GS790 19in/18.0v 26mm 1600x1200 76hz Short Depth

 

WHAT'S HOT: The 19-inch GS790 excelled at rendering graphics. Colors shone brightly, particularly in photos. With a very short depth of only 16.2 inches, it occupies much less desktop space than any other monitor its size. And at $285, the GS790 is a...

Vibrant colors in photos and on Web pages make the GS790 a good choice for graphics pros.

I thought this monitor was an excellent value. The images are bright and crisp. Text can be a bit blurry as PCWorld already mentioned. I haven't encountered any of the problems that others above have listed. I compared this monitor to several...

ViewSonic GS790 19in/18.0v 26mm 1600x1200 76hz Short Depth

 

The Viewsonic GS790 lured me in because of its short depth characteristics. This means it takes up much less room on a desktop, comparable to say a 15" monitor. That is indeed a very good feature to have. The display itself is very bright, with vibrant...

Does not take up much room, very bright colors

Lacking somewhat in sharpness, some distortion present

With a footprint comparable to most 15" monitors, the ViewSonic short depth GS790 maximizes workspace and productivity. This 19" monitor have superior focus and vivid, realistic colors. A 0.22mm horizontal fine dot pitch and a maximum flicker-free...

ViewSonic GS790 19in/18.0v 26mm 1600x1200 76hz Short Depth

 

I purchased this unit because PC World rated it very highly. They must have got a special unit, because the one I received was junk. It had sever geometry distortions. In the upper left region of the display the horizon lines are bent downward. I tried...

Lightweight compared to older 19" monitors, which make it easier to through out the window :)

lack of Quality

Bought 3 of these for work all 3 have distortion problems. Looking at the top the the picture all 3 bow down in the center. There are no adjustments to correct this. Also 1 has developed focus problems. It will get blurry for several minutes then clear...

To buy refurbished or not to buy refurbished.. this may answer that question.

 

First, let's start at the beginning. Wanting to dazzle my family and friends by size, like any true Texan would, I originally purchased a refurbished Hitachi 21' monitor. When I got it home and plugged it in the picture seemed perfect. Well, except...

It's superior in color, clarity, and style. SOLD! Wrap it up and ship it home

I didn't get one sooner & It's not a 21'. ; 10
