Summary: My monitor came without any cables of any kind: no power cable and no video cable. I called ViewSonic and spoke to someone who said it happens "a lot"; she took my e-mail address and said they'd send me replacement cables, but that should never have happened in the first place. (I own the necessary cables and was able to get the monitor working.) Input is VGA only. That's really not very impressive. Most LCD monitors in this day and age allow for digital input.
Summary: This is a low end model. If you are buying your first LCD and arent a heavy graphics user, this may work for you. But moving up from a Viewsonic 17" model, I am very disappointed in the sharpness, brightness, and color rendering on this "VGA Only" display. I should have bought the Viewsonic VA912B with DVI, its even listed for $30 less than this model. Ugh!
