The price was better than any LCD TV I could find, and I'm happy with the results. I know they also have a 26" version, but I'm not sure how well that compares price-wise to getting a standard 26" LCD TV.

One of the main features this has that sold me on it is the ability to set the aspect ratio for viewing an SD source on a widescreen. The cheap 26" LCD TV I had prior to this monitor did not have that ability so all SD sources ended up being stretched across the entire screen. I just double checked, and can verify that it also does have a headphone jack.

The only issue with the monitor is that the tuner does not have an SVideo input so you either have to use the standard cable, or a high-def (either component, HDMI, or DVI) connection.
strange .. I replied to this and it didn't show up ( which happens sometimes on this site for some reason)
that is actually a good price, the only thing I would like though is a head phone plug in which I don't thing this has :(
