Summary: This isn't the WORST monitor in the world, but I've owned 4-5 LCD's in my lifetime and it is by far the worst I've owned. I am sure someone not as picky as me would love it.
Pros: This monitor is bright, and the colors aren't too bad, it has a sleek design, if I had never seen an LCD/LED monitor in my life, this monitor would be pretty amazing
Cons: Comparing this monitor to the 2-3 year old ones I already have, the colors don't compare, even the brightness. I got this monitor because I heard it was BRIGHT, and it is just mediocre. Ghosting is present, brightness lacks a bit. This is the second ViewSonic I've gotten not very happy about.
Summary: i won't be purchasing from newegg.com again, you had your chance.
Pros: 24' decent design
Cons: VOLUME SPEAKERS DON'T WORK but i dont blame Viewsonic, I BLAME NEWEGG.COM make sure your products work before selling it to hard working honest people. what kind of a modern monitor doesn't have HDMI! i have a converter but lordy lord viewsonic wake up and get with the program
Summary: This is a nice monitor at a good price, but one of the buttons doesn't work. I'm unable to increase contrast, brightness, volume, etc, beyond the "factory presets". The down button works fine, but if I want to turn up the brightness, I have to reset the monitor settings.
Pros: Crisp graphics Clean appearance Light weight Attractive price No dead pixels
Cons: Arrived with a broken button. The "up" button is non-functioning. No HDMI, but I knew that when buying the monitor.
Summary: The monitor has SEVERE backlight bleeding. On a black screen, the top and bottom edges are lit up to a bright blue color. Also, the bottom third of the screen is MUCH brighter than the rest of the screen.
