    Hi poorpoor thanks for the many pics. I got my U2442V yesterday and was going to take pics but you had every angle covered!

    It really is a nice piece of kit, can I ask if you updated any drivers or BIOS?

    I had a bit of a scare where I lost the Touchpad (yes it was set on) I think it happened after doing waiting W8 updates, anyway I rolled back the driver which fixed it but also downloaded the latest just in case, so far so good.

    Any tips, observations appreciated.

    Cheers

    Alan
