ViewSonic VA1912w/wb

 

LCD monitor prices are finally becoming affordable, but just when it's time to finally dump that old CRT and get a new LCD, new 19” widescreen monitors have begun to take all the attention away from 15” and 17” monitors. Let's take a look at the...

Right now, there's an offer going on that gets you a free ViewSonic W2201 webcam that captures at 640x480, 30fps. The webcam has a microphone built in and connects to your PC via USB. Its also designed to sit on top of this monitor, however, the front...

ViewSonic VA1912wb

 

The ViewSonic VA1912wb's design doesn't stray far from the matte-black case that is standard issue for budget monitors; the only touch of color comes from the eight too-shiny, chrome adjustment buttons on the bottom bezel. The large, elliptical base...

Wide-screen display with good overall image quality; decent-sounding built-in speakers.

Skimps on design and ergonomics; unusual native resolution may not be compatible with some games.

Though the 19-inch wide-screen ViewSonic VA1912wb looks modest, it packs a punch, with above-average performance, full-sounding built-in speakers, and a very sweet price.

does not last long

 

Is a good monitor, when it's working, but i think ANY lcd monitor should last more than 20 months with low to medium use, (time the monitor was actually on was 1 to 3 hrs a day). I have always liked the viewsonic brand, so i was shocked when this one...

not crisp or vibrant

 

Ok for a user just looking to surf the web occasionally or send email, but not for somebody that uses the computer extensively. I would recommend you spend more money and get a better monitor. Jason www.jasonlevy.com

Great montior - avoid amatterofax though!

 

Use caution when buying from A Matter of Fax! About a month ago I bought a 19 inch LCD monitor from amatteroffax.com. The monitor shipped in time and was in good condition. However trying to return it was a nightmare. I paid $18.50 out of pocket to...

Clear screen

Really, none. Its great though a little big

Consumer review by:

Excellent value.

 

I got a great deal on this from CompUSA (we bought two). Both work perfectly. Like another user mentioned, the base itself isn't too flexible and the buttons are a bit cheap looking-- but for the price, you can't really ask for more. It's definitely a...

crisp image, widescreen, can watch movies on it

wobbly, limited adjustments

Consumer review by:

Outstanding flatscreen for the price

 

I bought this about two months when on sale at CompUSA. I wasn't really looking for a flatscreen at the time, as my 19-inch CRT was doing ok. However, the price ($199 after rebate) was hard to pass up. The reviews generally seem to favorable. Even...
