ViewSonic VA712


Just over a month back we had reviewed a 17" LCD screen from ViewSonic. We were quite impressed with the performance of that product. Today, let us take a look at another 17" from the same stable.

Nice 17" LCD


Fast shipment. Newegg rocks!

Great LCD for the price. Very bright display, clean design. Very compact on my desktop. Zero dead pixels upon arrival and a snap to set up

The base tilt adjustment leaves a little to be desired

Shipping Cost When Item is Bad


pay shipping twice and that raised my overall cost

This monitor is working great and my grandson love it

The first monitor was bad and the second monitor is working great and my grandson love it. My cost went up because I had to pay shipping twice and that raised my overall cost

No dead pixels


Bright, colorful, price. No dead pixles, which was a relief seeing that my last LCD had one in the upper right

Controls aren't as well thought-out as my Polyview S17E, and the stand stucks

Great Monitor!


Shipping was so fast it made my head spin. Ordered 31OCT and received 02Nov! That was from NJ all the way up here to Northern New Hampshire! Super job Newegg!!

Light weight, great picture, no dead pixels and comes with DVI cable. Bought this monitor for my wife to replace her 6 year old gateway 17" CRT. She loves it

Great monitor, clear. Built in speakers are great space savers

Case seems kind of thin, flimsy
