I just received my monitor. Not a single dead pixel! The only problem is some minor "light bleeding" along the top of the frame... I believe most current large scale panels have this problem though (my friend's 24" Dell has it as well).

Also keep in mind that this is 1650x1080... so it'll be the same resolution as most 20" models, just physically larger.

The view range is good on the "horizontal" plane... meaning you can walk to either side of it and the image is still bright and clear. However, it's terrible on the "vertical" plane. Make sure that the monitor is at eye level and you'll be fine. An adjustable pivotable stand would've been nice to alleviate this problem, but as the other reviews state, the included version is a simple and crude platform stand.

To sum up, the monitor exceeds my expectations where they counted... It's perfect for a gaming monitor (~5ms response!), and the screen feels "just right" to me as a middle ground between the (slightly too small) 20" and (slightly too large/way too expensive) 24" models. Highly recommended.

Outstanding price for this, Newegg has some reviews upon it, it might be a flimsy stand according to one of them.
