  • ViewSonic A90 - 19" proves bigger is better.

    Jul 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reasonable cost, great color, ViewSonic name. Customer service is excellent, too.
    Cons: It is a big and heavy piece of equipment.

    Summary: I recently reviewed the ViewSonic GT775 monitor that I use at work and now that I'm home I can do my review for my other ViewSonic, the ViewSonic A90. I mentioned in my previous review that I have had a good experience with both monitors, ... read more

  • Bad Service

    Oct 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good
    Cons: Didn't work

    Summary: My first A-90 developed a large dark area on the right side of the screen. I called Viewsonic, got an RMA number and sent the monitor in for repair in it's original box just as when it was new. Two weeks later I received the "repaired" monitor. It ... read more

  • Great reliable monitor!

    Jul 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The price, brand name, the size of the screen!
    Cons: The size and weight of this thing. Can't complain since it's a 19" CRT.

    Summary: If you want a budget big screen monitor. This is the way to go. I have had it turned on close to 24 hours everyday for 3 years now and has nothing wrong with it. Nice crisp display. There is also a flat panel version of this monitor which ... read more

  • Good value for a 19" monitor, but needs lots of space!

    Dec 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, bright image, high quality, 3-year warranty, ViewSonic brand name, and simple driver install.
    Cons: Very large and heavy, flickers with some video card drivers, eye strain at highest resolution.

    Summary: How could one not be tempted by the sheer size of the display? When I bought my 150 MHz Pentium in 1996, it came with a 15” CTX Monitor that I had been using ever since. Frankly, when I got it, it seemed amazing, esp. since I was used ... read more

  • ~Gotta Love the BIG SCREEN~

    Pros: Great picture quality, "the BIG Screen" and it's affordable...
    Cons: None that I know of at this time...

    Summary: My boyfriend built me a computer.... At first we let the monitor be a thing that wasn't a "Have to Have" thing.... Now that I have moved in with him, our computers sit side by side .... He has a Gateway computer with a 19 inch monitor.... my tiny ... read more

    Pros: Big, bold, beautiful images. Makes surfing faster and easier!
    Cons: Pink tinge when you first turn it on, which quickly goes back to bright white.

    Summary: When we recently had to purchase a new computer system, we went ahead and upgraded from our 17" monitor to this 19" monitor. It doesn't sound like a huge difference in viewing space, especially for the hefty price of $299! But it certainly has made ... read more

  • A90 is top of it's field for the price!!!

    Jul 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Bright picture, deep clear colors, nice attractive appearance!
    Cons: Big and heavy with a deep backside so you have to have the room.

    Summary: I am not a computer expert even though I do design and do maintenance on various web sites so when I needed to upgrade to a 19" monitor, I read all I could read on the web and in magazines about the best consumer grade monitors available. All the ... read more

  • Nice 19" High Quality

    Apr 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sharp clear picture
    Cons: Color could be a little better

    Summary: I was shopping for a 21" monitor to watch DVDs on but a quick look at the prices and I realized that I would not be getting a 21" monitor or even a 19" monitor. Realizing monitors weigh a lot and shipping would cost too much, I went to the local Best ... read more

  • Quality worth the price

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Problem-free after a year
    Cons: Not the cheapest monitor around

    Summary: I started out trying to save money by purchasing a no-name 17 inch monitor from CompUSA, soon adding a second. Both died a quick death, with one of them turning darker and darker almost immediately. Then I decided to purchase a Viewsonic A90 19-inch ... read more

  • Can't say much about Viewsonic now..

    Apr 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, Size (19")
    Cons: Terrible Eye Strain, Bad Refresh Rate

    Summary: beyond that I won't buy from them again. I spent months trying to find the best monitor since I am on a limited budget and demand high standards. This monitor has caused eye pain that caused me to see an eye doctor. I called up Viewsonic and they ... read more

  • A90 is A-OK+

    Apr 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, picture, warranty, size
    Cons: Had to exchange the first one, hopefully that's not typical

    Summary: The pro's cover most of the important bases: price, picture, warranty, and cabinet size unless you have an unlimited budget... and few of us do. When my 17" monitor went out I knew I wanted to go to something bigger but was constrained by the ... read more

  • ViewSonic A90 - So nice, I bought it twice!

    Mar 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big! Bright! Low Price, and drumroll please..... a 3 Year Warranty!
    Cons: None that I can think of!

    Summary: Well, we have been suffering with a tiny little 15 inch monitor for too long. My daughter's computer is the one we use the most in the house, since I have yet to unpack my new Hewlett Packard from the box, due to the electrician having been busy for the ... read more

    Cons: none

    Summary: The Viewsonic a90 is my home monitor. I'll state the bad things first... there are very few. The monitor it heavy, and it fairly long (deep). Aren't most crt monitors though?? Good things. I don't think that I can mention enough. This monitor ... read more

    Pros: Good price, Crisp, Colourful
    Cons: Higher resolutions not that useful

    Summary: My existing monitor (a Philips 17" monitor, a few years old) blew up just before Christmas, so on Boxing day, I picked up a Viewsonic A90. I didn't have a lot of money to spend, but I wanted something better than the Philips (it sucks spending ... read more

  • Good value in a consumer monitor

    Oct 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Picture brightness
    Cons: Depth and lack of tilt range

    Summary: I upgraded from an old Sony 17" monitor to the Viewsonic A90 19" monitor. I chose the Viewsonic because it looked pretty good in the store, and the price was right at $330. (I would never buy a monitor over the internet because there is far too ... read more

    Pros: Great deal!!!!
    Cons: .28 dot pitch

    Summary: I just recently bought a brad new machine. I was on a very tight budget so I tried to buy all my parts and components OEM. I was doing very well in keeping my overall price down and I was staying in my budget. I was doing very well until it came ... read more

    Pros: crisp, bright, and clear
    Cons: heavy (but aren't they all?)

    Summary: My favorite Bob Marley song, Three Little Birds, says "don't worry, 'bout a thing--every little thing, gonna be all right." So when we set up this monitor, with its three charming and colorful birds perched just above its ... read more

    Pros: Quality, features, price
    Cons: takes up a large amount fo room

    Summary: I recently put together my own home pc. When it came to monitors I shopped all over at many stores. All of the sales people I asked recommended the ViewSonic brand. They were not lying. The price was reasonable, not too much or not too little. The ... read more

  • Good consumer monitor, but better monitors can be had

    Jan 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very nice image quality, reasonable price
    Cons: dot-pitch is only .27mm, fairly deep

    Summary: The A90 is ViewSonic's 19" monitor from their "consumer line", i.e. it is sold in places like CompUSA and Best Buy rather than through computer resellers such as MicroWarehouse. It has an 18" viewable area and a .27mm dot pitch (don't ... read more
