I would buy it again under the same circumstances.
9 February 2012
Summary: Bought used and have been impressed with the picture, sound, size, and functionality, I think it has had quite a lot of use in an office based on seller's notes, but it still has performed seamlessly for me. The only thing about this used unit that disappoints me is that it will not adjust to be brighter, though its max brightness is just right at present.
Summary: I am using this monitor almost everyday and I love its sharp clear picture. I had been using a CRT monitor for years and didn't realize the difference in clarity of a LCD. It is especially noticeable on DVDs. And this monitor has built in speakers that puts the sound right at the screen. I liked it so much that I bought a 2nd 20" LCD from the same seller for my other computer. The CRT is going in the shed (for backup).
Summary: This is a real nice monitor,but I bought 2 more to fix mine and the all had the same problem.The vidieo board goes out and viewsonic no longer has them.So you end up with a nice piece of crap.Buyers beware!! Make sure the board will display before you buy.
Summary: My old 15 inch Viewsonic is still working after, oh, 6 years, so I should be very loyal to them. I got my 17 inch VG700 used on eBay and it is just great in every way, bright, crisp and clear. w/ built in speakers that I have not used. ~~~ It is no longer made but a great value on the used market. Get one!
Summary: i bought the veiw sonic monitor after i searched the web in the past i have had crt monitors and the flat panel monitors are higher in resolution and color and take up less space in my case veiw sonic has a good handle on the flat panel market i would buy another great job veiw sonic
