Summary: While connecting my windows laptop gives me a reasonable image quality and a good value for the price, the monitor driver for my Macbook 13 totally sucks: type fonts show blurred and hard to read. A couple of hours working on my gmail gave me a headache. I contacted both Apple and Viewsonic, and I'll I got is one blaming the other and vice-versa. If you have a Macbook and are capable of walking without glasses, you'll hate this.
Edges glow from backlight. Limited vertical viewing angle.

Summary: Surprised how good this screen is for the price. If would be five stars if the edge glow wasn't so strong. When watching movies with the lights out the top and bottom edges of the screen glow from the backlight. If you mount the screen directly at eye level then you have to tilt it down a little bit. This is because it has a very limited vertical viewing angle and they assume you will use the included stand which would position the screen a below eye level.
Summary: I had twin ViewSonic 22" monitors that were upgraded to these 27" ViewSonics. I like the extra viewing space, the slightly larger text, and the higher resolution. A USB AB cable (not furnished) is required to activate the 4 USB ports on the monitor, but once installed there are 2 ports on the left side (easily accessed and very handy) and 2 on the back with the other connectors (which is puzzling since they can't be accessed without walking around to the back of the...
Summary: It was a surprise when I got it. It was better than what I expected. It is a great monitor. Update! July 31st 2013 I had a problem with the Monitor. It developed what appeared to be a small rectangle in the lower left center of the screen. It was not big but it was there. You could see it when the screen was white. This area was brighter than the rest of the screen. I contacted AMAZON Customer service and they did a great job of resolving this.
Summary: I have been waiting about a month now for a response from viewsonic. I bought this monitor after a house fire I was going to hook it up with display port so I bought a mini display port adapter not noticing that it was standard so I lived with dvi till now. I bought a mini to standard display port adapter plugged it in flawless. About an hour later I hear a pop like something blew and start thinking I would have to replace it.
Excellent - awesome features, huge screen & great picture

Summary: I choose this monitor (for use with my MacBook Pro - adapter cable not included) based on reviews & features. It makes working on my laptop much more enjoyable and manageable - especially when I need to use multiple applications at once, since now they all fit on the screen at once as opposed to toggling back and forth constantly. I have it plugged into my PC as well and with the push of a button on the bezel, I can switch back & forth between computers.
Summary: Viewsonic is known for making superior monitors. However, they claimed this product had a 170º viewing angle. I guess you could claim it does. But as soon as you're looking at it from a different angle than straight on, certain parts of the monitor get brighter or darker depending if you went left, right, up or down. Very disappointing. Can't afford an apple monitor, but I can now see why the price point is where it is. Beautiful monitor, but disappointing.
