Summary: Old school, very high quality monitor, with lots of vertical space which is great for working with pages of text. I still have my old 1024x768 Viewsonic that just refuses to die. Now it sits in a box cause I just can't toss a perfectly working device. Since I bought it 10 years ago, I ran through an LG, an ASUS, a Sony and a Dell. ViewSonic just keeps on working. Buy it before they are gone for good - all that's made today are for movies, not for work.
Summary: Monitor works fine. Only 3 stars because the verbage in the ad indicated it was in very good used condition. I wouldn't quite consider it very good condition. I spent quite a bit of time working on cleaning the screen and couldn't get all the marks and gunk off of it. Also the packing for shipment was not the best either - just Styrofoam peanuts in a box.
Summary: It's bezels are large, it's resolution isn't "good", but boy do the colors pop because of the contrast. I would highly recommend this monitor, barring the 2 items listed above. It's been the work monitor for several years without fault.
Summary: this was a used monitor. The monitor looked like it had come from the showroom and it operates like new. I am using it as a home security screen and the colors are clear. I have an HP monitor for my desktop and it has no better picture than this ViewSonic.
Summary: Purchased this display on Ebay for a second computer because I already owned an Optiquest Q171b 17" LCD monitor (also made by Viewsonic) and liked it. The monitor uses very little desk space, and produces very clear and bright images and text...perfect for everyday emails, news, etc.
