Pros: Have had VP2130b for several years. 4 of them. Never a problem with DVI, heat, etc. Maybe I'm lucky? I run 4 computers, hate having different monitory types. Now ready to by 2 more, maybe 4. Dual monitor mode is great with these, ESPECIALLY in vertical/portrait mode.
Cons: The Stand and USB ports are pathetic, I give you that. But, now with redesign of the home office, I'm going to "build" or buy some monitor stands connected to the VESA(?) holes for dual monitors, rotating the screens when needed, and swivel.
Summary: This was sent to me as a replacement for my horrible VP201b. Viewsonic support is just as bad as everyone says, possibly worse. I sent my VP201b in twice due to it just "blanking out" randomly. They actually lost my monitor and sent me another "refurbished" unit with the exact same problem!
Pros: Awesome picture. Mine has no dead or stuck pixels. I tried it last night with XPlane 8.40, WOW! With XPlane set at 1600 x 1200 resolution the detail is amazing, bright and clear.
Cons: Mine takes some coaxing to get it going. When I first boot my computer the display comes up only around 50% of the time. A hardware reset prior to Windows booting usually gets it done, sometimes requires 2 to 3 tries. I'm using an nVidia GeForce 8800GTS card + DVI-D cable at native resolution.
Summary: overall, great screen. highly recommended, if you can shell out the dough.
Pros: 21.3"!! 8ms!! great contrast!! and brightness!! all delivered at a great price. no dead pixels, highly adjustable stand, intuitive menus, dos not require supplied drivers (on WinXP64), no glare, usb hub.
Cons: now is that really 8ms refresh rate? i may be talking out of my usb port, but i swear i tell a ghost when i see one. i don't have any tech background to back it up, but on entirely black screen, bright-white objects leave a slight, barely-noticable trace. not a problem for me, but that is about t...
