This is a very stable monitor which will not fall over very easily. Both the image and sound are good. It has a headphone socket. The fresh rate is up to 75 Hz over HDMI which is what I mainly use. I purchased it for use with my server. I use the 60 HZ refresh rate on my virtual machines. The monitor has two HDMI v1.4 and one VGA socket. I have used it to view classical music concerts which are available on-demand on iview (in Australia). The on/off switch is like a joystick. Once you work it out, it is easy to use. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
