Viewsonic VX2858Sml

 

The ViewSonic VX2858Sml is an energy-efficient 28-inch multimedia monitor that delivers a sharp HD picture and looks good doing it, but it comes up short on features.

Two HDMI/MHL inputs. Good HD detail. Sleek design. Energy efficient.

No USB ports. Blacks could be darker. Tinny speakers.

Conclusion The ViewSonic VX2858SML won't wow you with bells and whistles, and it's not a top performer, but it does deliver sharp HD imagery on a spacious 28-inch screen for a little more than $300. That said, the lack of USB ports and other features...

Product easy to set up either DVI digital video interface, vga, or HDMI,

 

This is the best money purchase, Just measure your desk before getting this monitor, also it comes with drivers disc, will work with windows 10 home or pro. has monitor profile and drivers for windows 9x to windows 8 32 to 64 bit, will work fine with...

IF you use HDMI or DVI, you will get sharper and clearer picture.

Please measure your desk. tried to put this on a wal mart desk, the monitor was extremely huge. Please measure the desk before getting this product, this will take up room :)

Great Picture

 

No dead pixels. Very clear images.

Bought this for my wife - she is a programmer. When she saw it she thought it was too big but now she would never go back. She loves it.

It won't make coffee for us.

So far so good

 

Otherwise, it was a good buy for the cost and what i needed at this time.

Display is as good as i expected it to be. Would be expected from ViewSonic in the first place.

Stand is unstable, like the other comments state. It is a 28" monitor though, so you can't have best of both worlds.

Glossy screen

 

Inexpensive for such a large screen, front facing controls.

This monitor has a glossy screen. I bought it based on an answer that said this has a matte finish. Maybe that was the case on earlier production runs, but not with the one I got. I never even turned it on because it is going back.

Great if you want a big monitor, nothing else.

 

This is just a good viewing monitor, with VGA cable included. Nothing more is needed. Do not burst when all the features that are advertised don't work, because they won't work. I will keep mine because all I wanted was a big screen for my laptop. The...

Great price now ; VGA Cable included ; Simple, big screen monitor, that's it

Bought mine at $30 more ; Now on sale, now I know why ; Speakers are worthless ; Plugging into mobile devices with mini USB devices worthless (Samgung Galaxy Tab, would assume Apple, etc) ; Worthless base (if you sneeze, the monitor might fall on you)...

Personal for Office Use - I have the biggest!

 

We got new desktops here at work, I treated myself to a New Monitor. (everyone wanted 2 screens, I can do the same with one) However, some of the high end Monitors come with speakers built in that are not worthy of using. Save us the $ of lousy...

Beautiful screen!

 

This is a beautiful screen. Any screen this size will allow for multi-tasking, but this one really shows videos and TV so well that you may be tempted to go full screen and skip the work! The only quibble I had was that the screen is not ajustable for...

Not pleased at all

 

Really disappointed in this purchase. First, I was purchasing this to replace my HannsG 28in I got over 6 years ago. Though it was going to be an upgrade, but I was mistaken. Out of the box, like a lot of monitors need some adjusting. But after about a...

-Decent price for a 28 inch.

-Washed out -Auto adjust didn't work -Bad contrast -MHL wouldn't work (Could be compatibility issue though) -Response Time adjustment from standard to fast/ultra fast made ghosting worse.
