ViewSonic VX724

 

The $329 ViewSonic VX724 introduces the company's new Amplified Impulse technology, which overdrives the LCD panel's electronics to produce faster transitions between shades of gray. In theory, accelerated gray-to-gray transitions reduce ghosting and...

Nice-looking text

Tilt is the only physical adjustment

I liked the look of the VX724's stand, a hollowed-out, matte-silver rectangle that sets off the black bezel. I was disappointed, however, that it provided only tilt adjustment, the minimum for ergonomics and usefulness. The VX724's most pleasing...

Excellent monitor. I did not have any dead or stuck pixels. Have had good luck with Viewsonic in past. Comes with DVI and Analog video cables! (A great deal considering DVI cables can cost $20-40.)

great contrast. Very fast response time. inexpensive compared to other monitors of equivalent value

monitor does not have a height adjustment

I choose this LCD because I have a Geforce 6800 GT installed on my PC. This LCD accepts both DVI and analog input and comes with both DVI and analog cables. Some LCDs have DVI capability but the DVI cable is not included. I have found no dead pixels. I...

Great visual quality and refresh rate

Tilt adjustment only

ViewSonic VX724

 

Went with this model because of the 4ms response and it has worked well for gaming. I'm not saying that a lesser response-time LCD would be a problem for gamers, just thought I'd hedge my bets. This one indeed does well playing games and I can't see...

Fast refresh works great for gaming, brightness and colors are all good, no dead pixels

no height adjustment on the stand

Great Monitor

 

Keep up the great work newegg!

Great monitor. Bought it after reading great reviews on newegg to replace/upgrade 15" Pixo. Outstanding delivery times and outstanding products from newegg, my only hardware supplier

No cons on this great monitor

Consumer review by:

Not bad at all.

 

This is my first LCD, so if some ghosting is normal, then my rating should be a 5-star! but anyway, in Windows, and only in Windows (with the latest drivers), i do notice ghosting, mainly on the Internet Explorer buttons. i'm sure my colors have a lot...

Crystal clear, crisp image. Sharp. Sleek design, nice cable management. Games run excellent

Ghosting in windows! read below

Poor Warranty Service

 

Very clear displays. Only 1 (level 3 - red always on) bad pixel between 3 new monitors

Out of box failure. Beware: Warranty is handled by Viewsonic directly (not Newegg). Customer service rep handled RMA incorrectly. +3 weeks and I still do not have replacement. Conflicting explainations from customer service. No ability to talk with...

ViewSonic X Series VX724 Black-Silver 17" 3ms gray-to-gray (avg.); 6ms white-black-white (typ) LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 500:1

 

nice bright monitor

was unable to register the product online because of the old expiration date offered which would have voided my warantee immediately-no response from viewsonic-no help from newegg

Consumer review by:

Dead pixel. Manufacture only replaces at 5+ dead pixels

 

Dead pixel policies are just a way to get around sticking to the warranties. Put a little blue dot on your screen and see waht you think after a few minutes of game play.

Great picture ; Great contrast ; Awesome response

LCD had 1 dead pixel. Viewsonic will only replace after 5 dead pixels because under 5 is considered acceptable. I do not consider 1 acceptable

EXCELLENT!! while it works....

 

Great deal, hope you have better luck with yours than i did with mine.

Insane visual quality, for both gaming and media editing. Refreshrate is very nice and the 17" size makes it great for toting to LAN parties, NO DEAD PIXELS

After about 2 months of ownership, it seemed to just... DIE... I is some sort of a problem with the back light. It will be on for a fraction of a second, everything crystal clear like new, but then it just all goes dark, nothing at all, only the green...
