"Very Nice LCD"on by i.angelx2
Pros Crisp text! Great for gaming, I'm running CS:S right now with no ghosting at all! Looks very big considering I upgraded from a 15"!
Cons When I first got this monitor I was unhappy because whenever I set the resolution very high the text would look bold and fady in some places. However, all I had to do was press the auto adjust key!
Summary This is a great LCD! I love getting on my computer because everything looks so much better! For some reason everything looks a lot more 3D! Great monitor and I highly recommend it if you want a nice monitor for a lower price! Get this monitor if you can't afford an LG 19"!
Pros Had it 5 years now and ZERO problems. Displays everything I need, including HD video. Fantastic displays with a quality video card.
Cons None at this time.
Summary Great picture. Lasts forever.
"Awesome purchase!"on by viper1403
Pros Excellent Colors.
Cons i have not found any cons yet.
Summary Buy this monitor without second thought.....its good for day to day work as well as for high end games too.
I am using it as a split screen with my dell laptop.
Overall i am very satisfied with my purchase.
Sometimes i feel i should have gone for a bigger monitor.
Pros Resolution, Auto Adjust
Cons One Dead Pixel
Summary I bought this monitor in January of 2006, and as is the laws with computers; the longer one waits the cheaper the price will be. When I bought it, the monitor was a great deal. The resolution is amazing, as well as the clarity.
I use this monitor as a secondary to my laptop (Toshiba a45-s250). I use the laptop screen as the primary and the View Sonic as the Secondary. Having the availability to use one monitor as a word document and the second for Internet surfing/research is extremely invaluable. I am currently a college student and this monitor is just phenomenal. The main reason I gave this product review of a nine as oppose to a ten, is simply, there will always be better monitors and better buys. Overall this monitor will only get cheaper and still remain a great buy. Simply put, if you want a good solid monitor that will treat you well as a primary or secondary, this is the way to go. I would recommend this monitor to anyone who uses their computer on a daily basis for as little or as much as eight or more hours a day. This monitor can with stand the abuse.
Lastly, on a departing note, when I received the monitor, via shipping, it did come with one dead pixel, but for the energy it would take to replace it and being a poor college student, I will wait it out. Other then the latter statement, its still a great monitor, good luck future shoppers!
Pros Color, size, quality, crisp text and warranty
Cons A little too bright, blacks not quite deep enough
Summary I purchased this monitor upon the other user comments on this web site. With the current $50 rebate and the sale price of $279, at Fry's, I figured that I couldn't go wrong. After taking it out of the box and hooking it up, I found that (like the others before me) I had to hit the auto adjust to bring the text into the correct settings. I have had, up until now, been using a 17" CRT (15.5" working area). Working with PhotoShop CS2 on a 19" LCD is a joy. As of yet I have not had any dead pixels, but I have had the unit only a few weeks. I'll update this review if things change.
