Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Viewsonic's VA2448M-LED 24-Inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Black (Personal Computers)
I needed a pair of 24" monitors to work from home more efficiently. I had a smaller 20" LCD + my laptop screen, but that just didn't cut it. I have dual 24" at work, and needed to get the same for the house to make life easier when working from home without breaking the bank. These fit the bill - Out of the box these monitors are a little on the bright side with factory settings. I had to turn down the contrast(to 40) and brightness (to 50) to get the windows 7 colors to look more natural/less washed out. Compared to my Dell work monitors these are very similar in screen quality, at least to my eye. At home (when I'm not working) I do mostly web surfing, some programming, a little youtube, etc. For what I do for work, as well as home entertainment, these monitors work just fine.
I view these mostly straight on, and from where I sit, the screens are evenly lit. Sitting any more than about 15 degrees off center, you can start to see the screen change. I do not use the speakers so have nothing to say about them. Not a single dead pixel is an added plus.
All in all, these are simple monitors that don't break the bank, but provide plenty of screen real estate in a reasonable footprint. I find that these help to reduce the eye strain I had been dealing with using the smaller 20" + laptop monitors.
Also, I got these on sale - They were just shy of a buck forty each with free shipping, so the price was right.
