Durability Rockstar!

 

Great product from ViewSonic!

I bought this monitor in 2005 (11 Years) and it is still cranking away as good as the day I bought it. Great quality and excellent image. I like the matte screen that doesn't pick up every smudge on earth.

When I first received it there was one pixel towards the bottom of the screen that was out. It only appears during startup though and is fine the rest of the time. I wasn't worried about it, plus that was still back in the days when the whole...

Buy one. (or 2, or 3...)

 

I've owned since 04/06. My first LCD. When I got it I was concerned about the colors being true and ghosting. This monitor has very little problem with either. I trust it for web design and most print/proof work. Soon as I can I'm buying another... or...

Fantastic Picture, color, brightness, PRICE! ViewSonic, Very very very low ghosting, No Dead/Stuck Pixels... at all... after nearly a year!

The ONLY con is due to my work in web/print design and is more an LCD problem than just this monitor. The Colors are good but sometimes it shows too much contrast in shades of black. 99% of the time that doesn't matter anyway, and I've yet to see an...

Very Nice

 

Buy two. I did.

This is a great monitor. I have absolutely no problems with ghosting. I don't know if mine is special, but it's better than any other monitor I've seen. I play BF2 a lot and it looks great. This monitor also has a handy button called auto adjustment....

It does have a drawback though. It only has analog input. That's it though.

I love this thing

 

Have owned 2 of these that run on a dual monitor setup with an X800 XT since fall 2005 and they are still working great. The picture is awesome, great especially while gaming. Actually thinking about buying a third and going 3 monitor setup.

Great Response time and nice resolution for an LCD. They are perfect.

None yet.

ViewSonic Value Series VA902b Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 550:1

 

All in all I am very happy with this product. It beats any crt and I like the way the stand is designed.

I have had this monitor for 7 months now. There are no dead pixels. It is great for gaming, the picture is clear and sharp

I am not too happy with the controls. There is no sharpness control and the picture is fuzzy at lower resolutions. So I have to put up with the smaller icons on the desktop
