My hunch is that it is either the Viewsonic itself (most likely) or  
the particular driver/refresh (not so likely)... is that an analog  
VGA picture or DVI?

Those pixels (in your photo) are like 3D... so not only do they look  
well defined but they seem to be domed towards the viewer.  I just  
put my nose 6 inches away and while I can see each individual pixel  
the same way on my screen, they're flat pixels not domed looking....  
and the black lines are very thin.  If I stare too long the whole  
thing wiggles and blurs and my eyes hurt.  I can't look at it too  
long like that.
