Summary: This is the largest (screen-size), sharpest-pictured, and least expensive monitor I have ever owned. My first flat screen (@2005) had a 17" screen and cost $900. I have already recommended this monitor (and purchasing it through Walmart) to several friends and relatives.
Summary: I haven't thought much about this monitor since I started using it - looks good, plug and play, etc. Movies and videos look fine, the sound is acceptable for one person at working distance from the screen. I did need to find a wood box to elevate it about four inches.
Summary: It's an okay monitor overall. Nothing spectacular.
Pros: Looks pretty, very thin. Not a bad price for the size. Viewable angle is amazing.
Cons: No VESA support Monitor buttons to adjust source, brightness, contrast, and power are located in an awkward position and are hard to read due to their location. It's a pain to have more than 1 source connecting to this monitor. Also, received a red line down the middle of the monitor after 1 year...
All in all they're all great monitors but the ViewSonic is much easier to calibrate ...

Summary: I'm a graphics designer and photographer. Currently this monitor is my @home monitor, while at work I use 2 LG IPS231's. After color calibration with a Spyder4Elite. The ViewSonic has sRGB of 99% and AdobeRGB of 78%, while the LG is 98%/78%.
Summary: I bought this monitor after buying three similar 27" ViewSonic monitors for work. Those were more conventional monitors and about $15 cheaper, but I was impressed with their quality and how they worked with a single PC. In that case I used the DVI connection via a Dell converter.
Summary: I don't even consider using the speakers on a monitor unless I'm desperate. Yes the button placement was annoying at the start, but I've adjusted. Power button is easy to hit, just think "touch the finches".
Pros: Beautiful display. Colors and viewing angles are excellent. No dead pixels.
Cons: -Stand could be improved. -No VESA compliance.
