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
7 May 2012
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: 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: The screen was excellent. I'm not going to comment about the quality of the picture because 'at the time I bought this screen', it was considered as the BEST gaming screen in many specialists websites. There is only one dissapointing thing about the ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED, it's annoying when I try to change the volume of the speakers. I use the screen with a PS3 and every time I need to change the volume, I have to press many buttons!
