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 of owning it. Took tech support about 2 months to replace it under warranty. Also had to pay for shipping to send it back.
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. But I went upscale a bit and bought this model for home office use. This monitor runs from a fairly new MacBookPro via the HDMI port, and runs very well. I have had no problems with it.
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.
Summary: For a company to not even make an effort to try and sort out technical, compatibility issues they themselves might potentially be involved in is unforgivable. NO MORE VIEWSONIC for me, and certainly no more VIEWSONIC at work. I've been quite loyal to VIEWSONIC for quite a long time, own their monitors for well over 16 years now. There are just too many competitors out there for Viewsonic to be self-serving.
Pros: inexpensive, that's pretty much it, decent display but nothing that tops competition. I've used the monitor for over a year without issues on different graphics card, but had issues with INTEL HD 4000s, and NVidia GTX 900s series. T
Cons: Horrible tech support, this monitor has major compatibility issues, will not work with many HDMI display ports on laptops, or Nvidia GTX 900 series. You will have to go to DVI for it to work. Viewsonic tech support says tough luck and you have to deal with it. So money down the drain. If you go online, there are many reports of the same issues, but VIEWSONIC refuses to acknowledge it, or do anything to fix their own firmware issues, relating to VESA standards HDCP HDC...
An excellent 27" display, bright, clear and compact.

Summary: When the backlight in my 22" Samsung monitor failed, I knew I had to find a replacement quickly. I wanted a larger monitor (the rest of my monitors are 24" with LED backlights.) I looked at both the specifications and reviews for many monitors, and chose this one due to it's size, versatility, price, and the number of positive reviews. It is "bright," the output of the monitor is definitely higher than any other I've owned.
Summary: I have never owned an IPS monitor before and at the $ amount this was selling, i purchased 2 and dont regret it. I love how they have a very small bezel and the richness in color is a wow factor. going into this purchase I knew it does not swivel and wish it did so I could connect 3 standing tall to play games on. Regardless, I think this is a nice setup. but everynow and then I feel the touch buttons should be lower on the stand.
Summary: Picture is great, no complaints. But, no way to mount this on a wall , or on something solid( like an articulated monitor arm) is just plain stupid. What does it matter if the panel is 1/2: thick if the non-removable base sticks out 4" to the rear and 2" to the front? If there has to be a base then it should large and heavy enough to keep the monitor from tipping over, this one is not.
Summary: This is one nice monitor clear, high resolution, frameless, has an perfect picture. Viewsonic VX2770SMH-LED, Glad I bought it, I would recommend for games or computer. You don't need HDMI cable one comes with it.
