Summary: I see reviews on how washed out the monitor is but I don't see that. sometimes I wonder have they been use to a $500 monitor and trying to compare this one. I think its all where you're coming from on the last monitor. I been buying those Acers and they stop working after a year and the vibrancy sucks. thought I would spend a little more money this time to see if I could get a little more use out of a monitor.
Pros: This ViewSonic VX2452mh blows away the Acer sitting next to it and plenty others I have had in the past. the colors are so vibrant, great price for a man on a budget but you feel like you get more than you paid for. the stand works fine who keeps messing with the stand and colors once you have made your adjustments, the reviews about the stand is irrelevant most companies on their budget monitors are like this as they have to figure out where to cut corners to keep it...
Cons: None! I tried to figure something that I didn't like about it and couldn't come up with anything, it looks fine!
Summary: These are great monitors. We have been buying them for work for the last couple of months. I have yet to receive a defective one or any with dead/stuck pixels. I think we have purchased 20 or so total now. Nice large, vibrant monitors with lots of input options (HDMI, VGA, DVI). It also has a 3.5 mm audio plug if you don't use the HDMI connection but you want to use the monitors speakers (which aren't great but you are buying a monitor for the image quality not the...
Excerpt: I have a 4-screen spread on my system at work -- 3 of them Viewsonic VA2406M and one VX2452MH (the VA2406m was EOL when I went to get a 4th monitor). The round stand on the 2452 is a little wobbly. A slight bump will set it wobbling back and forth, so I butt it up against and slightly behind the bezel of one of the other monitors and that does the trick. A good solid monitor mount would solve that problem as well. I appreciate the physical buttons along the bottom.
Pros: Cheap, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Good Color, Preeeeeeettttty
Summary: I've used dual monitors for quite some time at home. I used to use ViewSonic but switched to Samsung & LG maybe 7-8 years ago. My present (not cheap) LG has a somewhat washed out appearance. This is the second time in a row that a Samsung monitor hasn't lasted 40 months after purchase. For a while now, I've only been buying Samsung as far as our TVs (32" and 46" presently) and Smartphones (2 x S3s and one S4).
