Solo Bueno

jito1407, Ebay
11 October 2012
  • Summary: Estos monitores los compre para remplazar uno de mi cuñado y otro de mi padre. Los compre debido a su calidad y su precio más comodo comparado con otros, en realidad no me esperaba que los parlantes incluidos sonaran tan bien, sorpresa suenan solo bueno, fue una de esas compras que sobrepasan tus espectativas, además de que ésta marca en especial la había utilzado, entonces sabía la calidad que estaba comprando y hasta el momento están trabajando sin problema alguno...

Better than what I had...

  • Summary: I think this monitor is of good quality. However, my opinion is based on I used to have one of those 15" big clunkers. This monitor is nice and big. It does not seem cheap to me. I let my 3 year old play on the computer and have no fear of him breaking the monitor. He doesn't get too crazy with the screen anyway.

great monitor for the price

Angie the shopper, Amazon
18 August 2007
  • Summary: The monitor was easy to set up. The color was very sharp at first but after adjusting it's fine now. I did not notice any dead pixel yet. The speakers work fine for me. I am very happy with the purchase. Amazon.com is fast in delivery ($9.95 delivery charge) and the monitor arrived in good shape. I would recommend this to my friend and I might get another one for my other computer. The reviews are very helpful.

Excellent

Dan "Dan", Amazon
6 June 2007
  • Summary: I recently purchased this monitor, not from Amazon, but from another retailer (it was only a few dollars cheaper than Amazon's great price). Contrary to one of the reviews, it does come with a DVI adapter (and VGA). The monitor is very clear, looks sharp, and is a great deal. The speakers leave a lot to be desired, but with a total power of 2 watts, what do you expect? It's still a nice added feature. This monitor is so good, I'm definitely buying another one!

Nice Picture, Terrible Life

A. Kintz "ack154", Amazon
5 June 2007
  • Summary: I have one of these at work. It was new out of the box probably two months ago and already has images starting to burn in. That is just pathetic. The speakers are "OK" for integrated monitor speakers. The picture quality is very nice at it's native resolution... but I wouldn't recommend this monitor to anyone. Ever. Burn in after just a few months is totally unacceptable.

WARNING: IMAGE BURNS

Daniel Garcia "DanMan10", Amazon
7 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this monitor and about six months later images began to burn-in across the top of the screen. I'm not talking about images that burn in after you leave a program open for eight hours without a screensaver. No, this monitor gets image burns after using a program - ANY PROGRAM - for only a few minutes. They do go away...if you turn your monitor off and unplug it from the power source FOR ABOUT A WEEK!

Poor quality and poor manufacturer support

Rotorboy, Amazon
24 May 2006
  • Summary: When I first got this monitor I was thrilled. It's sleek looking and the 2 inputs were nice, since I could use it for 2 machines. I started to notice there's a lot of light bleeding in on the edges... a lot more than I notice on my LG or my Dell Notebook screen. Then I was faced with a permanent green stripe down the left side. After much trouble, I finally got a replacement sent from Viewsonic. The replacement is almost as bad.

Well worth the price!

The Girl in the Red Sweater, Amazon
10 May 2006
  • Summary: ViewSonic has not let me down yet! Their monitors last forever and they're top quality - hence the price. You will not get a better value for your dollar. I am a graphic designer who has to stare at pictures and text all day long and this monitor is really easy on my eyes. It has good contrast, brightness, and color controls, and text is crisp and clear. It comes with two cables - regular VGA and digital DVI.

good monitor, over-priced

Jessica Aimone "chicago starlet", Amazon
23 February 2006
  • Summary: After my first monitor was ordered I did have a problem with the screen being damaged. My second monitor arrived without any problems. As I have read in other reviews the speakers are not exceptional but they do their job well. I think this a perfect size for any college student needing a flat screen monitor, they save a lot of desk top space. I have always been happy with the images on ViewSonic monitors. The colors are brilliant and the refresh rate is quite good.
