I purchased the ASUS VW266H about one year ago to become my bedroom HTPC monitor. It had one dead pixel out of the box and this was remedied by one of the many methods online. The drivers were recognized right out of the box. The picture on this monitor is a 1000X better the two 19 inch flat screens that I had. The ports on the back of this monitor are great for a monitor. I've used all the ports with various video game systems and ofther video devices. The Xbox 360 picture is extremely nice, as well as movie playback. The resolution goes up to 1900 x 1200 which is great for wide screen video with subtitles but it's as useful for much else. Blu-rays also look sweet on this thing. The speakers on this monitor are pretty useless but I've had surround sound hooked up with this system so I haven't noticed much, but if you by this expecting anything but minimal sound you may be asking too much. Other then that though I would recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a great upgrade on the video end of their computing or gaming.
