Summary: Don't buy this monitor! Ok, so I had a pretty good experience with this monitor during one year and a month, but just a few minutes ago the left half of the screen got weird and useless. Basically now it looks like a grid of huge pixels with red and green lines between them, and a tendency to a blueish color.
Excerpt: I'm using this monitor as an external screen for my laptop. Homework and photo-editing is what I am doing most on it, although I need to get it calibrated so the colors match those of my laptop's screen. It's hard to navigate through the monitor's menu because the buttons are a bit difficult to press. (They're flush with the base and can't be "pushed") Otherwise, superb product. It's crisp and an all around wonderful monitor for an excellent price.
Completely satisfied with these as a low-cost dual monitor system

Summary: I bought two to pair with my mid-2009 17” MacBook Pro, for graphic and web design. Completely satisfied with these as a low-cost dual monitor system. I connect one via my miniDVD port, the other via USB, both with adapters* purchased on Amazon. The color is pleasing. Web jobs look great, and I don't see a huge shift in print work. They're not billed to be color-critical, but they're more than adequate for my professional needs.
Summary: One of my 7 year old 22 inch lcd monitors died, so bought 2 of these to replace them. Awesome monitors, bright crisp display, and windows 7 instantly recognized it and set the display. I didn't have to monkey with the settings at all, the monitors setup was great right out of the box. I highly recommend this monitor.
Summary: As a side note I ended up in the hospital(heart attack) 2 days after delivery so I could not re-submit my complaints...two weeks later I get out of the Hospital, and still no response. Honestly was too tired to deal with it.
Pros: Colors a Brilliant. Low Power. Monitor would get a 3 star rating if both worked, but there are some description flaws! Price was kinda good...paid 2x for one monitor tho.
Cons: Not sure if all this is New Egg's or Some being ViewSonic's fault but here goes: 1) Screen is not 23" 2) There is a gap between the bezel and the "viewable" part of the LCD. 3) These monitors are not VESA Mount compatible. meaning you cannot take them off the stands. 4) Ordered Two of these, one was delivered in perfect condition, the other with a cracked LCD panel. 5) New Egg never fulfilled my RMA request, sent same day as delivery. 6) Purchased a dual monitor stand...
Excerpt: This monitor had everything I was looking for. Excellent picture quality, HDMI port, built-in speakers, good looks etc. The price was also great. I use it mainly for work at home situations and occasionally for watching movies and it's awesome.
