I bought a Viewsonic VX910 19" LCD screen from best buy today for $599. It was $699 with a $100 rebate so that was pretty sweet.

Viewsonic company has always delivered a very good product. Great warranty on their monitors. I imagine the LCD's they are building are very good.

I've got it and I love it...but there seems to be some confusion whether its 25 ms or 16 ms...I saw it at office depot the other day and they had it listed as 25 ms...while Viewsonic lists it at 16 ms.

Do you like the monitor for playing games? If so, the response time doesn't matter. I'm perfectly happy playing games on one samsung 25ms panel, but not on another (172N great for gaming, 192N = headache in 3 minutes).

Viewsonic's site still says 16 ms...I haven't seen any smearing in games so my assumption is that it really is 16 ms. Even says so on the box. I think they're using descriptions for older monitors on most of the sites.

Unless its 16 ms rise, 9 ms fall.

I think we need AT to do a review on this monitor ASAP :)

I agree!!! the numbers can be confusing and for some of us the relevance of the numbers for given uses is even more so.....Come on AT!!!

Bah,

It's only 1 year inside the US.

They make a great monitor, but i still want longer than a year..

CompUSA has a carry in replace which is decent..

there are VERY few 19" panels with sub 20-25ms response times, the 16ms 19" panels are coming though, there may be 1 or two out already, I havent kept up with it for awhile since I heard they were announced, but chances are the viewsonic is NOT 16ms.
