Excellent. Simply Excellent.

  • Summary: I've owned one of these monitors for about 10 years now. I have yet to have the monitor die, or even get 1 bad pixel. After 10 years and going through multiple computers, this monitor is still great in 2014. Excellent pixel density, excellent refresh rate, excellent contrast, excellent brightness... Everything is EXCELLENT. This monitor has been through some drops, hits, and other things, but it's still working great.

  • Summary: My monitor broke and I was reduced to using a 15" dinosaur that I had from an old computer. I am so pleased with the size and clarity of this monitor. I would buy this again.

Old 20" monitor

  • Summary: The quality of the pixels in a 10 year old monitor is amazingly poor. This unit was actually $3200 when new! Screen flickers, has verticle lines in it and the overall brightness is week.

disappointed

  • Summary: The ViewSonic VP201b is a great monitor, when it works. I have had one for several years and decided to get a second one to expand my usable screen real estate. Unfortunately, the monitor is no longer in production and I had to settle for a used/refurbished one. The monitor that I received was in pretty good shape, and ran on first setup. The used monitor suffers from an overly pinkish tint that I cannot remedy, no matter how I change the color settings.

  • Summary: I love this monitor, the picture quality is great the depth and clairity while playing games (seek and find) is outa this world. This was so easy to hook up just plug it in and there you have it just adjust the screen res.. and sit back and be amazed.. Highly recomend this to anyone looking for a new monitor, and for what I do and play the 20.1{" is just right and also watching dvds, perfect....

  • Summary: Check the Reviews on the web and you will see how good this montior is. A long lasting work horse. The speakers sound super smooth to the ears. As well as the colors bright and sharp. The body is strong with it's ease of use. The stand is one that will not let you down or your monitor.

Very Pleased - No problems!

  • Summary: this is my second Viewsonic monitor (but my first LCD) and i have also had Sony and others. I am sold on Viewsonic. Wonderful, clear sharp resolution. I bought this model 5 months ago, and there were no dead pixels, which i was concerned about. But the unit is perfect and im very happy with it. It does have a slightly larger footprint, but only by a few inches. And for a 20 incher, i think it may be appropriate for balancing. I strongly recommend it. wonderful monitor.

Customer last but your money first policy

Tito, Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: My VP201s had flickering pixels and instability only with DVI. The vendor would not allow a return but sent me to Viewsonic -- this was my second day of ownership. Viewsonic help insisted the problem was my computer/graphics card. After testing with different graphics cards, cables, and computers, Viewsonic finally sent one of their replacement "retreads" i.e., scuffed and beat up. I had to pay to ship the first one back.

Great Monitor for the first 6 months

Stephen Ogletree, Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: I've just read all the reviews and want to confirm what a couple of others have mentioned. This is a great LCD screen. The catches are that you have to tolerate a dead pixel or two and handle do a manufacturer replacement every 6 months when it dies. I've had 2 VP201S die on me now and I don't think I'll be buying Viewsonic again anytime soon. The first 2 LCDs each when out after about 6-7 months of usage.

Impressive monitor, worth the money

Aaron Welch, Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: I am a developer and spend 50+ hours a week in front of my computer, so a good monitor is required. I moved across country and decided not to haul my old 21" crt with me, and just buy a new monitor once I arrived. I spent several days online and in the store comparing specs, prices, and doing store comparisons. I was hesitant to spend so much on a monitor at first, but after so much comparison I decided it was worth it, and I'm glad I did.
