It is very slim, measuring just 16 x 22 x 7 inches and stands on a metal bezel that allows it to be tilted extensively up to 21-inches backward and 4-inches forward. With a 178-degree viewing angle, multiple people can together watch a movie on it. You can change the settings with touch-based controls placed on the bottom-right on the bezel. The VGA and HDMI connectors are placed at the back, just above the stand.
The monitor offers appropriate brightness modes for various tasks. So you have modes for games, viewing documents, movies, multimedia, etc. You just have to select the desired mode and the monitor will alter to a suitable brightness level. The Easy Arrange software offers to tile your applications so you can see them all in a single glance.
Bottomline: A good buy for the said price, however, do check out the Acer S235HL LCD monitor available for R12k, because it offers full HD visuals with the same configuration at a lower price.
