Basic Usage

Setting up the LCD was very easy, like I said the stand has to be one of the easiest to install, but it does block part of the DVI connection, so if you are going to be using DVI make sure you connect it before you put the stand on. One thing that I would have liked to have seen would have been some type of cable management.

The menu on the display is what you would expect. You have contrast, brightness, position, volume, input select, color, language, and reset. The controls on the side of the display make it very easy to navigate around the menu. You also have a volume shortcut button and a mode button. The mode button brings up the highlight menu that will allow you to high light a certain part of your screen.

One thing that can't go unnoticed about this display is the large screen size. I have been using a 20.1-inch display for the past 3 years and jumping up to a 24-inch display is a big change, but I'm not complaining. I thought my 1680 x 1050 resolution was enough space well 1920 x 1200 really gives me a lot of room. I am able to have multiple windows open and even play a movie in the corner of my screen and still view websites at full resolution.

The speakers on the display work great they will suffice for any office. You're not going to get a lot from the two 2w speakers, but at least they are on the front of the display unlike the last monitor we reviewed.
