ViewSonic VG2021m


The ViewSonic VG2021m is a great basic LCD for everyday use, but be warned that it offers fewer pixels than its 20-inch competitors.

Inexpensive; sleek design; full-sounding built-in speakers with amplifier; extended warranty options; unmarred grayscale performance; vivid colors.

Low resolution for a 20-inch monitor; limited flexibility; poorly labeled control panel buttons; lacks headphone jack; volume controls buried in OSM; ghosting and blurring evident in DVD video playback and games.

Compromises to resolution and features keep the cost wonderfully low, yet this remains a credible panel.

ViewSonic VG2021m


The CNET reviewer came up with some pretty strange numbers. Perhaps it was a Friday and he was in a hurry? The native resolution on this monitor is 1400 x 1050, not 1400 x 1550 or 1440 x 1050. I have no idea where he got those numbers from.

ViewSonic VG2021m


If you want a dual monitor setup, with limited funds this is the one. If you only need one monitor, it is reasonably priced, but on the low end for resolution. Not the best monitor for graphics, i.e. AutoCAD, Corel X4, etc.

Digital input, Good picture for the price

When they die they die, no warning

ViewSonic VG2021m


Went back to the store - I could not stand the high pitched noise. Shame, great monitor otherwise.

Great picture, no reason to buy 19" anymore

Noisy whining backlight

ViewSonic VG2021m


Nice monitor for the price. I use the digital mode. The speakers are lousy, so I kept my external speakers. My system seems to run faster. I put white paint into the setup ICONS at the bottom right of the monitor. The "1", up arrow, down arrow and "2"...

Digital output. Clear even at 85 DPI

Setup is confusing and hard to use

Great monitor for the money!


This is a great monitor for the money.

The only con that I can report is that the screen controls are a little cumbersome, but not a major issue due to the price / performance of this LCD screen.
