good monitor

Luke Clemens, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: I've owned this monitor for about 8+ years now and today it finally died (backlight went out). 8+ Years is pretty good for an lcd with a ccfl backlight, unlike gateway/acer monitors which fail after a year. I would definitely buy another Viewsonic again. Good picture, and very solid.

ViewSonic VP171b 17" LCD TFT Monitor

ceeannlynn, Ebay
14 November 2010
  • Summary: This monitor will function well in games and productivity. There is a slight LCD lag in games but barely noticeable with 2010 Starcraft 2. It has 1 digital input and 2 analog inputs. One can switch between them with a switch on the monitor.

A++++ ViewSonic VP171b (Black) 17 inch LCD Monitor

pcrazzcomputersllc, Ebay

  • Summary: This is an amazing screen. There is nothing I don't like about it. It features a great resolution and refresh rate. The thing also has 2 VGA and 1 DVI port. What more could you ask for? I decided to buy it since I have 5 others just like this that I use in the office.

Poor quality control

jaydro, Amazon

  • Summary: It's probably a little late to say this now, but I found this, which was my first LCD monitor, to be very disappointing. At first I loved it, it was a state-of-the-art 17" LCD when I got it new, no dead pixels, just great. But after six months it started having random fritzing-out issues.

Please Make The Beeping Stop!

  • Summary: Well, I purchased this monitor based on rave reviews for gaming purposes. Truly the monitor has been great with one exception: The bloody thing beeps whenever it on standby or turned off but plugged into an outlet.

Love it want to buy a second one.

J. Casper, Amazon
17 July 2004
  • Summary: Picture is very nice, clear, smooth, and bright. I certainly don't miss my old CRT. The stand it comes with is the best I've come across yet. It adjusts for hight, pan (left/right), and tilt(forward/back) without much effort and nothing to tighten/loosen to get it to stay put.

5 months and it breaks..

  • Summary: I loved this monitor, it had beautiful color and resolution every thing that I need for working on video editing. That is until it just went black in the middle of my project due in three days! How could something held in such high respect be so lacking of quality.

Outstanding LCD

Amazon
16 April 2004
  • Summary: After turning on this LCD, all I can say is wow. It is absolutely stunning. One red pixel near the lateral edge. The 16ms refresh time, pivot function, and simply outstanding picture makes this well worth the money.

Beautiful.

  • Summary: I've never used such a crystal clear, clean screen. It makes working almost a joy. And the pivot function is life-changing-- like another reviewer wrote, in all my years of word processing I've never before seen an entire page on one screen.

Horrid Warranty service...BEWARE

RPC, Amazon
30 March 2004
  • Summary: Beware of Viewsonic Customer Service. I sent a LCD in for warranty repair, so far it's been 7 weeks with no repair/replacement in sight. Check out Planar LCD's if warranty service is important to you
