ViewSonic VA1930WM 19-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor


Consumer review by:

Another Great Product from Viewsonic


I had the 19" widescreen HansG before this for about a month. This is just leaps and bounds better as far as picture quality is concerned. I spent over 8 hours trying to adjust that HansG to look right, and it still didnt. It took me maybe 20min to...

Ideal native resolution. Widescreen. Good color reproduction. 360 degree swivil base

Speakers are worthless, but who actually uses monitor speakers anyhow

ViewSonic Graphic Series VG1930wm Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers


I recommend it if you want something simple. I'm sure there's better monitors, but I've had this for more than a year already and it's doing great for me.

Very stable base, bright and colorful. I do video editing and photoshop and this screen is really nice so far

Speakers are terrible, no head phone port

ViewSonic Value Series VA1930wm Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with height adjustment 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers


Purchased this as a second screen for my Linux (Ubuntu) workstation, so I wanted to get the same model as the original one. Crisp and good refresh for my work (I don't do games, so I don't know how that is). Using DVI for one monitor and D-Sub for the...

Have to figure out how to shut down the stupid OSD if you don't run it in 1440x960 mode. At least they made it possible on this model from the menu. Speakers are not worth anything

I bought 2 of these monitors about 6 months apart. I bought them where I work because they were at a better deal (after discount). I initially just bought one monitor, and recently bought the second. It's amazing what another 19 diagonal inches can do...

This monitor is exceptional. Vivid colors and high resolutions. What more could you want

People say the speakers suck, but I use a 5.1 surround sound system, so they aren't a con for me since I don't use them. Other than that, no cons

Worth it


I got this for Christmas and it was by far the best present I got.

The speakers come in very handy, the adjustments on the screen rotation and height are extremely easy to use and work very well. The screen quality is amazing

I wish the speakers got a bit louder, but its only a monitor. I'd need a dedicated set of computer speakers to get what I want

Nice Addition/Upgrade


Good quality display. I watch a lot of DVDs and streaming media. Very good upgrade from my AOC 17" LCD

DVI cable should be included. Built in speakers are useless (as in all monitors with built in speakers)

Great Monitor!


Thanks ViewSonic!

I've had this monitor for about 10 months now and it has been great! I am going to buy a second now for a dual display set up


Consumer review by:

Perfect upgrade


I needed to upgrade my monitor and have been completely pleased - from cost to ease of use. It's a great screen - makes DVD watching great! Perfect for work and homework - easy to view an entire spreadsheet!

Speaker quality isn't the best, but like others, I didn't buy this for the speakers and kept my old ones installed. (It comes preset at a minimum setting and is hard to increase the volume to what you're used to.)

every thing
