The monitor was easy to set up, and it's exactly what I wanted. The 19-inch screen is perfect for my small office. A larger screen would not have worked for me. I also favor the shape of the screen - square instead of wide. A friend tipped me off to some of the disadvantages of wide screen monitors. Be aware that the monitor does not come with speakers. I purchased a speaker bar separately for $19 on the HP website (only because Overstock did not carry it at the time), and it hooks on to the bottom of the monitor which has slots already provided for this. I shopped around for this monitor, and Overstock offered the very best price. I saved about $90, and you can't beat the standard $2.95 shipping cost. It arrived fast and was packed to prevent damage. Once again, Overstock came through with flying colors.
