Summary: This monitor is great for the price. It looks and works great, and yes it can be adjusted easily. It has a disc,included but I just did plug and play and was up and running in 5 minutes. Just remember to adjust your display to 1600x900 initially and you will love this monitor.
Summary: Good for the price, but I wouldn't buy again if it weren't discounted. If you're looking for cheap-but-works, definitely go for it; if you have some extra money buy a little nicer 1080p or something with DVI/HDMI input
Pros: Decent picture, nice price, pretty good size
Summary: Be sure to check the specs tab before purchasing. I didn't verify DVI capability, so I can't knock off an egg for that. Very glad Newegg has a great RMA system to simplify returns. Thank you Newegg!
Pros: Looks great for a VGA-only display. For those of you who are used to digital displays (like DVI), you will probably be disappointed.
Stone dead out of the box -customer service at ViewSonic was nice

Summary: I am disabled with a lame left hand...you have to jam the power cord up into the receptacle <<hard>> The installation CD choked on Windows 8 The cable was VGA female at both ends and I had to shell out for an adaptor to plug into my noterbook. The monitor stand was cheesy and not adjustable. You have to download the drivers from their web site. The installation CD is useless.
Summary: I've known about Viewsonic for a number of years but never had the need for one. When ordering a new computer I suddenly had a need for a monitor and checked out all the reviews. This one looked to be good for my needs and the price was certainly right. The monitor is a good one and it literally worked fine right out of the box. I never even used the set-up disc. Clear, crisp, fast, etc. I'm not a gamer or a graphic artist so it meets my needs just fine.
Summary: The screen is everything I hoped for. I work online and it is very important for me to have a large, high quality screen. However, the stand for the screen is very poor. It is cheap plastic and requires aid in keeping the screen held upward, which is annoying. I guess I'm not sure why such a cheap stand would be provided for such a good screen.
