Pros:Bought it at Buy.com. This monitor is very large & has a clear picture. I read all the reviews I could on it before buying it & it has no dead pixels. I can not tell you much about the speakers because I have a surround sound system instead. I have watched movies on Netflix & they have been great.
Cons: One con is no DVI cable only VGA. I was lucky to have an extra DVI cable. Another con would be no HDMI input, but if you use a DVI cable you wouldn't see much difference.
Other Thoughts: Over all this is a great buy & fine monitor, I wish I would have bought this one for my wife too, but I didn't.
I am very pleased with this monitor. Very good picture quality and easy set up. At $130 with free shipping I consider it a bargain as well.
This is my first LCD monitor. I anticipated some challenges when setting it up. I am using Windows XP. Installation was more or less plug & play. Turn off the computer, connect the wires, boot the computer, set the resolution in My Computer and you are ready to go. I did not use the disc included with the monitor. One minor concern; the installation directions were very sparse. Simply a series of drawings. Happily that's all I needed.
If you have never used a monitor this large before you are in for a pleasant surprise. There is plenty of room to display two pages of a document, large photos or drawings etc.
The monitor is very bright with good colors.
My rough calculations indicate that this monitor will use approximately 28% of the electricity of my old CRT not counting the ECO mode.
The monitor has built in speakers. Other reviews indicate that they are marginal. I didn't bother using them. I am satisfied with my current speaker and woofer system.
All & all a great buy.
LCD has better resolution than LED but refresh rate a bit slower. This product is perfect in every way and highly suggest the 24 inch for those who like the old 19 or 20 inch screens for MS office products. Otherwise widescreen is great for multimedia, etc.
LCD is a bit cheaper, but LED probably less energy and lasts longer since fluorescent tubes are not intensive.
I'm not a professional about monitor.
I just wanted a working monitor for my computer.
The color and picture quality are good to me.
I had no dead pixel, no problem on side view, and no problem with the configuration.
I use it for video games, videos, and work and I'm very satisfied.
I was curious to see how were the build-in speaker so I tried and the result was terrible. Better use stereo speakers than the monitor one. The sound is like coming out of a toy or something.
Viewsonic is a quality brand and that shows in this giant 24" monitor. Crisp colors and bright picture make this a great buy. Also has built in speakers which I did not initially see in the product description.
