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: 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.
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.
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...
