5 out of 5 eggsgreat TV

Pros: Excellent picture & color. Difficult to find 1080p in this size of TV. Has all inputs and adjustments that I hoped for.

Cons: Internal speakers aren't great but I didn't really expect them to be.

Other Thoughts: It is a smaller TV but I needed one this small to fit in the space I have. I am definitely happy with it and would recommend it to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat TV.

Pros: Bought it for my mother on Christmas and she loves it.
- Looks beautiful in HD.
- Sound is great. No humming that some other reviewers are experiencing.
- Great price when compared to other 27" TVs on the market.
- It's a Viewsonic--they always makes quality.

Cons: - When changing zoom modes they use a gradient color theme from light blue to white with white lettering which makes it very hard to read which zoom mode you're viewing.

- The stand feels a bit flimsy but no problems with it yet.

Other Thoughts: Very hard to find 27" TVs (which I needed, 32" couldn't fit in the old entertainment center) and this was the best I could find. Make sure to take measurements before buying.

Being used strictly as a TV with cable and DVD player, not a computer monitor or console monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: The monitor looks great. Number of inputs.

Cons: RMA on the first monitor. New monitor same problems. No sound. Loud audible hum from backlight when choosing anything but "high" setting, not very adjustable. Staying on the dynamic setting to avoid noise. Unable to get speakers to work for a second time.

Other Thoughts: Newegg has been great through this process. Not a problem with RMA or communications.
For this being my first ViewSonic purchase I'm not happy. I've decided to stay away from any further purchase from ViewSonic, even if it's on sale. I took a gamble on a sale price and I paid for it... you get what you pay for...
This monitor looks great and the number of inputs are nice. Getting two monitors with the same problems? You can tell ViewSonic didn't do any type of quality control or inspected their final product. Very disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Overscan option built into the unit so its very compatible with using it as a PC monitor (which I am doing). You can name the inputs whatever you want (some other TV manufacturers still haven't learned that their customers WANT to do this!). No dead pixels in my unit. The LCD panel itself is quite nice. No ghosting or banding of blacks in images/movies. I really do enjoy the image quality. No light bleed either. The monitor is uniformly bright from the center to all the edges.

Cons: Audible hum from backlight when choosing anything but "high" setting. Backlight is not very adjustable, you get 4 settings and all but the high settings hum. I seem to have settled on "medium" as my preferred setting. Going to see if I can get used to the hum. Speakers are awful. They sound hollow and muddled.

Other Thoughts: I also own the venerable Viewsonic N2750W and, although its 7 years old, it is still a better model. The quality of the plastics, the matte finish, the speakers, the inclusion of PIP & POP, the firmware's built in sleep behavior... all of these features are missing from the VT2730. The only thing that is better in the VT2730 is the inclusion of HDMI and 1080P resolution support. If I could just transplant the HDMI/1080P support from the VT2730 to the N2750W... that would be ideal.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good so far..

Pros: Picture
Many inputs
Many outputs

Cons: Menu text font
Built in Sound

Other Thoughts: Had this for a couple weeks. Picture is great. The unit has many choices for input and output (video and audio). This is lacking on many new TVs, so that is great. The sound from the built-in speakers is only fair (very common on TVs today). I use the analog audio out for better sound through an audio system. The only other issue is the tiny menu text that you can not see at a distance, as well as the gradient text background on some on screen displays that make it very hard to see. Overall very happy with the purchase. I caught this item at a good price (249) that was only good for a couple days as this is usually priced too high and found it hard to find a good 27 inch tv.
