Summary: My wife bought it for me for my birthday. At first I wasn't too thrilled because I liked my old reliable CRT monitor. But since it was a gift (and to save faith and keep the peace), I reluctantly hooked it up. For about a month, I left the clear plastic film over the screen because I have a history of sometimes touching it for one reason or another. The film is very transparent and not really even noticeable.
Summary: Very happy with this monitor! Crisp with nice color. The stand is probably the best I've seen on a monitor since the days of the old CRT monitors (which were an entirely different animal, of course). The pivot feature is great for word processing and, surprisingly, also nice for a great many websites. I'd only note two minor "cons": 1) The sound from the built in speakers is only "fair".
Summary: This monitor is everything that is described .... and more. It's a perfect size to watch TV shows and sports games, and the HD is great. I highly recommend this monitor. I was skeptical, since I had never heard of this brand, but after checking big box stores for other brands, I decided to take a chance... glad that I did.
no HDMI and quit working after 13 months... otherwise good

Summary: Good monitor, but quit working after 13 months. Great warranty... I called customer service and spoke to english speaking person who was very helpful in getting a replacement pretty quick. Had to pay $25 to ship the old one in, but the replacement was free. No HDMI - this sucks, but I should have checked for that fact before ordering so this is one me. Wish they invested in HDMI instead of the worthless, horrible, low quality built in speaker.
Summary: I chose this unit based on multiple favorable reviews, size, and the units ergonomic flexibility. Set up was relatively simple, although directions were non existent. I used the calibration utility on my Macbook Pro. I got some help from someone who had more experience with these calibrations than I had. The monitor is excellent. Resolution is great. It fits well on my desk. So, far, this is a great pick.
Summary: I bought this to go with my Mac Pro computer. I wasn't going to pay Apple® $1,000 for their monitor. I didn't have the room for the Apple® monitor anyway. This monitor has a 5 ms Response Time compared to the Apple® Thunderbolt 27" display at 12 ms. This monitor also moves up and down, swivels and tilts. It is a 1080p Full HD and the 1080 HD videos look GREAT on this display.
Summary: The View Sonic monitor works perfect with my mini-mac. I couldn't justify shelling out a $1000 for a larger monitor from the Apple store, this one is perfect and the price was great! The seller sent it quickly and it came with all the cables necessary. Computer Geeks Rock!
Summary: I have owned ViewSonic for many years & NEVER a problem. Perfect all around. My next monitor will be a ViewSonic. The monitors never go out as I just want to update my monitor size. I have owned my current 19" monitor for about 6 years.
