The monitor itself is a bit drab looking; at the very best you could say it’s nothing fancy. Matt black plastic frame supported by a wide, tray like base. This space I actually quite like as it would make for a good place for putting USB drives, DVDs etc.
The bottom right has labels for the underside buttons, offering up Auto, Menu, left/right, enter and power. There’s also a couple of feature logos including “LED”, “120hz” and “Senseye 3”.
The left handside has a headphone jack, but no mic port. This seems dumb as not only is it an incomplete headset port system, but you have to had audio running to the monitor via HDMI if you want it to work. Why wouldn’t I just plug my headset into the sound card?
The screen is attached to a pretty flexible arm at its rear that allows it to rotate and move up and down quite a stretch.
There’s a surprising lack of connectors on the back of this thing. Only DVI, VGA and HDMI. No component, no composite; meaning that Xbox, PS3 or Wii connectivity is impossible with the stock cabling.
The underside has several rubber feet to hold the monitor in place should it get budged accidently. No sliding around for this display.
