Top customer reviews
The IPS panel technology screen used in this product is among the best, though I must say it is not as good as some high-end IPS panel screens. If it had these best of the best IPS panels, this product would have attracted five stars from me.
Particularly for VIEWSONIC, they need to up the ante in their checks for screen bleeds. you know, backlight emanating from the sides or corners of your screen? Well, my unit had some, though for most users it will be unnoticed, for users of IPS panels it will be very very important, including for me.
The cabling and four usb ports is also simple, well managed, and well positioned, perfect for the power user. Users who prefer looks over function will also be happy with its general looks and color, though some gamers won't be too happy with the reaction time of the screen, but then again, all IPS panels are slower than their TN counterparts.
If you ask me, I'd prefer faithful color reproduction over speed anytime, and the menus of this monitor and its color adjustments coupled with the intrinsically color-correct IPS panel with very wide view angles is really, really worth it.
All in all it is a very satisfactory product for the money spent.
There's a driver disk (with manual - you can download this from Viewsonic's site) and a quick start sheet. All cables VGA, DVI, mains, etc are in the box. There's a USB cable too to attach to your PC to allow you to use the 4 USB slots which are on the underside of the monitor. Quite handy. There's no HDMI. Still you can buy a HDMI to DVI cable if needed.
There are five buttons on the front to control the monitor's OSD but first you should install the driver and software called PerfecSuite Plus which lets you control the monitor from your PC and save and use various profiles. It also allows you to rotate the screen through 90 degrees to use its portrait view function. I should add there is one of those bright blue lights on the front which is annoying. I put a little bit of blutac on it.
Using the PerfectSuite program, it is very easy to set the monitor as you wish and experiment with various settings. Some settings require the OSD but most can be done via the software.
Okay, how was it for me? Well the screen is really nice. Colours are even and realistic. One review said colours looked flat. They don't - they look right! Colours look even over the panel. Brightness is fine too: mine was at 100% when it arrived I had to reduce that to about 40%. Text looks very good crisp but not with a glow for being over sharpened. Overall the image is balanced and a pleasure to work with.
The monitor is SRGB. It uses an 8-bit IPS panel so you get 24-bit 16.7 million colours. Gradients are smooth. Blacks are very black and whites look properly white. Viewing angles are very good - side to side top to bottom the image stays stable.
The monitor has a 14ms response with a 5ms gtg. Some reviews said with 14ms it's too slow for games. Rubbish! It's great for games of all types. I've been using it for F1 2010, Q3A, Mass Effect 2, etc. It looks fine. No smear or blur. Movies look fine too. Indeed, it's an all round good monitor which is very good for photography and video.
This is one of Viewsonic's VP Professional series and as such has a zero pixel policy - perfect. It offers a three year swap-out warranty.
Speaking of which... The monitor I have has some slight backlight leakage. Nothing bad and I could live with it - it is only seen on a fully black screens - but it is annoying. I find myself looking for it. So, I'll test Viewsonic's warranty service - new for new. I want the monitor but I don't want backlight leakage.
In spite of the slight backlight leakage this is an excellent monitor and for a great price. The Dell U2311H and NEC EAW231WMi use the same panel and offer a similar performance level and light leakage but currently cost about £100 more...
There's a great full review on TFTcentral.
1. No HDMI. This could be a problem if you want to use the screen with a laptop, as some newer laptops (including my son's Ideapad) have an HDMI connector only.
2. The USB ports are very hard to get to. They are tucked away at the back (not on the edge of the screen) and are downward facing. They would be OK for peripherals you intend to leave permanently attached (though swiveling and/or rotating the screen may be a problem). But if like me you want plug and unplug USB drives or adaptors for SD cards, the are too inconvenient to be useful.
If these niggles are of no concern to you, this is a screen you should seriously consider. But do shop around for the best price.
One final note of interest, the box this 23" monitor arrived in was larger and far better padded than the packaging for our 42" plasma TV, so it is very well protected in transit. I wish I could say that for everything that I have delivered!
This monitor arrived very quickly, and was in use after a few minutes. I profile it using Spyder3 Elite. It's very good for using Photoshop and Lightroom, although I could wish for a larger vertical dimension - but this is not a problem, it's me being greedy! Sensible price, it's a very good buy. I would have no hesitation recommending it.
