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.
