True, but it is certainly more comforting to see it in writing.

Also, when a unit is so much cheaper than competing units, one has to  
wonder why, and sometimes the "why" is a surprise  like no HDCP. When  
a specific mention is missing I want to check, just cynical I guess.

The only criticism I could make of the published specs on that  
monitor is that I'd like to see a little more brightness, but the  
stated spec is adequate.

But I'd suggest that anyone thinking of buying any sort of monitor by  
mail-order try and find a local store that's selling the same unit,  
always nice to "see for one's self" things like image quality, which  
have subjective qualities that go beyond the specs.
