CruZ!, Amazon

  • 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.

Don't buy it!!!

LESLIE GAMAGE, Amazon

  • 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.

Terrible product!

Kevin J. Shulze, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased one of these monitors and after 7 months it failed. This is where my problems began. I have been waiting over a month for a replacement and of the 30 times (I'm not kidding) that I've called the so called customer support I keep getting the same answer. That it will be shipped overnight the next day. Well I've been waiting and waiting and finally went and bought a great 24" Samsung. This has been the WORST customer support experience I have ever had.

Poor quality monitor w/ brain-dead customer support.

Larry Latham, Amazon
13 November 2007
  • Summary: Bought the monitor after researching the reviews, and have regretted it almost every day since. After less than a month pixels went bad. I shipped the monitor back for warranty service. Six weeks later I still hadn't gotten it back, nor had I gotten the same story from the various customer service people I spoke with. Finally I was told they couldn't fix it and they were waiting for a new shipment to send me a new replacement.

advertised as versatile, but none of the features are really useful

tech jerk, Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: It has a iPod dock, but the iPod can not be used unless you computer are connected; It has a speaker with a subwoofer, but the sound quality is of such inferior quality, it is worse than any $10 speaker you can get in the market; It's image quality of among the average, not as sharp as NEC or Samsung It simply make no sense to buy such a thing at a price $200 higher tahn its competitor, without a single feature impressive, and worth the investment.

tsk tsk bad Viewsonic bad....

T. Huynh, Amazon
17 January 2007
  • Summary: I got this thing today from CompUSA and came here for the reviews because my ViewSonic died on me after 10 minutes. I've always liked Viewsonic for its beautiful monitors and I was loving this monitor for the entire 10 minutes. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try the dock. Speakers are nicer then most monitors but nowhere close to external speakers.I search for some reviews on large monitors and found out that a 20" has the same max resolution as a 22".

Didn't Consult iPOD Users in Design Process

Robert Thompson "Robert CEO", Amazon
9 December 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor to replace a Bose iPOD dock and was sorely disappointed. Great picture quality, but iPOD doc does not work. When you can get it to work the volume control is through an OSD in the monitor setup. The thumbwheel on the front only controls the base. I'm sending mine back. When I booted up with the monitor on and iPOD docked, Windows wanted to write over the iPOD thinking it was an improperly formatted drive. Shame on ViewSonic.
