Antony, Oxford Nothing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This monitor is so bright I have to turn it down quite a lot - but that's a good thing. The display quality is amazing in DVI & HDMI and looks really nice in the impressive top resolution of 1920 x 1200. Huge screen, great for watching movie & playing games. The colours (even the blacks) are perfect. Great response time, absolutely no ghosting, even on the fastest games. Makes my old 17" TFT monitor look quite shoddy, which I didn't expect. Easy to set up, even my gran could do it. I love the touch buttons, and the ability to select settings for games, movies, internet browsing etc is a really nice touch. Nice to have extra USB slots at the back.
Bad points:
Frequently hear a 'pop' when I turn it on for some reason (seems to work fine though, but I'm hoping nothing comes of it). Keeping all the packaging for now just in case :(. Not sure how good this thing is for my eyes as the refresh rate is only 60hz max. The D-sub quality is fairly poor, wouldn't recommend conecting a VGA cable to it. Think this is more for my xbox 360, but my screen is slightly 'zoomed in' when connecting my xbox via HDMI and running games in 1080p (i'm nitpicking here though).

Alan, Inverness

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Rock-solid image. No dead pixels. Superb colour rendition, gamma and contrast with the full range of 'ramps' on the standard grey scale chart clearly visible - editing photographs is a joy on this monitor. Response time is good, with no sign of smearing even in fast FPS games such as COD5. The wide range of adjustment makes it easy to find a comfortable viewing position on any desk.
Bad points:
Adjusting custom colour tone for calibration purposes could be more precise. Touch-sensitive controls look neat but no backlighting makes them almost impossible to see, let alone use, under normal room lighting.

Ian, Cambridge

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is an excellent display and very adjustable - being able to vary the height up or down by over 10cm. Additionally the screen swivels through 180+ degrees to allow access to rear ports without having to try to reach over the top.
The display is excellent, every pixel in the 1920x1200 is visible (no dead ones) so high resolution games look absolutely stunning. A very different screen (and much improved) from my previous 1600x1200 CRT.
Bad points:
None experienced.
