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: 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: 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...
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.
Excerpt: I loved this monitor, had to do an exchange because there were dead pixels. But, I'm patiently awaiting the exchange. It's a great size, nice color, and comes with everything you need to hook up to computer.
Excerpt: Great Monitor for the price. I was really hoping that it would make my photo pop a little better with editing with Lightroom to get them a better printing match. Seems my photos are coming out darker then pass monitor. Maybe need to pick up a spyder caliber.
Summary: An extremely stylish and good monitor. One problem I had right out of the box was that the picture coming out didn't fill the screen, but I fixed that easily with my card drivers. other than that, no problem at all with this, Very happy with it.
Pros: -Sharp but not too sharp -Color is great -Frameless -Very classy -Decent integrated speakers -Very cheap
Cons: The pictures make it appear to have a very thin bezel. It actually has about a half-inch wide border on the actual display itself that I'm calling a software bezel. It's just black and creates a kind of letterbox effect. I bought two to use side-by-side, and the bezel ruins the flow.
