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. Worked out of the box.
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. Glad to see Viewsonic still making them. Couldn't find one anywhere in a retail store. Completely satisfied with this one. Super value!
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. The ViewSonic VA926 fills the bill nicely. Its native resolution matches an available setting on my old XP system's graphics card--something you always want to check with any older system.
Outstanding monitor at a more than reasonable price.

Summary: This is a high-quality monitor - sharp, clear image and outstanding color, brightness and contrast. I'd really like greater resolution (I knew what it was when I bought it), but I don't think I can ask for more at this price.
