Best Short Depth you could find up through 1999, and still Great today. (Updated 2/24/02)

 

I purchased the Viewsonic PS790 because I knew I wanted a 19" monitor, but I truly needed the short depth feature. My computer desk at home barely fit my 14" monitor from 1993. Measuring some new 17" monitors, I realized that anything bigger would...

Primarily, the short depth. Also, good picture, and easy controls. Very reliable

Slight 1/16" curvature at top and bottom middle of the picture

ViewSonic PS790 (White) 19 inch CRT Monitor

 

I've bought 3 19" monitors in the past year, including the Viewsonic PF790, and the SONY G400, and another one from Optiquest. This is my fourth one, and I've got to say that it has excellent price/performance. While not a flat screen like the Sony or...

Excellent picture quality, vivid color, and small profile

Screen not flat like some other monitors on the market

Great Picture

 

I love this monitor. I replaced my old 15" with this 19" model and my eyes have thanked me ever since.

Dot pitch, visual quality, high refresh rates, bright, pleasing to look at

Slight moire patterns which appear on the sides

A great consumer and up model

 

When I bought a new computer (a Progen 333Mh-z) I knew that I had to get a new monitor. For the first couple months I went half blind having to look at the screen with a seven year old fourteen inch Magnavox. I wanted something big, at least 19"....

Huge and crisp viewing screen

HEAVY

ViewSonic PS790 (White) 19 inch CRT Monitor

 

I got this monitor last Christmas (1999) after drooling for almost a year. I needed a short depth monitor as far back as 1996 when ViewSonic first introduced the 17" short depth unit, but after calling ViewSonic they told me they were working on a...

Short-Depth, Picture Quality

ViewSonic takes the cake

 

The View Sonic ps790 is another great product added to their fine line of quality products. This monitor gives colors a little better vibrancy then the competitors. The real nice thing about View Sonic is that it does not use the over hyped Tintatron...

Best Picture, Watch for hours with ease

pricy

There are better one's out there...

 

Short depth tube, Good On-Screen Menu

Moire, Ghosting, Poor Quality

Consumer review by:

Great bang for the buck!

 

This monitor is a great buy. I noticed on the front page of this review it had the estimated street price at around $550. This is quite deceiving. I paid just over $400 SHIPPED for mine. And that is for brand new, no refurb.

Competitive pricing, HUGE screen, great tech support

Too heavy..but then all 19" ; monitors are
