Summary: Watch out on this one. I checked back with Amazon and I had this product exactly 355 days. And without any warning the monitor just died. The screen goes black and it never does anything. I can get the View Sonic name to appear at start up and then its gone and the screen is black. No icons, no screen picture, nothing. I enjoyed the monitor when it worked but not so much now. You'd think for the money you could at least get 2 years out of it. And it has a loud clank now.
Viewsonic VP2365WB doesn't have working driver for Win 7 64-bit

Summary: I purchased this to edit photos, but I cannot get a driver for Windows 7 64-bit to work. I have been trying all day and their tech support is useless. The problem is that the resolution for this is supposed to be 1920x1080, but the highest you can go on this is 1600x1200, which is a different aspect ratio and caused my pictures to by elongated sideways. Are there any users who use Windows 7 64-bit who have been successful in getting the drivers to load?
Summary: Simply put, if it were a "pro" monitor, it would be 16:10 aspect ratio, not HDTV ratio of 16:9. You lose 120 pixels in height. Negative Ghost Rider. If you have no idea what a 16:10 compared to a 16:9 is, you don't need a "pro" monitor and don't care about this misleading marketing. So before you click that you didn't find this review helpful, ask yourself the question--Do I even know what he is talking about?
Summary: Due to feedback on my original review, I've decided that some of the comments were right, and I should not mark down a product to one start based on my problems below. However, since this monitor has an almost 5 star average, my one star won't matter, and serves to give useful information to a potential buyer. That, and Amazon gives us no way to make comments like these that either warn or inform buyers, so we have to do it here. My apologizes for that.
Don't buy this if you're looking for visual quality!!

Summary: I bought this monitor after reading numerous glowing reviews from photography-oriented heavy users- what were they smoking?? When I got this monitor, I tried to set it up for about an hour- focusing on the brightness and contrast settings. It was just too harshly bright, unless the brightness and contrast settings were set WAY down. I did all this adjustment by reviewing a folder of outdoors photographs. So was it just my eyes?
Summary: I don't know if this monitor was incompatible with my display adapter, which is an Nvidia GeForce 9800M GTS, but i could not get it to display at the native resolution of 1920x1080. In fact, when i pressed the information button on the on screen display, it reported that the resolution was set to 1400x1050. As a result, the image was fuzzy and most annoying of all, the display image was larger than the actual physical display area, i.e.
