Pros: Sharp, clear, bright
Very thin and light
Cons: Not even close to being a 23" screen
Other Thoughts: I've been using ViewSonic monitors since the old CRT days, so when I wanted to upgrade my old 22" to a full HD monitor, I bought this one. What I thought I was getting was a monitor with a slightly larger screen, and better resolution. What I got was the better resolution, but in a 21" display...and I know it's 21" because I measured it. The physical bezel is very thin, but as some others have mentioned, there's actually a dead space between the bezel and the actual screen as displayed. On the left and right sides, this is roughly 3/4" of nothing, and around 3/8" on the top and bottom.
I'm very disappointed. I feel as though ViewSonic lied, or let the marketing people run wild. (Same thing? Probably.) It's a little more than 22" from corner to corner of the bezel, but all that blank area shrinks the actual screen size to 21" diagonally.
It's very sharp, though, and may or may not be worth the time and effort to send it back. Not what I thought I was buying, though. Be aware.
