VA2026W Failures

 

I puchased quite a few of these monitors for our company...lately they are dropping like flies. I had 2 go dead today that have the exact same manufacture date 08-08-2007. Seems like they don't make them to hold up any longer.

Lightweight, Vivid colors, Easy setup

ViewSonic VA2626wm

 

Editors' Note: There was a mistake made with the original calculation of this monitor's rating. The mistake has now been fixed, and the overall star rating has been adjusted to reflect the fix. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Practical OSD layout; speakers have a good bass to treble balance

Washed-out colors in games and movies; no rotation or screen height adjustment; bad lower viewing angle; lack of OSD options

The ViewSonic VA2626 is a basic 26-inch LCD that has neither the features nor performance to merit a recommendation. You can find better monitors for less.

VA2026W

 

ViewSonic's VA2026w 20-inch wide-screen monitor offers a simple and refined design. It's nearly all matte black, save for a narrow band of silver at the bottom that houses the on-screen display (OSD) controls. The round, ridged base offers only a tilt...

Aesthetically pleasing cabinet design Simple cable manager

So-so graphics and text performance Tilt-only adjustment

The OSD menu is fairly basic and simple to use.  Buttons labeled 1 and 2, which have a different function depending on the context of the OSD, help a user can get through the monitor setting options without much aid from the user manual

ViewSonic VA2026w LCD monitor

 

The ViewSonic VA2026w isn't a bad display, but other models in its category offer better viewing angles and lower price tags.

Relatively inexpensive; very good text legibility

No height adjustment; limited viewing angle

The VA2026wsports a thin bezel design in black, with silver accents. It features a fairly large circular base that offers little in terms of flexibility. There is no height adjustment and no ability to pivot or swivel, though you can tilt the display...

Viewsonic VA2226w 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor Review

 

Viewsonic has a value monitor that comes in at 22 inches and a price point that should get most gamers to finally move on from the 15-19 inch displays. Read our review to get the highs and lows of moving up in the world!

Image nice and Sharp. Doesnt work very well thoguh.

 

The product is great but as i stated above i don't think buying this product would be best. Im not sure if this is just windows XP, or just my monitor, but it seems like all the monitors from Viewsonic are defects because i called three people and...

The Look of The Monitor itself is great. Slick and clean. The Quality of the picture is very remarkable along with the nce wide-screen look

After awhile the boot screen will disappear as normal, and the monitor will give a message saying 'Out of Range' meaning, if you have extended warranty, you can fix it. If not you can buy a new monitor or you have to run windows in safe mode

ViewSonic VA2026w

 

Being a previous owner of a ViewSonic Monitor, I didn't consider buying anything other than another ViewSonic when I recently upgraded my computer. I chose the VA2026W 20" Widescreen LCD Monitor and it has exceeded my expectations regarding HD images,...

Brilliant HD images, extreme clarity and amazing color

great price performance point for a workstation

 

The factory configuration was terrible, colors were weird, and hard on the eyes until I used nvidia-settings software that came with my quadro, to tweak in the brightness, contrast, gamma and digital vibe. Since then I have been very happy with the...

The color, brightness, and uniformity across the screen area. are excellent The integrated speakers are also a huge plus in workstation setting where you don't want the extra clutter of detached speakers

I really have nothing negative to say

Never ViewSonic Again

 

It would seem to me, the power buttons are an issue with View Sonics. This monitor comes with a 3yr warranty, but we have purchased another brand from Newegg yesterday to replace the ViewSonic...I will never buy another product from them, and the sad...

We purchased 2 ViewSonic 28" monitors from Newegg, in July 2007. One was perfect out of the box, the other well we had to RMA it and Newegg was wonderful as usual about replacing it. This should have sent up a signal, but ... Newegg could not replace...

With in a few months, mine started change colors, I would get a red haze , blue haze, all kinds of different things going on. Finally it went completely out. I contacted ViewSonic, who gave me a RMA number to return it. Cost to return: $120.00, I...

Mixed on this one

 

I did not buy this from Newegg, but I wanted to warn people about this model. The model I actually have is the VA1912wb but basically the same monitor as this one. I haven't been able to send this for warranty repair because I can't find the proof of...

This monitor worked great for almost exactly 3 years. The picture was solid. No dead pixels. No bleeding around the edges. I like to use a monitor for at least 5 years

Within a few weeks of warranty expiration, the monitor developed lightly visible horizontal bans that moved from bottom to top constantly. It is very annoying and essentially ruins any attempt to enjoy graphics and distorts color. I was just about to...
