Summary: Edit: Read update at the bottom. So first off let me begin with the actual monitor quality: Pros: - Excellent stand (nice and durable though some may find it a tad unwieldy) - Turns left and right, you can also tilt and rotate the panel. - Simple, but effective bezel design - Produces very little heat - Plenty of inputs - Comes with all of the cables you will ever need (including DisplayPort, which is great) - Excellent factory calibration.
Reportedly Works on MacBookPro with Retina Display WITH Dual-Link DVI Cable
22 July 2013
Summary: IMPORTANT: Be sure to read this complete thread, not just my first post. With the help of ViewSonic, the problems I experienced with this monitor can probably be avoided by other MacBook Pro users by purchasing the correct cable (which I didn't do)... I've spent the weekend trying to get this monitor to work with a new 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display. If you are trying to do the same, save your money. It doesn't work!
Summary: "Has two bright spots in the backlight each about the size of a pencil eraser, about four inches diagonally from the lower left corner, and the other about 6 inches straight above that. They're more apparent on light backgrounds, and adjusting the monitor brightness doesn't help.
Pros: Great color, low power consumption, stays cool, stable stand with wide range of adjustment.
Cons: I will quote the other reviewer because mine had the same exact issue. Even the same location. Seems like a manufacturing defect
Summary: Received the monitor and although the picture looked amazing, I did have massive backlight bleed issues and two very bright areas when viewing a page of white (no dead pixels though). Monitor has since gone back to the seller in the hopes that they are able to provide a replacement without these issues, but I'm not hopeful. Will update my review if the replacement is any good.
Summary: Es de lo mejor que ha pasado por mis manos, una calidad impresionante el único pero es que venía con un par de pixeles fundidos y backlight exagerado, una lastima ya que el panel Samsung pls era excelente, como siempre la política de devolución de amazon impecable.
