Cons: As other reviewers have stated, the left side of the monitor has turned pinkish and there are visible refresh lines and some horizontal banding occurring. Even though there is a 3 year warranty, ViewSonic wants you to ship it in the original box. I didn't bother hanging on to the box for this lon...
Summary: I hope the things last longer than the other reviewers have stated. I bought Viewsonic since my experiences have always been positive even when they were making CRT monitors. I hope my trust is not misplaced.
Pros: Lovely image quality. The almost non-existent frame is very attractive. Light, thin.
Cons: No VESA mounting threads for aftermarket mult-monitor mounts or wall mount. I didn't think any monitor these days would not have them, so I did not check. The monitor is permanently mounted to a pedestal that has the OSD (On-Screen Display) buttons and USB/Video/Audio connectors, so cables/wire p...
Summary: I checked monitor with multiple cables and different inputs, but tint and flickering was still present. I also checked the video card with another monitored and was working without any issues.
Pros: + good colors + no ghosting
Cons: - horrible built in speakers - 1 year and 8 months later screen is having issues. half of the screen is tinted purple and not refreshing properly.
Summary: It appears that VIewSonic forgets that the monitors should not have defects in the 1-st place. Substandard service. Certainly will not get our business ever again, and we have quite a few customers.
Pros: The monitor worked well for app. 2 years.
Cons: 3-year limited warranty conditions are not fully dis-closed by Viewsonic. You do not get the advance replacement after the 1-st year. All costs back to ViewSonic (shipping, packaging, etc.) are on you. The customer service reps are not empowered, and their management could not care less. We could...
Summary: Add in a more intuitive OSD and some better speakers and this monitor would be a real winner! :D
Pros: Good size, sturdy base, amazing picture quality.
Cons: The OSD is a bit difficult to navigate. Speakers are kind of wimpy and really don't sound all that good. Could be my machine, but when running graphics intensive applications the speakers produce a whining sound that goes away when I unplug the audio cable.
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
