VA705B

BeneDee, Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: I needed a larger monitor, and I didn't need a widescreen. I had ViewSonic in a CRT model and I liked the resolution and vivid colors. I received the monitor in a matter of days and setup was easy. I am not disappointed. Resolution and colors are vivid and what I have come to expect from ViewSonic.

Solid monitor

  • Summary: Pros: * Not widescreen * 75 refresh * 1280x1024 native res * Easy on the eyes * Small footprint * Great for multi-monitor setup Negatives: * 17" instead of 19" but I knew I was buying 17, just wanted a 19 with similar specs, most 19s are widescreen though * Green power light (I like blue, I know,...

ViewSonic LCD

S. Shogrin, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a inexpensive MAG LCD monitor I got locally. I have an older 15" ViewSonic that's been on for years with no issues, ever. My Mag started power cycling for no reason, and now it won't do that, and the MAG was only a couple years old.

  • Summary: I have three of these monitors. I bought one almost two years ago for my eeePC (it's now on a desktop system), and recently I bought two more to use on a dual-head Linux system.

Backplane light misbehaves

Richard R. Slater, Amazon
21 October 2011
  • Summary: This monitor looks great whenever it is showing a 1024x768x16 or better graphics display (Windows Explorer, Linux X windows), but when it is necessary to display pure text, such as the BIOS messages seen during bootup, or when in Linux terminal mode, the display dims to a very low level that is...

Straight Forward Monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
24 June 2011
  • Summary: My next vga monitor will be a Viewsonic.
  • Pros: Used this monitor with about 5-10 different CCTV installations to connect to DVR's with VGA outputs. We've not had one come back due to failure, picture is usually quite nice, no DOA, and have had one in stock we've used on a few different demos for over a year. Has the quality I've come to know ...
  • Cons: Now Viewsonic offers an LED backlit version for about $15 less... more monitor, wide screen, less money, so I've switched to that model (also has worked well from one we've purchased.

Stephanie C., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought 4 and one was immediately poor quality output but the client did not complain. Said it was better than the Dell monitor he had previous.. The second died right after a months use. Already swapped cords and reset but that's what the RMA process is starting off with.
  • Pros: Good value for a 17
  • Cons: Bad picture on two of the 4 I bought. You can wiggle the cord and it will distort the picture even though the cable is tightly secured to the PC and the Monitor. Tap on lower left rear section and you can almost get the screen readable.
