This is a good solid monitor for every day use. I have two of these and have been very pleased with them. I have not had any of the issues that some of the reviewers have had. Even for gaming, they have handle the graphics with no problems.
The colors are strong and vibrant. It plugged in easily to my older computer yet has more modern hookups as well. This is the second monitor I've bought (one a little more than a year ago) from the same brand name and its still going strong so I'm looking forward to enjoying this monitor. I do wish it had a swivel stand but haven't found it to be much of a big deal as I can turn stand and all easily. It does have a vertical repositioning stand but you have to hold the stand down and pull the screen into position.
