Cons

TN panel - cheap to produce and sell at the expense of viewing angles and colour quality

6 agree

cheap stand - tilt and swivel only

4 agree

integrated speakers are crappy - the same as all other built-in monitor speakers

2 agree

16:9 aspect ratio is not great for web browsing, productivity software

2 agree

It only has one digital input. You can't switch between sources as there is no other source. You'll need a good KVM to do that.

1 agrees

There are no integrated speakers

How do I connect a gaming system to this tv? I cannot figure out where the input command is?

From what I can gather, it can properly display 24p over HDMI, but not DVI. More research is needed, but if no refute can be found against this Monitor/TV hybrid displaying 1080/24p, then this is a good monitor/tv hybrid, ideal for movie watching.

I have yet to find or use the HDTV or speakers.

For me it is new out of the box today. It was very easy to set up and ties in nicely. It has a 70,000:1 contrast ratio and that means the black is very black. I picked this up at Costco for $349. I'm pretty impressed with it so far. The optimal resolution is 1920x1080 so make sure your video goes that high.
