Pros: This is an addendum to my previous post.
Cons: Another thing with these short little things is that for ergonomics sake you have to elevate them.
You're supposed to be looking straight ahead at monitor screens, not bending your neck all the time.
I had to elevate the Viewsonic 5.5 inches so the screen is level with my eyes.
There's no way you can put this on the same desktop level as the keyboard.
I used the Steve Job biography book to help now that I'm done reading it--and I don't even have an Apple computer.
Pros: My 19" I-Inc LCD monitor died after 5 years. Only paid $99 for it and it was a great monitor.
After researching this seemed to be within my price comfort.
Good price. Technically OK--I wanted built-in speakers and capability to handle higher resolutions. NewEgg shipped it very quickly.
Cons: I am an old-timer and used to SQUARE monitors. So even though this is a 20" monitor, it has less viewable area than my old I-Inc 19" (181" versus 161"). I suppose it's another way manufacturers can trick us by telling us we're getting more when they're actually giving us less. (Remeber the old 16 oz food packets that have been reduced to 13.5 oz.??)
In that regard I wish Viewsonic would give up a few inches on the side and add it to the top. The LCD viewable is only 9.5 inches high. While it's good for movie watching, it's terrible for browsing the Internet and working on documents because you have to keep on scrolling down to see more of the document.
Other Thoughts: Sorry, I miss the older 4:3 format displays. . I know these are good for games and video but I also work on the computer from time to time and would like to see more.
Maybe if I wanted to spend $150 or more I should have bought a HDTV and used it for the computer
