DO NOT GET THIS MONITOR. well, at least if you intend on watching a lot of movies or playing console games. there is NO way that this monitor can do 1:1 pixel mapping, which is a problem because it is 16:10 aspect ratio as opposed to normal movie widescree 16:9. this means anything that is not coming from your computer (whether it be hdmi or dvi) will be stretched to fill the entire screen. the only way to have it 1:1 is to have it played through your computer that would put in the black bars itself. and yeah, it has been out for a while now.

But is there no pass-through digital audio port so that you can have some sound along with your HD video? Seems like a problem, seeing that they're both in the same cable. Minor oversight there?

Not really - just use one of the other audio outputs on whatever source. Saves having more cables hanging off your screen, which is by definition visible.
