I was looking for a monitor where I could connect two devices up to it (my PC and Xbox 360) and because my television had finally gave up. This one seemed a good choice as it had a DVI port and HDMI port. 24" is a decent size for me (I was good with a 19" display before).
The native resolution is 1920x1080, which is superb for games on PC. Although, of course, when browsing the web, there's a lot of space on either side as most are suited for smaller resolutions. It's not a big deal but was expected. On a console, like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 you can crank it up to 1080p on HDMI too.
If you're one for having both devices on at once, then you can simply change from one input to the other by holding down a button on the front of the monitor. So, sometimes I switch from DVI to HDMI in order to access my Xbox 360. If you're switching back to the PC, make sure you 'awake' the computer if you've got it to turn off the monitor after a certain time. Otherwise, the display will just go back to the active input.
One thing I do not like is when I turn my Xbox 360, the display doesn't come on right away - it will clip away a part of the logo sequence. It's only a short delay but once the monitor is on there should be no problems.
Surprisingly, the sound on this monitor is good but not amazing. It's acceptable being a monitor. Setting up the monitor didn't take long. You just put the base on with the provided tools. Just tightening a few screws and you're done.
The monitor can be moved into a portrait view, it can be raised and there are energy saving options on the OSD. Don't be fooled by the big brands like 'Acer' and 'Samsung' - this monitor by Iiyama works just fine and is a very good quality monitor. One purchase this year I don't regret.
