Overall I would have to say that if you are looking for large monitor over the 22" size, the V7 D24W33 is something to seriously consider. If price is also a point in your buying plans the D24W33 also offers an excellent price point and you will be able to find this model on line in the $399.00 range shortly after it spreads around the various retailers and e-tailors. The MSRP is set so that the V7 group does not compete with its own partners and deals will be available through many companies soon. Like almost every monitor I have ever owned the onboard speakers are adequate at best and not high-end by any means. For all the good that is here though and the addition of a 3-year warranty this monitor deserves an Gamer's Choice Award as its few drawbacks equal to about zilch in the big picture.
