Summary: I've had this monitor for about 2 years now. It was all fine in the beginning but after a year or so, the DVI port broke down on me (ie no signal can be detected using the monitor's DVI port).
Cons: Viewsonic used to make good CRT's but they have really dropped the ball in LCD's. My DVI port died after using linux and after paying for shipping, i got the monitor back with all the cables (which they forced me to return also) were missing. don't buy from viewsonic. you'll be sorry.
Summary: I bought an ATI FireGL V3400 to test with the monitor, mainly because the "gaming" cards lock CAD programs and the like out of any real performance gain (software openGL faster than hardware...) To my surprise, the DVI still didn't work.
Pros: Matches my older Viewsonic VX910 in appearance (for dual-head).
Cons: DVI output didn't work. Bought it together with an XFX nVidia. After I got no image, I looked on the 'net and found that for years now apparently Viewsonic has had problems with nVidia cards in the DVI connection---something to do with the firmware not being correctly programmed into the monitor ...
Summary: Purchased this LCD Monitor for use with several machines: analog was hooked up to a PowerMac G5; DVI was hooked up to my Dell Laptop. Everything seemed to work as planned until I rebooted my laptop (dual boot configuration into Linux) and the DVI went out on the monitor.
Pros: Excellent response time, no ghosting whatsoever in games. DVI looks great and it's hard to go back to 4:3 screens once you get used to the widescreen. Contrast level is pretty good when watching movies.
Cons: DVI STOPS WORKING. There is a _known problem_ with these, and some Dells that apparently use the same substrate / panels, that causes the DVI connector to stop working entirely. Just go to Google and search for "VX2025WM problem" and you'll see plenty of people complaining about the problem. Yet,...
Summary: El día 07/11/2006 compre según informaban las mejores paginas de hardware el mejor monitor del mercado Viewsonic VX2025WM, el día 1 Noviembre del 2009 (menos de 3 años) de repente me sale una línea vertical de color amarilla en el centro de la pantalla, tras ponerme en contacto con el servicio...
Cons: Pagar una buena marca que luego no dura ni 3 años .
