ViewSonic VP720b


This 17-incher displays better graphics than text.

Great Monitor!


I dont use the speakers, so I can't tell you about them. It does seem a little bright, but I am still messing with the settings. The controls are on the side, which is a little strange and takes getting use to, but awesome monitor.

Awesome monitor! This is my second LCD. I just built a gaming sysetm. I have the wifes system hooked up to the Acer AL1715 and it is good, but this is better. I am using the DVI connector. Very good monitor
