Again, the service was great.

Sound is weak and a little tinny, but I don't use the built in speakers of any monitor outside of the test bench.

Text looks very sharp and colors look fine to me.

First, Great Monitor--don't let others fool you.

Second, don't ask me how long this took to find... i'm posting a tip here to save you time in case you own a Dell PC with a built-in ATI video card, or just one from ATI that might give you this problem...

If you get a black border (empty space) around your screen while using HDMI at 1920x1080, then don't give up! It's a VIDEO CARD setting ATI caused due to overscanning that can be fixed! It is not a problem w/ the monitor.

The over and under scan (scaling options) are quite buried in the new ATI Catalyst Control Center. But if you know where to look the scaling options are really easy to get to...

1) Right click on the Desktop and open Catalyst Control Center 9.9
2) Switch to Advanced mode if you are not there already
3) Click dropdown menu Graphics in the top right
4) Select Desktops and Displays
5) Right Click your currently activated display under `Please Select a Display' on the bottom right
6) Select Configure
7) Click on the Scaling Options tab and your there
8) Now, just move the scale to the right (overscan) until you get full screen (in my case that was 0%)

i would love to give credit for this to the proper people but i can't link in comments. Just search google for "ati-catalyst-9-9-overcan-and-underscan-options".

NOTE: if you can't find these settings in your ati control panel, seach google for: "Removing ATI Underscan from your HDMI LCD TV"

Good Luck!

I bought this after trying the hp 2711x. The hp monitor had a very glossy display so reflections showed up easily. It can be distracting when you're viewing a dark image on the screen. I never heard of planar before, but I decided I'd give them a try since they had what I was looking for. It has a matte display so you don't have to deal with any reflections. Out of the box the colors are just right. I liked the default brightness, but it can be adjusted if it's too bright. Text appears better than on the 2711x. This is a real plug in and play monitor. I hooked it up and started playing my favorite games. 27 inches is awesome for gaming even though the resolution is only 1080p. Oh and the monitor came packaged very good. There were no dead pixels and very minimal back-light bleed at the edge of the monitor. When all is said and done, this is a headache free display with good image quality. Good luck and thanks for reading.

Overall the monitor is great, even more so at $250.00 (search around for this price).

Pros:
-size, brightness, and resolution
-built-in speakers
-vga, dvi, hdmi connectors
-no problems unpacking and setting up

Cons:
-no way to adjust height (I used a ream of paper under the base and solved the problem)
-the volume from the speakers is good, but they do sound tiny (but I prefer this to standalone speakers, so it works for me)

It is great for working with photographs and multiple documents.

This is the third Planar monitor I own, upgrading to a larger size, and they have all been great (I always go for the built-in speakers models). I highly recommend this, specially at this price point.

Update 10-Nov-2011: So two more things:

1) I have decided to go for it and am getting two more. Dell just sent me a "special deal" on gift cards, and these monitors are on sale again @dell so I figure why not. I have also found a web page [...] that shows how to build your own "multi-monitor stand" if you know someone who can weld. But I got one of those. He is my step-dad Joe and he is the best welder I know. He fixed all the rust in my car 22 years ago. Hey Joe... I got a job for you... Of course now I will need to upgrade my video card at some point to actually use more than two monitors. I wonder if there is a 480gtx in EVGA (B) stock?

2) I have to say again that 27" is the largest I would go for a 1920x1080 (1080p) resolution. Any larger than @27" and the picture gets grainy so we are really at the forward end of good viewing. Even at 27" you can sometimes see the strips of pixels running up and down the monitor if you look real close. Can depend a lot on the web page and fonts used. But I don't see it when gaming. Now lets see how these do with a lower resolution game like StrongHold hehe.

Got a pair, they are awesome!!! Update 10-nov-2011

The UPS driver dropped them off @12:30pm today. I have been using them for about four hours now. These beauties are HUGE but at the same time, are the biggest I would go for 1080p resolution. Bigger is not always better. As screen size gets bigger, pixel density opens up making for more granulated pictures. These babies are sharp. 27" is to me anyway the best size for a 1920x1080 monitor.

I got two of these.

Verified Purchase
I just bought a Samsung SyncMaster P2770 at Costco for $280. It was to replace a burnt out Viewsonic monitor. The Samsung's picture was not acceptable, trying various adjustments including the auto-tuning software that came with it. The definition in the Samsung was so poor that rendered the monitor not usable. I got the Planar as a replacement for it from Amazon for less than $300. The difference was immediate. The image is much richer and the definition superior. I am glad I made the switch. Setting up the Planar was totally automatic on my Windows 7 machine. Although there is no vertical height adjustment, I am able to use the tilt feature to compensate.
