Summary: This monitor has great picture quality. I've used VGA and it is still excellent quality. My brother experienced some problems with the screen flashing pink, but I think it's actually a video card problem, and not the monitor.
Summary: I spent several weeks researching and evaluating different LCD monitors to replace my 19' Sony Trinitron CPD400 CRT. (Grew tired of moving around with the 75 pound mammoth!) I use my computer extensively for programming, and occasionally for web surfing, word processing, spread sheets and DVD viewing. The specifications of most LCDs are pretty close to one another, so I decided to go with the one that was easiest on my eyes.
Summary: I have never owned an LCD display but have wanted one for the past year once the technology seemed to be up to the task of making a large display at a reasonable price. I bought the Viewsonic VX800 because of my experience with Viewsonic monitors (always has been good) and the glowing reviews on several sites. I did a lot of internet research and went to three computer stores before I purchased the Viewsonic from Amazon.
Summary: I got my vx800 from Dell. No dead pixels at all. I use DVI with it. Ths image quality is awesome and the response time is good (no problem with gaming or seeing DVDs.... though still slower than my SONY Trinitron CRT if you compared them together with some monitor test program.) The view angle is wide enough. This is a great LCD monitor.
Summary: I bought the VX800 back in November 2002. After 5+ months of usage, it's been a great monitor. Married to a dual processor Macintosh w/ a 64MB video card, this monitor has performed flawlessly. No shadows, not one bad pixel - not one bad thing to say about the quality of the monitor. But..... a couple things worth mentioning. First, the speakers that come with this monitor are barely adequate. Good for basic sound but that's about it.
Summary: I purchased this monitor 3 months ago and have absolutely loved it. In reference to the review referring to compatability issues with ATI video cards, I would like to mention that I have used this monitor with both a lower end ATI 32 mg analog video card and encountered no problems whatsoever, and I have recently upgraded to a new ATI Radeon 9000 128mg video card and have encountered no problems. This monitor has worked flawlessly for me, and I love it.
Summary: This monitor has the cleanest and most crisp display of any monitor that I have ever owned. I am a graphics designer so I've always owned high end CRTs. This is my first LCD and I'm very pleased with my purchase. Amazon offers it at a great price and their customer service is always superior. I've had this monitor for about 4 months and couldn't be happier with it.
Summary: I recently purchased a Viewsonic VX800 LCD. The monitor itself is great. The probelm is that there is a compatibility issue with ATI video cards. If you have an ATI video card,the display has horizontal lines of snow and is unusable anytime you restart. I have called Viewsonic tech support and they acknowledge the problem but have no answers on a fix. Do not buy this product if you have an ATI video card.
Summary: I recently bought this monitor and i choose it because the reviews from a games website and for the features that the viewsonic website say about it, i chosed this monitors exclusively to play my pc games and i tested with FIFA football 2003 and a mmorpg Dark age of Camelot. First FiFa looks great, the architecture of the stadiums looks beautiful as the players in the court besides the anmation and all, with Dark age of Camelot the experiece is outstanding i adjuste the...
Summary: I am very impressed with this monitor. When I bought it (to replace an 18" CRT which blew up), the Amazon description said the contrast ratio was 600:1 - turns out it's 450:1 - but hey, it's still good. Backlighting seems a little uneven but that may be a tweak I am yet to discover. I have tried it with both its analog and digital video inputs, and I suggest you don't bother with an LCD monitor unless you can connect digitally - the difference in clarity is amazing, esp...
