Summary: When I purchased this, I was very worried over the negative reviews. I have had another ViewSonic (VX2435wm) as my main monitor for almost four years without any problems (other than it not liking HDMI inputs because the native resolution is 1920x1200).
Summary: I do 3D professionally, and I wanted to move away from the nVidia active glasses/emitter systems. There are not many choices for passive 3D, and ViewSonic is a brand which has been making monitors for a long time. I was not disappointed!
Summary: Overall would be really good, only gave it three stars because I got a product that 99% right but paid 100%
Pros: -Very good value -Super light weight -Crystal clear and super bright! -Speakers are good
Cons: -Tilt axis is a bit stiff, almost feels like you're going to break it to adjust. -Should have a better volume adjuster, too many steps to change volume -Customer Service (View Sonic) failed to help my issue. Got a dead pixel straight from unboxing. CS took two weeks to respond to tell me they're ...
Youtube 3d right out of box on Mac! But base is wobbly

Summary: I'm able to watch yt3d on youtube right out of the box on my Macbook Pro with this, using an HDMI cable & adapter that I already own (mine didn't come with an HDMI cable in the package, only DVI and XGA cables). Pretty impressive for a monitor under $250!
Summary: Updated: I have moved on to using a DLP 3D projector, especially for gaming as the crosstalk on these became too distracting to me in darker games, which are the majority of what I play. 3D DLP projectors have little to no crosstalk.
Summary: As monitors go, I'm not an expert and won't comment on qualities like brightness, contrast, blacks, sound etc. It works very well in 2D and what 3D I could manage to work(non-PC HDMI source), is what I expect from any decent passive 3D display.
Works as claimed, a good LCD monitor with an underwhelming stereo viewing effect.

Summary: I was attracted to this monitor because it was an inexpensive passive stereo viewing LCD panel. As far as LCD panels go, this one is pleasant to look at, with a matte finished screen. I found that viewing 2D images were in my opinion, striking.
Summary: I ordered this item, off because I wanted a new LED monitor with HDMI to use with my pc and game consoles. Add in the 3D capability and I was sold instantly. The color, contrast, size(upgrade from 19 inch) and in full 1080p greatness!! 2D display quality is amazing!
