4 out of 5 eggspoor vertical viewing angle.

Pros: it works.

Cons: My girlfriend raises the computer chair because she is short. So if I sit down to use it, the screen has a dingy brown tint to it. If I drop the chair then it clears up. Very poor viewing angle for the 5" height to make such a difference.

4 out of 5 eggsDVI cable not included

Pros: The IPS technology has good color, deep black, and excellent off-axis viewing angles. The LED backlighting is uniform, with no bright or dark zones. It has 100 mm VESA mounting holes, the neck of the stand is removable, and the connectors face downward to allow for flush wall-mounting. The price is decent.

Cons: The stand is a little too short and there is no height adjustment, but you can make phonebooks useful again by putting one or more of them under the monitor to elevate it to a more ergonomic height. I was planning to use the VESA mount anyway, so the stand did not matter to me. The egregious sin of this monitor is that it includes a VGA cable but not a DVI cable. Unless you buy a DVI cable separately or happen to have a spare on hand, those 2 million state of the art IPS pixels with their good color, deep black, and excellent off-axis viewing angles will be displaying a blurry analog mess using a interface standard created almost 30 years ago that is now obsolete but still lingers because it is the lowest common denominator.

Other Thoughts: Apparently ViewSonic thought it was a good business decision to achieve a lower price point on this monitor by omitting a key ingredient that is required in order to use the monitor to its full potential.

4 out of 5 eggsViewSonic Monitor

Pros: - IPS
- 1080p
- Good Price
- Feels Solid

Cons: - Monitor Stand is Short
- Bezel is a Fingerprint Magnet

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace an old ViewSonic monitor. This is a good monitor with good viewing angles, 1080p resolution, and a very solid stand. At the price, it is a good deal. While solid, the monitor stand is very short. If you have an under-desk keyboard or a monitor stand, this monitor would be fine, but if you use your keyboard on the same surface that your monitor sits, the stand is not tall enough. My other complaint is that the bezel, while nice and shiny (although prone to glare in the wrong light) collects fingerprints like no other. The old monitor that this replaced had the same bezel which was very easy to get fingerprints on as well, so I have gotten used to it.

Overall, it is a solid monitor that I would have no problem buying again.

4 out of 5 eggsNice but too much bezel glare

Pros: Its an IPS monitor for a low price, at the perfect screen size for a desktop. $130 price couldn't be beat.

Cons: I bought this monitor because it was anti-glare, not a glossy monitor screen. If i buy an anti-glare monitor, then that means I don't want glare! So why did they make the bezel a practical mirror. The bezel is extremely reflective and distracting from the mirror like reflections. That is why i dropped an egg.

Other Thoughts: The screen is IPS and looks good for the most part. I am used to $800 IPS monitors at work but couldn't afford them at home, so I bought this, but you cant tell the screen isn't as good as those expensive monitors, but for $130 its good for the price. I lowered the default contrast and that made it better. The mirror like bezel is terrible and I almost wouldn't recommend this monitor simply because of it. The glares/reflections from the bezel are distracting and hard on the eyes. But this is also for my particular location in that I have some windows in the same room. Now knowing this, I wouldn't buy this monitor again and would search for an anti-glare IPS with a matching non-shiny bezel.
