Mind-blowing display, minor negatives (capacitive buttons), sucky speakers (of course)

Summary: Let's get the con that no one cares about out of the way - the speakers are worthless. But we already know that, don't we? I've got real speakers pumping out the beautiful music, and only used the built-in speakers a couple times just to hear what they are about. This display is absolutely gorgeous.
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.
Summary: I purchased this same model for myself in December 2013. This one was for my wife, so she would have a wider screen to open apps side-by-side. She is very pleased. We use it primarily for business and web browsing, so I can not comment for gamers.
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,...
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.
