I bought this monitor to replace an old LCD 19". I'm into photography and wanted it for viewing my pictures as large as possible. This is absolutely superb for the money. The resolution is really good and there is so much more detail visible in my photographs than with the old monitor. The colours are very vivid. It even looks good. My only gripe is that the brightness is set on full out of the box, but this is easy to sort so it still gets 5 stars!
