Excerpt: I have just started using this monitor with a Mac Mini connecting it via HDMI. I was expecting a great picture as I had previously owned two other ViewSonic monitors in years past. I was not disappointed. Setting it up was very easy. I did not even have to do a lot of fine tuning.
Summary: The built-in speakers are a bit weak, but get the job done if you need something to hold you over. I'd advise external speakers or headphones if you plan on a media setup, but for system sounds they're fine. I didn't buy this for the speakers, so this is a pretty neutral point.
Pros: Does pretty much everything I'd want a monitor to do, and is very reasonable for the price.
Cons: I do wish it came with an HDMI cable, even a very short one. DVI, VGA, 3.5mm audio and AC line in are provided.
Summary: After about 1.5 years of use, the screen of the monitor went lime green. To make it a short story, It wasn't anything I did to provoke the fault it seems. I contacted them got an approval for the RMA and shipped it out for the repair, paid $80 for packaging and shipping .
Pros: sharp crisp, very clean display with a few exceptions that may be overlooked, the contrast, brightness very strong.
Cons: There are buttons underneath the screen (pretty typical). However I found it difficult to navigate between options in the menu, which button is for enter, up, down, select, and exit. Monitor did come with a few dead pixels but not enough for me to complain as none of them were star bright.
Excerpt: Super size your monitor. I sit in front of my computer screen all day (and sometimes into the night) and this super big monitor really helps enlarge my display area. I can even run split screen and see full pages of text.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful, Quiet
Excerpt: After connecting the monitor with an HDMI cable.I wasn't sure if I was satisfied with this product. Something just wasn't right. After changing the Digital color format from the default RGB setting to the YCbCr444 setting the monitor sprang to life and put a smile on my face.
Summary: How I use it: Home office Gaming console Videos for kids Pros: Very bright Crisp Every input type you'd need Big Cons: Speaker quality is cheap sounding Speakers through jack are not loud enough (okay through HDMI) I've had many ViewSonic monitors through the years. Never been disappointed.
Pros: This monitor is fantastic, one of the better ones that I've owned for this price, ViewSonic has done it again. After owning the monitor since August, I feel as though I would buy a second or third one. Amazing 60Hz and 27", definitely recommended.
Cons: Other than it not being 144Hz, nothing at all. freaking amazing monitor.
Excerpt: Accidentally trashed my monitor just before Christmas and for a awesome price and guaranteed delivery before Christmans B&H delivered on time and The clarity and features of this monitor fit perfectally into mywork needs...just ordered two more for my office.
Summary: I bought this monitor for my wife as a gift to replace her 24 inch Acer. I did extensive research on 27 inch monitors under $300 with an HDMI input and found this VIEWTRONICS monitor would be a good choice.
