Summary: I purchased this monitor for my stepson who is a gamer, he wanted a large screen for mmo games. This monitor has met all our expectations. The picture is bright and clear in both a lit and unlit room. The set up was very easy. The design is sleek and stylish. Big screen! Even small text is easy to read.I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the market for a 24 inch monitor.
Summary: One of the most inexpensive 23.6 monitor in the market. Highest C/P value. However, even though it shows 24", it is not. It's only 23.6, smaller if you are used to 24" monitor. The other drawback is its support is not stable enough.
Gives me a headache - blurry, poor color representation
10 August 2012
Summary: My work purchased this monitor for me as a secondary display. I would NEVER have spent my own money on it. I work as a web developer, and stare at two screens all day long. One screen is on a Dell XPS 15z laptop, which is beautiful, sharp and accurately displays all colors. This Viewsonic VX2450 monitor is utter crap. The screen is blurry, even with the highest resolution settings.
Pros: Inexpensive. Large. Doesn't get hot.
Cons: Blurry even on the highest resolution settings, poor color representation, tiny viewing angle. This monitor will give you a headache if you use it for more than an hour.
Summary: Awesome monitor! I have not used the built in speakers yet but the controls on the monitor are of the touch type not the old button style. And if your not currently using an LED LCD you should upgrade, the difference on brightness and eye strain is amazing! I'm very happy with my purchase!
