Mind-blowing display, minor negatives (capacitive buttons), sucky speakers (of course)

Summary: Let's get the con that no one cares about out of the way - the speakers are worthless. But we already know that, don't we? I've got real speakers pumping out the beautiful music, and only used the built-in speakers a couple times just to hear what they are about. This display is absolutely gorgeous. I purchased a laptop with an IPS display a couple years ago, and since then, my desktop's TN display wasn't good enough anymore.
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.
Excerpt: I'm using this monitor as an external screen for my laptop. Homework and photo-editing is what I am doing most on it, although I need to get it calibrated so the colors match those of my laptop's screen. It's hard to navigate through the monitor's menu because the buttons are a bit difficult to press. (They're flush with the base and can't be "pushed") Otherwise, superb product. It's crisp and an all around wonderful monitor for an excellent price.
Summary: One of my 7 year old 22 inch lcd monitors died, so bought 2 of these to replace them. Awesome monitors, bright crisp display, and windows 7 instantly recognized it and set the display. I didn't have to monkey with the settings at all, the monitors setup was great right out of the box. I highly recommend this monitor.
Excerpt: This monitor had everything I was looking for. Excellent picture quality, HDMI port, built-in speakers, good looks etc. The price was also great. I use it mainly for work at home situations and occasionally for watching movies and it's awesome.
Summary: I've had this monitor for several weeks now, and my wife and I are both very satisfied with it. I'm not a techie, and I was able to unbox it, disconnect the old monitor, and hook this one up in less than 15 minutes. The sharpness and color are excellent, and it looks really nice too. This monitor provides an excellent product at a very attractive price.
Summary: I am an iOS developer and I recently upgraded my Mac Pro and compromise my Apple Cinema Display 27" with ViewSonic to support my upgrade. I am glad I did. I love my new Mac Pro with my new ViewSonic monitor. I plugged in my HDMI cable which comes with it free and default color settings was natural which works and looks like Apple Cinema Display. I am not doing any graphics design or any other related work so this works perfectly for my setup.
Excerpt: Very nice replacement for my old 19" TN LCD. Although the controls are a bit hard to reach there is no need to naviage through the menus any more because there are shortcuts for common features that I just stumbled upon. (2 to cycle the input, down to adjust volume, and up to adjust the picture). Picture quality is excelent, no issues with glare and it connects easily to both my PC and XBOX 360.
