Great display,
None as of yet.
Bought this for my dad to use with his media PC. He loves it and has no complains.

pretty clear picture, good value
colors aren't the best
Got this thing for a dual monitor setup at work. I didn't have the go ahead to spend a fortune so I went the economy route and got this thing at a good price match. Would buy again, hasn't disappointed or frustrated me yet.

Nice brightness, no dead pixels
menu interface not easy
I got this monitor for under $100 and put it up on a mount above my desk. It works great. I am happy with it. Excellent value.

Bright, vivid and sharp. Gamma control is a nice feature also.
At $100 free shipped there're no cons.
Played some MKV and MP4 vids looks very good, played some fps games also very good.

Sad to say but the benq mva is better to look at than the ultrasharp 24" 1080p ips panel.

$90-100 you can't do much better.

Controls would've been better at the bottom right corner instead of the lower side but not a big deal.

Brilliant Image Quality
No Cons
Upscaled content looks very impressive as well. 720p videos look nearly as impressive as 1080 with no signs of dithering or patches appearing. DVD quality content of course isn’t as accurate, but colours look good and it’s still a decent panel for movie playback. Photos look good and there’s little sign of banding, which we were expecting to find.

We also noticed that the backlighting wasn’t even all throughout with faint patches in some areas of the screen, especially in the corners. Viewing angles are pretty impressive with only brightness taking a slight hit. Colours appear close to normal from the sides. Being a VA panel, there’s almost no visible input lag, which is good if you’re using the monitor for gaming.

-No dead/stuck pixels
-Don't notice any ghosting
-LED is nice too. Don't have the CCFL warmup delay or have to worry about excessive power cycling. 25W power consumption isn't bad, either.;)
-No DVI cable included
-Moderate backlight bleed even at lower brightness levels. Always heard MVA was great for blacks, but they're quite bright on this.
I'm not sure what I expected for $110, but I'm pretty happy with this monitor. Not using it myself, but it looked good during initial setup. Plugged into HDMI->DVI cable and that was pretty much all I had to do. Didn't notice any ghosting while scrolling. No dead pixels. Haven't knowingly used an MVA/PVA panel before, so I can't comment on its relative quality.

No DVI cable; just the useless DB15 that probably costs the same to manufacture. cmon! Someone said the stand was flimsy, but that's definitely not the case. No screws, but the monitor is pretty light. great for office use, movies, whatever.

Panel is an AU Optronics M215HW02, if you're comparing different brands. This seems to consistently be the cheapest 1920x1080 in the 21"+ category.

A decent monitor for the price. Just needed to replace an old CRT.

1080p 21inch at $90 from a good brand is not common.
Stand is wobbly and unstable
Part of a budget build for a family member. Besides the wobbly base, the screen looks quite pleasing to the eye. Not for hardcore use but is more than sufficient for casual users.

Great Price and Easy setup
Awkward placement of power button on side of monitor
Picked up 2 of these in a boxing day bundle deal to replace 2 19-inch monitors. Great picture for everyday computing needs. The only gripe is that the power button is on the right side of the monitor instead of the bottom which make turning them on and off manually a pain.
