Summary: I kept this monitor even though it has a serious power supply connection problem. It works...but don't touch the monitor or it will shut off at any time. I did not want to go through the pain of returning a large monitor so I kept it (which was probable a huge mistake) ALK
Summary: Buy this only if you are a lucky person. I have to go through many troubles to get this to work. I bought this monitor a little bit more than a week ago, and the monitor has power but couldn't detect any signal (VGA and HDMI) both not work for my computer, and doesn't work for my xbox as well. Then i asked for a replacement, and got my 2nd monitor. This time is even worse, the monitor doesn't power up, tried wiggling the power cable and still no good.
Summary: I purchased this monitor and ran into nothing but problems with the image quality when it was connected to an early 2011 MacBook Pro 13" - until I switched from a "mini-Display Port to HDMI" cable to a "mini-display port to D-SUB" cable. At first I thought the monitor was not compatible with the MacBook Pro. That is the case when it comes to the HDMI cable.
Summary: Overall the monitor performs as needed. Resolution and aspect ratio is good. The dynamic contrast mode is not subtle though and shifts brightness depending upon what is displayed(the trade off for energy efficiency). This would not a be a good photographic editing monitor for this reason not to mention if you disable dynamic contrast the range is not very wide. Out of the box it is way too bright as many Viewsonic monitors are.
Cons: подсветка пятнами ( не равномерный белый и издец не ровный черный) цветопередача посредственная если воткнуть наушники или колонки через монитор звук ужасен встроенные колонки звучат достаточно нормально (информативно но не красиово.)
