor to glide effortlessly up and down. Surprised to see a DVI cable packaged with the unit. As noted in the 'pros' comments, this seems to be one of the few non-widescreen monitors you can still get new. Price was unbeatable from an online retailer that was blowing them out for a hundred bucks (including soundbar!). Can't comment on the soundbar since I'm not using it. Seems everyone wants bigger (and wider) screens, but if you're in the market for a 17" monitor I can't imagine you'd find anything better than this, even at full retail.
