This has the best picture I've ever seen on a monitor. I also own a 24" Asus LCD and had to buy this since it was basically the same monitor but in LED format. The clarity and overall quality on the old one can't even compare to this one. The stand on this one is quite different from the older asus lcd monitors, you get a lot more forward tilt, which is helpful since my monitor has always been at or above eye level and the older stands couldn't tilt forward enough, so i always had a darker than normal picture due to the viewing angle. Aside from that the entire monitor is glossy black including the back of the monitor and the stand; older Asus LCD models would have the glossy black bezel but matte black backside. Buttons are on the bottom and are actually buttons you can feel for once instead of the usual small sliver of plastic or indent. If you want an awesome LED monitor for a low price this is the one to get. Excellent picture quality in all aspects, colors, lighting, settings were all perfect out of the box. Watching HD on this is great far better than TV s I've seen and used. This blows away anything I've seen in any stores and I've been looking everywhere for 6 months. I plan on buying another one of this same monitor for my new computer.
