Summary: Nice screens for working. I would buy a different screen if you plan on gaming. The colors aren't great compared to other monitors, but it's an affordable 27" monitor. I use two of them for work purposes, and occasionally hook one up to my laptop for gaming. I'm certainly not impressed with the colors while gaming, but gets the job done just fine for work.
Summary: Great monitor. Bouth ViewSonic over other brands because for a 27" they have the least amount of 'acceptable' dead pixels. I think it was if the monitor had 3 then you can send it back while all other brands ad 5-9 dead pixels required to send it back. Personally I think 1 is too many if it is anywhere but the edge of the screen. I got lucky, NO dead pixels, and it has beautiful color for under $300.
Excerpt: So I had some rewards money that I was looking to spend. I decided to give this monitor a try. I've been working in the IT field for about 20 years, and have long regarded Viewsonic as one of the best for Monitors. They've usually been a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. I got one in December, and everything has been great. I got another one in either January or February of this year.
Summary: I purchased this monitor to replace two 19" 4:3 monitors I had on the desk. I love the single larger display. Image quality and brightness is great and for game play the image refresh rate seems fine to me. The sound quality leaves a lot to be desired so if you are someone who likes high fidelity sound, use real speakers...don't expect this to be super quality. But I did not buy this for listening to music...it's a computer monitor.
Summary: Love the monitor! Easy to install, good graphics. Backlight takes me "aback" a bit after it has been in sleep mode and I start the computer up again - very bright! Have the same one at work and the IT guys highly recommended so I purchased same for home when I had to replace my old one.
