Pros: Color, Bright, no glare, excellent contrast, wide view angle, swivel/adjustable stand, basic design (simple, not flashy)
Cons: Not slim, but I think the narrow bezel and basic design makes up for it
Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor after extensive review because I had previously purchased two of the 20" 'deal of the day' monitors - planning for a dual display. I set up just one of the other monitors and was so frustrated with poor contrast and dingy colors and glare that I sent both back (even suffered the restocking fee)
I looked into LCD panel technology and this Viewsonic model had better true contrast than most and uses "in plane switching" or IPS with the result of a wide viewing angle, excellent colors and contrast. I ended up spending more on this 23" monitor than on 2 of the 20 inchers combined, and though I would still like a dual set-up, I couldn't be happier. The 23 inches still affords a lot of real estate for multiple windows/programs.
It is not as warm as my previous 19" LCD, thanks to LED, and I usually use the econo mode so that it is less harsh in a dark room, but still brightens in the middle of the day.
Pros: LED, resolution, response time, cheap
Cons: colors, blacks
Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these to replace my one old 19" narrow monitor. I had only one connected and started playing around with my usual programs - internet, finance, light games. I did not like the color, sometimes too blue, other times too red, and the blacks where never black enough.
I spent 3 days trying different programs settings and thought maybe I'd get used to it. The final straw was when I was constantly adjusting the angle to see small differences in colors.
I'm surprised that a new LED monitor would be worse than my 5 year old LCD-type. So I'll have to pay the shipping and restocking fee to send them back.
It is true that you get what you pay for, but with so many good reviews I thought I'd take a chance. Having now experience the monitor, I can't see that is worth 5 "eggs", there have got to be better monitors out there.
