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...
Summary: I've been using ViewSonic monitors since the old CRT days, so when I wanted to upgrade my old 22" to a full HD monitor, I bought this one. What I thought I was getting was a monitor with a slightly larger screen, and better resolution. What I got was the better resolution, but in a 21" display...and I know it's 21" because I measured it.
sound quality is poor both speaker and line out; Frameless is meaningless.

Summary: For HDMI, the only way I can get sound is through the monitor, either using its built in speaker or line out. Unfortunately, both have unacceptable poor sound quality. The displayable area does not extend to its "Frameless" frame, so I don't see the purpose of the "Frameless" design.
Lost resolution on left half of screen, speakers poor

Summary: I have always been a big fan of Viewsonic however I am less so today. I am sad to report that after about 9 months the left 3rd of the display is showing a loss of resolution. The right hand side is perfect, but the left third shows pixels at about 1/2 the resolution. I sent an email to Viewsonic support and received no response. Also I should mention the speakers are terrible. Spend $10 and get an add-on pair. They will sound much better.
Summary: I bought two of these because the price was low but one has gone bad with a green tint on the left side taking up 1/4 of the display. The colors and contrast are ok but not very good next my Asus display. The controls are impossible to see being recessed into the base and you have to see them because they are very sensitive. Although they state a high contrast the screen is almost completely washed out on any white background.
Summary: I read great reviews about this monitor, and I was aware of the inconvenient location of the settings buttons (they are not that bad, but not as easy as some other brands) I am very disappointed in the quality and look. I was expecting a monitor that was clear and had good color..
Pros: Good price and made this purchase based on the reviews
Cons: When I first turned this monitor on, I noticed the whites are more grey looking than white. I attempted for hours to adjust the monitor and my video card just to get a decent looking screen. I then bought an LG IPS monitor and can clearly see that something is not right with this monitor. I never could get the white/black to look good and the color has a washed out look
Pros: I love the frameless design and it's the perfect size. exactly what I was looking for.
Cons: Line down the middle and far left of the screen, extremely visible with a dark background. Very disappointing. This just delays my work schedule more; being that I have to return this monitor and prey I get one that's not defective. I'm sure just taking an extra 10min to check the monitors, before shipping them out, would make us ( the CUSTOMERS, who give them our MONEY )a lot happier. That point is to have repeat customers, right?
Summary: I bought this to replace a 5-year old Optiquest 20" (which still works great, I just wanted a newer, more efficient monitor). Sadly, it's a disappointing monitor. I cannot turn down the brightness enough to make the screen bearable to look at for any length of time. I also cannot get the colors adjusted to suit my taste.
Pros: No dead pixels.
Cons: Cannot turn down brightness enough. Colors not great.
Summary: The monitor is dark and doesn't show whites clearly. If you put up the contrast to make things artificially brighter, you lose greys. For instance, if you are using excel with increased brightness you will lose the gridlines. Spend ya money elsewhere.
