Summary: I upgraded from a 21 inch monitor and was thinking this is only 6 inches bigger. But what a huge difference that makes. It is great being able to put more things side-by-side when reviewing documents, or even just browsing directories. Screen is very clear, and I have it maxed out at the full 1920x1080 (1080p) with no problems. It is a very bright screen too. I currently have the brightness turned down to 20% and it is still nice and bright.
Takes some tweaking for Mac, but I'm happy overall

Summary: I bought this to give myself a larger window on the world for my older Macbook Pro. Initially, I was pretty unhappy. The resolution looked poor, text was pixelated and grainy. I was about 30 minutes from hitting the return button on Amazon. I gave it one last effort and ended up quite happy. I'll share my solve along with other comments so others (especially Mac users) might have a better experience more quickly. Pros: Price!!!
Summary: Like other reviewers, I had problems with washed out color when I first got this monitor. I played with the adjustments on the monitor itself for hours and was not able to fix the problem, and I thought I was going to have to return it. It turns out that the problem was with the way the color is processed over HDMI. I changed the digital color output on my video card from RGB to YCbCr444, and the color problem went away: now the display is beautiful.
Summary: I received this monitor yesterday and am very pleased thus far. There are many good reviews already written, so I'll add just a few points that appear to have not been covered by others (or ones that have but for which I disagree). Most important to understand is that this monitor as a matte screen, so if you're in the market for a glass-like look (like your iPhone), look elsewhere.
Summary: This is a big, beautiful screen, and is truly plug and play. I often work from home, and this screen makes reading documents and doing all the research I need to do very easy. I'm able to have all of my multiple documents, web pages, IMs etc. up with no problem. With this screen, I really have no need for a dual screen set up for work.
Summary: I have had this monitor for a little over a month now. I am very pleased with the value for the dollar. Sure, it is not an extremely high resolution monitor for the size, but it did not claim to be. I am quite happy with the performance and quality.
Summary: Having upgraded to a 24" VA2431 (non-LED) ViewSonic at the office, was enough to embark on a 27"-monitor-for-home-quest that would better its performance. After enough research, the final contenders were narrowed down to the Samsung S27A550H (LED) and the ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED; however the Samsung was nixed due to reported light bleed and stand issues, the lack of forward tilt, as well as enough users citing poorly rendered text.
Huge, gorgeous monitor, excellent colour representation, be aware no DVI port

Summary: Last week I got seriously irritated with my 20" monitor because I just couldn't fit all the windows I needed to on the screen...and I'd casually been looking for a new monitor anyway because I wanted to explore LED. The Viewsonic was my final choice, after reading tons of reviews both here and on the vendor website. The monitor arrived shortly and within 10 minutes I had it up and running in full and gorgeous 1920x1080.
