ViewSonic Monitor

HiJack, Staples
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I like my new Monitor. The main problem I have with it is that it came to me needing a good recalibration. It works well but the alignment is about 1 inch off at the edges. Because of this, I have no luck doing any swiping at any of the sides or corners. It is not Staples fault. They received it that way. I don't know how to fix it yet, but when I learn enough from the manuals and users guide, I hope to be able to fix it right.

Nightmare

Robert B., Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: From reading the reviews I knew that this monitor was not great for Windows 8 but I run Win7 at my job and even if we go to Win 8 or 9 I will not need the side swipe. So I got 18 of them for my job and everything was great for the first month or two and then the nightmare started, One by one the monitor's HDMI input would start failing and the picture would turn pink, at this point all 18 have failed and were returned for repair at least once and some have been return...

Not So Hot

William B., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: ViewSonic TD2420 Black 23.6" Optical Multi-Touch Monitor 200 cd/m2 1000:1 Built-in Speakers The monitor is fine for viewing. The touch experience leaves much to be desired. I read one review that told how to recalibrate the touch. I found how to do it and saw no change in performance. It is dreadful from side touches. Touch seems to work fin in the center of the spring but at the edges swiping just is abysmal. The speakers have been problamatic as well.
  • Pros: screen looks good
  • Cons: touch feature is abysmal sound is so-so

Touchscreen FTW

Ryan A., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Summary: ViewSonic should do a write up on how to get swipe gestures for windows 8 working so we can appreciate it all the more.
  • Pros: Great monitor for use with windows 7 or 8
  • Cons: Swipe gestures. I have tried re calibrating several times to get my swipe gestures to work and have failed. I know there must be a way to do it I just haven't put the time in to figure it out...

Much better than I'd anticipated

Mister Incredible, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: I read the myriad negative reviews about this monitor repeatedly and waited for a long time before ordering, but I should not have been hesitant. I absolutely love this thing. I should say up front that I am running Windows 7, not 8, and I have not experienced any of the problems outlined by any of the other reviewers.

Always On Pixel

C. Miltenberger, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Touch screen worked fine for my purposes both in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 after some set-up. But came with one always on pixel. ViewSonic says they allow three. I've never had any pixel issues with other brands I've had (Samsung, Sony, etc.

Bad for Win 8 Edge Gestures, Mediocre Swipe Sensitivity

Chip P., Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: The ViewSonic TD2420 Monitor...NOT RECOMMENDED! I bought one of these for my 91 year old father. My father was able to work my ASUS Laptop OK (Q55OL, 16", i7-4700, 1TB, Windows 8, FULL TOUCHSCREEN). So I bought this monitor to help him with his new Win 8 desktop computer. (Aside: I recommend the ASUS Q55OL Laptop with 5 Stars!) Big problem with this monitor; you CAN'T do edge gestures! That's terrible.
