First Look

The monitor was protected inside the box by two foam inserts that held it in place, away from the sides of the box. A plastic sheet was also covering the monitor. Included with the LCD screen is a user's manual, VGA cable, audio cable, power cable and power "brick" adapter. Noticeably absent is a DVI cable or even a DVI-to-VGA adapter, which is disappointing considering the monitor has a DVI port.

Here we see the front portion of the monitor. The X2Gen nameplate is centered on the bottom portion of the plastic casing, with five buttons on the lower right side of the screen: Auto, Menu, +, - and Power. Note that these buttons are actually on the bottom of the screen; all you see from a direct view is the labels.

Nothing out of the ordinary around back. Here we find the typical ventilation slots surrounding the screen on three of the four sides and two stickers: one for the serial number and the other with model number, etc. There are four screw holes in the center so you can easily mount the monitor on a wall (wall mount not included). On the lower portion of the screen, we find the DC connector, Audio connector, VGA port and DVI ports, all in the usual locations.

The included plastic base seems to get the job done, allowing for front and back adjustments only. Sorry, no height or swivel action here. It shouldn't be too difficult to remove the base should you want to wall mount the screen.

Next up, installation, usage and conclusion!
