Summary: I just got off craigslist for $130 for PC Gaming. I was a little hesitant before buying because there were such little reviews. Let me just say that the 120hz on this monitor looks wayyyyyyyyy better than a 60hz. I went down from a 1080p led too and I have not looked back. You will not be disappointed with the switch IF your a gamer. Do note that this monitor is really only meant for pure gaming.
Summary: This monitor is top quality. I have yet to have disappointing experiences with the purchase. I strongly recommend this monitor as it also has build in speakers. Its sleek design enables it to be displayed anywhere you want to and looks great.
Summary: Looks great, and does 120hz with a dual link DVI so it works with Nvidia's 3D vision kit, and looks awesome doing it. For a 2D monitor it is overpriced and lacks any real adjustment capabilities (software can do this for you), but you probably aren't buying this monitor unless you really want 120hz capability, and it's one of if not the cheapest you will find that can do it.
Summary: I got this monitor to go with the nvidia 3D vision & GTX 470 card. It is AMAZING in most every game I've tried it on, mass effect 2 being the only one that was not great. Great value and would buy again.
Summary: I bought this over a year ago. I have been an avid fan of viewsonic monitors since all my older ones have worked very well. I bought this gaming monitor after I had purchased the Nvidia 3D Glasses. The screen splits into 4 sections when I change the refresh rate to 120. I contacted Nvidia and Viewsonic about the issue and they both agreed it was an issue for Viewsonic to resolve.
Summary: For some odd reason I couldn't get this thing to run @ 120hz. I spent all day trying to get it to work, I've tried every single thing.....still..nothing. The screens would split into 4, everytime I set any game to 120hz. Also the picture is horrible, with no way of adjusting not one setting. All, & I mean ALL!!, my PC games looked dried out & blured. I've noticed that 80% of PC monitors don't have extremly sharp picture, like a HDTV does.
Summary: I have to say, this monitor rocks. I have been looking for a 120hz monitor and there is only a few out there. If you have the money to spend then I guess the alienware monitor would be a better choice. 120hz rock, I also have the 3D vision, and it looks awesome as well, I can't believe how nice 3D looks, I feel as if I am really in the game. I am sure you wont find a better priced monitor for what this one gives you.
Summary: Comments about Viewsonic X Series VX2265wm Widescreen LCD Monitor: Great screen, the best I ever had. But now Im thinking if there's another like this but with 1080p... 1680 x 1050 is good but is not the best... Next time, Next time....
Summary: I purchased this monitor because I loved how my existing viewsonic (about 6 years old now) looked, but I wanted a second, larger one. Also, the fast refresh option sounded like a nice thing to have. It actually arrived ahead of the ship date, totally defect free (no dead or stuck pixels, which I was worried about when I purchased it) and it looks beautiful beside my older viewsonic.
Summary: I've been a FPS gamer for 12 years. Back in 2005 i bought my first LCD, which was a decent replacement for my huge wonky CRT. I sacrificed Hz for more desk space. But recently i've really come to miss the smoothness that the CRT can deliver. I went digging into some reviews on this viewsonic and the competing samsung model and decided to go with this one. I have had this monitor for a few months now and i DO have a few beefs with it, but they aren't huge for me.
