Excerpt: Great color, easy to calibrate. Software could be improved. It takes long time to load during which your screen in Windows 7 will be white. No progress is indicated. Be patient and you will be rewarded with a proper installation.
Summary: I like the monitors and I certainly liked the price. The only reason I can't give them 5 stars is that I bought two and use them side by side for PhotoShop and LightRoom work. While they both provide a more-than-acceptable workspace, they don't match. No matter how often I calibrate them, there is always a very apparent difference in their rendition of the same image.
Excerpt: Well worth the money. It's a cost effective way to get into the IPS arena. Good size, nice controls.My only complaint is I purchased 2 of these and the out of the box color was so different I feared that one would be going back.I set all the settings per Viewsonic's recommendations as a calibration staring point on both displays. One looked pretty decent the other was extremely green.I've calibrated by eye at this point and both look good.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: Nice monitor. Accurate color. Usable stand is easy to adjust. The onboard USB hub is handy. I'm not impressed with the tiny buttons and the on screen menu system, but overall a great monitor for a fair price.
Summary: Fast, and i mean fast shipping from Amazon. Thanks! Set up was easy with no bad pixels found. I changed the setting under the settings button, color adjustment to sRBG. This negates having to adjust the brightness and contrast down, giving accurate colors (in my opinion). My only complaint is with the height adjustment. The lowest it seems to go is about five inches measured from the desktop to the bottom of the monitor.
Summary: I bought this to complement my discontinued VP2365wb, which is essentially the same monitor with a CCFL backlight. The stand, interface, and housing are all identical as far as I can tell, which is great, because it's rock-solid and flexibly adjustable. The pictures appear to be pretty close, although the LED monitor has slightly brighter whites. I've wanted a two or three monitor setup at home for a while. (I am spoiled with three at my work desktop!
Pros: Excellent color, viewing angle Superb stand and flexibility. Height adjustment range is perfect to fit my desktop speakers under, and the monitors are stable. Matte finish for those who rightly despise glossy abominations. LED backlight saves power. Newegg was excellent in delivery and price, per usual. No speakers is a plus for a multi-monitor setup. I'm not interested in the additional cost of sub-par speakers that make for a wider bezel.
Great monitor! - Needs PerfectSuite packaged with it.

Summary: I got this monitor several weeks ago to replace a VP930b that finally started getting flaky after 5 years of 15 hour days 7 days/week. Those of you who also do graphics and photography know how bad LCD screens are at following a standard Gamma response curve. The fact is, they just don't. ViewSonic has always come closest to the standard Gamma curve, at all voltages, for each Red, Green and Blue. However, none come close to the smooth response of CRT Phosphors.
Summary: Gave it 4 stars because of the price and the USB hub, there's are monitors just as good as this for $25-$30 less. Screen looks amazing, wonderful color reproduction. The bezel is nice, not glossy, very professional looking. The buttons feel of a higher quality than older Viewsonic buttons. The buttons are also small, nice looking, and feel solid. The blue power indicator has a nice glow and is not overly bright.
Excerpt: This monitor was purchased to replace an aging Trinitron CRT. If a full gamut monitor and a calibrated system is not required, this is a very cost effective replacement. The primary concern was the ability to adjust display brightness. Out of the box with the following settings: Contrast 70%, Brightness 88%, Dynamic contrast off, Color Adj.
Excerpt: I use this for professional photo editing. I can have Lightroom & Photoshop up at the same time on either side of the screen without having to click around to different programs. I use it with a monitor calibration system, so the factory defaults are irrevalent to me. (I think, as with any other monitor, that some will find it very bright & blueish out of the box, but if you calibrate it with something like ColorMunki you don't have to even mess with it.
