I wonder if the TV can actually display 1920x1200 from a computer over HDMI. From the screenshots, it does indeed measure out at 16:10, so it's unlikely to be a spec typo.
If so, that's a great deal for 1920x1200 monitor, but getting rid of that butt ugly casing will be time consuming...

I was at a Hannspree boutique store in NY once... it was strange to see how many different things they can make the TV look like... a basketball, a baseball, assorted fruit, assorted animals, etc.

Is the basketball just like a cover? Could you remove it and still have a framed TV? Thanks, C-

I thought the same thing, if you could remove the basketball this could be a sick monitor, little googling seems to imply it cannot be removed though.

If basketball isn't your thing, you can imagine it's the top view of a Kaiser roll.

Man... I wanna get this to use as a monitor at work so bad I can taste it... can only imagine the look on my bosses face the first time he walked into my office and saw this hideous looking monitor sitting on my desk. LMAO.

The box says 1920 x 1200It won't display 1920x1080 through VGA without 2 blue bars. If you want VGA fullscreen it's 1920 x 1200. HDMI? 1920x1080 no problem.
