This monitor may be labeled as a multimedia gaming monitor, but it is easily that and more. To start with the nitty gritty, this behemoth has a 1280x1024 native resolution, 800:1 contrast ratio, 320cd/m2 brightness and a very nice 2ms response time for optimal gaming and minimal ghosting. The fun doesn't end there, either. This display has three USB 2.0 ports, DVI-D, D-SUB, 1.3-megapixel webcam, microphone/headphone inputs and even an integrated 2.1-channel speaker system that includes a fancy tube-like subwoofer on the back side. There are also a variety of audio and video modes depending on what type of game you are playing. First-person shooters, RPGs, and the like all have their own customized audio modes. And best of all, it looks pretty snazzy too, but who are you trying to impress with a sweet LCD?
