Consumer review (

Super workstation monitor


Can't beat this for use with a display port mini-computer that is mounted to the back of the monitor or on a swing arm. DVI is less to run with a converter cable than VGA which is on most smaller monitors.

Has a DVI interface! Sharp picture when you need a smaller monitor to mount on an arm for a workstation

None so far

Asus VB178T 17" LED LCD Monitor


Contrast is EXCEPTIONAL!My wife plays "Find Object" games where you have to find hidden objects in the pictures.The difference in being able to see the hidden objects was night and day.
