ViewSonic VA720

 

Clean, attractive design; PC and Mac compatible.

Poor image quality; short warranty period; mediocre dead-pixel policy; limited adjustability.

ViewSonic's VA720 doesnt have the features, the connections, or the adjustability options to make up for its disappointing image quality.

Poor picture quality, read the review

 

Nice design

I have to agree with CNET's reviewer, the picture quality is not what it should be. I to tried tweaking the settings and could not get a better picture. Colors were distorted, and it was hard to read even black type on a white background

I've bought CHEAP but BAD one.

 

Looks nice when it sits in a living room or family room

3 months after the one-year warranty the backlight failed. An authorized repair shop would charge $185 for labor and more $$$ for parts. I've decided to dump it and be away from ViewSonic. Samsung of my another LCD monitor has worked fine for 2.5+ year t

why such a bad review from cnet?

 

not a bunch of extra crap to boost up the price. swivel? tv tuner? who cares? no worries of the hinge wearing out either. color isn't as bad as cnet says it is

the only major thing bad is you get some shadows if you're not looking directly at the screen. get a service plan from an actual store like best buy or circuit city if you want a solid warranty plan. i bet a girl at cnet reviewed this monitor. it's a ve
