No Frills Beyond What You See On Screen


I got this monitor during a much-publicized deal from Microsoft where they'd give you $400 toward the purchase of a Viewsonic monitor if you signed up with MSN. For some reason the length of contract clause didn't apply in California where I live, so...

G790 Good Monitor, but Tech Support Sucks


Our company uses several Viewsonic monitors (E771 17", G790 19", and G810 21" monitors), and the quality is excellent as far as viewing things on screen. Occasionally, we get a lemon, and it has to be repaired.

good display

lousy tech support
