The box came with the Monitor (NP), Power Cord (NP), Quick Start Guide, CD-ROM (NP), Remote Control (Includes Battery), HDMI Cable, DVI Cable (NP), VGA cable, USB Cable and Audio Cable.
The M2700HD has a massive list of input features such as D-sub, DVI-D, two HDMI 1.3, Headphone Jack, S/PDIF, Line in, Line out, S-Video, Composite, Component, Audio1, and Audio2. It also features four USB ports.
I was impressed with the "Theater-quality" sound produced by the integrated 10-watt sound system. This supposedly is made possible by EmbracingSound, a new stereo surround technology that enables the listener to experience their contentâ€™s full spatial information. There are five surround sound modes to choose from (Standard, Movie, Game, Pop, Rock) which offer many different sound options depending on the situation.
The M2700HD is an absolute beauty. I have been using it for about a month now with no complaints what so ever. Gaming has been beautiful at 1080p! I love running my PlayStation 3 straight into one of the HDMI ports. I now have a small appreciation for the intermission's in COD Multiplayer as I can switch modes using the remote and check my MSN, Facebook etc etc while the game loads.
To anyone wanting to buy the M2700HD go right on ahead! I promise you will not have any regrets.
+ Price (I got mine for $520 from Austin Computers in Perth)
+ Large amount of inputs

- Inbuilt speakers although loud, lack bass and depth.
