Do NOT buy this monitor!

Jacob, Amazon

  • Summary: VERY nice monitor, but holy hell the price is WAY, way, way off. ViewSonics NEW VP930b is the upgrade to this model(huge upgrade btw) and its only $250.00-$300.00. Why in gods name is this 3yr. old monitor still going for so much?!?

It's a (Good) Monitor !

Online Shopper "XxxX", Amazon

  • Summary: I own this monitor and the Widescreen 19' that VS also makes, and they are both very good, reliable monitors. I don't see much difference between the Viewsonic monitors, as they are all of generally very good quality. Compared to the sceptre and HP monitors, I think the V.S. is better. However, it appears the prices have actually gone up on these, so you may do well with another brand.

Absolutely beautiful

  • Summary: (...) It is the best looking, clearest and sharpest flat panel I've seen. My parents do a lot of digital photography and they were amazed at how their photos looked on the new screen. I like this Viewsonic flat panel so much, I'm going to buy one for myself.

Happy with my purchase

David Gustafson "Dave", Amazon
13 June 2005
  • Summary: I wasn't planning to buy a new monitor, but my Vivitron21 CRT finally gave out and I had to replace it. Friends who already have LCD monitors swear by them, so I checked around and eventually settled on the VP191B. I've had it about 2 weeks, and it has done everything well so far. Because I do some editing of home video, I was a little concerned at setup because the monitor pivot software drivers are not Windows certified, at least for XP (the installation instructions...

What a View (Sonic!)

M. Scalise, Amazon
15 April 2005
  • Summary: These are excellent LCD monitors. Excellent picture quality. I purchased them for use in a two monitor set-up for video editing. The "thin edge" design lends itself well to this configuration. You can really get them nice and close together...giving the set-up more of a seamless look. The monitors are fairly light and take up very little space. Coming from a much larger...and heavier CRT monitor this is a welcome change. Set up is quick with the included software.

HOLY COW!

Eduardo Abdullah Nagasaki, Amazon
6 February 2005
  • Summary: (For some reason this review got put under the VP912b model, so I had to copy and paste it back under this model where it belongs.) It took a long time for me to overcome my reluctance about spending over five hundred dollars for a monitor when my whole Dell PC cost about the same, but now that I have it I couldn't be any happier. This Viewsonic is bright and sharp, text very clear, contrast is excellent but gentle on the eyes, photos are vibrant yet detailed.

Buy Quality

"jaybeekay3", Amazon

  • Summary: I work out of my home with my own business so imagine my "surprise" when my former 19 inch flat screen CRT went out on Monday morning. In these last few years I learned the hard way that with computers and add-ons it pays to buy good equipment. I needed a new monitor and FAST! Since I design graphics it had to be good. I ordered this with 24 hour delivery. It came on time and it worked out of the box in less than 5 min. The color is fantastic..

Great look in more ways than one

M. Froom, Amazon
13 January 2004
  • Summary: Boy, does this monitor look good. In comparison to all the other LCDs I've seen, this one ranks at the top. There was no problem with set up or any aspect of operation, all the pixels work (no need for tech support), and the pre-set color temps are probably going to be adequate for all of my needs, so it seems great! The slim bezel, I feel, is a superior look too. I installed it on a win98 machine then upgraded to XP and the cleartype works best.

Very sharp picture, No more eye strain

Matthew, Amazon
9 May 2003
  • Summary: I purchased the Viewsonic 19" ThinEdge as an external monitor for my Toshiba Satellite notebook computer. I do not currently have a digital port on the notebook computer, so I can only provide feedback on the analog video signal. I must say in analog mode that I am very impressed with the vivid colors. The 600:1 contrast ratio really makes a difference as you see contrasts in images that aren't noticable in older monitors. I never expected a monitor to be so great.

L'ecran quasi parfait.

AnzyPom, Ciao
6 July 2006
  • Summary: J'ai acheté cet écran avant tout pour faire de l'infographie, et il faut reconnaitre que le rendu de l'image et surtout des couleurs est magnifique ! Avant je travaillais sur un 19' CRT de grande qualité, et ce fut un grand choc en passant sous le viewsonic de voir que je ne m'étais jamais appercu de certains détails, de certaines nuances de couleurs sur mes réalisations ! Vraiment impressionant, sa qualité sous les jeux memes les plus rapides comme les FPS m'a bluffé .
  • Pros: Couleurs magnifiques, peu de rémanences sur les jeux .
  • Cons: Qualité moyenne pour les films et dvd .
