Summary: Ok, Ok, I know, just turn the base and you have more swivel, however with the odd shape of the base this can make swiveling difficult in the right conditions (Different desk designs.) also the speaker output could be a little louder.
Pros: Very nice color depth, and resolution. auto switching of DVI and VGA ports. built in speakers.
Cons: Low quality of sound and output of speakers. Needs more swivel and tilt.
Summary: My customer requested the best cheap monitor that I could find for a dual monitor setup. I bought two of these. I had to buy an HDMI-to-DVI cable for one of the monitors and a DVI cable for the other since I wouldn't dare delivery an old fashion VGA cable.
Pros: Nice and bright with no dead pixels. It has a very nice look and feel.
Cons: The color is okay, but not remarkable. It doesn't come with a DVI cable, but it state that in the details so it's not really a con, but it really should come with one. The speakers are very low quality (as expected).
Summary: I would never give a ViewSonic monitor less than the full five points except for this unfortunate design. If you plan to wall mount this monitor, make sure that you either do not need to tilt it down, or that you can put a recess in the wall for the power cord (not a possibility in our application).
Pros: ViewSonic makes some of the best screens I have tested, and I'm sure that this model is another example of that. This screen is a very slim design model as well. (However, could not actually use it at all, due to cons.)
Cons: The positioning of the power cord is unfortunate, as it is right where the frame of at least many wall mounts will be when tilted down. The power cord stick straight back, and the supplied cord is not a 90 degree one, either. Using such a cord would help, but not completely remedy the situation.
