Summary: for the engineering organization I help manage. 2 DOA. 9 have failed and been returned under warranty. It seems to be a weak power supply design. Initially we had good response from the RMA process but no longer. Even though they are very good when they work, I would try another brand.
Summary: This monitor is o.k., it's Viewsonic warranty support that is shoddy at best. After 10 months mine developed a line of dead pixels top to bottom. They approved my unit for "express replacement". It took a month for them to order a replacement, they kept saying they had "inventory problems".
Summary: As mentioned by some others if you view this with a lot of darker backgrounds or play games this monitor is horrible. For most web browsing and office use it is nice. It looks great out of the box and when you first boot it up, but if you play games you will be sadly disappointed.
