I bought this to do double-duty as an HDTV and as a hi-res (1920X1200) computer monitor. It does both, and I'm very happy with it.
My only complaint is that if you view from much off-axis, the larger angle parts of the image are brownish gray, but it's still acceptable for the price.
As others have noted, the sound quality is nothing to sing about, but it's adequate, and if you send the audio to a good sound system, it's fine.
The goofy "basketball" appearance isn't as bad as I expected, and, for me, it puts the screen at about the right height. In some ways, the appearance is kind of cool, in a geeky way. I have this unit facing a window, and the basketball part blocks the light, so I don't have to close the blinds.
Another oddity is that the stand (fits onto the back) is solid metal, not tubing, so it's very heavy, which surprised me. But it works.
So far, this unit has been terrific, and it has exceeded my expectations.
