I am very pleased with the ViewSonic VP2468 monitor. The rendering and editing experience has been on spot for me. As an artist and a design professor I look for the best details in colour reproduction and they mean everything to me in my line of work. The color reproduction is extremely good in this beautiful display and is very noticeable from the start compared to my previous setup. The auto-pivot is very convenient and lets me view the images at my desired angle. I can shift , tilt and even rotate the monitor with the touch of a finger literally. This feature is extremely useful for tethered shooting with my 100mp camera. The 99% sRGB gives excellent reproduction that has absolutely made a difference and helped in making accurate corrections in making large format prints.
