Great Monitor but

 

Someone over at Viewsonic drop the ball with the driver support. I try both Unsigned and Signed Vista 64 driver with a build date of 7/08/08.

Having both DVI and VGA is nice. The picture looks really good under DVI

DVI + Vista 64 bit = no worky worky. I don't understand why this thing doesn't come up under DVI with Vista, I spent 8 hour on the phone with Viewsonic Tech Support. But if you use a DVI to VGA adapter it work just fine

Good Professional Monitor

 

I have 4 of these monitors connected to the same pc. Running Intellization z Pro using Quadro FX700. Monitors are mounted using quad monitor desk stand (Ergo DS100).

Beautiful monitor, great response time. I use these monitors all day in a office setting for computer programming and architecture. No dead pixels. Like the USB ports on the monitors, unexpected bonus. Using DVI cables out of the box with no problems

Not completely intuitive to install a mount kit (had to "pull" plastic cover that didn't look like a cover). Didn't come with the manual that's available on ViewSonic's page (would have been nice). Monitor is a bit too quick to cycle VGA-DVI-Standby on...

Bad to Worse

 

Failures 1 and 2 were heat related. Smell of hot electronics followed in a few days by failure. No 3 failure to initialize. RMA'd 1950 Pro to ASUS, retail box returned. Still won't boot. Tested similar LCD and no boot problems. Extensive on line test...

Excellent display

When it works. Now out for the third replacement (4th monitor) since purchase April 2006. Purchased Express Exchange. Difficult to execute with cust service no's 1 and 2. This time was told no parts available and no units avialble for exchange. Sent it...

Gets most jobs done

 

Great monitor, as long as you don't need to do constant re-installs of operating systems, which require a lot of reboots.

No ghosting whatsoever, gorgeous picture, not much in the way of vertical height for this size screen

When the monitor works, it's awesome, but often times (such as a cold boot of the computer) it will lose signal. As a matter of fact, it loses signal sometimes when a black screen is shown for too long. While it could be trying to pick the signal back...

Fantastic monitor!

 

Excellent picture quality.

Footprint is somewhat large for a LCD.

Excellent 20" LCD Monitor

 

This monitor blows away ANYTHING else I've seen in this price range.

Can't seem to find any.

Unable to reliably receive signal

 

Color and resolution are great.

From the time I first installed the VP2030b, the monitor would erratically receive a signal.
