The monitor is housed in a black casing with silver trim on the sides, and the base of the monitor is also silver. There are four buttons on the front of the monitor - the power button, "Auto", "Menu", "<", ">", and "e" for the "Empowering Technology" menu, which is where you can switch between five presets, including "Movie", "Graphics", "Standard", "User", and "Text". When the monitor is powered on, a blue LED shines above the power button. One downside to this monitor is that there is no height adjustment, just a viewing angle adjustment.
As you can see, the viewing angle can be changed to about forty-five degrees from the standard 90 degree angle. On the underside of the monitor, you'll find three connectors - one for each HDMI, DVI-D IN, and VGA IN; adjacent to these connectors is the power port.
Included with the monitor are a VGA cable, driver CD, manual and quick start guide. Everything is neatly packed in a plastic bag to reduce clutter.
Now, let's install the monitor software and get everything configured!
