What is it?
A fairy priced 1080p monitor that is loaded with some great features and sports a beautiful 23 inch display.

Pros:

-          Relatively inexpensive
-          Menu Buttons on the front
-          Inputs and output point down rather than out the back
-          $20 Mail in Rebate if you order before March 31, 2013

Cons:
-          Built in Speakers are Kind of Meh…
-          Not 3D capable (though there is a version that is….)
-          Not Naturally wall mountable  
-          Doesn’t shop with HDMI Cable
-          No USBs


My Thoughts:
Well, originally I was going to sell this before I even opened this to one of my friends. When he reneged on the deal I figured I might just return it. I’m totally glad I didn’t. It is hard to find things that I really don’t like about it. My main issue is that the speakers are mediocre but what built in ones aren’t? Right now I am not completely sure what I’m going to use it for but it has so many connectivity options that I can use it for just about anything (Might use it to hook up my secondary Xbox 360 to). I you are looking for a good 1080p LED monitor look no further this one has it all (except 3D and USBs) for a fair price.
