viewsonic makes a good product. their vp (professional) series is no joke. 170deg viewing angles, great color, clarity, 1080p - made for a 60hz signal i believe so not 120hz 3d ready. we've owned two and havent had any issues. not sure about the vx (value) series as we havent bought any.
you also have the option of adding a tuner card to your pc instead of having it monitor-based. this would give you a wider (and perhaps better) monitor selection.
