Summary: View Sonic makes and excellent monitor. This screen is clear and crisp and although it is only 1080p, it looks as good as my ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch WQHD LED-lit Professional Graphics Monitor which is 2560 x 1440 and much more expensive. Other than that this is the best deal for the money, because I would not ever purchase another Asus 2560 monitor. Why?, because the Korean monitors are cheaper and have a much cleaner picture, such as QNIX and Crossover.
Excerpt: Love these Monitors, I have 2...People always comment on them when they come into my office..So, I've had the 1st one of these I bought for almost 3 years...I'm using it now and it's still working great...It's on pretty much 24/7 365...so...Definitely reliable.
Summary: Little pricey but I trust Viewsonic's monitors. 2nd one I have bought and so far I have had no issues.
Pros: Perfect display for my 2nd 27" Out of the box it was easy to put together and everything was as expected
Cons: Short stand. I set it up next to another 27" monitor from Viewsonic and had secretly hoped it would be the same height but it is considerably shorter. Small complaint as everything else was perfect
Pros: Very light weight, great picture and great price. I love this monitor! I have used many Viewsonic products over the years and I feel that they have kept their standards very high and have consistantly developed great products.
Cons: Viewsonic seems to go to great lengths to hide the power and control buttons on the screen border. I have a terrible time seeing them. Maybe some people like the hidden buttons. I don't
Summary: this monitor has a high VESA mount compared to my other 27" ViewSonic monitors-- both the VA2702w and 2703, which are discontinued, have a much lower VESA mount and had to be adjusted to line up
Pros: looks good, energy star, lightweight, bright,
Cons: power light is huge! it could direct planes landing.
Summary: I'm giving this monitor two eggs, because I have to RMA it due to the sheer amount of stuck pixel groupings. To top that off, I continue to see more and more stuck pixels pile up, and using methods mentioned online do not work. This is my first ViewSonic monitor, and for a company claiming they use the highest quality pixels in the industry, they certainly are wrong with this unit.
Pros: 3.4ms response time Impressive color and contrast
