Summary: This is not the first Viewsonic monitor I have owned, but it certainly confirms to me the reliability and consistency of Viewsonic products. My sole concern before buying was how stable the base was. It is.
Summary: Great value for a 24" monitor that I use for general computing needs and the occassional movie/video editing, etc. The sound is great for something that is integrated. My only negative comment is the fact that the box was in terrible condition but the monitor appeared to be absolutely new.
