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: 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: 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: 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.
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: I am a student who spends a lot of time using a computer for work. I also enjoy games with intense 3D graphics. I needed a monitor which gave me accurate colour, good quality contrast and great sharpness.
Excerpt: Wem 700 Euro und mehr nicht zu schade für einen Monitor sind und wer beispielsweise als Gamer wie ich, Wert auf erstklassige Leistungswerte legt, der kommt nicht am ViewSonic VP2030b vorbei! Ich habe mir den Monitor nun gekauft und benutze ihn seit einem Monat.
Pros: Erstklassige Verarbeitung, perfektes Bild
Cons: bei Dunkelheit leicht sichbare Beleuchtung in den Ecken
