Product Specifications

ViewSonic leads the way in LCD displays with the VG181 ViewPanel. A large, thin profile screen allows this flat panel display to easily fit into confined spaces, such as enclosed cabinets, or even mounted on the wall. Its exceptional image performance is further enhanced by the wide viewing angle - a full 160 degrees. This makes the VG181 ideal for multi-tasks and multiple users who need to read complex graphics and text from many different places in the room, close-up or far away. Add to that, high screen resolutions for incredible clarity plus OnView controls for ease of use, and it's easy to see why the VG181 ViewPanel continues ViewSonic's tradition of being recognized as a technology leader, awarded for maintaining high quality and impressive price performance.
