PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH
With a multifunction monitor, regular computer use can be seen as only the tip of the iceberg.
One of the noted 172MP improvements is the remote control. It's smaller, thinner, lighter and just as full-featured as the preceding year. Everything that can be accomplished through the front menu panel can be done through the remote from across the room.
First off, one of the monitor's interesting features is its touch keys. Every menu and function button does not have to be pressed, but only brushed with your fingertip. I won't be boring you with a full run down on the configuration menu seeing that it is so unbelievably simple and easy to configure/setup this monitor as a TV or just as a standard monitor. If you can program your ordinary TV, you will have no problem setting up this monitor in less than two minutes.
Decent sounding speakers are included which could save you some money. The speakers are not intended to make up for a home theater system, but they do sound good. If you per chance need a little more bump in your sound, you can take advantage of the headphone jack on the left hand side of the monitor and strap on a set of studio headphones.
