First off, what most of the reviewers are saying about this monitor is generally true. The stock stand is pretty awesome for any monitor. It raises, tilts, and rotates. Has pretty good construction quality, and the nicest thing is that it uses standard VESA mounts, unlike most stock stands. This means A. the monitor actually has VESA mounts (which is getting increasingly rare), and B. You could use these stands on any monitor with VESA mounts.
As far as the general picture quality of this monitor, it's really good... for a TN LED panel. I point that out because they were head to head with my new Ben Q's, which are VA panels. (my first experience with VA). Backlight uniformity was generally good on the Viewsonics, but just like all TN LCD's, they weren't quite up to snuff in black levels, which translates to better color reproduction. I calibrated both the BenQ and Viewsonic using a Spyder 3. I was a little upset that this monitor didn't have more manual controls, but I was able to calibrate both to the point where the colors looked almost identical. I opened up a bunch of RAW photo files, and even did some work in Photoshop. It's interesting to see how the Viewsonic shows banding in subtle gradients whereas the Ben Q smooths it out noticably better.
On a different note, I happened to get these a week after Battlefield 3 released, so I was able to test them out with fast paced gaming. I was pretty horrified to see really pronounced ghosting/ screen tearing on the Viewsonic.Read more ›
I was surprised to discover how little monitor support there seems to be for Apple products. Tried out a Samsung PX2370 first and was very unhappy with the way text was rendered on the screen. Called Samsung--they said they didn't support Macs. Same with HP support.
The Viewsonic seemed to be the only monitor that mentioned Macs in their tech specs. The display is MUCH better at rendering text; basically the same as the Apple Display that I am replacing. I'm very happy with the quality.
One small thing that I noticed with this display; it seems to take a little bit longer to wake up from sleep than a Apple display. Not sure what's up with that, but...no big deal.
The speakers are lousy, but odds are you're not buying the monitor for the speakers.
Make sure you use Apple's built-in Calibrate function in the Displays preferences panel. Makes a big difference.
I fell in love with this monitor the minute I opened the box. Sleek lines, thin profile, extemely adjustable base, and sexy cobalt power light; yes I'm nerd lol It got even better when I connected it to my PC. The colors are so crisp. Pixels are tight. This Viewsonic 24" is a very pleasant desktop monitor.
** My Use Cases **
I'm using the 24" primarily for school and photo editing. It's great for school work. Two documents are easily used at once. For example, I can have a web browser open on one side and Word on the other. For photo editing I mainly work with Corel PaintShop Pro X4. This monitor makes that software a joy to use. Fully maximized there's plenty of real estate for all palettes and the file organizer. Photo before-and-after effects applications can be adjusted and compared side-by-side at large sizes.
** 24" vs 27" **
For those considering screen size, I'll give you my first-hand experience. I was initially torn between getting this monitor or the larger, and newer, Viewsonic VG2732M-LED 27-Inch (Black). You'll notice from my profile that I wound up buying them both. I am not nearly as impressed with the 27". It's not a bad monitor, but it's too large for desktop use, for my tastes. The pixels seem large and noticeable when viewed up close. The image from the 24" is more appealing. I was very suprised to find myself preferring the 24". If you're unsure of size, I recommend you see them both in person. The 27" might be more fun if used primarily to watch movies. I've posted a more in depth review of the 27" on that product's page.
The monitor swivels smoothly. I wanted to raise it up and it wouldn't budge. I noticed a little round hook stuck in the bottom of the "stem" of the tv. I didn't know what it was but gave it a yank and it came out. Now, it raises and lowers super easily also. I just left the hook out because I couldn't figure out what else to do with it.
Most important, I'm able to do the Tile Vertical and see 2 screens at the same time - right next to each other - on the one monitor. I didn't need 2 monitors or a new graphics card - it was just plug and play. I'm very happy with this monitor.
