Summary: This monitor has proven to be better than expected. The price was great and the quality is excellent. Color and clarity are outstanding. It looks nice and the size of the stand is not intrusive on my desk. The sound is a bit tinny, but I did not purchase this monitor to listen to music. I am very satisified with the purchase of this monitor, plus I like the little birdies in the upper left hand corner.
Summary: I am so pleased with this monitor. The display is incredible, and blu-rays discs play spectacularly. The large viewing area makes working a snap. Comes with all the cables you'll need. The speakers are pretty underwhelming, but then again I didn't purchase it for them :) I totally recommend this monitor. Update 12/27/2012 I like this monitor so well, I just ordered a 2nd one. I like how it has 2 HDMI inputs, and a VGA input.
Summary: The monitor is just as described. I really like the photo frame stand feature. Colors and contrast are great. Sound is generally tinny though but I didn't get it for its speakers. Sleek design and very light.
Summary: The clarity, color, resolution and response time for this monitor are all very impressive. I use this monitor daily for work. The full-HD resolution is awesome. The colors are extremely vibrant and clear. My son plays Warcraft on this monitor and for gaming the response times are noticeably better than with the older 720p monitor that I was using. The whites are *true* whites unlike the older LCD 720p monitor that I was using.
Summary: My TV died (I was using it as a computer monitor and TV) and I was forced to use an old 15" LCD monitor (YUK!). This Viewsonic had to perform double duty. It has an excellent picture (very sharp and crisp) and fits perfectly on my desk. The speakers don't sound very good, but I didn't buy it for it's sound! Some of the programs I use work very well with 2 monitors, so someday I'll definitely buy another one of these.
Summary: PROS: * price * great picture quality * picture frame set-up can lower the screen a lot, helping reduce eye strain (ergonomic recommendation is the top of the monitor at eye level). This is good looking too! CONS: * No VESA mount (in ideal world, this should be part of the product description) * No DVI input if that's important for you OTHER NOTES: * This thing is not overly bright; some complain that since the brightness is set at 100% out of the box; just reduce it...
Summary: Great deal. I now have 3 of these. If ViewSonic maintains their current quality and value level, I see no reason to look elsewhere. Nice frame, easy setup, great features including the tilt feature of the screen. Thanks for a job well done.
