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...

Good digital performance. Dual inputs. Wide viewing angles

Weak analog performance. Limited adjustability

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

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

Agree that it is a great value for the money.


Love the monitor, but would get a newer one with actual 16x9 screen dimensions, and for those in the Graphic Arts,this one is good for beginners, not for the rest of us.

Nice and bright color set

Applications are now extending below the bottom of the screen. Makes it very hard to use certain programs, like Firefox or Adobe Photoshop in full screen mode

OK monitor, but sending for REPAIR is a NIGHTMARE!


I can spend more than 5000 characters voicing my opinion about Viewsonic's poorly represented customer service and my sad story with that, but Viewsonic just needs to find another vendor to do their service RMAs and repairs, and everything will be...

Good color, very light, takes up very little space on the desk. Image quality is great

Customer service is poor. I sent a monitor to them for service 11/20, and have not yet received it back again, it's 12/16. I worked in customer service 30 years, what they portray as customer service is a poor representation. I am very disappointed

Great for gaming!!! 8ms response & no ghosting!!


I love this monitor, I play World of Warcraft and many FPS games such as Quake IV, Doom 3, and F.E.A.R. with great results. 8ms response means you get no ghosting (at least I don't) and for the money this monitor cannot be beat. The built in speakers...

Excellent value

Tinny sounding speakers

This LCD is not for Gamers! Beginner Buyer will find it ok.


OK it is for sure a 19" LCD due to the extra part of the built in speaker, but gamers no need that crap speaker at all.

Cheap! Space saving! And you know u do have a 19" LCD

The bulky look of the LCD and the button just make u sick

Great Monitor for the price


I've had this monitor for about a week and I'm very happy with it. I use to have a Viewsonic 19 CRT that was going bad but lukcy I go the replacement plan from Compusa. I traded the monitor in and got this one and I'm very happy. I have a TV tuner card...

Awsome color and graphics

Controls are a little clunky but ok

Great value for money, excellent quality


Overall, I'm very impressed with this monitor....I use it as a 2nd monitor on my PowerBook. No stuck pixels, super crisp image, and it's big and bright. 8ms response really does make a difference with video. I paid $300 for it -- great deal. The only...

Value, High resolution, 8ms response time, very bright, digital inputs, 3 yr warranty

Awkward user interface (e.g. brightness control), unwanted/poor quality built in speakers, slightly bulky frame

Consumer review by:



All the features

None...that I see

Consumer review by:

Crisp, bright display, good price


I find the picture quality excellent with this monitor. Colors are bright and crisp. The only downside is, in my opinion, the speakers add some bulk to the look of the monitor and therefore it doesn't appear as slim as some of the others. Overall, for...

Bright display, great color

Slightly bulkier looking than other LCD monitors
