All of the other reviews cover this product well.

 

If you have around 350 to 400 dollars, (price may have gone down on this particular model) you will get an excellent HDTV/Monitor. Being able to switch easily from TV to Monitor is great. The most important feature in so far as ease of use is concerned...

Love the remote and large display. HDMI< DVI, and VGA hook up. Contrary to one of the reviews, Windows 7 was able to find updated drivers for my unit

Limited ergonomics. Wobbly. Cheap plastic base

Good HDTV and 1080p Monitor, with DVI & 15pin PC ports

 

During the past month (Jan/Feb 2011), I purchased 2 HD TV/ PC monitors from Legend Micro, who provided good service:

Bright displays, excellent 1920x1080 display with my PC using DVI, good with VGA (15 pin) ; Good sound & HD reception ; Simple, uncluttered remote ; Easy to switch between TV and PC ; Easy connector access at rear ; Nice looking

Not great viewing angle - probably typical of these displays. (Loses some brightness if one moves more than about 15-20 degrees of perpendicular) ; Touch controls on the panel are invisible and not very sensitive. Better to use the remote

Great Monitor, Works well when used correctly

 

This monitor is a high quality product when used correctly. Many of the reviews and comments on other sites list the monitor as "faulty" or "bad quality" when it is usually an lower quality input to blame. I ran my 2010 17" MacBook Pro into it via VGA...

Excellent quality when using correct inputs and resolutions ; Sleek design and front "touch" buttons ; Many inputs, optical audio out

No way to use monitor's speakers for PCs

Worked right away with my MacBook Pro!

 

I have had a "Mid-2009" 15" MacBook Pro for about a year now, and had never connected an external monitor. I got a DVI mini display port adapter, a DVI-D extension cable, and this monitor. Bam! Right out of the gate - the monitor came up to the max...

Worked immediately with my MacBook Pro ; VESA mount option - eliminates any need for the included base to tilt, since I have a VESA desk-mount arm ; Menu system is sleek and easy to use ; Great looking text, images and movies

If the base tilted I might not take my old monitors off my desk-mount VESA stand. But since I have the desk stand, it's a non-issue. If I had to use the included base, I probably would not have purchased the monitor. It really needs a good tilt

Not just a pretty face.

 

I purchased this as a simple living room TV (and occassional monitor) on my wifes demand that I "buy something pretty". And this is a very handsome unit. It's hard to do justice in ink or even in pictures but this monitor is stunning. I know that...

Looks great (the monitor and the picture), versatile, scupltural

Absolutely stunning

 

I got rid of my 32" bravia 1080p 120hz for this and am very glad. colors are better than anything ive seen There is no cons at all, am a videophile and I have to say, the picture this reproduces even with 1080i from my hd/dvr from comcast is...

Everything ; Deep blacks without loss of picture, white whites without loss of picture, the best picture i've seen on any tv except of course the samsung led 2010 series

none at all

Amazing. Watch TV right on your computer monitor!

 

It really does what it is supposed to do and more. I've only had it a day and am using it as our temporary main TV in the living room until I can get the new Sony TVs that are coming out soon. Really there is nothing more that I want or need from this...

Plug anything into it. DVI-D, HDMI, VGA, Component, Composite, HD TV Tuner. Excellent picture for movies and computer applications. HUGE desktop!!! 24.6" diagonal is much bigger than you think. Reasonable price!!! HIGH Quality! LOOKS GREAT

Nothing at all

Good Value for the Money

 

Does not look great out of the box. Took me about an hour and half to configure settings and some research. If you are using as a monitor be sure to select the correct type such as DVI-PC if using HDMI cable to connect computer, otherwise you will see...

Aesthetically pleasing. Sleek design As a monitor: Clear and vibrant resolution. Many different config settings to choose from

Need to configure settings, since factory settings do it no justice. It was extremely blurry at first until I set to DVI-PC, now it looks perfect. Minor light bleed at top and bottom of screen, but only noticeable if you are using it in the dark
