Viewsonic VA2231w review

 

The 21.5in VA2231w is the epitome of a budget LCD monitor. It looks reasonably attractive thanks to its glossy black plastic bezel and stand, but has the bare minimum of features. There are VGA and DVI-D inputs, but no HDMI. You can convert DVI to HDMI...

It uses more power than an LED monitor, but it's a decent budget monitor with good image quality.

Widescreen ViewSonic : ViewSonic VA2231w-LED

 

While the keyboard and mouse provide the main means of communicating with your computer, it is the screen that tends to let the computer communicate with you. As you tend to view the screen constantly, it does help if it can perform to your...

As this display makes use of mercury-free LEDs, it is claimed that will require 30% less power compared to some regular displays and I have no reason to doubt this. The VA2231w is Energy Star certified and has a power consumption of 22W. By shopping...

Perfect monitor! Works great with Xbox 360 and PC

 

High-resolution for a 21.5-inch display, most come with the standard 1680-by-1050 resolution whilst this one has the full HD 1080p display panel which looks very nice in this panel size display. Works and looks great on my Xbox 360 and PS3 through HDMI...

Hi-res Full HD 1080p display, great size, built-in speakers are handy

Smaller size than normal 22-inch displays but nothing too big, no DVI cable included in the box (in this day and age Viewsonic?)

Can See Clearly Now

 

Wish they still put 3 connectors on the back so i could put my other PC on and play games, but it is not a VP191b as on my other system. I guess they have to cut cost on something and many don't use two connections on one monitor as some do - oh well a...

ViewSonic has put out another winner in a price you can adore. Has two Video connections - one VGA and Digital and you can switch between the two. I use one for my Camera Video Surveillance and one for my standard day to day operations. Nice to just...

Perfectly acceptable monitor

 

Speakers work, monitor looks great, brightness is way to high out of the box, but that's easy to fix. I bought this one because it had great specs and my old viewsonic died after three years of faithful service.

Very Nice!!

 

Turns on quickly. No need to set up anything, don't use the CD, it auto finds this monitor. I tried the speakers but I game and listen to music so I disabled it on the monitor. HDMI is GREAT with the PC....easy set up! I paid $139 before the increase,...

Great Display, Weak Speakers

 

As you would expect from Viewsonic the display is very nice. The speakers are acceptable for system sounds but that's about it. The sound lacks almost any bass, even with the provided software.The option to use the conventional stand or built in easel...

Software Disk?

 

My only complaint is that the disk that comes with the monitor will NOT load on my MAC. Other than that, it is an amazing monitor and I am thinking about ordering another one for my laptop.
