It looks good, has lots of (almost entirely) positive reviews and won the customers' choice award on Newegg about 4 times. So, it seems good.
My problem is that I have been using CRT monitors all my life and the only thing I know about LCD monitors is that they work differently (refresh rates) and bad ones can lag (or ghost?) on games not giving you a good display.
Another thing is that I have not experienced a widescreen display and I wonder how that works with most applications (does it look alright or will I be playing lots of games on the normal, more square-like ratio resulting in black space on the sides of the picture?).
Yes, it's great.
Hows this monitor look colorwise and hows the backlight? In the 2 or 3 negative comments people mentioned an annoying backlight / viewing angle / washed colors that has prevented me from purchasing so far.
The viewing angle isn't spectacular, but I comfortably watch Dexter and Lost on it from a couch 1.5 feet below it with 3 people watching with me, and nobody has ever complained that the image was hard to see. I don't imagine you would often find yourself in a situation where the viewing angle was a problem.
