      Very nice replacement for my old 19" TN LCD.

      Although the controls are a bit hard to reach there is no need to naviage through the menus any more because there are shortcuts for common features that I just stumbled upon. (2 to cycle the input, down to adjust volume, and up to adjust the picture).

      Picture quality is excelent, no issues with glare and it connects easily to both my PC and XBOX 360. Being able to switch between them with only a single button press is also very handy.

      Comments about ViewSonic VX2370Smh-LED 23" Widescreen IPS LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

      I loved this monitor, had to do an exchange because there were dead pixels. But, I'm patiently awaiting the exchange. It's a great size, nice color, and comes with everything you need to hook up to computer.

        I use this monitor for a spare computer in my office. It is also the backup monitor if one of my primaries fails. It is perfect for these tasks and a great value! Picture is clear, and incidentally, much clearer using the included HTML cable. Setup is easy and instructions are clear. Monitor looks good and is very stable on desk.

        Comments about ViewSonic VX2370Smh-LED 23" Widescreen IPS LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

        Great Monitor for the price. I was really hoping that it would make my photo pop a little better with editing with Lightroom to get them a better printing match. Seems my photos are coming out darker then pass monitor.

        Maybe need to pick up a spyder caliber. Takes a bit of time to "warm up" about 20mins it seems.

        I really dont like the power switch on the column.
        no wall mounting points. IPS is pretty good.

        It seems like I am on the fence about the monitor not a professional unit by all means.

            Either it was this one or Acer model. Chose this because this is the best IPS panel you can buy at this price. Only downside I can think of is 1) not VESA compatible and 2) cannot adjust height.

                  Purchased this monitor and the first one received had a vertical row of pixel light up continuously green but BH Photo exchanged it for me quickly so despite the annoying delay I am now enjoying this great monitor! The thin bezels are great and coming from a TN monitor I really like the viewing angels and deep colors when watching movies! As others have mentioned, the button placements are less than optimal and the lack of adjustability on the stand equals 1 star taken off but I knew these things going in and at this great price this monitor can't be beat!

                  I've purchased six monitors of this kind over the last six months. Most are used as desktop monitors for PCs, a couple are used for our live sports instant replay system. I love these monitors! The image is very clear, and design makes them perfect in location that have high traffic. Only downside is the limited accessibility of the control buttons (under the monitor, on the base). But it hasn't really been a big deal.

                  I bought this to connect to my laptop and provide more real estate to do photo cataloging and editing. The screen is excellent and very sharp. Colors are good and the LED is bright. As others have said, the controls are not ideal (although they are not as bad as others make them out to be) and the speaker is just as bad as my laptop's. But I didn't buy the monitor for the speakers. Otherwise, I think this is a great, high quality panel that doesn't look half bad either. I would recommend it.

                          Sometimes we all get hung up on minutiae. Do you want a monitor that performs sooooo much better than a standard monitor...that provides crisp detail and great color? This one fits the bill

                              For the money, the VX2370Smh-LED is the best monitor in most circumstances. Picture quality is excellent and you will not beat it unless you're going to spend more money on higher priced monitors. Very similar competitive units include the HP 2311xi and Asus VS239H-P. The Asus unit has a weak stand, and the HP comes with a one year (relatively short) warranty. For a little more money, the Dell U2312HM includes more stand adjustments (swivel, height) and a slightly better color gamut.

                              The ViewSonic monitor has controls built into the stand, so it is not the right choice if you're planning on any type of wall mount application.

                              I think how the controls work is fine. They're touch-screen type controls. (Others might favor the older-style manual buttons.) Keep in mind that you'll probably need to lower the brightness since this unit comes with it turned all the way up.

                              I use my monitor on a Linux CentOS 6 PC. I do not use the monitor speakers; I have a separate pair of decent desktop speakers.

                              I like the overall design; it's a shiny black unit with a frame-less design, and again, the IPS panel in this monitor puts out a great picture (go to ViewSonic website to read about pixel performance guarantee). The rest of the specs are on par or better than monitors in the same price range. I particularly like the low 27 watt power usage. Note that this monitor comes with VGA, DVI and HDMI connections, which are HCDP compliant - so all your bases are basically covered regarding connectivity options.

                              I've owned my monitor for about two weeks now. I can't speak to reliability other than to say that ViewSonic has been around for some time now and generally has built good monitors.

                              I think you would like this monitor. I'm really comfortable with my purchase decision.

                                Monitor resolution seems excellent. Quality of build is of lesser quality than the five year old Viewsonic that I replaced.
                                B&H delivery schedule indicated that an order placed by 4:00 P.M. on 12/20 would arrive before Christmas. Promise was for free 2 day shipping. At checkout a notation indicated that standard shipping to my zip code was faster than two day. I got the package on 12/28. I will use Amazon in the future.

                                Comments about ViewSonic VX2370Smh-LED 23" Widescreen IPS LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

                                I got this on sale when it went on sale on B&H. It was a good $40 less than anywhere else at the time and I was in the market for another monitor so I went for it. I've used it for about a month now and it's been great so far with no dead pixels.

                                I mainly use it as the center monitor of a triple monitor (3x23") setup and I also hook up the WiiU's HDMI connection to this monitor on a few occasions to take advantage of the PCM audio over HDMI. The monitor's speakers are nothing special, no different than the built-in speakers on any random TV, but it gets the job done. It has an audio jack as well and it affords me the ability to plug in my headset to stay quiet.

                                The screen is unique in that the screen is on the same level as the bezel. So it stands out more and creates an illusion of a smaller bezel than the more traditional 23" monitors that I have flanking it, especially being a bright IPS monitor.

                                The bad thing about this monitor is that it does NOT have VESA support, and you are required to use the included monitor stand because the monitor controls and the speakers are part of the stand itself. The stand can only tilt forward and backwards and it does not have height adjustment nor can it swivel. I knocked off a star for that but otherwise it's a great low budget IPS monitor.
