    I am using my 20" phillips monitor as a tv and computer monitor, all at once without any prob. By the way, is this an IPS panel monitor?

    Agreed. But response rate is 7ms, so it is not so good for a gaming monitor i guess, but considering spec, price & IPS panel....looks great indeed.

    its response time is 7ms overdrive which means its actual response time is much ones higher than that. I think this monitor is bad for gaming.

    If you want to know about overdrive response time check out this link

    Actually i used this monitor and my opinion about it, you may hardly find the difference in realtime performance rather than theoritical yah talking about the 7ms and 5ms regular difference and also didnt even find any blacklist filtering issues and the only con is it not came with a dvi port only vga and hdmi. If you want to watch movies and tv only then its a great choice

    How is pic quality when it comes to office work (word-processing, spreadsheets)?
    Colors come out ok?
    Does it strain the eye?
    How is the ergonomics?
    Is it adjustable?
    Viewing area large enough?

    1. quality is great when you browse the net and do works in ms office this monitor suits properly and also its driver has options about adjustment

    2. sorry i really dont know what is actually color out thing is, so cant say

    3.i always use fluex software so didnt test directly but it shouldnt i guess

    4. the monitor is ergonomic like other monitors

    5. in below 720p this monitor seems blurry but in 720p + resolution this monitor is very much adjustable

    6. viewing area is great, in offline you can use it as mirror panel is very much crystal and clear
