So what do you get for US$800-$900? Well if you want additional features and screen resolution, you also have to open your wallet a bit more. This monitor is not targeted to compete with your everyday garden variety monitor that you can pick up at Best buy for $150, and much like other specialized pieces of computer hardware, the premium price is easy to manage if you are in a field that requires this type of functionality.
First out is the user's manual, cleaning cloth and warranty paperwork and the software CD. Make sure you register this product to take advantage of your warranty. In no way you want to have to pony up the money to replace this monitor is some fluke problem occurs.
The hardware kit included a dual link DVI cable, two types of power cable for the adapter (depending on your needed configuration), a USB 3.0 cable along with an external power supply. Everything you should need is included.
And at last you have attached the base and you have your new and rather large monitor to consider. The first thing i noticed is the no-nonsense type of styling which is targeted towards function rather than form. Everything is matte black, angular and simple. Would I call is unattractive? Not necessarily. Most people in the business world don't really have an interest in how good their monitor looks and a good portion of home users who would be interested in this type of monitor would appreciate the same.
Let's move on to the next page and take a better look around this monitor and point out some interesting features.
