NO DVI, Blown pixel


I bought a Q20wb about 6 months ago, and I love it. I didn't realize the Q201wb was nearly the same screen, except lacking the DVI connector. My fault for not being more careful. The box was poorly packed -- the base stand was not where it was supposed...


Not cheap enough, $20 more will get you something better with DVI ; Came with 1 blown pixel right in the middle of the screen. Blown open bright blue. The area around the pixel is even a little washed out/white looking

10 monitors all worked perfectly


Excellent product. I came to newegg today to purchase another one for the office.

We've purchased 10 or 12 of these monitors at the office and they all worked perfectly. I was so pleased with the quality for the price that I advised my mother to buy one as well

Height of the stand is not adjustable

Rebate Caution


Even with a slight shading around lighter-weight characters viewed on this monitor, quality & clarity are fine for our home computer / casual use. When the first monitor arrived with dead pixels, newegg repaired/replaced it promptly. Pixels are good on...

However, during the monitor replacement process, I "aged out" of the Viewsonic rebate deadline. Viewsonic refused my request to honor the rebate even though the filing delay was caused by their defective pixels, not my delay in mailing. Be aware that...

suggestion for NeeNee


NeeNee (driver problem with Vista) try updating your video drivers from the video chipset manufacturer. software etc from monitor companies are always worthless, and not meant for anything. it's your video chipset/card drivers that are the important...

dunno, I don't have it, but do have a Viewsonic 19" CRT that is beautiful, and has worked excellent for the last 3 yrs. (rating is for viewsonic as a whole, becauase I do know that support and customer service is poor, though monitor quality is great)

Everything I wanted except...


This is a great monitor for the price! Clean crisp lines

The bright blue power LED. It is located at the bottom in the very middle. It is very distracting to have the light shining so bright right at the edge of your peripheral vision. This is compounded when you are viewing something near the bottom of the...

Did not get my reabte money


Viewsonic stole my rebate money, not a very honest company.


Did not get my reabte payment. I have a agrement with Viewsonic regarding I submit everything (rebate form, bar code, original reciept). They said they only get my rebate form, no bar code and receipt in the letter, and turn me down. Do not trust on...

No support


Don't buy it if you are using or going to use Vista.

Good price; excellent resolution; high value for the price; no dead pixels

NO SUPPORT FROM VIEWSONIC AT ALL!!!!Ignored my emails. Software and drivers don't work with Vista.(Not compatable.) Generic drivers don't work either (from the Viewsonic website).Resolution can't be set at the proper pixels (1650 X 1080) because Vista...

very Nice Monitor


I would very highly recommend this monitor in fact I am buying another one right now for my laptop.

Price, less than $200 with the rebate, fantastic. Resolution is perfect for normal use and the monitor size, text is very erdable and I dont have great eyesight. very good response time and black to white contrast ratios, installs with ease. 2 inputs...

there is some light bleed off all the lamps (this is when you show all black on the screen and can still see the light from the lamps most all lcds have this is just the matter of how obvious it is but this is what you get for the price and should be...
