Summary: I bought this monitor on Amazon on May 27, 2010 and was very pleased with just about everything. The speakers are okay if I just want to listen to music in the background while I'm working on the computer. When I hooked up my bluray player to the monitor, though, I could hardly hear the movie so I ended up buying an external speaker set. The four buttons on the side of the monitor are not the easiest to use.
Summary: I bought 15 of these monitors for my office. They were easy packaged well and shipped quickly. I have a very average technical ability and was able to unpack the monitor and get it set up quickly and easily. The screen is bright (one of my folks commented on this, I hadn't realized until I recalled that her monitors had a dull look after being used for a few years). It is very clear and provides a lot of real estate for your computing needs.
Summary: Second ViewSonic I purchased in the past two montsh and great. For less than $200 this screen is aswesome; 24" HD, built in speakers, connecting with DVi. Not the best picture in the world but very very good, especially for the price. Speakers are not uncommonly very good but fine for basic computing needs and listening to basic music; if you want good sound get external speakers anyway... Very highly recommended.
Summary: [...]It is a great monitor, but there is a caveat: although the monitor is full HD 1080p [1920x1080 resolution], the weak link is your PC's ability to provide a 1920x1080 input. We found out through Viewsonic tech support that our PC graphics cannot; and we may need an expensive video card to do so.
Summary: I bought this monitor from Office Depot for $279, which is a bit more expensive than what's available on Amazon.. so I wouldn't wince at this price at all. The laptop that this is being pared with won't output to 1920x1200 resolution so I had to get a 1080p monitor...and while I do prefer 16:10 for most purposes it's hard to argue with the 16:9 display for blu-ray.
Summary: I use my computer all day and decided to give my eyes a gift...a bigger display. I was going to get the Samsung 2343BWX, but it does not have integrated speakers and desk space is limited. The Viewsonic VX2433wm is a 24" display with 1080P resolution. The picture on this device is very nice and crisp. I use it primarily for email, web, and software development. I have also watched some movies just to test the picture and sound.
Summary: I wanted a large monitor for doing animation. The monitor is great, but I've found the quality to lack when using the VGA connection. My computer only has VGA, and there is significant static in dark colors. The good news is that it works perfectly when connected with DVI instead and I'm going to be getting a new computer soon that has DVI, so I'm not worried about it.
Summary: I bought two 24" monitors at the same time to find out which was better (and because two people need one). The other was the ASUS VW246H. This monitor has sharper text, and in my opinion looks better. The GUI isn't as refined as the Asus but one never really bothers with that after initial setup. The speakers on this monitor are a joke but I didn't buy a monitor for its speakers so it's not an issue.
