Summary: The ViewSonic 20" monitor provides a large clear picture, especially for visually impaired people for a great price. The stand sits securely in place and offers tilting when necessary. I would recommend this monitor to others.
Summary: This refurbished monitor is nice quality all around, with only some minor cosmetic blemishes, and the price was good. I would have given it five stars, except that it was two weeks late in delivery, with no explanation from either the supplier or Amazon. When I queried Amazon after the expected delivery date was passed by several days, they said they would check on it. No more communication, and the monitor appeared a week or so after that. Disappointing.
Summary: Very good brightness and clarity, but occasionally it gets stuck in a mode with the wrong aspect ratio and the only way to fix is pull up the Intel graphics card settings GUI to reset it -- maybe that's just my graphics card. The other complaint is that with the large speaker boxes at the bottom of the frame, the appearance of the monitor is more clunky than I would like for a flat LCD screen.
Summary: I love this monitor. The screen is rich and vibrant and the response time is great. No dead pixels and I just can't get over how rich the picture is. This is my 1st flat panel at home and I am amazed at how much more room I have on my desk after replacing my standard CRT monitor. There are a couple of small things that I didn't like, this could just as easily been a 5 star rating but since there are a few drawbacks I decided to give it 4.
Great buy, very low maintenance and reasonably priced

Excerpt: COST Between £45-80 depending on where you purchase the item from (if you are buying other electrical goods at the same time then make sure you negotiate a discount). THE LOOK The initial thought I had when checking this screen out in store (its available at most large PC/Electrical retailers by the way) was more along the lines of - my god that's a huge bulky screen - but I promise you, you get over that once you look a little deeper.
Excerpt: The ViewSonic to me isn't like any other flat panel monitor. Most of the flat panel monitors out there look cool, futuristic sleek and very sexy. The ViewSonic however looks big and bulky and it stands out like a sore thumb. It does however grab your attention, so I guess this may be a good thing? Well, it may be a good for your local p.c store. There's no way you could walk through the monitor section of the store and miss this thing.
