Summary: I have two of these monitors. They work. Color is great. I am running them with a FX8150 Sabertooth system with an XFX6950 video card. No issues, have used them with an older single core AMD 64 bit chip and Abit AV8 motherboard with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Worked very well with that system. The new Sabertooth system with the XFX 6950 does even better. I did not buy my monitors from Amazon.
Like other reviewers have now mentioned - my monitor turned green

Summary: Never really had a problem and really enjoyed the monitor until out of the blue - it turned green. No adjustments could be made to remedy the discoloration. I'm going to be trying to send back. I loved the price and the 10 months of service I got out of it, but it's a little problematic to have to return it. I guess my rating could be adjusted down, depending on customer service on the return.
Summary: I chose this large 27-inch ViewSonic VX2739WM HD Monitor because I wanted to finally see the small print and see more details on each page I viewed. I have had 2 other ViewSonic Monitors and was please with them, so it was natural that I continued to stick with a proven product manufacture. I am now getting full HD with a refresh rate that is an incredible 1 ms (2 ms is the standard for high end monitors, and 5 ms is the average for quality monitors.
Summary: I really like this monitor. The picture quality and resolution are the best in my experience. I'm not a gamer, but just do the usual computer functions. I had hoped to be able to listen to music and one of the reasons I bought this model was the SRS sound feature. The sound produced is less than adequate for my purposes, so I've gone to external (Bose) speakers and use the MSI sound app to adjust the sound.
Summary: I have very bad macular degeneration. I require magnification of about 8x on the screen to be able to see. I am 95 years old. This monitor allows me to email, do on-line banking, read the Times, Post and Miami Herald, Time magazine on line. Best of all, to enjoy my family's photographs, from Cuba to Bolivia to Africa and all over the world, I can enjoy photos of my kids, grand-kids, and great grandkids.
Summary: I was about to go pick up this monitor at Fry's Electronics when I decided to check Amazon's price. It was thirty dollars less at Amazon, plus no tax or shipping. I bought the monitor for my husband, and he absolutely loves it! I have to say that the size is impressive. I am happy with this monitor so far, having owned it about a month.
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: Purchased Viewsonic VX2739WM for a new computer build. It was delivered within 12 days, as advertised, with no problems. Pictures and video are sharp with excellent color. No problems with response time or anything major. Monitor appearance is also excellent. Only two minor issues with the monitor. The power cord is only loosely held in the monitor. I have tried two power cords and both disconnect with minor shaking.
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.
