Viewsonic VX2835WM

William K Homan, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: Looked great initially. After a couple of years, the monitor would stay on when you would try to turn it off or when it went into suspend mode. I had to unplug the monitor to turn it off. Then the on/off switch broke. Research shows others with a similar problem. Conclusion: bad power supply design.

Its ok, if you needed for two years

  • Summary: The only bad thing about these monitors is power supply. They are designed to fail after two years. The capacitors attached to the power supply never heat up and burn out. After that you need to by a new monitor. This is only know too happened to the View Sonic’s 2835s

Not a good monitor at all

G. Cwynar "Compugeek", Amazon
22 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this monitor from a local "Big Box" store. It worked well for about one year. However, It gave off a lot of "heat" from the screen. It developed an issue with the power supply. To turn it back on (after sleep or power off) I had to physically unplug and replug power cord at wall or back.

Not reliable, not a great picture either

Christopher Cebelenski, Amazon
26 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought one of these about 6 months ago as a replacement for another monitor that was unreliable. From the beginning this one wasn't much better. Right away I had problems with it recognizing the computer and refusing to display or switch out of standby.

Not worth the money

V. Rosu, Amazon
19 February 2008
  • Summary: First of all it should be noted that it is a monitor, not a computer monitor. It works better as a monitor for your dvd player or 2nd generation console (using its component video inputs) rather than a serious computer monitor. The VGA input is very poor: computer images are ghosted and faded.
