Solid peformer as a computer monitor AND a TV

I own 2 of this model -- the first I purchased back in June for my office and the second a couple of weeks ago for my home office because I liked the first one so much (and because the previous year's model it replaced did not have standard bracket mounting screws on it for a monitor arm). I run it as a 1920 x 1080 monitor and have tried it VGA and HDMI before finally settling on DVI. I have also watched HD Satellite TV off of the HDMI input.

The controls and set up menu is a big improvement over the previous model and very intuitive. It is much easier to tell when the monitor is on and the power "touch area" seems also to have been improved to the point it always works just like you want it to. Picture quality -- both on the various computer inputs AND on the TV signal is very good. The remote contol has a good design and feel and functions quite well.

While I am sure there are some "specialist" monitors that would offer more accurate color or a little better text performance, this thing really shines with Mass Effect 2 or Dragon Age Origins as well as satisfying my needs in MS Office 2010 and Adobe Photoshop. Video performance, even on HD sources, is better than any of the other TVs in my home, although the "shades of black" peformance is not up to my large plasma TV. That video drawback aside, action sequences are quite good and it makes a very satisfactory TV.

At a price of less than $260, there is LOTS of bang for the buck.
