Great Monitor Poor Speakers & very limited iPod functionality

Summary: I called ViewSonic prior to purchasing this monitor. I wanted to be able to dock my iPod and play/view the movies or videos from the iPod right there on the monitor. When I talked to ViewSonic's sales people they said it would work that way. I went ahead and purchased the monitor and Nope.
Summary: The first impression after you buy a VX2245 is that this thing is really BIG and comes in a huge box. Upon opening the box you discover two big pieces of styrofoam protecting the display and around them are ALL the cables you need, even the USB one.
Summary: "I wil never come back to buy in SKY BOX-USA.It has been my worst experience in Amazon.com. The company sent me a refurbished monitor and the page didn't say that no was new.They sent me the monitor in a package which was not the original, and it came with a broken corner.SKY BOX didn't want to pay...
Great....Like NEW! Flawless EDIT: DEAD after 3 years :(

Summary: Everything's great... A great buy for only $180. Ipod dock w/ mic a bonus. Speakers are OK. Subwoofer is OK too. Huge 22" LCD NO dead pixels EDIT: DEAD after 3 years :( Normal 6-8 hours/day usage....seems like capacitors are gone.. only lasted 3 years....disappointed!
Summary: I used to have 2 15" monitors. I decided to get rid of one though. Now I have this 22" and my old 15" standing side by side. The difference is ENORMOUS. This monitor is much brighter too. I got it for only $180, which is pretty cheap for a 22".
Summary: Am I the only one who got the impression from the box, that you could watch movies from any iPod on this monitor? Yes, I have an iPod synched to my computer to watch movies, but what about my roommates and friends who are not synched to the computer.
Summary: Great picture and a much larger display than my 19" Viewsonic VP920b LCD. Once the monitor is installed in XP Pro and the ATI HD3650 video card drivers setup for the correct 1680x1050 monitor resolution wow it is an impressive display but only when setup with the correct viewing angle.
