Very large display with very disappointing performance

Summary: The picture is extremely grainy and washed out when plugged into my MacBook Pro (Late 2011). Not sharp at all. It's a TV being passed off as a monitor. A bad one at that. I have to turn the sharpness down to 30% to keep the jaggedness of the images from driving me nuts. I bought this monitor while I was deployed in Iraq and was really looking forward to having a great, big monitor to work with.
Love the Price and the Picture Quality and the Sound and the Everything Else

Summary: Since they first became available I have used ViewSonic monitors for work and at home. I like the brand. This monitor is bright and has great color depth even at the close range when used with a computer. It is incredibly flat and event he base takes up little space. Tall or short people can adjust the tilt although it is a little tight (at least it stays where you put it!). AFter a couple months I can find nothing to complain about.
Summary: I bought this because it was the size I wanted for my main computer monitor. I was happy with it initially, so I also bought a 27" ViewSonic unit to use as a secondary monitor. After using it for a while I noticed that text is rendered very poorly on the 32" monitor. The 27" is OK (but not spectacular), but the 32" is unacceptable. It looks as if they took the pixels from the 27" unit and just placed them further apart and left gaps between them.
Bad picture quality for most computer use, good for video

Summary: I ordered and returned this from another online merchant. It's exhilarating to get this 32" beast set up. And video was pure ecstasy. I don't have a T.V. and I don't have cable, so this is my only source of video entertainment. I watched Breaking Bad on my bed from about 8-9 feet away and it looked great. That's the good side. But, unfortunately, my main use for my computer is not entertainment and video. I spend most of my time with text, the web, and images.
Summary: Purchased for our estimating department so they did not have to print out the plans all the time. This size you don't have to strain to see the blue prints and is super bright. Very happy especially for the price point of this unit.
Summary: During the daytime it looks good. The display will only adjust brightness Low, Medium or High and low is plenty bright. I have a Surface Pro so very limited software adjustments. I tried lowering all the colors but the greyscale around text looks awful, and after waking up the adjustment is gone. If you have a video card with brightness control, you can probably run a higher res monitor. Unless the room is always bright when using, don't get this.
Summary: Before I trash this monitor, let me say that my wife and I buy an average ot two ViewSonic monitors every year, often more. We have two 24 inch and three 27 inch VS currently in use in our just our home offices, and she has a fourth 27 inch at her work office. We have always loved the large format HD monitors. Until this one. I bought it last month and this past weekend set it up on my desk, anticipating continued love for their products. What a disappointment!
