Excerpt: This is a replacement for a VP2365-LCD that died. It is paired with a VP2765-LED, and is used mainly to keep source material, control palettes, and other clutter from obscuring layouts and to view events output in Final Cut Pro X.The LED backlighting means that this monitor runs much cooler than its predecessor and should last longer and without color shifts associated with fluorescent backlighting as it ages.The only issue I have with the 2365 is that I cannot get its...
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.
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: 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.
Summary: A fair priced, big IPS with some extras like an USB hub thrown for good measure. It looks spartan, but the design is very usable, the base has tilt/height adjustment, the colors are easily calibrated. If anything, the USB ports are located in a pretty inaccesible location, which limits their usefulness. I also don't like the lack of HDMI but it's not a deal breaker to me, as I my PC can output DVI. Other than that, you cannot lose with this monitor.
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.
Summary: I am comparing the VP2365-LED side by side with a LG Flatron E2260, which is a consumer grade 21.5" LED monitor at about half the cost. + Viewsonic has superior colors. More vibrant and consistent across the whole display. Even grays look subtle and beautiful on the Viewsonic. The colors seems to have a depth and solidness that the LG doesn't have. + Viewsonic has better anti-glare coating. It doesn't look dirty or sparkly like the LG's coating looks on solid white.
Summary: I picked up one of these about a week ago, after obsessing over reviews of various models. Unfortunately, I'm seeing some backlight bleed on this monitor--too much, considering the price. When I compare a black image against the bezel it looks more like a medium-dark grey. I've read that this is a common problem with IPS monitors but one review said this one was better than average...not my experience.
