Summary: After 10 years or so, my old ViewSonic finally gave up. With that kind of reliability, I replaced to old one with as near the same as I could find. My new ViewSonic moniotor works great. The one I bought is actually not new, but a refurbished one. Works well, and I am very pleased.
Summary: These monitors did exactly what I wanted. I wanted a full screen for photoimage work and software creation and things like that. It is easy to read. The other one I used for an arcade which it works great for. Most computers were written having this ratio of monitor in mind. It came fine.
Summary: Ordered this to replace an older HP monitor of same size. Worked perfectly right out of the box. Color and text clarity are excellent. Convenient adjusting buttons on front of case. Tried a new 20" widescreen, but didn't like the shorter view at all. Much prefer the 4:3 aspect ratio.
Summary: Sometimes you really do want an old-fashion 4:3 aspect monitor instead of a widescreen. I do a lot of text editing. Having additional vertical headroom is a lot more important to me than extended width, owing to the fact that I want to see how my words will look on a full printed page.
Summary: I've only had this monitor running for a couple days, but so far I'm extremely pleased with it. I just purchased a new PC with WIN 7 on it. I plugged this monitor in (cable included in purchase) and away I went. Don't see the need to even install the software that accompanies the monitor.
Summary: I bought this for my wife to use in doing my sons books on Quick Books. (The former 4x5 aspect 15 inch was too small to work on and she needed the larger 4x5 aspect) She is in Hog Heaven! It is crisp sharp bright and fast.
Summary: Dead pixel smack dab in the middle of the screen. Hard to imagine how it got by quality control. Will be returning this. --Update-- Return with Amazon was easy as always. Second monitor shipped had no dead pixels and no issues.
