5 out of 5 eggsGood Professional Monitor

Pros: Beautiful monitor, great response time. I use these monitors all day in a office setting for computer programming and architecture. No dead pixels. Like the USB ports on the monitors, unexpected bonus. Using DVI cables out of the box with no problems.

Cons: Not completely intuitive to install a mount kit (had to "pull" plastic cover that didn't look like a cover). Didn't come with the manual that's available on ViewSonic's page (would have been nice). Monitor is a bit too quick to cycle VGA-DVI-Standby on reboot, finicky with ability to see BIOS screen on startup.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these monitors connected to the same pc. Running Intellization z Pro using Quadro FX700. Monitors are mounted using quad monitor desk stand (Ergo DS100).

1 out of 5 eggsBad to Worse

Pros: Excellent display.

Cons: When it works. Now out for the third replacement (4th monitor) since purchase April 2006. Purchased Express Exchange. Difficult to execute with cust service no's 1 and 2. This time was told no parts available and no units avialble for exchange. Sent it to Viewsonic anyway.

Other Thoughts: Failures 1 and 2 were heat related. Smell of hot electronics followed in a few days by failure. No 3 failure to initialize. RMA'd 1950 Pro to ASUS, retail box returned. Still won't boot. Tested similar LCD and no boot problems. Extensive on line test ViewSonic tech and same conclusion. What a mess! An expensive one at that.

4 out of 5 eggsGets most jobs done

Pros: No ghosting whatsoever, gorgeous picture, not much in the way of vertical height for this size screen.

Cons: When the monitor works, it's awesome, but often times (such as a cold boot of the computer) it will lose signal. As a matter of fact, it loses signal sometimes when a black screen is shown for too long. While it could be trying to pick the signal back up, it instead decides to tell you that it lost the signal while still displaying nothing, even though the sound of what you were doing is still playing.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor, as long as you don't need to do constant re-installs of operating systems, which require a lot of reboots.

5 out of 5 eggsInstalled today

Pros: Mine shipped with a dvi-d cable, contrary the experience of others.
No dead pixels.
Lightning fast shipment.

Cons: Flickered at first, which scared me. All seems fine now.

Other Thoughts: awaiting spyder2 for calibration, but images look sweet in photoshop. Had to turn down the brightness and contrast until my eyes get used to the transition from a $100 17" CRT.
Driving with 6600GT.

1 out of 5 eggsUnable to reliably receive signal

Pros: Color and resolution are great.

Cons: From the time I first installed the VP2030b, the monitor would erratically receive a signal. I have since returned it for repair and then returned it for a new one (they sent a used one) and still have a problem. If I reboot, reset or install a new video driver on my computer,this monitor will not recognize a signal where 3 other monitors including a Viewsonic VG2030M do not have a problem.

Other Thoughts: Think about a different monitor

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Everything.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Viewsonic, I usually stick with NEC, Samsung, and Sony. I'm impressed! Not only is this monitor a great value, it's also very high quality. I give it 5 eggs for running with the big boys and coming in a couple hundred bucks cheaper. Thanks Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic monitor!

Pros: Excellent picture quality. No motion blur evident. No dead pixels. Interpolates resolutions below 1600x1200 very well. Wide range of adjustability for height/angle/etc.

Cons: Footprint is somewhat large for a LCD. Interpolating very low resloutions (1024x768 and below) produces a blurry image.

Other Thoughts: Problems mentioned with DVI in previous reviews were not apparent, supplied cable worked perfectly in DVI-D mode.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME picture, but some connection issues

Pros: Best picture I have ever seen on an LCD. Bar none. Easy to set up. Very adjustable. No dead pixels.

Cons: Had to get a new DVI-D cable (I bought a Belkin) to cure some issues with the BIOS screen not displaying.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing monitor

Pros: The picture quality from this monitor is amazing, response time is good in FPS games, I do not notice any ghosting at all.

Cons: The DVI cable came with the monitor sucks, I had to pick up an DVI-D cable from (local electronic store whose name is censored by newegg)...
