Summary: We own two of these. My husband bought one for me when he purchased one for himself. My stepson just wanted to "play" with it for a while to see the difference between the graphics on his monitor and this one. Well, I now have his old monitor and he has this one.
Summary: I have been using this screen for some time now. I calibrate it with a sypder pro 2 and it shows good detail. I don't do detailed color corrections (I have my lab do those) so for my purposes it works great. It gives me good detail,good blacks and whites, with sharp color.
Summary: Monitor has a good sharp, crisp picture. That is where I end with the positive comments. The monitor is made to clearly turn up on edge as it has a pivot stand. My intentions were to use it vertically for word processing. But the viewing angle from side to side in the vertical position is horrible.
Summary: Between the monitor and the tech support I will never buy another ViewSonic. The top of the screen is dark. The bottom is washed out. The color in between is nowhere near accurate. They have no Mac compatible drivers.
Summary: This monitor has excellent color resolution, brightness, consistency across the entire screen and refresh rates. Very good for doing video and photo work/ upper end graphics. It also has a built in USB hub for 4 devices.
Summary: The brightness at the top of the panel was much darker than the lower part of the panel. Kind of like a gradient from top to bottom. ViewSonic replaced it with another, but it suffered the same problem. I returned both monitors.
Summary: I was interested in getting a monitor that had accurate color for photography. I am totally pleased and I love the size. I had a 17" before and this one seems so large. My pictures look great and they print out the same color. What else could I ask for. Very simple to set up.
