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. Doesn't work.
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. The booklet with the software CD was not mounted anywhere inside the box and "flew" around free.
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 for the returning,so i had to buy another one.BE CAREFUL BUYING TO SKY-BOX, THEY'RE CHEATERS.
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". I can look at my photos in almost full res (well it's much more detailed than on a 15" screen). I can watch DVDs and TV on this monitor, and it turns out very sharp, even better than on my TV :).
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. I thought they could also watch movies from my screen. Boy was I wrong! Get a quality monitor and forget about the iPod dock.
