Read over the reviews at least 10 times weighing the pros and cons but I decided to go for it and I'm glad that I did! Like others stated, it took maybe 5-6 minutes to unpack and get up and running. I wanted a larger screen to use when I work from home as my 10 inch laptop keeps me squinting and bending over. The monitor is SUPER lightweight and very sleek. It comes with the VGA cord but no HDMI cord, luckily I have several laying around the house. I did have to prop it up a bit in the front since there is no tilt option, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me. I use this for basic internet and word processing, no gaming or watching movies and it's been working great for me!
