I ordered this monitor to use as the primary display for my laptop. It works well, has good picture, and does what it is supposed to. I don't know that it has the best high definition/picture quality, but for the price, it's good. I'm not the most technologically savvy person; my computer needs center on emailing, browsing, writing research and papers, running statistical analyses, etc. So, no high tech video, gaming, processing, etc. All in all, though, it does what it should and I'm happy with it. I'm ordering a second of the same type of monitor (with USB to VGA video adapter/external graphics card required) for split screen viewing.
