Summary: I've had this a while and it works every other week I get my hopes up because its working and then it wont even turn on for a week. Something is very wrong with this monitor...beware! Not a great investment avoid at all costs.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Summary: This monitor arrived BROKEN out of the box. The sellers ad said "new in box" The box the monter arived in was un-damaged. The unit inside the box was un-damaged The box had all of the right cables except the power cable had white paint spots on it.
