Summary: I generally give a review more weight when the owner has had a chance to use a product for at least 6-9 months. Something just out of the box may seem fine, but over time its quality or cheesiness will become manifest. UPDATE: 3-24-2014 Purchased this ViewSonic VX1940w LCD monitor in Jan of 2009.
Summary: Bought the VX1940 in 2008 for about $130 to replace an CRT. After 3 years the electric savings alone would pay for it. Great picture. Sometime in 2009 the bulb burned out. Because of the very high shipping cost from Ohio to California Viewsonic agreed to pick up the tab to and from.
Summary: I do a lot of photography, video, and publishing, so my wife bought me one of these for christmas a while back. I've been very pleased with the monitor. The color matches the output on my large format canon printer as well.
Summary: This monitor is clear and crisp in resolution. No issues with it and more than worth the price. My cat shadow misses my old viewsonic though. There will be generations of cats that will never know the warmth of a CRT monitor on a cold winter night.
