Died right after warranty expired

Anonymous, Newegg
15 June 2010
  • Summary: After this monitor dying, and reading of all the complaints against the Viewsonic warranty, I will not be buying another Viewsonic.
  • Pros: No dead pixels, I had upgraded to this monitor from a 19in CRT so I was satisfied with it's performance until it died
  • Cons: Died right after warranty expired. Screen is black, blue LED stays solid.

Terrible Support

Kyung B., Newegg
9 February 2009
  • Summary: I finally got my monitor back not in my original box I sent but in some RMA box with no power cord or dvi cables. It was also missing the back plate of my monitor. So I emailed them supposedly they will send me the power cables and dvi cables but no back plate of my monitor.
  • Pros: My viewsonic monitor has been acting up for more than 6 months and I get wavy lines if I turn the brighness level down and after this problem my brightness level was also fading. So I sent my monitor for repair and I include everything that was included in the retail box on end of December and th...

Horrible Customer Service

Ms. T., Newegg
16 December 2008
  • Summary: I highly doubt this to average life of a Viewsonic monitor, but this does show that if something goes wrong with your monitor. You can count on them doing the absolute bare minimum required by law to fix the problem.
  • Pros: Great quality and resolution for the ten months it worked.
  • Cons: Terrible ViewSonic Customer Service. After ten months the monitor went out randomly. I proceeded to return the monitor via the limited 3 year warrenty. If the monitor had been in stock, I would of gotten a new one but since it wasn't, I was told it would be repaired and sent back to me after at m...

Monitor Good; Warranty Service Terrible

James B., Newegg
14 November 2008
  • Summary: This was my second Viewsonic monitor, the first being a 19" short depth CRT that lasted for over 8 years. Next time, I'll probably get a monitor from Dell, and it definitely won't be a Viewsonic.
  • Pros: Monitor works well and has a good warranty period.
  • Cons: Backlighting isn't great. I had the monitor for 2 years with no problems. Then the monitor failed to display an image. I was happy to find that it was still under warranty so I got an RMA and sent it in. Took over a month to get it back. 2 weeks passed and the monitor failed in the same way again...

digital input is junk

Shawn T., Newegg
18 April 2008
  • Summary: I wasn't even mad about the first one, I know it can happen. But now to have another one with a very similar failure? I've lost faith in viewsonic. At least the analog input still works so I can use it, but very dissappointed.
  • Pros: Was a decent monitor, no complaints on picture, no dead pixels (out of 2 monitors).
  • Cons: Had to rma my first one of these as the digital input died after a cpl weeks.... Now the 2nd monitors digital input has died after about a month...

Defective Product

Kevin H., Newegg
16 January 2008
  • Summary: Check the BBB for a company report of Viewsonic before purchasing any of their products. I did not and that was my mistake.
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Monitor lost video signal within 1 month of purchase. Return to Viewsonic on 12/3/07 after receiving authorization. As of 01/16/08 still no idea when monitor will be repaired after numerous phone calls and registered letter.
