Summary: Good monitor and should help reduce operating expenses due to the use of LEDs. My old monitor had several USB ports and this one doesn't but the ones on my original monitor did not function much beyond the first 3 years.
Summary: This is a great monitor, especially for the price I paid. However, one of the reasons I bought it was because it had built-in speakers. Guess I should have listened to the other reviews regarding that, because the speakers are horrible. I had to put the volume at maximum just to get a reasonable level of sound, and the sound quality is really bad. But, other than that, it's a great monitor, so if you don't mind buying separate speakers, it's a good deal.
Excerpt: Although I have had great success with ViewSonic in the past, this monitor did not work - the packaging was in tact with no damage but the monitor would not turn on - I tried multiple power cords and outlets but it just did not work. Returned to Office Depot who gave an immediate refund.
Summary: You can't go wrong with these for the price. I have bought at least 8 of these for the office. The thin frame makes them ideal for dual monitor setups. If you overlap the edges, there is only about a 3/4 inch line between them. You don't really even notice it. Put them on a post desk stand and it looks very high tech. I have been using them for years and I can't tell the new ones from the first ones I bought.
Using with Mac Mini, looks great, plug and play, needs a cable, poor sound

Summary: I bought this monitor for my new mac mini and am very happy. This monitor has no dvi or hdmi cable, only vga cabling included. It has both VGA and DVI inputs. The mac mini has neither DVI nor VGA output, but does have an HDMI port, and comes with an HDMI to DVI adapter. This means if you will be using this monitor with a mac mini you can use a cable which is DVI to DVI, using the Apple adapter that came with the mac mini, or alternately a cable that has HDMI at one end...
Summary: Large monitors for both of my computers (one a laptop) died in the same week. This one replaced a glossy screen which created great difficulty in viewing. The matte surface and sharp images on this one are a joy. I've also used it for streaming movies and programs which was really impossible with the old one. I plan to buy one for my laptop in the future when I can afford it. That it's green is also a plus.
Summary: I thought this monitor gonna be heavy, compare with my other Viewsonic 24" Vg2428m. It was so light and its power and video cable are long enough. CON: You have to spend extra money to buy the DVI cable for it.
Summary: I upgraded my parent's 19-inch Dell 4:3 LCD to this 24-inch 16:9 and it's great. The old Dell Celeron desktop it is connected to had difficulty with displaying 1920x1080 resolution, so I tried upgrading the Windows XP drivers. I first tried using the Intel graphics drivers, but, they were rejected, recommending using drivers from the OEM. I downloaded the drivers from Dell and that fixed the problem.
