ViewSonic VP720b

Great Monitor


I shopped around, this was a bargain plus the warranty is great. I purchased this for a dentist office to give employees online technical updates. They did not want seperate speakers so the output of this monitor was critical. It turned out to be...

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
