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...

In spite of its superfast response time, it's a decent but unspectacular monitor.

Good text display quality

Lack of physical adjustability

ViewSonic VX724 - 4ms 17in TFT monitor


One for the gamers here as ViewSonic hits the 4ms response time marker. But life isn't all a game.

The ViewSonic VX724 doesn’t handle colours with the finesse I demand, nor is it the most feature-rich, but it's certainly a monitor that stands out in the value stakes - especially when so many users are currently looking for an LCD with a fast...

Viewsonic - VX724


Viewsonic's VX724 is, given the current pricing climate of the 17-inch TFT screen market, not likely to be a particularly strong impulse buy. With other displays starting at under £100, the VX724's price tag of more ...

This is a superb 17-inch display that finds Viewsonic on top of its game. The price is the area that's likely to cause the most contention, but - here it comes! - you really do get what you pay for, especially for gaming and DVD movie playback.

ViewSonic VX724


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

ViewSonic VX724


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: OffRoadinFrontier (

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...
