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: 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.
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
Summary: Monitor arrived with two vertical gray blotches that ran through the entire screen. Stood right out on a white background. Had to RMA. The location of the controls is unacceptable. They are buried under the monitor, hard to get to, and provide zero tactile feedback.
Pros: Good looking. Solid Stand. IPS monitor. Low $$.
Summary: Nice looking monitor when it is off. It is LED, so it is energy efficient, and stays very cool. It's also extremely lightweight for it's size, which is nice. Other than that, not a very good monitor for average users.
Pros: Energy Efficient Lightweight Thin Bezel Built-in Speakers
Cons: Washed out colors Poor White Balance Built-in Speakers Inaccessible Controls
