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
Summary: quality monitor, I own 5 of these, and will only look for this model when recommending it to others. ViewSonic has been around for ages and make a quality product. On sale for 285 was an absolute steal, imho.
Summary: Our new 'go to' monitor for whenever we build a new work station at the office. We've bought 3 so far. We use them with MacMini's and they work great. There's no built in webcam, but we don't use that in our office. Color and clarity seems nice.
Pros: This is simply an all around great monitor for the price. It was a replacement for my old 19" ViewSonic that I bought back in 2005 and that one is still plugging away. I just hope this one lasts as long.
