With your new widescreen multifunction purchase you shall receive...
Just after you open the product box for the first time, you will receive a small bag with:
- Warranty Paperwork (Register for your Full 3 year warranty)
- Monitor Driver CD
- Analog Monitor Cable (No DVI cable is included)
- Quick Installation Guide (You won't need it.)
- Remote Control
- Batteries for the Remote Control
One thing that again disappointed me is the lack of a DVI monitor cable. Seeing that this monitor is indeed DVI capable, some users will find that this oversight could be potentially costly. DVI cables are not cheap and the cheaper cables are always poorly constructed. In my mind, if the monitor is dual capable, include both cable like in the previous product cycles and stop cutting corners.
Also included is an external power supply with its associated power cord. To keep the monitor as small and as cool as possible, an external power supply is always a smart alternative which can be easily hidden under your desk.
Once you have unwrapped your new prized possession, you will be able to perch your new stylish multifunction monitor on your home or office desk. Although it may be small, this monitor is no light weight and tips the scales at just over twenty pounds.
