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 because you don't know where they are. Thankfully, once you set it the way you look you never have to touch those controls again.
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 box to the screen and be able to watch programs. The sharpness and contrast are nice as well as the color reproduction, and the sound is not bad.
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. Web jobs look great, and I don't see a huge shift in print work. They're not billed to be color-critical, but they're more than adequate for my professional needs.
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. Takes a bit of time to "warm up" about 20mins it seems. I really dont like the power switch on the column. no wall mounting points. IPS is pretty good.
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.
Summary: After looking at buyer feedback on a number of monitors, I finally decided to try the Viewsonic VX2370. There are always negative reviews for just about everything, and there were some for this monitor. However, Viewsonic is one of the few manufacturers that provides a 3 year warranty, which speaks to them standing behind their products (more so than the 12 month warranty for most other monitors).
Excerpt: Either it was this one or Acer model. Chose this because this is the best IPS panel you can buy at this price. Only downside I can think of is 1) not VESA compatible and 2) cannot adjust height.
