Bottom line: It's a screen. I hooked it up with an HDMI and got a bigger picture than from my smaller laptop.
My issue: I don't know how to put it in words, but reading reviews you sort of expect some screens to offer better picture quality than others. In the end, this screen is very similar to a much cheaper HP screen I happen to have at work. The resolution is derived more from the software than the hardware. Had I known I might have ordered a cheaper one.
It is pretty, however, and the bevel is narrow as promised.
