I would like to get everybodys thoughts on the Viewsonic vs. the Samsung LCD Flat-Panel Monitors. I am interested in purchasing a 21 incher for work, and wish to buy the sharpest, best monitor avilable. All responses are apppreciated. Thank you.
I bought a 213T and love it very, very much. I found in my searching overall much more complaints after purchase with the Viewsonic than Samsung lcd's. And then I heard NEC sued Viewsonic for lying about specs. Apparently NEC's claim is that Viewsonics specs exceed the specs of the supplier of the panel itself. Having checked a few of their source panels I've always wondered why they had "better" specs than the parent panel. Oh well, I guess NEC had enough and put the lawyers to work.
Anyway, these days most 20+ panels from major vendors are pretty darn good imo, but when I had to put my money down, I went with the Samsung for reassurance. I got a 21" panel with superb response even in games, great dark scale reproduction and zero pixel defects. I'd highly recommend it.
I had a Viewsonic LCD monitor ( 17 inches widescreen 1440x900 ) for almost 5 years and it was surprisingly good, and yet it is not dead or acting weird, still as good as a new one, i sold it and bought the Samsung S22B300B 22 inch LED monitor..... i just spent 3 weeks with my new samsung and its very great.....so go with what you think you prefer, because both companies will deliver a high quality, long lasting product
