Summary: I am very disappointed with my purchase. The video quality of this monitor is poor. The default video settings on this monitor washed out the display. I turned down the contrast and up the brightness and it made it better but my inexpensive Asus 22" monitor is much clearer, and crisper side by side. I had hoped for a better monitor. The built in speakers are also very quiet and useless. I would not do this purchase again. I would go with something different.
Summary: Well, pros: Like the other reviews, the screen is an eye opener. Nice and bright. Good definition. I havent bothered with the speakers due to the other reviews. I will continue using my stand alone ones. I like the sound that they give, plus, speakers always suck when built into a monitor. The touch feature are dual(meaning Two fingers, not three or four) So it should be a dual touch, but I guess multi touch sounds better.
Summary: I bought this monitor to see how it would work with a couple of applications I use. I played with the iPad before and had set it up to use remote desktop services to access my Windows desktop. The iPad was too small to properly utilize the programs so I thought a larger touchscreen might work well..
Summary: in terms of a "monitor" It has very good, well lit, and crisp display, very fast and efficient refresh (which is especially impressive considering it also integrates a touch matrix into the screen) great color, and 1080p, seriously watching blu-rays and playing PS3 are an absolute pleasure on this thing. It also has an impressively wide veiwing angle.
Great monitor at the right size - used as secondary monitor

Summary: Screen is quite crisp and the 1920x1080 resolution looks sharp on this 22" screen. I've had this one and the Acer T230 - DEFINITELY go with this one, hands down. I use as a secondary monitor. NOTE: you have to go into Tablet PC Settings in Control Panel to set it up to work as a secondary screen. I didn't know this when I originally set up, couldn't get it working and returned my first monitor I bought. Thought it was ViewSonic's driver problem.
Summary: While this seems to be a good buy, the internal parts are the same as an Acer, which is much cheaper, and the Compaq (HP) 2105tc, but costs 70.00 more. for the money, it doesn't make sense to pay more for the same thing.

Summary: If you are running Windows 7 (which every one should if not using a Mac) this monitor works like charm , installation and set up took less time than it took to unpack the package( no need to install any drivers) . multi touch also works great, you can flip, zoom in and out and browse photos by this feature. I liked it so much i just ordered another one. going to get all my clients using this monitor.
Yes, Virginia, there is an XP touchscreen driver for this thing...

Summary: The kind folks at Viewsonic have carefully concealed the fact that, as shipped, the touch-screen function of this model does not work under Windows XP. Yes, if you read the user guide, it says "connect the USB cable to your Windows 7 system," but that's the ONLY indication that this much-ballyhooed touchscreen monitor is a touchscreen ONLY if you have W7. In fact, if you e-mail them, they will say that no XP driver is available.
