Buy it for the monitor, mute the sound, blow off the webcam

Summary: I bought this at Costco for the same price. Comparing a number of monitors, this had the best picture quality. The picture resolution and colors are excellant. So I thought great and I also have the mic and webcam. At first i couldn't get the mic to work at all.
Summary: My family has purchased four ViewSonic monitors, and have been impressed with the quality. However, I am disappointed with this purchase. I will probably return it. 1) The webcam works, but the microphone is not compatible with my Macintosh computer.
Summary: For under $350, you get a 22" LCD with bright, crisp resolution. Huge difference over my old 19" viewsonic CRT. Haven't used the webcam yet, but it's a nice bonus to have. I have seen reviews on CNET that rate this monitor lower due to not having all the bells and whistles for various connections,...
Summary: good image , bad speakers , average webcam , it is too small the size of the screen. it is tall as 19 inches and of course wider than the 19'' but i would nt recomend to buy this monitor if u r looking for a big screen
Summary: When I first bought this monitor I was pleased at first. After awhile I began to realize how much darker the screen is in the top 1/3 of the screen as compared to the bottom. The screen gets progressively darker as you go from the bottom to the top of the screen and can be quite noticable on...
Forget the panel fiasco of the Samsung 226BW; get this.

Summary: Needed a cheap HD solution for my PS3 as well as a computer monitor. This monitor supports HDCP via DVI-HDMI cable on the DVI port. Stock colors are as accurate as you can get on a 22" TN panel, on par with an S panel Samsung 266BW. Lots of space, native resolution is 1680x1050.
Summary: Love the picture quality, but the speakers are so incredibly awful I am thinking of returning it! The sound quality is annoying, and forget listening to iTunes! So, now the dilemma, keep the monitor and buy external speakers or return it.
Summary: This is the second 22 inch ViewSonic monitor I purchased. This latest version included a built-in camera. The newest version has an improved look (all black including the stand)as well as better control buttons including the on and off switch.
Summary: Echo most of the comments on the board - video is quite nice the web cam is good though not great. The speakers are a joke - I got the integrated one to avoid having more items on my desktop - and while I am fine with the webcam I still have to get external speakers to watch a trailer online - worse...
