Have loved Viewsonic since my first 15 CRT. They are rock solid

Summary: bought this unit used to replace defective screen (cat knocked off desk and screen cracked) in same model. Not only was unit in great shape now have lots of spare parts. The last VX1945wm lasted almost 6 years expect this one to last for at least 3 but with all the spare parts who knows. The only flaw or issue people have is with the Caps.
If you need a 19" monitor that's really nice, get this one!

Summary: Bought this as an upgrade and it more than fit the bill. It does require two 3.5 mm stereo audio cables, with one being a 2in1. Hook up all cables according to the downloadable user guide, under 'desktop monitors'/'discontinued products' from their homepage. Then enjoy the built-in 2.1 audio(that's right, it has a sub in the base unit w/vlume control), the 8in1 media card reader, microphone, headphone jack,and 4 USB 2.0 ports(3 front/1 rear) and an Ipod dock.
this is the best monitor I've ever had, and I highly recommend it!

Summary: I opened this monitor, and right out of the box it was amazing! I plugged ti up and got everything runnings, and it's so much clearer than any other monitor I have had! I've only had monitors before with the resolution of 1024 x 768, and this monitor is 1440 x 900. It's higher resolution, and more items can fit on one screen! I also love that it has a built in speaker, an ipod dock, usb ports, and sd card slots. Also, the dock even works with my iPhone 4s!
Summary: This a great product that produces a crystal clear picture at a resolution of 1440 x 900. It also has an IPOD dock and SD card readers built in the base. ViewSonic is the real deal, don't hesitate because their name isn't Dell, Sony, or HP!!
Excerpt: A computer will look more elegant with an LCD monitor. It is so slim that we can save space and make use of it. An LCD monitor is very convenient to use and won’t make our eyes very stressful.
Summary: I was a little leary to buy a refurbed monitor. I priced new and used monitors, but decided to take my chance with this one. I am very glad that I did. I have had no problems what-so-ever. Clean, clear images, good audio....VERY NICE MONITOR. I love the IPOD docking station. I can charge and play my IPOD directly from my monitor. I also have good words to say about the company I purchased it from. I did not know how to set it up at first.
Summary: I have used this monitor for our family room PC for over 3 years now. It is an excellent product and we have not had one problem with it. Speakers are great for low level listening to music or internet without blasting everyone out of the house. Granted they are not high quality surround sound big noise speakers but they are not meant to be. I have owned four previous ViewSonic monitors, all worked great.
Summary: I ordered the ViewSonic 19'' Widescreen Monitor for Christmas and received it today, January 4th. I thought it would be a fantastic monitor to hook to my laptop but ended up spending the evening in agony. The buttons locked up and i was not able to restore it to normal. Also it proves unwieldy. It is very heavy, the black piano finish appears oily/greasy and the power adapter gets extremely hot. Save yourself the anguish.
Summary: The color rendition of this monitor is really great. I'm using it spanned with an older Dell flatpanel, and the colors are so much better on the Viewsonic that it makes me reconsider how much I previously thought of Dell flat panels. However, everything else about the monitor is less than ideal: The bezel is large, and the reflective black distracting, and the monitor lacks color balance controls (The only two settings are brightness and contrast).
