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. The other specifications are what I expected and hoped for (unlike the monitor from another manufacturer I had to return for a heavy green cast). Colors are true. Resolution is fine and crisp. Blacks and grays and whites are true.
Summary: This is an amazing clear, precise monitor that I really enjoy. I have always liked the Viewsonic product line and am pretty picky about certain products one of which being the monitor. Since the monitor is one of the things that can really impact the experience you have working with your computer finding the correct one is important. Movies and games look amazing and I like that there are no speakers or extra clutter on the sides of the monitor.
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.
