Watch out if you want to use it as a PC monitor.

Rebecca Muir, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this TV to use as a TV and a dual monitor for my computer. The TV part is great. The problem is in the PC mode. The 1st one I got had the PC image shifted 4" up from the bottom of the screen, and the top part of the image wasn't visible. This was true when setting it up as a single monitor as well. The "starting windows" text was at the top of the screen rather than in the center and 4" of black was at the bottom. Adjusting the vertical postion didn't fix it.

  • Summary: The Viewsonic VT2430 is a 24-inch, LCD television.Compared to other LCD TVs on the market, it is inexpensive at around $390.This flat-TV is an LCD display, which is generally the best kind of flat-panel screen for viewing in brightly-lit rooms.

Don't deal with ViewSonic.

Edward W. Roddy "Ed Roddy", Amazon
2 July 2010
  • Summary: I received my ViewSonic on 6-7-10> Started to Set it up, The next morning when I went to turn it on it didn't turn on just set there and flash a picture of three birds off and on. I couldn't even turn it off only way to stop it was to unplug it/ I called VtewSonic customer support hoping that there was a reset button. The reply was that my problem was a firmware problem and the set would have to go to the ware house to be taken fixed.

Nice TV-Major Malfunctions

DashOneCharlie "DashOneCharlie", Amazon

  • Summary: I have purchased two of these, from two different vendors. Both TVs worked great for a day or two, then both had the exact same problem. The 'on/off' switch would stick, blink ominously, then remain stuck in the 'on' position. Fortunately I got refunds from both vendors and the manufacturer acknowledged that this is a common problem. Back to the drawing board!

DISAPPOINTED

Marie E. Macri "creation gal", Amazon
7 June 2010
  • Summary: Sadly -- this may not be anyone's fault except the shipper. The box was crushed when it arrived -- it should have been put into another box for shipping. I suppect it had been dropped. The on and off power button would not work. All you could get was a picture of 3 birds on the front of the screen. I contacted the manufacturer and they even sent me the "reset" instructions -- but never could get to the "menu". I really can't review the product since it didn't work.

Out of the box broken : power cycles on and off.

  • Summary: As with others, the unit I received is broken--powers on and off over and over again. The viewsonic logo appears for a moment when the unit is on. Craptacular. Worthless. Returning. Roll the dice, maybe you'll get a good unit.

Beware this tv

Alan M. Lynn, Amazon

  • Summary: Viewsonic 2430 LCD TV/Monitor. I unpacked the TV, it is a good looking TV. I did the setup and watched for about an hour. I set the sound to SRS, this may be important. I turned off the TV, when I went to turn it back on it would only show the start screen, then it would recycle endlessly. In my pre-purchase review I had not heard of this.

Amazon should black-list this TV

F. Goel "Vaibhav", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this TV for my home and what I came to know when I received this TV, Its a piece of crap !!! It only worked for 2 minutes and after that it keeps on rebooting and every time I can just see the stupid ViewSonic logo. Its not worth buying, seems this model have some firmware issues and lots of people are facing exact same issue. I am returning this TV and would advice not to buy this one.

Worked for 30 minutes

K. Byrd, Amazon

  • Summary: Plugged it in, nice picture and sound for a guest bedroom. Turned it off. Next day turned it back on...kept rebooting. Figured it was the cable box. Nope. With just the power cable plugged in kept rebooting....also noticed one stuck pixel. Called tech support. Told it had to be into service for the software to be updated. Asked if I could do this myself, negative. Nice. Viewsonic used to be "the" company for quality. Maybe this is a one off.
