Summary: I bought 2 of these. Wonderfully BIG so much better than a 27inch. One started causing problems so I did some research. Turns out they have a power supply problem among everything. I count it fortunate given the other reviews i have found that it lasted 5 years.
Good while it's lasted...but starting to fade...(in PC mode)

Summary: I got this big screen LCD monitor in 2007 and now 4 plus years into everyday usage it's showing some signs of breakage. I get snow when I switch to the vivid mode and the power button is malfunctioning. Tech sites say it's a cheap faulty capacitor.
Summary: Though this is the first lcd i bought from VIEWSONIC; its not the first monitor that i've bought from the company. My Tube monitor worked great for a long time, so when i decided to upgrade to a bigger screen i trusted the brand and went with the 28" LCD.
Excerpt: Ich besitze den 27,8" Monitor jetzt seit 3 Wochen, und ich musste folgendes feststellen: VGA-D-Sub Bild: sehr gut, HDMI-Bild: Schrift wird doppelt gezeigt trotz Schärfeeinstellung(auf 100) und trotz Windows Umstellung (Kantenglättung). Keine Verbesserung des Bildes!
