Decent, but would like to stand it up next to some others

Summary: Before this monitor I had an older model Samsung that seemed a lot more sharp and vivid. Unfortunately that monitor died so I picked up this one. I feel that it lacks contrast, and no matter what I do I can't get it to give the image I'd like to have. It looks nothing like the screen on my Macbook Pro, and no matter how much adjusting I do, it will not come close to matching the colors. I also am not fond of the button system.
Summary: I ordered 2 Viewsonic VX2450WM-LED monitors. Both arrived in a single box in an appropriate amount of time. One of the monitors worked great. The controls on the other one could did not work so it had to be exchanged. Amazon has a great exhange policy. When I requested the exchange online they immediately sent the replacement so I had it the next day - the same day I sent the defective one back. The service was great!
Summary: just agreeing with what others have said, but wanted to add my experience. PROs: - good size for the price - colors are vibrant CONs: - a little too bright. I have mine down at 50% brightness, and I think it may still be a little too bright. Still trying to get the right brightness/contrast settings to look good for me. - the buttons on the monitor suck!!!! NOTE TO MANUFACTURERS: Stop using capactive buttons! They never work right. Regular buttons always just work.
Summary: I love this monitor. the menu is perfect and it has amazing contrast. the only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because of one dead pixel but that is not View Sonics fault... every monitor company has these once in a while.
Summary: I was a little hesitant to buy this monitor since I hadn't heard much about this brand before. However, I'm very happy with the purchase so far (had it for about a month now). The picture is huge and crisp. No complaints. It's just unfortunate that it doesn't have an HDMI input. Otherwise, this would have been five stars.
Summary: I am satisfy with the product and the quality of the delivery. It is a Good buy, however this product have no audio cable and hdmi adapter. When I finish setup the monitor, I have to go out to get an audio. cable and a hdmi adapter. My advice is remember to get it in advance to avoid last minute hassle. This monitor quality is great and the price you can't beat it from physical store.
Summary: This is a good overall monitor. The picture is clear, it's lightweight, and the colors are nice. This leads me to my issue with it.. the colors are nice, but the ViewSonic company doesn't have installation software that is compatible with OSX Lion (I emailed the company, and they told me in their reply). This makes it hard to get the proper colors on the monitor.
