ViewSonic VA2012WB 20.1" LCD Monitor

 

Huge display screen, very light-weight, and great picture quality, and built-in speakers

None at all

One of the biggest and lightest LCD monitors with the best quality available today.

ViewSonic Value Series VA2012wb Black 20.1" 8ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 600:1 Built-in Speakers

 

As long as these are being used in a general office setting these are wonderful monitors. Not recommend for graphics or video professionals.

1. Cheap ; 2. Big ; 3. Comes with DVI & VGA cable ; 4. Viewsonic quality

Not good for serious color users. Viewing angle affects the color a lot

VA2012wb

 

I bought this from costco a long time ago and it's worked faithfully through quite a few LAN parties.

Overall I love this display. There's no going back from widescreen gaming - spectating people who are using 4:3 screens reveals that I can see enemies on the screen's edge that they can't. 8ms is plenty fast for my FPS gaming. And man this thing is...

Speakers are tinny and weak, but you don't have to use them. I'm glad they're there. YOU WILL NEED A POWERFUL GRAPHICS CARD FOR GAMING! This kind of resolution makes your graphics card work harder. Look at benchmakrs

DOA

 

Going to try a 3rd one. If this one has problems I am through with the Viewsonic brand.

Don't know of any yet

First monitor was full of dead pixels, RMA'd it. The replacement's DVI port doesn't work, RMA'd it

Umm...

 

Stay away from the linux and you should be fine. It does however have some auto correct features for your analog video, and I almost don't recognize any difference because of them. Almost. That's why I still gave it a 3 though. *Sigh* What is with...

It's a great monitor for the most part. Came with no bad pixels and the high resolution is great. Big screen and a cheap price. On board processing and OSM are great but

It would seem that I have the same problem that others listed. As soon as I rebooted from linux the DVI port stopped working. It had done it to me once or twice in windows but several reboots and a driver update seemed to fix the problem. No problems...

Dead mans pixel

 

Will wait until the replacement comes to finish review.

Color is great, widescreen resolution is excellent

Arrived out the box with 10+ dead pixels, I stopped counting after that. Probably just got damaged during transport ; RMA'ing the item for a replacement

Consumer review by:

Great Buy

 

Buy it!

Monitor pixels are great, No dead pixals, screen is bright and clear. Choice of DVI or old school cabling. Resolutions are crisp. response timing is good. heck, for the price and the rebate? cant go wrong here

None, maybe it should of been a solid 21

Consumer review by:

Linux users beware!

 

From what I read, windows users and analog input only users should be fine.

analog works I guess

Don't get this monitor if you run Linux. For whatever reason after a reboot the DVI port gets fried. I know this sounds crazy but I have read dozens of other cases in forums

TN Panel

 

Decent monitor if you're not concerned with color accuracy

TN Panel, 6 bit color

Consumer review by:

Good good and a bit better.

 

I've always trusted view sonic, every monitor I've had from them has been of exelent quality.

Its big. REALLY big (atleast compared to my old 17" square monitor). Great resolution size. And a cheep(ish) price

Mine came with one stuck blue pixel on the right side
