2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to 'office standard', August 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ViewSonic VA2703-LED 27-Inch LED-Lit LCD Monitor, Full HD 1080p, 3.4ms, DVI/VGA, VESA (Personal Computers)
I decided to buy this ViewSonic monitor because of the brand's good reputation, because I wanted something 'bigger' and because the price appeared to be right. Six weeks later, I am coming back to my four year old, smaller but superior in every other aspect HP W2207H 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor. I regret my purchase and I will explain why.

Let me start with the 'good' features:

- it's large
- it's bright
- supports DVI (but not HDMI)
- price is low for a monitor this big
- watching movies in full HD looks good

And here is why I am getting back to my old monitor:

- the optimal viewing angle appears to be very, very narrow with colors fading away, or shifting once you move up/down or left/right
- the picture appears to be a little fuzzy even when positioned right in front of the screen
- it came with 2 'bad' pixels that show up as a bright blue on dark/black backgrounds and this is very annoying
- there is some very limited tilt but it's impossible to lower or lift the monitor higher

I did not return the monitor because I can still use it attached to an old laptop that does nothing but play videos but I would not recommend it as an 'office' monitor.

NOTE: By 'office standard' I mean a monitor that I can comfortably use for 8 hours at a time.

Your review was helpful in that it inspired me to compare this new ViewSonic VA2703-LED to my previous Dell 2209WAf UltraSharp display. I too am/was wondering if these VA2703-LED's are a bit fuzzy. When compared side by side to my prior Dell, these VA2703-LED displays are both brighter and crisper. However, you are spot on about the VA2703-LED having a limited viewing angle and limited tilt.

All in all, I think these VA2703-LED's are an amazing value for the price and I am ecstatic to have them for my daily office work.
