Great display, 120hz is awesome
on June 1, 2011
I bought 3 of these to use with NVIDIA Surround. They work great and the fluidity in BC2 at ~90fps is a huge step up from my old 60hz display. I know they don't contain magical IPS panels but you're buying a 120hz display for games, and it performs extremely well in that scenario.
My only gripe is with ViewSonic. As I said, I ordered 3 of these. One of them was missing the "ViewSonic" logo on the front of the display - there were just three holes where the logo should have been, so I called ViewSonic to see if they could do anything about it. The person on the phone said they don't stock the small logo piece (understandable I guess), but I was told that I could fill out some paperwork for an advanced RMA and they would replace the whole unit. I filled out the paperwork like they said and e-mailed it back. A few days later I get an e-mail saying they wouldn't do anything about it after all and that I would need to contact Amazon.
E-mailed Amazon and they had a replacement out to me in a couple days. I'm constantly amazed by Amazon's customer service - kudos to Amazon for being willing to fix ViewSonic's mistake for them.
To ViewSonic's credit though, I've had 4 of these now and not one has had a single dead pixel. The backlighting is pretty even on all of them too.
