Bought this monitor solely because it was a size upgrade from a 19" LCD widescreen, mainly to watch live TV a few feet away from the computer desk on a futon in the back room (read: not for primary DVD or TV viewing). This computer is our main desktop machine, but we don't do any video editing or photo-retouching on it, just general home office work, so as long as it was a bigger screen from a known-name company for cheap, it fit the bill. The fact of it being HD spec was outside the main objective of this purchase. I'm hooked up DVI and have not used the built-in speakers - probably never will, so I can't comment on analog VGA or audio performance.

If you're looking for a monitor to replace what you have, this is a great deal. The only real reservation about it is that there is quite a bit of blue-light bleed all around my monitor, but mainly along the bottom where the blue power LED is. Dunno if the blue halo around the screen is from this LED or not, as there's no way in the screen menus to turn off the LED itself without turning off the screen (which is logicial).

Basically: image is sharp (people who report fuzzy fonts don't understand flatscreen monitors have a native resolution, and running the screen at anything other than it's native resolution will degrade image quality), the screen is full-width (other reviews here of Yahoo and other websites not using the whole width of the screen is down to the people who program that specific webpage - it has nothing to do with the function or resolution of the monitor), and the colors/contrast are pretty good (save the extra blue bleeding). For general purpose use, this is monitor is a bargain.

The monitor is clear, vibrant with colors, has good contrast. It is pretty good for watching HD content and movies.

Cons: While watching movies, the blacks are not as black as you would want for perfect viewing pleasure. Also, with darker pictures, light bleeds at the edges.

Pros: Price for the size is unbeatable, sufficient for most day to day purposes.

Recommended: Yes!

I was looking for a new monitor to compliment my Mac Pro since I am dropping $4k+ on the Mac itself I can't afford their ONLY option of a $1k 27 inch monitor. I did some research and took a look at the reviews and decided to take a shot on this Viewsonic 24 inch with speakers. For $189 you can't beat it. It has DVI and VGA inputs w/ built in speakers and the quality is really solid. I use the DVI inputs with a DirecTV HD receiver and use the VGA with my Mac/PC. I am a little disappointed with the black levels for use as an HDTV but it's not really meant for that per se but I can't complain for the price. The speakers are pretty weak but the primary use for this monitor is for my studio DAW. It's a bonus though to be able to watch TV to take a break. ;-)

Bottom line is if you are looking for a inexpensive 24 inch HD widescreen, this is for you.

I have had mainly Viewsonic monitors for over 10 years. Each one has impressed and this 24 inch monitor is one of the best that I have seen. Very clear with excellent color quality and movies are fantastic. I am not using the built in speakers, but I imagine they would be adequete for some basic sound needs. Overall, I would highly recommend this monitor.

I've had mixed results when dealing with viewsonic monitors. But this monitor does what I need it to do.
The refresh rate isn't as great as a gaming monitor and the built in speakers suck. (but who buys a monitor for the speakers?)
yes it does lack a DVI cable, so remember they're only about $10 on amazon anyway.
the optimal settings are 1920x1080 at 60hz which is pretty decent.
the menu takes a little getting used to, but it does have a couple of features that you may find nice.
1. auto contrast adjust-I actually hate this feature, so I turn it off. basically, when the screen contents are bright, the brightness is turned up, when it's dark, the brightness is lowered (kind of backwards in my opinion)
2. auto off - I like this feature, it's kind of a piece of mind thing. When a power saving event occurs that has the PC turn off the monitor, it usually turns back on by means of waking the computer or moving a mouse. when the auto off feature is enabled, the screen remains powered off until you actually press the monitor's power button to turn it back on.
3. auto input selection - this feature is more for laymen as I personally find it a pain. if you connect this monitor to two separate computers, you'll find that if one is restarted, the monitor auto switches to the computer still connected. This is nice for every scenario except when you're actually trying to pay attention to BIOS messages during boot up.

By the way, there is one VGA input and one DVI input, the audio is a single RCA jack

So far I've purchased 4 of these monitors and they've all been working perfectly, in my experience this is kind of rare for Viewsonic, but a pleasant surprise.
