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...

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.

PC Plus review: Viewsonic VA1912w

 

B all means consider this monitor. Just know that it's not the sensible money, high resolution, wide aspect, über-panel we've all been waiting for. And that's a shame.

Viewsonic VA1912w review

 

Like most of the displays in this group, Viewsonic's VA1912w has a silver surround and a black stand. It looks uninspiring but inoffensive. This model has been around for some time now, though, and its age is starting to show.

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
