Summary: Fine monitor, games look great on it, SUPER irritating sound that I learned is the dimmer- sounds like a tiny little fan rattling in my monitor, when there's no background noise in the room. Still not immensely disappointed, quality enough product, probably better alternatives.
Summary: Bought two monitors, picture quality is very good, light weight but the stand allows the monitor to wobble to the slightest vibration. Not sure if I'm going to keep them. It's starting to get annoying.
Summary: The monitor is usable but I would not purchase it again or recommend it. I have two major issues with it: 1. It makes a humming noise that is noticeable in a quiet room. The noise becomes much louder if the screen is displaying mostly white areas. Then, I find the noise very annoying. 2. The screen colors and contrast are not as good as my five year old Samsung monitor. Playing with the screen menu settings didn't improve it much.
Summary: I received this monitor and set it up the same day (3 days ago). At first, I absolutely hated it and planned to return it. However, upon adjustments and "getting used to it," I'm thinking of keeping it. The resolution isn't that great, and I feel like I'm settling, but I just do not want to go through the trouble to repack it and send it back. I'm also tired of shopping around. Keeping it at the recommended resolution, the font is very small.
Summary: The monitor display exceeded my expectations. However, when the speaker cable was plugged in the speakers had a lot of feedback which caused a high pitch buzz you could hear from several feet away. I plan to stay with the Viewsonic brand, but will look for a monitor without speakers.
Summary: Good : Great monitor for the price. Product arrived without any damages. Bad : Tried installing the drivers provided for Windows 7 and they did not work. Tried the Vista drivers too and those did not work too. So used it for a while with the generic Windows 7 drivers. After a few days of use, started noticing green colored pixels on the screen. They would disappear when I turned the monitor off and turned it on again. After a while the green pixels would reappear.
Summary: This monitor arrived quickly and in great shape. It's a no-brainer to set up, and that's a good thing, because the one page instruction sheet is done in four languages. There's a CD that arrives with a pdf instruction manual, which I suppose is worth reading... especially if the dead spot on my screen gets any bigger. My first experience with dead pixels. Didn't show up immediately; waited until I threw out the box. A black curved line, so far about 1/4 inch long.
Summary: This monitor has great vivid color..and picture quality, however it did not have instructions on how to turn down or turn up color brightness..so far the speakers are not working..did not have instructions on them either..just how to plug it in..nothing else. At this point it has not been worth the price nor has it lived up to its advertising.
