Good deal at 180 bucks!

Pros: excellent features in the screen setup menu, great picture quality very crisp and clear, screen is not glossy so you do not get reflections, auto aspect ratio feature makes any res look good, very large desktop resolution for the money, very large screen size for the money
Cons: built in speaker quality is terrible, the stand feels cheap and plastic
I'm surprised that there are no reviews for this product out there yet.
I'm currently using this LCD display as a secondary monitor for my laptop through the VGA (D-Sub) connection. (I haven't tried the DVI or HDMI connections yet)
Initially I was not impressed with this display, I was getting very distracting static and screen flicker all over my desktop. After some research I found out that this is a general problem with all LCD displays that are connected to a laptop and I was easily able to fix it by removing the ground pin from the wall outlet connector.
After tweaking the desktop resolution and the LCD display's built in settings I was able to get everything looking absolutely perfect. There is even a setting for how sharp you want the display to be. When I first used the display the details were a bit fuzzy, but after upping that setting everything looks perfectly crisp and clear.
I was also really impressed by the aspect ratio setting that allows for the display to automatically adjust and resize to any resolution to prevent screen stretch/distortion from different aspect ratios.
The built in speakers are of terrible quality though, my laptop has better sound quality, but that's no big deal, I wasn't planning on using them anyway.
