Summary: Great monitor for the price. Love it. Might get two and put them side by side using Fusion display for tweeked out side by side monitor usage such as clone or multiple. Havent used the speakers yet but I have my HDMI attached to my tv so just the VGA port which doesnt transmit sound.
Summary: Great monitor. I needed a 1920x1080 resolution and used the included HDMI cable with my laptop that has a 1920x1080 resolution. This made it easy for using Remote Desktop maximized into other system I maintain. I was having a problem with a lower resolution monitor with having to scroll around the multiple remote desktops. Color and clarity are spot on and the Matt finish on the screen eliminates glare. Power consumption is negligible with LED backlighting.
Perfect Mid-cost Monitor - Ignore what people say about the controls

Summary: Set up easily right out of the box - plugged it into my mac, and it worked instantly. Colors were perfect for me. Anyone who says the controls are too much of a pain to use must be just really really lazy. All you have to do is look under the monitor and you can easily see them and change the settings once you know which button does what - there are only 5 buttons, so if shouldn't be that hard for anyone.
Summary: Best computer monitor I've ever used. No heat. Even better, it's LED back-lit rather than fluorescent. That means there's no light bulb to blow out and render the monitor useless. As a retired/disabled desktop computer tech, I can appreciate the fact that this may very well be the last computer monitor I need to buy--and I expect to be around for at least another 20-30 years.
Pros: First off got this for 159.99 when they had a sell on then sad i didn't buy 2 but one works well anyways. The speakers are very amazing regardless what others say the disk comes with some software to tweek if needed the picture is crisp and amazing
Cons: Not a bad thing but the speakers are turned all the way up.
Summary: I’ve owned nothing but ViewSonic monitors since 1991, and this monitor won’t lose them a customer. In fact, every other aspect is so good I almost rated it 5 Stars in spite of those horribly designed screen controls. But 5 Stars implies perfection, ...
Summary: I bought this as a second monitor for my laptop, and I LOVE IT. The display is great, the size is perfect, and the sound is good (it has speakers! I must have missed that at first). It adds more wires to my desk, but having a second monitor is worth it. I definitely recommend this one.
