Dan, Croydon Techie

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
A good size for a flat widescreen monitor, given the price.
Bad points:
Terrible picture, lots of background flickering, especially noticable on blacks. I would have put it down to using a VGA connection when I use DVI for my own PC, but this was really bad compared to a CRT VGA monitor. It's acceptable and you don't notice it so much once you hit the desktop, but when you boot you can just see wavy lines all over the place. Poor connectivity options (VGA only). OSD comes up with a warning message about using optimal resolution, every single time you are not at that resolution, which is hideously irritating.
