Is this for professional usage or learning/hobby work?

If it is for professional usage and you want accurate colors (once calibrated), then you need to at least double your budget at the very minimum.

Regarding the Viewsonic, here are some reviews of it:


I can't really make a recommendation with a $300 budget, perhaps someone can help you out over at
