This 24' inch LCD monitor by acer was very easy to set up. I just plugged in the power cable right out of the box and then connect my computer to the monitor and it works right away. The monitor comes with 3 input signals: VGA for older computers and laptops, DVI digital input with audio input for desktops and laptops, and also an HDMI port for your blu-ray/DVD players, video game consoles. There is a button on the monitor that lets you switch between the 3 inputs easily and quickly. I did not see a lot of light leakage on the top and bottom of the monitor, which is good compared to the other low end big screen monitors that I have bought and used. There seems to be a buzzing sound coming from the monitor when the brightness was set below 95 out of a possible 100 setting. The touch buttons on the side of the monitor is rather hard to use, and I would prefer traditional press-in buttons instead of it. The power consumption of the monitor is at around 100 watts when on and about 2-3 watts when off. The speakers that came with the monitor is not very powerful, but usually enough for simple usage like television tuners and other uses. The monitor does support 1080 resolution, which is a plus when connecting video game consoles like the PS3, xbox or blu ray disk players to view high definition material.
