Good monitor for word processing, videos, browsing and spreadsheets. Note there is no adjustments to monitor height / tilt. Refresh rate may be too slow for gaming.

This is a pretty good tv. It doesnt have any speakers on it, though it does have a output jack for a pair of headphones.The picture quality is amazing though, very sharp.
