Summary: Been using it in my office as a computer monitor for years, works great, sound is good enough. It does generate more heat than I would like. But, my office is poorly ventilated, so I can't necessarily blame the tv.
Summary: Viewsonic continues to produce well crafted video products and this tv is no exception. Lots of inputs (3 HDMI) including an "S Video" that seems to be going away on other units. Picture and sound are fine the only complaint I have is that some of menu text seems to be too small.
Summary: Very hard to find 27" TVs (which I needed, 32" couldn't fit in the old entertainment center) and this was the best I could find. Make sure to take measurements before buying. Being used strictly as a TV with cable and DVD player, not a computer monitor or console monitor.
Pros: Bought it for my mother on Christmas and she loves it. - Looks beautiful in HD. - Sound is great. No humming that some other reviewers are experiencing. - Great price when compared to other 27" TVs on the market. - It's a Viewsonic--they always makes quality.
Cons: - When changing zoom modes they use a gradient color theme from light blue to white with white lettering which makes it very hard to read which zoom mode you're viewing. - The stand feels a bit flimsy but no problems with it yet.
Summary: I purchased this tv to fit into an armoire in my bedroom. It is not bad for a smaller basic HDTV and the price was right. I have only had it for about 5 weeks but so far it has seemed to be a good buy. The set up was easy, color is good and it has a nice sharp picture.
Summary: Perfect size for a bedroom wall. Great picture with beautiful colors. Sound is better than expected and surpasses most other flat-screen TVs that I've seen/heard. Would give this item five stars except for a few knit-picky issues that drive me nuts. 1.
Summary: Bought this HDTV because it was a hard to find 27" not a 26" and while Viewsonic is not known for TVs their flat monitors have generally been good products. I have measured it and it is a true 27. Nice picture and excellent side to side viewing.
Summary: I love the picture on the tv, especially HD. My complaint is that you can't see the volume and other controls, like sleep timer, because the visuals are too light to see unless you stand on top of the tv and squint. Can't understand why company make this error.
Summary: Set up well, easy to program. When dynamic contrast is set, the tv screen tends to turn toal black on very dark scenes with some little light areas. Lacks video output. Other wise the performance is good. Manual lacks details about on screen set up and adjustment.
Summary: Product shipped on time in a box that was adequate for shipping (as opposed to the reports of other reviewers - TV was packaged in it's display box, but there was enough padding to ensure safe delivery) The screen quality has proven acceptable for all manners of tasks, from gaming, to use with a...

Summary: I recently bought my family a 27" iMac and began to wonder why I had to settle with a 21" monitor for my home office PC. After some research I bought this ViewSonic 27" monitor and have been pleased. WARNING: DO NOTE USE THE INSTALLATION DISK if you have Adobe Pro installed on your PC.
