Summary: Every other time you turn on this TV the speakers buzz (extremely loudly!) and the on-screen display doesn't work. Sometimes the volume won't work. You have to turn this TV on and off to get it to work again. I set up an RMA online but ViewSonic never replied to my request. That was months ago.
Summary: I purchased this TV in August, and it completely died in late-February. Viewsonic's customer support is a joke, but if you call enough times, you'll find the one helpful person who works there.
Pros: Good price Looks good (while it works)
Cons: Does not fit standard TV mounts Stops turning on after a few months Terrible warranty service and customer support
Summary: Same problem as others who have this TV (from other reviews/ forums)- When you turn on the TV, you get an incredibly loud speaker-damaging buzz that won't go away unless you unplug the set. The remote won't work until the TV has been on for about a minute.
Summary: Great for movies/games with lots of color contrast. other reviews claimed the remote is 'really long' but it's no longer than any of my other ones. If you have any older DVD's that are 'widescreen' but are actually encoded as fullscreen the TV cannot zoom to fix this, so I recommend buying a DVD...
Pros: HDMI, built-in hd tuner, VGA (great for watching videos from my laptop), fairly high brightness, no dead or stuck pixels after 6 months.
Cons: As with all cheaper LCD's, smooth color gradients have visible color steps (think underwater scenes in u571, or the grayish skies in Gladiator). This is only noticeable if you're looking for it though, not bad enough to draw your attention from the movie. Remote/sensor not very powerful for me. N...
Pros: Good TV and surprisingly good for comp monitor. Fuzzy w/o HD
Cons: Refuses to turn on about 40% of the time after being off over night and I have to unplug and replug it back in. Sometimes when I turn it on it has green lines all over and i have to turn it off and on again.
Pros: Looks great with the Xbox 360, and PC using VGA out, the wii looks as good as a wii can look too! The remote works great for me, i programmed my MCE remote to turn the tv on/off and how to use the volume control in about 10seconds. It even took a wiimote to the screen, and the paint from the wiim...
Summary: I gave it a 5 eggs because they don't offer 4 and a half. I would have deducted the half egg for the remote issue. Just remember, this is not a $3000 display, but it is a great place to start.
Pros: price After reading reviews I got skeptical. But most reviewers were nitpicking.
Cons: displaying deep blacks is this displays weakness but not a fault. this displays biggest weakness is my dishpvr remote won't control the television.
