Outstanding value, amazing monitor,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ViewSonic VX2703MH-LED 27-Inch LED-Lit LCD Monitor, Full HD 1080p, 3ms, HDMI/DVI/VGA, Speakers, VESA (Personal Computers)
This is an amazing monitor. The display is crisp and high contrast, and the entire unit is surprisingly light. It worked instantly right out of the box and even mounted to a monitor mounting arm (made by Ergotron) that says it's only for monitors up to 24". But this Viewsonic 27" LED monitor was so light that it mounted perfectly on the arm. The URL for the arm I'm using with this monitor is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00358RIRC/ref=oh_details_o03_s01_i00
Overall, this monitor is highly recommended. Very good value. This is what I'm using now to write daily news reports, and it's super easy on my eyes. I'm actually buying a second one to use side by side. The lower energy consumption is also an important bonus for all of us who strive to live a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.

As a 79 years old man technically obsolete person trying to add a larger screen to a laptop to make it easier to read for me and easier on my back, I have yet to be able to install the monitor ao make it work with the laptop. Any chance for a more detailed step-by-step instruction with minimal assumption that I can understand the buzz words. The instruction that came with the monitor is not comprehensible for me. Thanks.

If you managed to connect all the pieces to the laptop then I think the issue lies with the laptop. You may need to tell the laptop to send a signal to monitor. This can be accomplished by right clicking the mouse button when you are on the desktop (the first screen you see when the computer has finished starting). Then clicking on properties. There will be a new menu that pops up. From this menu select settings. You should see two blue boxes inside of a grayish box. If you don't see two boxes inside the gray box then you have not connected your monitor correctly to the laptop. On the bottom of the menu that just popped up click on "Identify". Numbers should flash up on both your laptop and monitor. Now click on the blue box that corresponds to the number that flashed up on your monitor (you'll have to do all these steps on your laptop). Once selected then you want to put a check mark in the box that says "Use this device as the primary monitor". Now click apply and the screen should flash a few times. Now your monitor should be working. If you have a box pop up and ask you if you are happy with these settings click yes, or in 30 second it will reverse the action you have just performed. You should be set, good luck!

Well, to do this, you'll need a VGA cable. It looks like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/com
1. Find the spot on your laptop that fits the cable and plug in one end.
2. ON the other end, plug it into the back of the monitor.
3. Turn on both the monitor and the laptop and you should be good to go! (you might need to change the source on the monitor with the buttons on the monitor itself.) Good luck!
