Summary: there were a few issues about the screen that I wish they would have told us when stated online. There are/were a few dots that had not output at all. For cost it is a 90% but for as advertised I would give it a 50%.
Summary: I originally ordered these monitors for each of my teenage kids as a Christmas present to replace older CRT's and to free up desk space. As a technology buff, I have been surprised to find myself shopping for electronics on Amazon; however, I must admit that I have been pleased with the selection of high-quality items available, the free shipping deals, and with their prices.
Summary: I had a bad experience with this monitor (and Viewsonic) recently; I received the VA1926w after RMA'ing a VA1912wb which had an area of dark pixels at the top of the screen. After a lengthy RMA process (two months, not terrible, I suppose, but certainly not good) I received the VA1926w, and as it happened, the monitor sat, unused, for several months.
