Hanns G HZ281HPB 28-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Hannspree's 28-Inch Widescreen LCD Display Glossy black finish 27.5-Inch Active Matrix TFT LCD 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio 400cd/m2 brightness 16.7 million displayable colors 170/160 degree viewing angle anti-glare panel treatment, This is a beautiful screen. Firstly, it is large -- very large. It provides the user with a very large desktop surface in which to work. The colors are vibrant, the blacks are very black, and the whites, in particular, are very white. Some earlier-generation monitors tended to have a cream-colored off-white rather than a true white. Not this monitor--the whites are snowy-white and brilliant. This monitor is particularly nice for those of us who enjoy digital photography, as it beautifully displays digital photographs with true colors and superb and subtle contrast. I like to photograph egrets, hawks, and pelicans, and the contrast provided by this monitor captured the subtleties of the feather detail and the shading. The colors leave nothing to be desired. This monitor is also excellent for watching videos, given its fast refresh rate, bright colors, and excellent contrast. The manufacturer thoughtfully provides both an HDMI-DVI cable, and a VGA cable. The monitor will accept either any of these. Thus, the user will be up and running with this monitor in a few minutes. No set-up routine needed. Windows 7 recognized the monitor and the only thing I needed to do was to decide whether this was my primary or secondary monitor -- primary, natch. LCD monitors keep getting better and cheaper. This one is remarkably better than my earlier LCD monitors in terms of colors and contrast. Highly recommended. RJB.
