My favorite of all our monitors.

  • 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. It is everything that the first two reviewers said it is (Nor Cal and North Dakota). You can work for long hours on it because it is easy on the eyes.

clear and good color

  • 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. It has been a good choice for me.

Screen has some view angle issues

top-tool-pro, Ebay
24 January 2011
  • 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. To the side that would be the bottom of the screen in the horizontal position is only about 10 degree off center and then it darkens significantly.

Grey Streak Against White on Yours?

Graphics Hobbiest, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: A bit pricey, but an OK monitor for enthusiast/ hobby graphics once the color is calibrated at slower (non-accelerated) refresh rate to tone down the over-saturated reds, blues, and purples. The Viewsonic color calibration driver is useless, and their software blanks the screen during boot (really slow "loading from memory" message). Better to stick with graphics card driver (I have a quick Nvidia with lotsa RAM) and a decent calibration software package.

In a word - JUNK!

L. Stephens, Amazon
15 February 2009
  • 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. And, tech support just wants to get off the phone and send you on a wild goose chase. Get new drivers for your video card. Can you try a different video card? Try using a different cable. Switch it to a different computer.

Not for professionals

B. J "photo crazy", Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: I am a professional photographer and use 3 Viewsonic LCD monitors for my office and production. Recently I added a computer to my setup and needed a more color and luminence accurate monitor. Being a Viewsonic fan and very satisfied with my previous VP930b LCD monitor I picked VP2250 to add to new computer. I was looking for a monitor with better color reproduction and as VP2250 can produce Adobe colors I bought it. It was a mistake.

Very good monitor for video and photo editing

Yoda, Amazon
20 November 2008
  • 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. The one major weakness (and why it gets 4 instead of 5 stars) is its lack of support for HDMI, a format which will probably be more widely adapted in upper end video and photo work).

Poor brightness consistency across LCD panel

srq49, Amazon
14 November 2008
  • 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.

ViewSonic VP2250wb monitor

Janet L. Ponder, Amazon
6 October 2008
  • 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. I haven't used all the fancy stuff like TV & all but I hope to. I do recommend it for photography........
