Summary: First off, let me say, one of the fun parts of having this monitor is the response when people see it. You'll get a lot of, "Whoa!"s etc. So let me get to the Pros and Cons: Pros: Great Size Picture pretty descent I like the Matte Look (So many monitors now are glossy) Great Response Time Works well with Computers and Xbox 360 Has a USB Hub I enjoy the "cool" color this monitor has Cons: The switching sources is a little cumbersome.
Summary: Love it. Easy to hook up and looks great. Very bright and clear. However right out of the box it already has a dead pixel. Spent about 20 minutes in chat with tech support. Very helpful but did not fix problem. However it comes with a 3 year warranty so I will be able to get a replacement. It's just a bummer that it's not perfect after spending that much on it. Would have given it 5 stars if not for the dead pixel.
Summary: Overall a terrific monitor, fast refresh rate great for PC gaming (but limited to 60Hz rather than 75Hz), has both DVI-I and D-Sub inputs with supplied cables allow me to hookup two PCs, and 1080p X 1920 native resolution 16:9 aspect ratio. I haven't tried using the built-in speakers since my systems already share a decent 2.1 (left&right + subwoofer) powered set of desktop speakers.
Summary: I recently bought this monitor as a replacement for my TV as well as extra screen space for work. I was a bit skeptical going into it due to lack of official reviews, but I decided to take the risk anyways. Long story short, it was worth the risk. This monitor is fast, I've been running as many games as I could to test this monitor, and have not noticed for one second a tear or ghost. It's been fantastic in that regard. The same goes for movies I watch on it.
Summary: I got this monitor to replace my dell 2208wfp. It was a toss up between this one and the Samsung P2770H. I chose this one because of the 1ms response time, and the greater contsrast ratio. The Samsung is 50,000:1, 1000:1...Viewsonic is 100,000:1, 1200:1. Windows 7 recognized it right away and the color out of the box was very good.
Summary: I used a 19inch Samsung HDTV Ln-1954H as a computer monitor. The desktop, icons, graphics, games- everything seemed to be extra bright. Ive used an Acer monitor, NEC, as well as a Mac and found none of those to be as bright. 2 years later, I upgraded to this Viewsonic. I had been over the search engine trying to find hands-on articles, reviews, pictures, and Ive found mixed reviews.
