Works, but didn't provide power cord

Dale H., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Probably would buy a wide screen next time.
  • Pros: Works just fine. Great price and sound is okay so you don't have to have another set of speakers.
  • Cons: Case wasn't snapped tight around LCD. Supplier only shipped half the power adapter. Fortunately, it took a standard computer power cord otherwise I would have had my new monitor without power.

Keep shoppin'

Kristin H., Newegg
1 February 2007
  • Summary: In general, I'm not too happy with this monitor and will be replacing it very soon. I considered Viewsonic quality to be pretty high across the board before I used this monitor for 4 months. Their CRTs were/are great. I also can't believe Newegg shipped me this in the box the monitor comes in.
  • Pros: Pros: fairly inexpensive, at least at the time I bought it.
  • Cons: Already has one very bright/light blue colored stuck pixel which is highly annoying. Shows a large amount of light around all 4 edges of the screen and leaves black colors as more of a charcoal grey, generally. All colors are brighter than normal, even after some adjustment. Speakers are beyond u...

Not good for text viewing

Chih-Shun D., Newegg
10 November 2006
  • Pros: Bright and vivid color. The price is also very reasonable.
  • Cons: Text display is my biggest complaint on this monitor. Texts with vertical lines like I, T, L, have shadow. I had to go through 3 units with Neweggs and the last unit is only ok. The first 2 units were completely unacceptable, even with DVI cable. This is the 4th LCD monitors I have (a MAG, a DELL...

It's ok

Pang V., Newegg
7 September 2006
  • Summary: Since this is my first LCD, really didn't know what to expect. WoW looks prettier[more colorful] if I can say, from my old CRT.
  • Pros: Light and huge, bigger picture then my old 19" crt. No ghosting, no dead pixles. Came with DVI cable, which is nice.
  • Cons: Watching movies on this is bad, picture looks grainy. Default setting is a tad on the dark side, had to readjust it.

Slow - Not for Gaming

Anonymous, Newegg
12 June 2006
  • Summary: I am a bit more sensitive to refresh rates and response times, but c'mon people?!? So many people say there's no ghosting. Are you looking at the same monitor I am?!?
  • Pros: The VA912b is very crisp in DVI and VGA. Colors are good.
  • Cons: This monitor's response rate is SLOW. Playing Oblivion, BF2 etc. there is a lot of blurring/smearing/ghosting. It got to the point wear I can't play games at all on this thing. I will be buying a VX922(2ms) shortly.

Not that great

Mark C., Newegg
25 March 2006
  • Summary: If you want to settle for lesser color quality and text reading compared to a CRT then go for it.
  • Pros: I am used to it now and for the main reason the space it saves I am happy I bought it.
  • Cons: I have had a CRT for years and this is the first LCD I have had for my comp monitor. Takes alot of adjusting and getting used to. The colors are not as good and text not easy to read compared to a CRT.

Bad Experience that ended well

TN Bear, Amazon
18 October 2005
  • Summary: Received VA912B was bad with text appearing as areas of light and dark contrast in bands down the screen which made text almost unreadable (also dead pixel mid-screen after a few days).
