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.

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

This 19” Monitor Will Fit Where You Think Only a 17” or Less Would.


This monitor was not my original choice, but I'm glad I got it. Where I work, a co-worker needed a new monitor to replace his tiny 6 year old, 15” screen monitor that was just about to go out. Since he deals with large spreadsheets all day, I wanted...

Short depth. Not much more expensive than a regular sized 19” ; monitor

Text could be sharper

Great deal


I purchased this monitor used and have been thrilled since unpacking it. The monitor has a large footprint, but it is a 19 inch monitor. I have been pleased by the monitor and have no real complaints. It qualifies as a no frills monitor because it...

Nice picture quality, inexpensive

Good monitor in price category.


Bright, clear, and fairly crisp display.

Controls are akward, edges of screen are hard to align.

Good monitor in price category.


I'm not going to get into the specifications, if you want them, go to Viewsonic's webpage. What I will go into is my experience with the monitor.

Bright, clear, and fairly crisp display

Controls are akward, edges of screen are hard to align

A pixel of disappointment


Small footprint for such a huge monitor

Just can't cut it at 1280X1024, funky controls
