George, Weymouth.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Smart looking monitor.
Bad points:
1, Cannot tilt the screen for more than a few degrees, So you have to adjust your sitting position rather than the screen.
2. The reflexion of the screen is unacceptably high, its like a mirror, worse if a light source, e.g. light from window is behind the operator. A non reflective screen would have been very useful.
3. There is a flicker worse in coloured backgrounds and least in white ones. As if there is something wrong with a fluorescent tube.
4. Sound is poor and there is lots of interference. I am now using outside speakers.

Good points:
genuine out-of-the-box set up; this was an easy experience (once I had worked out that I needed to change the resolution of my video in Control box - but the screen detected this and told me to pull my finger out)
The size is perfect - not so big to dominate the desk, but big enough for split-screen working or for excellent reproduction of photographs
control buttons are "soft", changing with function and easy to use
the screen looks nice even turned off!
Bad points:
the speaker is weedy and tinny, so don't rely on it alone
