Summary: While it is 120hz resolution be warned it has no backlight, meaning it will look less-bright compared to most 1080 monitors. The resolution is odd, forcing any video editing of game footage captured into a 720 resolution for best results if uploading to an external site like YouTube.
Summary: I would like to make 2 points #1 This is *not* a drop in replacement for a CRT monitor for watching 3D movies and images. Though it has pure 120hz refresh capabilities , this mode, called "3D mode", isn't actuated unless you are using nvidia 3D vision with certain nvidia graphics cards.
Summary: When I was playing competitive FPS games (CS Source) I constantly heard from many good and experienced players that 120 HZ monitors truly make a difference in your gaming. At first, I scoffed when I heard that.
Summary: I am extremely happy with this monitor. It is the best priced monitor for 3D gaming. The only reason I gave this monitor 4 stars is because of some black light bleeding, but its something I can live with since I get to play games in 3D now!! Pros: 3D!! Price Cons: Black Light Bleeding No HDMI Input
Summary: I'm very pleased with the jump to 3d. This monitor paired with nvidia's 3d vision set gets the job done. I would highly recommend this monitor to anyone who is thinking about getting into 3d but has a tight budget.
Pros: - The 120hz refresh rate looks great in 2d! - The brightness is solid considering it's not an LED-LCD. - No dead pixels, everything looks clear and crisp. - I haven't seen any ghosting or blurs (aside from one issue which was resolved (see cons).
Cons: - 3d is a bit dark but not unexpectedly so, if you can afford choosing an LED 3D monitor I'd recommend it. - Had some minor problems running at anything over 60hz. After troubleshooting for hours with nvidia and viewsonic drivers, I found a solution. If you find yourself having the screen-door ef...
Summary: As Always ViewSonic have given us a good product at an affordable price, the monitor has an excellent image quality especially for watching HD videos and gaming. I also has built-in speakers (AUDIO 2x2-watt SRS WOW HD*) I bought it for regular PC use and occasional gaming.
Summary: First off, I bought this monitor to upgrade from my previous one which was a 19in 1440x900 monitor. There is nothing wrong with the old one, but I thought it was a good time for a change. I'm an avid gamer who play games like Call of Duty MW, SC2, GTAIV, etc.
Summary: ViewSonic clearly did their job when it came to designing these monitors, they even use plenty of protective tape during shipping to protect the finish. If you're lucky enough to get a perfectly constructed monitor, they're fantastic.
Pros: This monitor at the time of purchase was the cheapest true 120hz display on newegg.com
Cons: I've received 5 of these monitors over the last month. 3 of them had defects. 2 of them were dead pixels ( less than 2 in the corner of the screens ). 1 even had a poorly assembled bezzle such that the panel's guts were peaking out. All of these defects were minor, but the kind of customer intere...
Summary: The only reason I gave this monitor 4-eggs is because of the multiple cons. Most people dont use built in speakers so that is a no brainer, but the others could be an issue for some. There have been complaints about this and other 120Hz 3D ready monitors when using an AMD/ATI video card.
Pros: 120Hz, 3D ready if your into that, great for gaming, this monitor shows very high frame rates while playing games, with no ghosting or tearing . Controls are easy to figure out, their right up front on the bottom of the monitor. The colors are bright and clear, and the backlight is well sheilded ...
Cons: ViewSonic usualy makes solid stands, but this ones pretty flimsy (if you dont have a solid serface it will shake). The power button is a little on the small side and doesn't stick out very far. The speakers aren't all that good, but I didn't buy it for them, I just tested them to see if they were...
