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...

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.

ViewSonic VA1912w


Though the 19-inch wide-screen ViewSonic VA1912w looks modest, it packs a punch, with above-average performance, full-sounding built-in speakers, and a very sweet price.

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

Today, we have for review a wide-screen 19" variant from ViewSonic called VA1912W.

Sharp and bright display, Excellent color reproduction and contrast, 8 ms response time, Wide-screen format

Minor color registration issue, Slightly expensive

Good monitor, poor customer service


While I do like the monitor, I will never buy from ViewSonic again. Their policies are terrible, their customer support bordering on rude, and would not come to an acceptable solution.

The monitor is crisp, clean, arrived without any dead pixels, doesn't ghost and achieves pretty much everything you'd want from a monitor in at a fir price

The stand does not offer any adjustable height, just tilt. Prone to failure after 6-12 months where the screen blanks out, LED blinks green every second or so, and takes about 5 minutes to restore video. ViewSonic customer service has horrible...

Great for all...except RTS


This is my first LCD Monitor and overall I'm pretty impressed. I play a variety of games, RTS being my favorite. Unfortunately, not even this monitor's great response time is fast enough for enjoyable blur-free gaming with games such as Rise of...

bright ; one of the lowest response times around ; very crisp ; no dead pixels ; viewsonic quality ; nice to look at ; great for most games ; viewing angle

not fast enough response time for RTS (real time strategy) games for my liking
