Summary: I bought the VG2021m ViewSonic 20" LCD monitor in 2007 for my father who used it almost everyday for at least a few hours. The display was great. The monitor became harder to turn on / stay on once the power button was pressed until it finally died in 2012. It was purchased at Fry's Electronics for $290 so I expected to last longer. My old 15" Samsung LCD from 2002 is still working--ten years later.
Summary: I just replaced my CRT display with the ViewSonic VG2021m 20" LCD, and overall it's fine, but not perfect. I actually debated on giving this three or four stars, but finally settled on three even though providing a good display is the most important thing a monitor does, and this display is beautiful, crisp, and vibrant. The display by itself would get five stars. Having said that, though, there are problems with the monitor.
