ViewSonic VG700b


Low price; solid service and support; easy to adjust; built-in speakers.

Fair image quality; subpar stuck-pixel policy; limited vertical-tilt range; no horizontal swivel.

The VG700b's affordable price and solid support package will appeal to the SOHO market, but its image quality lags.

No dead pixels, works great now but when I first set it up from the box the letters flickered. The flickering stopped after about 8 hours. I guesss it was from being shipped.
