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.
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.
