ViewSonic VA720 review


ViewSonic VA720

Clean, attractive design; PC and Mac compatible.

Crisp, clear...I was unlucky though


This monitor was a gift from my grandma which I'm happy about. The monitor is very clear and colors are good. The screen isn't blurry at all like some LCD monitors out there and reduces eye strain a lot. The resolution is very big at 1280x1024 which ...
