ViewSonic VX710 LCD monitor


The bottom bezel houses five silver, bar-shape buttons--one power button, two arrow buttons to navigate the onscreen menu (OSM), one button to engage and exit the OSM, and one button to select submenus. We normally don't get excited about the onscreen...

Moderately priced; decent design; digital and analog connections; attractive and easy-to-use onscreen menu.

Mediocre image quality; limited adjustability; unimpressive video performance.

This nicely priced 17-inch LCD from a reputable manufacturer is a good choice for home use, but for gamers and businesspeople, its image quality and adjustability leave a lot to be desired.

"One year max"


I have an office with lots of these monitors. I have not had a any Viewsonic last longer then one year. That means if I have 24 monitors I am replacing 2 a month. Its time for me to find a better brand.

Good price and "looks" to be quality.

does not last long

"One of the best for sharp text!"


If you use your computer primarily for working on text documents and reading text on the web, this is one of the best monitors on the market. I have used, purchased, and looked at numerous LCD monitors, and haven't found any that display text as sharp...

Sharp text, easy to use menu, great price

"Great Picture, User-Friendly"


I purchased this monitor on sale, but would have purchased it even if it weren't on sale. Like another owner-reviewer said above, I don't know what's with CNet's reviewer. I love this monitor. It's clear, sharp, bright, colors look great and text is nic

I haven't found any yet
