Summary: ViewSonic made a huge mistake when including tiny (tinny?) speakers to their monitor because expectations are raised for an integrated video/audio system. Not so. Buy this for its sharp, clean image quality and not with the idea of taking your speakers off your desk.
Summary: I bought the Viewsonic VX2245WM LCD Monitor because I wanted a large screen monitor for a good price & by the specifications given on the Viewsonic homepage, I felt that this monitor would be comparable with other monitors that were more expensive.
Summary: Let me begin by first agreeing the general assessment that the sound is truly awful. But seriously, what's so surprising? The thing has a 3 inch sub woofer. I laughed when I read it and again when I heard it. I didn't expect great sound, so I'm not disappointed.
Summary: I really like this monitor. It is bright and beautiful. Works great with Mac OS X 10.4.9 It comes with a quick set-up sheet, and that is all you need to see where the various cables go. The Mac recoginizes it instantly.
Summary: I love this thing. The display is excellent. At 22" wide screen you can easily run several programs, or display two full pages of word processing text. I use it for PhotoShop and the colors and resolution are excellent.
Excerpt: This screen is incredibly high quality and very easy to set up. It took me only 15 minutes from opening the box to having it running flawlessly. The USB hub at the bottom of the screen is very handy and ,even if you think you won't use it at all, it quickly becomes an invaluable tool .
Pros: Fantastic image quality, Handy USB hub, iPod dock is very easy to use
Cons: Mediocre sound quality, Hard to install card reader drivers, Can't view videos on iPod
