Summary: Whatever you do, you must listen to me about this. I bought this tv brand new and it lasted me 1 total year. It broke down twice-first time I needed to have a filter changed and the second time it needed a mother/main board which my tv tech could not order because it was out of stock. Hence, it was basically dead. Trust me on this one-DO NOT buy viewsonic products-do yourself a favor and buy only name brand products-like samsung, sony, lg,panasonic, toshiba.
Summary: This TV worked great as a TV and computer monitor UNTIL.... I activated Surround Sound. I got the dreaded startup loop other people have described. I called ViewSonic customer service twice and both times the technicians acted clueless about this problem being connected to Surround Sound. It's clear that ViewSonic wants to ignore the problem because if they admitted the issue is caused by normal operation of the TV they would have to re-call the product.
Summary: Nice initial video quality. Audio array inadequate in size and tinny in sound. Video display went south (horizontal lines, artifacts) inside of 5 months. Sent it in for warranty repair/replacement over a month ago (at my shipping expense). No response yet.
Summary: I purchased two of these TVs. One to give to my grandson, and one to put in my newly remodeled bathroom. The one in the bathroom worked well for about two weeks. Then it began to turn itself off and on. It doesn't stay off long, but it is very annoying. I saw reviews here stating there are cycling problems when SRS is enabled, but I don't have SRS enabled, so it is not that.
Summary: I received the TV and gave it as a gift to my sister. A couple days later I went over to check out the TV only to notice it had Dead Pixels! She had already thrown away the box so I cant return it. Amazon was great with their price and timely delivery. to bad ViewSonic has such a lousy quality control and allows defective TV's to be sold to their customers. This is probably the last TV I buy Online.
Summary: TV was shipped at a reasonable time and was shipped in a secure box. It was as advertized and is a good buy for the money. The only negative is that there was no instruction book, but it was easy to figure out. A good buy .
Summary: The product arrived in great condition. We hooked it up and it has a great picture and lots of features. The only down side is the sound is awful. I'm hoping hooking it up to the surround sound will help.
Summary: I purchased this TV primarily to use as a monitor with my laptop--nothing like side by side monitors for super productivity! It works terrific for doing Word documents and graphics projects. As a TV, the picture is amazingly clear. The remote is easy to use. It arrived promptly and in perfect packaging. I'm totally pleased with this product.
