Compromised Quality Some aspects of the G810's quality looked below average, some a little above average, and some just plain average. What that means for a user is legible but uncrisp text (light text on a dark background is much harder to read than...

Low price; light weight.

Noticeable curvature at the corners; awkward controls; no BNC connectors.

Undemanding users who want a big display will like the G810, but professional users should look elsewhere.

"40% failure rate"

 

We purchased 15 G810's last summer. So far we have returned 5 of them and a 6th is going back today. At low resolutions there is some kind of interference. We noticed this during reboot. Squiggly black lines running all through the display. I will not...

"I've had it for 6 years and still views great..."

 

I've had my viewsonic for 6 years and it still views great. I'll be sad if it dies. The colors of my 21" Viewsonic G 810 are true and very accurate. I'm so use to the monitor that if it does die, I'll probably get another one if they're still around.

"Fine Monitor"

 

I've used this monitor for about 6 months with no problems. The corners are a little fuzzy but can't beet the price, and at 1600x1200 how much time are you going to spend in the corners? Works great with XP Pro as a two headed system.

"I like it - sharp focus to edge of screen, great color."

 

Purchased a two year old used monitor at local computer store for $299. The G810 replaced an old 21 inch NEC which had lost its focus. This monitor has perfect focus with no distortion problems of any kind noted. Text looks great. There is a slight...

The quality on this monitor is just so poor. I'm not talking about high definition graphics either, basic web pages do not look right on this. I have to code with this thing and it makes it all such a pain. Can't wait to get rid of it.
