Great for game consoles and computers (as long as you know how to set it up).

Summary: I initially bought this monitor for my xbox360 last year. The super low input lag makes it great for being competitive in multiplayer FPS games like the Call Of Duty series. It's a great monitor for gaming. I purchased a 11" macbook air a few months ago. Initially I purchased a HDMI thunderbolt adapter and hooked it up and was not impressed because of overscan, desktop extended outside the viewport of the monitor.
Summary: No disrespect to the person who posted the first review but if they did 5 minutes of research they would know why the following happens. "Color accuracy is below average Color reproduction is washed out Overly bright and saturated contrast Poor black level" All you have to do is go to your nvidia control panel, adjust desktop colour settings and change the default setting of "RGB" to "YCbCr444", hit apply and viola, rich beautiful colours and blacks, contrast etc...
Pros: good overall. amazing colours, read my explanation below
Cons: no display port input but it's an older monitor so what do you expect? they could have put a dvi instead of the useless vga also.
Summary: I bought this as a secondary monitor for my laptop. It is full HD, LED, and the colors are great. No dead pixels. It does connect with vga and 2 hdmi. No speakers and no remote, but who needs usually crappy built in speakers and a remote you wind up losing. It has been well worth the $300.00 I paid for it. Also, it has an external power supply, and doesn't build up excessive internal heat.
Summary: have always bought viewsonic moniters, and will continue to do so.. the price is always right, the quality is always the highest. The moniter is sleek, bright, vibrant and everything they say it is on the description. There is no screen adjusting either, no need to move the screen the left or right, up or down, it will automatically do it, and do it perfectly.
Summary: Over the years, my monitors have steadily grown larger, and more advanced. I do my homework and carefully research stuff - which is where Amazon is incredibly helpful..(most of the time). I decided to graduate to a 27 inch LED, and after agonizing over MANY contenders, the VX2753 emerged the winner. Do yourself a favor and pay attention: I've already done the work for you. Stop squandering your time and benefit from my obsessive compulsive, anal retentive nature.
Summary: I was going to give this a 3 star and possibly return it, until I started messing around with the settings of the actual monitor. I did a couple things through hue and such, but it was still just slightly blurry. I know you can get this when you get a monitor this large, but Viewsonic was such a reputable company and it got good reviews in the past. You must change your input from AV to PC. The sharpness will amaze you.
