I recently purchased an entire custom computer system through HP, (wonderful experience, by the way!) and I bought this monitor to go with it. I can honestly say I am thrilled that I did! The visual clarity is just stunning.... The colors are bright, crisp, and vivid -- overall, very pleasing to the eye. The ease in setting up a DVI-D connection was a plus, although the monitor came packaged with almost every kind of adapter or cable needed for whatever set up I decided to do. The monitor is both stylish and space saving, it tilts and swivels making it easier for others to see the screen. The BrightView technology makes things more pronounced and, well, bright. The 1440x900 maximum resolution makes my digital photos, scanned images/photos look their best, and gives flat panel TV quality when playing DVD's and other media. Documents are not 'muddy' looking --games are extremely clear with wonderful detail. In the short time I've had this monitor I have been very pleased.
