Summary: RA update. Received back my second RA monitor in about a year. Took about a month for the turn around. Not bad considering it was just after the Xmas holidays. They sent me the monitor. Just the monitor, sans power cord and power supply.
Pros: Nice screen
Cons: Does not last more than about a year and Viewsonic service seems to have lost it's pickle.
Summary: Bought one and loved it so much I bought a second one. At about 13 months the first one died, totally dead. At 14 months the second one dies, left side of the screen went pink. Each RA took about a month. Just received the second RA today, without power supply.
Pros: Great price and very good color. Really good for the price. 3 year warranty, thank [fill in your favorite deity].
Cons: Bought 2, both died within 14 months. Thy just don't last.
Excerpt: So far so good but it has only been several weeks. Fantastic graphics, easy to set up. I do agree the buttons to make changes with brightness, etc, are in an awkward place. Great screen for a very reasonable price. Everything I needed to hook up the monitor was included in the package.
Summary: I recieved this monitor from NewEgg on 6/23/13 and instead of the Pink Hue everyone else is getting, I am getting a blue hue with scan lines on the left side of the screen. I started getting this issue last month hoping I could get it resolved with new drivers or changing the monitor settings.
Pros: It was pretty while it worked. Integrated Speakers saves space
Cons: Horrible controls Shorter than expected lifespan
Pros: Thin, crisp image, good response time while it lasted.
Cons: Today, almost 21 months after purchase, the left side of the screen became pink and pixellated, with visible refresh lines. I agree with the review by Joseph M., and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
Summary: Excellent screen, only let down by OSD control location.
Pros: Beautiful display with good colour and brightness consistency. It has VGA, DVI and HDMI, plus audio. Built-in speakers are OK for very basic sounds, not for music, obviously.
Cons: 1 bad thing: The controls are in an amazingly bad spot. Who thought it would be a good idea to hide them on the base, behind the panel? I pretty much have to put my head on the desk to be able to see the controls. They are touch controls, which is sort of cool, but you cannot use them by feel bec...
Excerpt: The monitor was purchased to add to a laptop for desktop use. It is a very nice monitor for the price and is good size for viewing. The input options are nice that it has VGA, DVI & HDMI so it is versatile for what needs you may have and since it has speakers included you can hook up a DVD or cable...
