Summary: I have a old CRT ViewSonic G773 from 10 years ago and it still works like a champ. I bought this ViewSonic VP930b because I expected the same thing. Within 3 months I already had a random weird color shift where certain shades of gray (like the ones found on many desktop menus) would actual ANIMATE and flicker around. Quite annoying. At the time I thought it was my video card until I got a new computer and the issue still happens.
Not for photo editing. Seriously, not for photo editing.

Summary: I received a VP950b as a replacement for one of my VP930b's. I bought the 930's because of their reputation as a good photo editing flat screen monitor. And they are pretty good for the price, when compared to other monitors by Lacie or Eizo. However this VP950 is a completely different monitor.
