Rob, Chesterfield Casual Gamer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice sharp picture, looks nice, has a nice normal matte screen - none of that glossy reflective rubbish. Easy to fit VESA mount to it - so I can't comment on the stand as I haven't used it.
Bad points:
Speakers are not up to much, but then you can't really expect room filling sound from monitor speakers. Limited to 1366x768 (which is fine) if you need higher a res from a small monitor look elsewhere

Richard, Wiltshire

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The resolution is consistent, no constant auto-adjusting like some screens, reliable so far.
Bad points:
It's just so small. The description doesn't make it clear just how small this screen really is. 18.5" sounds ok on paper, but remember that this is a widescreen monitor, so it's very narrow vertically. You will be forever scrolling while using a web browser. It's a bad experience while surfing the web, but would be fine for watching videos etc.
