This is a good buy for a first computer due to the low price but the odd resolution brought me some troubles. For just average computing and web surfing this is fine as a monitor but beyond that it is useless. In games it tends to leave motion blur, and odd looking edges because of the pixle count. However, this monitor works fine with VGA, which is good considering that it is the only option for input. a DVI-D port would be nice but again games just look kind of, off, on this. The matte finish on the screen removes some but not all glare and tends to attract dirt and is difficult to clean without leaving streeks. But in the end this is a very good monitor for the price and gives plenty of room to have more than one window open at a time. For a work computer this is a good buy but be ready to raise it because it hase a very shory stand. I first got this a year ago and it still holds up fine.
