ViewSonic - VG150 ViewPanel

 

LCD monitors are becoming increasingly popular, but are still nowhere near dominating the desktop. There are various reasons for that, not least of which is price, and that's set to rise due to increased manufacturing costs. ...

This is a bright, crisp display with good colour depth support for its size. It can be desk or wall-mounted and complies with all the major monitor standards. It's expensive compared to a CRT display, and the digital-analogue-digital conversion...

Disappointing Performance

 

I purchased a Viewsonic VE150 ViewPanel back in April 2001. Since then, I'm on my third ViewPanel. The Power Supply connection behind the monitor has proved to be mighty troublesome! After about 2-3 months the screen flickers on and off, the green LED...

sharp and bright.

 

At first I didn't like this monitor at all. It was hard to look at and did weird things to my eyes, gave me headaches. After about a week of forcing myself to use it... I couldn't go back to CRTs. The picture is so sharp. It's so bright.

sharp, small, cheaper

lack of video card support, low resolutions only, analog
