Summary: I have owned one for about 5 years and liked it for its clarity. I take a lot of digital pictures and this is very good monitor for photography. I redesigned my computer station and decided to use 2 monitors. That is why I bought this one and they are perfect matches. My older one is a little cooler in its color which could be age. I am very pleased with the quality of this monitor.
Summary: This monitor is very good. Read a lot of online reviews, text blur can be improved by adjusted the contrast/brightness below 50% plus the "grey" scale in video card program; set it to 70Hz refresh rate (beware of higher rate). Response time is good enough to watch movies. You may probably get it below $200 range. Good job, Viewsonic.
Summary: I've been running this monitor for about 3 months, replacing an old 21 inch CRT. As a graphic artist/ web designer I need to have a decent monitor for color and screen size. At the momment I can't afford the top of the line models, but from reviews and research (don't just go off of Amazon reviews), I ended up with this monitor. I am happy with the quality for the price.
Summary: This review is about Viewsonic's customer service and is not about the quality of this monitor. The VP920b was replaced by the VP930b and that monitor is great when it works, but 3 out of the 4 monitors I had did not work. Worst of all is their customer service. The first monitor I returned had a bad DVI port. Weeks after I sent it in, they returned the same monitor and nothing had been repaired.
Summary: This monitor was my worst nightmare. The colors were not consistent (darker in the top left, lighter in bottom right corners). The text was mushy, full of artifacts and difficult to read. The monitor was still to bright, even with the brightness turned down all the way. I used the monitor for about 3 days and my foveas are still throbbing. After calibrating several times I gave up and returned the monitor.
Summary: Being a programmer/web designer, I needed monitors that were big enough, had great ratios, and were LCD - This monitor is the best. And it's by luck that I found it for the price on Amazon - which is half the price of what ViewSonic sells these for, so it's an absolute steal. In regards to Steve Bailey, the monitor does wobble on its base as you type if your keyboard is on the desk and not on a mounted retractable keyboard/mouse drawer.
Summary: I've had this monitor for about a year now, and have found the dot pitch to be so large that I use it only for computing tasks when next to a Viewsonic VG191b. It is my third viewsonic LCD. Currently it is the only one alive. My local video tech says they are not worth repairing. Now that's sustainable! <guffaw> After much searching, I found that Gateway makes some nice monitors and good prices with lots of inputs. They will also guarantee NO dead pixels! Woohoo!
Summary: I bought this VP920b a week ago. It is an awesome monitor. Look at the features it offers: 1. Height adjustment. Every LCD monitor should have one. There is no excuse for manufacturer not to include this feature. 2. Portait/Landscape pivot. Nice feature but not a must. 3. Thin edge. It is designed to put two or more monitors together into one big screen. 4. Integrated speaker. Make sure you turn the volume setting in the monitor to max and use your computer to adjust.
Summary: If you just bought this, or a similar model, and you see my 4 out of 5 stars, don't panic or feel buyer's remorse. It's a great replacement for whatever monitor you moved up from. First, the reasons for the 4 stars: - The built-in speaker is pretty much useless, though it was a kind, well-meant gesture to try to give me back some desk space :) There's no Bass at all, and the max volume is still not loud enough to hear some audio formats that are normally of lower volume.
