At a Glance
This ViewSonic's controls are so easy to navigate you'll probably never have to refer to the documentation. In addition to common brightness, contrast, and screen-positioning controls, it has three for adjusting audio levels. Small, square buttons span the bezel's middle section; the on-screen display menu tells you when to press a button or make a selection.
The two integrated speakers don't provide much acoustical oomph--but at 1.5 watts each, we didn't expect a cinematic experience. They managed only weak bass notes and somewhat thin trebles on vocal tracks and DVD movies. Even so, if you don't want to squander desktop space on a separate set of speakers, you may find the sound quality tolerable.
This display comes with Colorific software, which lets you adjust the colors that the display generates to approximate the ones you'll get in your print jobs.
The unit's thin printed documentation covers the basics of setup. A troubleshooting section, a part covering on-screen controls, and other information resides on a CD in the form of Acrobat PDFs.
