ViewSonic VP201s

 

The VP201s is aggressively priced for a 20-inch LCD, but the less-than-perfect display performance makes it less appealing than some of its 20-inch competitors.

ViewSonic VP201b

 

ViewSonic VP201b

Very thin bezel; highly adjustable; sharp picture with excellent contrast; includes USB 2.0 hub; HDTV compatible.

The image quality, while good, isn't the best of its class.

This high-end LCD gets an A for design, features, and adjustability, but its image quality falls a smidge short for the price.

DVI cables

It does not do my dishes ... LOL

replacement works perfectly

 

The manufacturer couldn't repair this model (failed back light is my guess)during the summer and sent a brand new one to replace the vp201b. I would recommend the warranty that Viewsonic offers to quick loan you one while the other one is being...

Some boot difficulties

 

This is the finest LCD monitor I have ever had for visual quality. But it has a quirk I haven't yet figured out. The first one simply wouldn't produce an image after four reboots of my machine. I RMA'd it and NewEgg had a new one at my door within...

ViewSonic VP201B Black 20.1" 16ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 400:1

 

I got the silver framed version of this. A purchase I will never regret. This display rules with everything my 800xl throws at it and every person I know who lays eyes on it wants one.

RE: Not good enough for games

 

Try using the DVI port instead of the analog. Makes a huge difference.

Not good at all for gaming!

 

Ok, for all the people saying there is no ghosting, I wonder if you've been playing pc games for more than a couple months..The fact is, there is ghosting, and it is very noticable in every game I've tested it on. For all you people who have been...
