Summary: Wonderful screen. Vivid colors that look great. Tilts for tall or short users. Some of the Monitors that I previewed did not tilt at all. Others had limited movement. For $165 and no freight by shipping to and picking up at Wal Mart, it is a great price!!
Summary: I ordered this monitor due to the View Sonic reputation and the excellent price. So far I have not been disappointed. I was using an Acer 20 inch monitor before and the View Sonic is a great step up. IMO I didn't have to adjust anything on the monitor itself.
Summary: We wanted second monitor for one of the laptops in our office. This one was inexpensive and our experience with the company has been favorable, so we ordered it. It works fine. Not as clear and sharp as one of our more expensive monitors, but we didn't expect that.
Summary: I bought this monitor for $169 new on Amazon. It works flawlessly for what I need it for, which is the monitoring of my CCTV system. I did not know the monitor included speakers built in, which is fantastic for me. I was going to have to go out and buy speakers for it.
Summary: The display arrived from Amazon on time and in perfect operating condition. The setup is easy as is the installation of the software along with the ease of online registration. The images are bright, clear and text is excellent from edge to edge and border to border.
Summary: Horrible monitor quality, run the other way. Have had about 15 of these for about 18 months. 5-6 failed at about the year mark. Viewsonic takes month to "fix". They have even shipped faulty monitors back to me. These monitors develop a light streak straight down the middle 1/3 of the screen.
Summary: I've had this monitor for a few months now. The image is sharp and clear. I sit next to a window that gets afternoon sun and have had no problem with glare. I don't watch videos with it, just once to test, so I can't say how good the refresh is for that.
Summary: I bought this monitor for my 79 year old mother (for mother's day). She needed a larger screen area because she was doing so much at once. She also wanted the smaller footprint of the lcd, since her computer area is not terribly deep.
Summary: I purchased two monitors even though only one of my old Gateway monitors went bad. Unfortunately, Gateway doesn't make what I used to have because it was a big mistake. The picture on these screens are all washed out and impossible to calibrate to something as nice as I'm used to seeing.
Works everywhere with caveats; but a great deal nonetheless

Summary: This is a nice monitor. I've had it now for a year and speakers suck. I've thought of getting the S but the jury ist still out on that one. I got this monitor originally for Vista. Works fine. Tried it on XP, no problems. Used it on Linux and yes XFree86 worked wonders and it ran there too.
