Summary: I wanted a hdtv to double as computer monitor on daughter's bedroom desk. Setup was a breeze, you don't even have to install drivers on the PC, the monitor self-adjusted. The picture is outstanding for the price. I can understand people's comments on the sound especially if it was in a large room. For a bedroom however, and on tweaking the audio controls, I am perfectly satisfied. Also make sure that the tv has enough connections to satisfy your needs.
Summary: i took advantage of the [...]and this was def worth it! it took literally 10 minutes to set up and is perfect for my bedroom. the sound is a tinny but the screen resolution is great. i would reccomend highly for the price.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Simple Controls
Summary: I use this TV in my dorm room and it works excellent with my MacBook Pro. I went to [...] and bought a re-packaged DVI-HDMI cable for [$] to connect the two. I haven't had any problems with the audio as some others may be having. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars rather than 5 is because it came out of the box with a bad pixel which I feel should not come from a company like Viewsonic.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Simple Controls
Summary: Since the N2230W has average (at best) sound quality, Viewsonic *should* provide an audio-out jack so its customers could attach and enjoy independent speakers. For the price, though, provides good TV images for a *small* studio apt. or bedroom.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Resolution, Simple Controls
Summary: If you plan to use this as a stand-alone TV be aware that the audio is poor. There are no "Audio Out" connections to allow for external speakers to be added. Unless you connect it thru a surround-sound system, the quality of the sound is weak and tinny. I have been a fan of the ViewSonic line of products for a long time so, it was with disappointment that I have to write this review and return the unit.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
Summary: I started with an idea to purchase a 22" LCD monitor for my macbook. A friend suggested why not a LCD HDTV just by paying a coupla $$$ more and it just happened. A LCD monitor = $220 (inclv. shipping n tax).A LCD HDTV = [$] all inclusive (PRICELESS is what I'd say!!)[...] satisfactory product. does what it says!!All in all a very good buy for the listed price!!
