Summary: I wanted a good quality monitor for photography and design work, that would "hold" a calibration and "play nice" in a color-managed workflow. I had been looking at this monitor for quite some time, and finally pulled the trigger because it had been replaced by a newer model. The newer model is LED backlit, but at the time I could not find any good reviews by photographers, so I didn't want to risk it.
Summary: This is a wonderful monitor. I use it mostly to view pictures since I am a free lance photographer and the colors are true to the Photoshop® RGB color scheme.I would recommend this monitor, especially for photographic work.
Summary: This is my first IPS monitor. I bought two because I was upgrading my laptop and wanted a dual monitor system with good identical HD monitors. I did a good amount of research and realized that IPS was the way to go if I could afford it. Then I find three definite options for monitors below $300 each and decided to go with this model. They are set up and work wonderful and look great.
Summary: My primary goal was to identify the unit that eases eyestrain and physical tireness when looking at a computer screen 8 hours a day. My son always comments about my blood shot eyes. I remember Viewsonic monitors as making decent CRT monitors in its day. After trying a couple of different LEDs, the Viewsonic came out on top. I tried a couple of 22" and 24" Samsung monitors from Costco that seem to stress bright and washout colors over clarity and color richness.
Summary: I bought a 28" monitor for work, but I wish I'd spent my money on this 23" gem instead. This 23" monitor I use at home is way better. It's easier to look at for long periods of time. It is plenty big enough to multi-task with multiple windows "snapped" to the edges. It rotates easily to portrait view, and occasionally I've viewed .pdf pages or x-rays that way. It runs way cooler than the the 28" monitor at work.
Summary: A warning if you're planning on buying this monitor for it's "portrait" mode or calibration software. The software drivers for those features, that come on the CD, don't work right for everyone. The semi-offical word around the web is that the problem is only with Win7 64-bit, but people with many other configurations are having the same problems.
Summary: We purchased this monitor to replace a 21" CRT about a year and a half ago. My wife uses it as the display for her laptop when she works at home. The display is very easy on the eyes. The finish is matte, not glossy, so glare tends not to be a problem. The monitor comes with a stand which allows you to adjust the height.
Summary: Set up the ViewSonic VP2365WB 23-Inch IPS LCD Monitor and ran a calibration of Color, contrast and brightness and it is virtually spot on right out of the box. Had to make some minor manual adjustments to the brightness and contrast but the color is excellent. The color, contrast and detail are impressive and lives up to the majority of reviews that I have read.
Summary: I bought this monitor because I do a lot of print illustration work. It's impressively precise and the colour seems great compared to my previous monitor. I also like the ability to rotate the monitor into portrait format. This helps a lot with the documents I tend to work on in Photoshop. It also has lots of connections and a USB hub, which is always handy. Recommended.
