Summary: Pros: The monitor looks great and has many great features -- card readers, integrated speakers, USB ports and iPod dock. Cons: I have a new iPod nano with a video screen and it is not recognized when I put it into the dock. I appears to be charging, but the computer is unable to recognized that I have the iPod plugged in. But when I use the official Apple USB cable (plugged into the monior's USB port) it does recognize it.
Summary: Was expecting a unique unit which would allow me to uniquely integrate my IPod and PC. What I got instead was a nice looking monitor with ok graphics, tinney sounding speakers and menu buttons which discourage you from making any adjustments to the settings due to their feel and non ease-of-use. The number of USB ports and card readers on the base are the shining points of this monitor. I paid the bucks but didn't get any bang!!!

Summary: The quality of the display is excellent, which is to be expected from a viewsonic product. The Ipod connectivity and sound quality is terrible. I bought this monitor so I could play my Ipod through the monitors speakers, something I assume everyone who purchased this product would want to do. Volume control on this monitor is a two part adjustment. A wheel in the base of the monitor kind of controls the volume of the built in sub(standard)woofer.
