Summary: This was just an okay purchase. The monitor works okay, but the Auto Image Adjust and Manual Image Adjust cannot be selected. I’ve installed the latest driver, but still no good. Other than that, it works fine.
Summary: I bought this monitor fom eBay and yes it is used and yes it is a few years old though those idiots saying it doesn't work after a while the screen goes out whatever they must of dropped it and blamed the product for themselves. Don't you listen to them this is one great monitor. I noticed going from a CRT 21" to this one the picture is so much better and crisper and I have never seen color come out so well on a computer screen as this in my home, thank you!
Summary: I prefer dual 4:3 monitors over one 16:9 (or even 2 16:9s). The reason being is that you have to go fairly large with a widescreen to recover vertical real estate. I can get 1024 vertical resolution on a 19" 4:3 monitor when nearly 25" would be required to get the same vertical resolution from a a 16:9 setup. Not to mention that the Viewsonic provides near pro quality color reproduction for a fraction of the cost.

Pros: Good color, very light, takes up very little space on the desk. Image quality is great.
Cons: Customer service is poor. I sent a monitor to them for service 11/20, and have not yet received it back again, it's 12/16. I worked in customer service 30 years, what they portray as customer service is a poor representation. I am very disappointed.
Summary: I've had this ViewSonic model for a little over a year. It has been good to be until now. I have been losing pixels every week for the past month. I'm out 25-30 pixels. Aren't products suppose to last longer then this?

Summary: Renders great images, sharp text, pics. A great monitor and a great price at the time purchased. Unless you are bent on a widescreen, this is a great option and with everything moving more toward widescreen formats, probably a great time to pick up on this one. I have been using mine for over 1 year without so much as a single pixel problem.
Summary: I have had this monitor for over a year now and it has been a great experience. The picture quality is excellent and the monitor looks attractive even when the computer is off (I have it attached to a PC in my living room). Unlike some other reviewers, I have not had any color problems or distortions with the monitor and have used both the VGA and DVI inputs. 2 minor gripes. 1.
