Excerpt: I had bought my wife a VG720 several years ago. It was a great monitor. Was told this was the replacement and comparable to it. So not. The image isn't as sharp and the speakers are behind the monitor and everything sounds like it's in a tin can. You would think the newer would be better than the older, but not in this case. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Excerpt: This is a nice monitor. For dual setup, I prefer two "square" type displays. I have limited space and this monitor compliments my old one quite nicely. Viewsonic has quality products with a sharp image. I also appreciate the adjustable height. You can't go wrong.
Summary: This would be a perfectly good monitor even without the adjusting neck. The ease of making height adjustments to this monitor makes it great. I have 3 monitors at my workstation and replaced a burned out monitor with this ViewSonic VG932M. It is true what another reviewer said about the monitor not going low. But this was not a problem for me. I have my other monitors on risers. In less than a minute I was able to adjust this one to match the height of the other two.
Summary: I have been a fan of Viewsonic monitors for a long time. They are heavy with multiple adjustments. There is not one dead or stuck pexil on this monitor or on another Viewsonic monitor I own. If I decide to get expensive, I buy NEC. But if you want to buy solid product inexpensively, buy Viewsonic.
Summary: I returned this monitor without hooking it up because it sits way too high off the desk. The minimum distance from the desk to the bottom of the screen is about 6.5", whereas most monitors can be set to sit 4" to 5" off the desk. The larger a monitor's screen, the lower it needs to sit on the desk so that you don't have to look up at it. These 4:3 ratio monitors are taller than most wide-screen monitors, so you need to get it low on the desk.
Summary: In the last fifteen years of computing I have owned many monitors, from KDS to NEC including a Viewsonic, and I have never had to adjust color from one to the next. Currently I use a Samsung and an HP, the HP has digital out the Samsung doesn't. Wanting to upgrade to digital out I looked at the reviews on 4x3 19" monitors and the option to have two computers on one monitor sold me on this Viewsonic.
