Summary: I purchased 2 of these monitors on May 17, 2011. On March 19, 2012, one of the screens stopped working. I inquired via the ViewSonic website about support options and was told that the warranty is only good for 90 days!
Summary: I bought this unit last May, and was happy about it until 5 months later. There were two vertical lines appeared in the middle of the screen. I shipped it back to ViewSonic under the warranty. The monitor was back soon after, but instead of two lines, the screen was pitch back.
Summary: I purchased this monitor for my husband in February 2011 and it was a wonderful monitor while it worked. In June, the screen went green and we contacted Viewsonic for repair under the warranty.
Excellent Gaming PC Monitor if the tint did not turn Lime Green

Summary: I helped research this item for my son who gave his mother his ASUS 24 inch LCD Monitor for her laptop and wanted something just a little bigger in screen size. I read the reviews (Witch are stellar) which not only meet all my other requirements (27 inch screen, 1080p, VGA, DVI,and HDMI ports) it...
Summary: 17" LCD with res of 1280 X 1027 Pixel Pitch .264 mm 19" LCD with res of 1280 X 1024 Pixel Pitch .294 mm these are not wide screen. same resolutions but one is bigger what would the res be if this 27" was made with the .264 mm pixels?
Pros: I don't own this.
Cons: I keep watching for a large monitor that has a good high resolution, have yet to see one. I have a 24" that is 1920 X 1200 Pixel Pitch 0.27 mm which is good for its size. Wish it was higher tho... Now a 27" with less res. ?? I feel that this size should have at least 1920 x 1200 . But if they use...
Summary: Replaced an HP 22" (3 years old) with this Viewsonic. The colors on that HP are way better!!! Then again the HP screen wasn't washedout.
Pros: Very Big! Even going from an HP 22" this is a ver nice size screen. USB hub and USb ports .
Cons: Out of the box the screen looked washed out as previous owners stated. Calibrate the color but still looks washed out. USB Hub stopped working after 60 days!! Live support at Viewsonic SUCKS!!!. They are RUDE!!! I wanted to exchange the monitor but they will not because a washed out screen is not...
Summary: Monitor died after a few days of use thank you! I was planning on keeping it even after the problems previously mentioned mostly because in my opinion neweggs restocking fee is plain robbery . Shipped it back to newegg anyways.
Pros: 1Ms Size and look.
Cons: 1Ms doesn't give the monitor any justice, black light bleed was terrible, color was washed out even when i adjusted it through the monitor option. the only way i could get the color just right was when i calibrated it through the ATI Catalyst control center which in my book is strait out cheating...
Summary: I spent hours adjusting the settings of this monitor, but nothing relieves the eye strain caused by the poor visual performance.
Pros: Price and size
Cons: The image quality of this monitor is awful. Text is not sharp, color is either too dark or washed out, and the back light bleed through is criminal. This is by far the worst monitor I have ever used. I'm not sure how this gets such high ratings from others - maybe most only watch movies these days?
