Pros: Quiet, nice cabling, generally nice power supply when it is working.
Cons: After 4 months of use, it failed into a state where it constantly cycles the power on and off; if I remove power for a period of time and then start it runs a bit longer then starts cycling again, almost like there is a failure in the thermal sensor.
Other Thoughts: Not an inexpensive power supply. It's not under heavy load...8 hard drives, a Haswell board with integrated graphics...no graphics cards. Wouldn't not have expected this to fail under these conditions.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful monitor...when it works.
Cons: Failed in weeks, support experience with Viewsonic is HORRIBLE. Backlights started blinking and then the picture would go black...submitted an RMA which included all of the information, then a support person emailed me asking for the serial number (which not only was part of the original RMA request, but was also in the email string that they responded to). They indicated it could take up to 14 business days to repair. I asked if they could ship a replacement (and I would provide a CC # that they could charge and or refund when they receive the RMA) but they said no. After a few weeks I inquired about status (since the site simply says "in repair") and again the support person didn't even look at the email (which had the RMA number) and asked me for an RMA number. When I provided it AGAIN, they simply said "it is being repaired".
A nice monitor (when working) but I will never buy from Viewsonic again.
