ViewSonic VA702


Do you need to increase the space on your desktop? Then why not change your bulky CRT monitor for a slim line LCD screen.

Works great for me!


My only regret is that I didn't pay approximately $60 more to get the 19-inch VA902B. I already have a VA902B, which is black,t not the 2-tone silver and black version like this one, and that one is great, just like this model!

No problems when I got mine... No dead pixels

Absolutely none

Ok Display


I Bought a 20.1 inch widescreen from view sonic on the same order and it is b-e-a-utiful. What ever happened to FEDEX??? Remember NO DVI connector, it only likes 1280 x 1024 @ 60mhz if you go to 70 mhz you cannot read the text at all.

Nice looks, has an integrated stand. UPS actually Delivered something within the 3 day time frame

It has one DEAD pixel ; I would never buy this cheap of a monitor again!!!!!! I gave it two stars and not one due to looks of the unit

Viewsonic 17" LCD


I am going to buy an other one soon for dual monitors at home.

Excelent quality, I work with dual 19" viewsonic monitors and the 17" one that i have at home blows them away. The pictures are very sharp and flawless. It is a really simple plug and play type of monitor. Highly recomended

None that I can think of. Oh wait I know, its to thin and the pictures are too perfect

Nice picture. Easy to adjust monitor settings (color, brightness, etc.)

No height adjusment, but not a big deal for me

working a budget to build a coparable system to the box store this LCD beats anything I seen prepackaged at the box stores and my friends!!

I ordered this to clear desk space and have been so impressed I ordered a second to donate to This is an amazing monitor for the price

Takes up too little space, now I have paper work all over my desk instead of a CRT
