Viewsonic VP2650wb


If your living depends on a quality color monitor, the VP2650wb deserves a hard look. There are cheaper 26” monitors on the market, but few match the performance of this one. And Viewsonic provides a 3-year parts and labor warranty, which includes...

Increase productivity with Viewsonic's 26-inch VP2650wb


I'm constantly striving to increase my productivity. Either by reading a ton of books or posts on Lifehacker, Webworkerdaily, or various other sites, I probably spend more time reading about being productive than actually being productive. Seriously...

A seriously mixed bag


NewEgg is fantastic. Despite the "no return" warning on the product, they're letting me return it after I spoke with Customer Service. The Agent was understanding and helpful. THIS is why I buy from NewEgg for all my tech needs.

Large screen, good stand (to prevent monitor from tipping), good height adjustment

This LCD takes a lot of tinkering to get the color right. Out of the box, the image is pretty bad. The biggest problem is the backlight. It is SIGNIFICANTLY different top to bottom and makes the screen vary in brightness and contrast from one area to...

Exceptional Unit


Excellent for business apps including Visual Studio and WPF Expression suite development (especially for Web / SilverLight / XBAP / Pure WPF). Bought mine from Sears (so paid extra) to have the ability to instantly return it because I wanted to test it...

Rock solid platform so far (2+ months). Perfect screen. Fast response has been great for gaming have never noticed any unacceptable ghosting or input lag. Obviously it doesn't have the absolutely-instant response of a CRT but it's as close as I've ever...

The Blue power button (back-lit acrylic slim rectangle) is incredibly bright, so much so it is distracting when gaming with the lights out, and even bleeds a bit in the bottom of the screen when super-black background. Because it's so bright I simply...

Awesome Bliss


I tried the LG new 27in, I received it....However it was blue blue blue I could not decrease the blueness. I was disappointed so I sent it back hoping the next one would be better. Was out of stock so I got lucky to choose another....I hit homerun with...

1) Color Perfect ; 2) No locked pixels ; 3) No bleed thru = Perfect Screen ; 4) I am extremely fussy about color balance and performance, this one is a winner (Top Notch) ; 5) Gaming perfect performance= Smooth Absolutely Awesome

Not one flaw, bit pricey however a perfect large monitor well worth it

VIEWSONIC 26IN WS LCD 1920X1200 4000:1


Best prices on ViewSonic Monitors at PCNation

Huge screen, bright clear display . . . gorgeous

Screen gives off quite a bit of heat, perceptible at 20 inches

Visual eye candy


You won't get all you can out of this monitor unless you use a reasonably recent and fast video card. My system was high end (P4C800ED/AX800XT) 4 years ago, but I plan to upgrade soon to an i7/4870x2 system to take full advantage of this critter.

Marvelous clarity, brightness, contrast and stability. Background light very even; no edge bleed. Very wide viewing angles. No dead pixels. Easy to install and configure. Has a simple wire management system - nice. This is my first monitor over 19",...

15" deep-18" wide 3-prong base is huge, somewhat awkward on my desk. (But maybe required to keep it from tipping over.) Built-in 4X USB hub very hard to use. (It's behind the screen on the lower left side , and the recessed sockets point down to the...

Great buy. I'm getting another one for a ridiculous 2-monitor setup, but I just wanted to test the one out first.

Extremely bright (had to drop brightness to 40% unless room is lit by daylight), sharp, beautiful

Uh, it's really big
