Summary: My home office desk looks like it's from the future now. I used the VESA mount on the back to attach my ASUS Chromebox and use a wireless mouse and keyboard. The built-in speakers are surprisingly good. I was initially using dedicated computer speakers but I have since removed them. The speakers are plenty loud enough for my day to day use. The HDMI port allows me to hook up my Playstation or XBox with ease.
Summary: It's a very good monitor, but you need to reach into the settings after you turn this one on. Bright, and sound is pretty low. Positives are a very clean and clear screen, lightweight, no power brick (takes the existing plug from my old monitor), and VGA, DVI, HDMI connectors on the back. Only negative at this point is the original settings and sound. My old monitor had speakers mounted in the lower bezel; this one produces sound from the back of the monitor.

Summary: Beautiful monitor. BUT (and I hate to complain) the base that's included is the poorest excuse for a monitor stand as I've ever seen! It doesn't tip- and I don't mean over. The monitor is 'fixed in place' on the base- no swivel, no tipping, no nothing. I have the front part of the base sitting on 3 pieces of wood so as to make the monitor 'plumb' or else it appears to be falling forward! If not for that? I'd give it a 5. Now going to look for another base.
Bought at about $160, definitely worth price. Great product.

Summary: Excellent - does exactly what I expected it to, and looks great. Colors are mostly true initially, and that can be adjusted if it is a big deal for you as far as hues and saturation and such. Excellent 1080p viewing and the game mode works amazingly with games - everything is easier to see and all that good jazz with game modes on monitors and such (I'm fairly new to advanced next gen gaming and all that - until recently my newest system was a Wii).

Summary: What can I say - a monitor is a monitor, right? This was my first ViewSonic monitor and I'm very excited to have it. I've been sucked into the online gaming world and this monitor was recommended by an online friend. Home Run!! It's simply to attach the base, adjust the angle, and install the driver (included on media). My son has tried twice to swap this monitor for his. I would also recommend this monitor for all computer enthusiasts.
Excerpt: We wanted good resolution for photography and decent refresh rate and speakers for the occasional tv show or movie. We reviewed many models and specifications. This model exceeded our requirements, but it cost less than slower models, so we got it and are very pleased with it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Summary: ONE. DEAD. PIXEL. I can't look at the monitor without staring at it.... That being said, this is a great monitor and I couldn't be happier but dangit! A dead pixel is unacceptable to me. Quality build. Sturdy construction. Vibrant colors and a great price to boot.
