Got my ViewSonic today

About 2 hours ago, the UPS man showed up with my new ViewSonic monitor. I don't have the answer as to why, but it looks much better than the Sony did, and I saved a more than a few bucks too.

Cool, enjoy your new monitor Ed! that's interesting, I'll have to take a look at the viewsonic monitors next time I need one.

That sounds great Ed. I have an A90f Viewsonic that I really like. I have been doing a dance around my wife's PC hoping her monitor would fail. That way I could give her this monitor and I would be able to buy a 21". So far I'm doing the wrong dance or something, it's not working.

Hey Kevin, if you have a bunch of kids, and you're an old man, maybe you'll get lucky. My kids and my wife went together and bought it (the Sony) for me for my birthday last month. I've been using a ViewSonic EF70, and I was pretty impressed with it. But the 19 inch beats it hands down.

If I were you, I would call tech support. I'm hoping their customer service is as good as Sony's. Keep us updated on this. Mine looks perfect.

You might want to check to see if the monitor has a temperature setting. If it's set to something like 5000k and you are used to looking at a screen set to a "cool" 9300K, things are going to look odd at first.

that's what I was going to recommend trying, but then I couldn't remember what it was called (it only says "color" and then the numbers on my monitor) I've done some tweaking of the settings and found that it can really help if your screen looks slightly off color.

Wouldn't the color temperature affect the whole screen instead of just the center portion? I sure thought it did when I changed mine.

Chuck, that's good to know. Now I can sleep easy.

whoops! should have read the post more carefully.. if it's only in the centre of the monitor, then it's most likely a defective product, changing the color temperature will affect the entire screen and it's something you should change if you notice that the whites on your screen are appearing too far off white or too bright white on the other extreme.
