2 out of 5 eggsImage Retention Issues

Pros: Was inexpensive, fairly bright, big screen.

Cons: I've had this monitor for a couple of years now and it has horrible image retention issues. The whole top left quadrant of the screen burns in with whatever is on the desktop (firefox, putty, whatever) after only a short time.

Other Thoughts: Trying the normal methods like white background to reset the "stuck" pixels doesn't have much of an effect and it comes back quite quickly. I will not be buying again from ViewSonic as I have dozens of other LCDs that do not have this problem.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice, I like it!

Pros: Colorful, fast, no dead pixels, and... does it really need to be said again?... BIG.

Cons: The screen gets pretty hot after a while, but I've never had a screen this big so I don't know if thats normal or not. The reason it got four stars is that when there is a lot of white on the screen, it will flicker randomly, as in not because of the refresh rate. It reminds me of a light bulb that's not escrewed in tightly enough, so when you tap it, it flickers for a second. That said, it seems to be happening less and less as the months pass. Still makes surfing the internet annoying though.

Other Thoughts: The flickering is really not that annoying, and I was reluctant to take a star off. It really is a good screen.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Big

Pros: Big. Did I say Big? It's Big. I easily displaced a dual monitor setup with this single one and could not be happier. Got this from Newegg when it came out and have been very happy with its operation. Looks fantastic when connected via DVI.

Cons: This monitor is a lot warmer than other LCDs that I have owned. It makes me wonder if that will have an affect over the lifetime of the monitor, but I have not seen any ill results so far.

5 out of 5 eggsThe price is right

Pros: Great price, fast shipping, shipped in perfect condition (no dead/stuck pixils), 0 noticible lag in gaming (running Aoc on high and looks perfect). Does exactly what I purchased it for.

Cons: its not free

Other Thoughts: I've read several complaints about view angles and the lack of stand movement, but i view it straight on from about 3' and have absolutly no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: No dead pixels, got it off "a popular online auction site" for "a little bit cheaper" which translates to INCREDIBLE value for a 1920x1200 native resolution, especially since newegg's price is low as it is! The design is very aesthetically pleasing, and the coloring looks great when properly configured. I've never owned a monitor this big until now, but really 24" is HUGE and you wouldn't need anything bigger.

Cons: The default color scheme is a little off, too washed out and green, but with a little adjustment, looks fine. It's a bit thick and my webcam doesn't quite fit on top well.

Other Thoughts: Overall an amazing product for the price, highly recommended!

2 out of 5 eggsehhh

Pros: Very nice size, built in speakers, monitor is very bright

Cons: First time I got this monitor the backlight had a short and would randomly flicker when it was off. round two has been better but makes a high pitched whine when off or in idol mode. On both the screen is too bright for my tast and washed out, blacks look more like light gray.

Other Thoughts: This has been my first viewsonic purchase and it will probibly be my last. We use them at work and they are fine, but the bang for you buck just does not seem to be there. Overall I am disappointed because of the excellent rep that viewsonic has.

4 out of 5 eggsQ241wb wide screen life changer

Pros: If you are considering a new monitor and have not sat in front of a wide screen, this one will change your life.

This monitor is big, bright, and crisp. Unless you are concerned about colors (pro graphics) or having a USB port on your monitor then go with this one.

Cons: The monitor exhibits a very strange phenom. If you stand a foot away from the monitor and look directly down on it, everything has a green tint to it. If you do the same and look from the bottom up everything has a brown/red hue to it. When you look straight on and move your head up and down the same thing happens but not as drastic.

So long as you aren't shaking your head around, you don't notice it though, but people that do graphics work may find this annoying.

The stand is a joke. You'll likely need to get a mounting arm although I am making due.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is the brightest monitor I have seen. I am software developer and had three ViewSonic VX924 19inch monitors and swapped one out for the Q241wb to see if I'd like the wide screen. I felt (and still do) that the VX924 is an awesome monitor. The Q241wb blows it out of the water in size, bright, and crisp.
