Summary: Very disappointed in this monitor. I have had View Sonic's in the past and found them to be a reliable monitor. However,this one was not. Straight out of the box the colors were extremely washed out. After a couple of days the colors went absolutely nuts: Skies were green, browns were pink, etc. It was near impossible to read anything on the monitor as the blacks were mostly missing. I tried calibrating the monitor, but that did not help.
Summary: I bought this as a birthday gift for my girlfriend and she really likes it. I like the price, she likes the price of free and the monitor. She uses it for her home business and is on it a lot. I like that it is NOT a super high res monitor, so text is large and crisp and images are just fine.. One issue I have with high res monitors is that many programs do not scale up the size of menus making them very hard to read. That is not a problem with this monitor.
Excerpt: I find the VG2439m LED 24, highly responsive. I use it along with 4 other View Sonic monitors for high speed stock trading. It can display fast moving charts with no trailing imaging, has low power consumption and is easy on the eyes with a anti-glare screen
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: I like it, because It's good size and adjustive in different directions. Very good for graphic-designers or web-developers. Good quality. I totally recommend to order only a NEW item, because If you order not new, then internet-store may send you different model (not what you ordered).
Summary: The entire screen turned bright green and stayed that way, despite trying it on different computers, with different cables, etc. It has been returned to the manufacturer for repair, but that takes approximately 2 weeks. Good on them for repairing it, I guess, but I would have expected it to last longer than it has.
