Summary: Purchased original in early April 2006, second replacement is enroute. Two DVI-Digital failures. Works D-SUB (Analog). I purchased for digital performance. After several weeks of use I could smell hot electronics running a sim. Shortly after - DVI-D failed.
Summary: This monitor is absolutely great. There are a couple of minor issues I encountered, but for its quality and price this is a good buy. Bad: 1.) 1 dead pixel for mine, although there isn't much to be done about that except lower yields and raise prices.
Summary: We have about 200 of these monitors and the failure rate is about 50-60%. It's often difficult to gauge the reliability if you order only one or two because bad monitors are probably chalked up as a fluke and quickly replaced by the company.
Summary: Do not buy this monitor. I bought about 12 for our company and the failure rate is about 60% now. Of course just after the 3 year warranty, they started failing. They are in a contolled environment were other monitors also exist with no trouble.
Summary: Pros: 1) VERY sensitive to shades - thanks to MVA - I can see tone change that I unable to notice on common laptop; it provides bright, sharp and uniform picture; 2) _NOT_ shiny surface, thanks God, such a rare feature today!
Summary: This is a great monitor. It came with a fantastic, sturdy stand (even if it is a little deep) which allows you to quickly change the height, angle, and even pivot from landscape to portrait mode. Also includes every kind of cable you might use to connect it to your PC.
Summary: The monitor was fine for a few years. I rebooted my computer one day and the monitor never came back on. It appears to have had an internal failure. I have had an LCD Samsung for over six years and it is still going strong. I will avoid ViewSonic from now on.
Excellent monitor, but with some unexpected flaws.

Summary: I bought this monitor 2 months ago (2-Jun-2006) and here is my experience so far: Pros: * Excellent reactivity. Absolutely no problems with even the "fast" games such as Call of Duty 2, Need for Speed Underground 2, Far Cry...
Summary: Let me start off by addressing D. Morris' review "Let Down". It sounds to me that you just got a bad product. It looks like a refurbish or a reboxed return. I've ordered from Tiger Direct in the past and they do not have the greatest service, and I have heard similar complaints.
Summary: Have only owned this monitor for a week and am extremely impressed with it. Setup is easy and straightforward and software is a breeze. Unable to find any cons for this monitor and it far exceeds my expectations.
