    "This monitor really gives you bang for your buck! It's got a beautiful high definition curved screen great for viewing movies, who needs a TV! It's also large enough to easily use for graphics design and drawing, which I do frequently, without being too large for a standard desk. Colors appear accurately and I will certainly look to buying from this company in the future."

    "I've had my Viewsonic monitor for about a year and spend a lot of time gaming, and I couldn't be happier with its performance. The colors are rich and the blacks are black, and the image is really crisp without any lag. Setup was really simple... it's just a great display. Like I said, I primarily use it for gaming, but I imagine it would serve any other purpose just as well."
