Planned Obsolescence?


I think our three-year warranty has two more weeks, so I'm going to try to get an exchange. Mighty coincidental timing of this failure, though...

This monitor seemed reasonably functional for three years. Our only real gripe was that the image is clipped a little behind the bezel

After almost three years, the display turned PINK overnight. We tried adjusting the color, checking the VGA cable, unplugging and replugging the power, etc. Nothing helped. Among the previous 9 reviews, I saw another user whose monitor also had drastic...

Worthy Monitor


I purchased this monitor for a specific purpose: gaming. It's done its job well. a almost-insivible 'burn-in' line is near the bottom left corner(I left VLC open for a long time...over a week, forgot to turn the monitor off while i was away), so i dont...

High native resolution relative to screen area. great blacks/color representation. pretty good brightness

a bit small by todays standards

Excellent Monitors

Cost, brightness, value

nice monitor


i bought this monitor for a friend of mine. i was concerned about the viewing area being large enough, because he doesn't have the best eye sight. he has had no problem viewing the screen at 1024x768.

good color. no dead/stuck pixels. good response time with nvidia gforce fx 5200 video card and 256mb on the card

Always Reliable...


I highly recommend this series to anyone who needs an inexpensive and trustworthy monitor for home or business that is not going to give out in a couple years. This is one of the most popular monitors in business offices today, and rightfully so, but...

Nice workhorse monitor for a reasonable price


Can't think of a better deal. Solid construction, and it's not ostentatious.

Clear, sharp, and good color. I use two of them for photo editing and graphic design work. Once color-calibrated (ALL monitors need to be calibrated), it works great

Good LCD for the price


If your looking for an entry level lcd and prefer fullscreen to widescreen, this was made for you

Everything you would expect from a standard lcd

no DVI, but that's not a big deal

Great monitor


I bought this monitor for my mom a few months ago and it's still clear and detailed as ever.I would buy Viewsonic brand monitors before I would others.

Low cost

Great Value


Overall a great monitor for any price.

Bought 2 of these for my kids systems. Arrived very well packed with the base needing to be attached. Hooked both up via VGA and have had no problems. Kids love the size (they had 14" CRTs) and picture. LCD has a matte finish and not the glossy cover...

Would be nice if it had a height adjustment
