ViewSonic VA912b


The ViewSonic VA912b is a solid 19-inch LCD monitor that delivers good digital image quality and space-saving features at an affordable price.

Viewsonic VA912B


Although the ViewSonic VA912b is geared toward use in small offices, home offices, and corporations, there's no reason consumers can't take advantage of the performance, wide viewing angle, reasonable price, and multimedia features offered by this...

Top-notch, no-frills LCD

Low cost, bright display, accurate colors, solid stand.

1,280x1,024 seems a bit cramped if you're used to working on larger displays.

Replacing your old CRT soon

Taking this screen's $499 price tag into consideration, we found it to be very good value, despite some limitations in its colour display and its very noticeable motion blurring. An excellent screen for everyday usage and even for movie watching.


Motion blurring, poor colour representation

Works, but didn't provide power cord


Probably would buy a wide screen next time.

Works just fine. Great price and sound is okay so you don't have to have another set of speakers

Case wasn't snapped tight around LCD. Supplier only shipped half the power adapter. Fortunately, it took a standard computer power cord otherwise I would have had my new monitor without power

Great monitor, nice price


The few cons I have listed are very small and insignificant. For the $250/ea I paid for two of these monitors 6 months ago, I really got my money's worth. I'm actually looking to buy a third soon.

I checked out a few LCD's online before deciding on this monitor. Graphics and text are very crisp and clear (I'm using the DVI inputs on both monitors that I bought). The monitor is very bright, so bright that i usually have the brightness turned down...

I wish the monitors didn't have the built in speakers, they are kind of a waste. If you're using multiple video inputs (analog and DVI), the monitor will auto-select the source which can be annoying. I also wish the monitor had adjustable height

ViewSonic Value Series VA912B-3 Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 500:1 Built-in Speakers


Was very skeptical about purchasing a panel; after unpacking this one and plugging it in all my doubts about LCDs have vanished. Was looking to buy one several years ago and after hearing that they weren't suitable for gaming or video I was very...

Fast setup, no dead pixels, excellent color, very bright. Only reason I need a light on in my room is to see my keyboard ; This is a great panel if you don't already have one or if you're looking to upgrade your existing one

Shipped in factory box without any tamper-evident safeguards (no mailing tape on box openings, etc) - it was possible that the box my panel was shipped in could have been opened while in transit without my knowledge

good basic display


Definitely not a high-end display, but good for everyday typical use.

Good basic display at a good price

As others said, speakers are terrible

No more glasses


I can finally work on my computer without my glasses. I changed out my 15" monitor with this 19" flat screen. It fit in less space than the monitor. I can finally close my deck top. No more scrooling the page back and forth to read things. Just...
