Summary: I have read reviews about a flaw of this monitor for not having adjustable height stand, and thus resulting in unclear view if a person is not seated properly. This is not true. It makes up for it with tilt back and forth. I was able to tilt it enough forward that I do not notice any loss of contrast, color, or anything. I had to adjust it since I sit lower and colors are very crisp all around.
Summary: Bought this to match an existing 19" LCD, also Viewsonic, so I could have a dual monitor system. Its big and bright. Resolution is excellent for drafting, photo work, just about anything. (Note: I'm not a "gamer", so I can't comment on its suitability for that work) This model has interfaces for either VGA or DVI formats. Stand is a little taller than I would like; puts the bottom edge of the display screen proper at 5 3/4 inches from the desktop.
