ViewSonic VG2030wm

 

ViewSonic's 20-inch VG2030wm wide-screen LCD monitor compares well against similar displays we've seen from the likes of HP and NEC . And also like the NEC, it lacks HDCP compliance, making it unable to play protected HD video content. With a price tag...

Unique, swiveling stand gives you more adjustability than other LCDs in its class; mostly strong performance; thorough service and support coverage

No HDCP-compliance; irritating onscreen display; especially bad audio output; expensive

Even if you don't care that ViewSonic's VG2030wm lacks HD DVD or Blu-ray support, we can't give this LCD monitor a strong recommendation simply because there are too many better, more capable displays on the market for the same price. Its image quality...

With their slim-line frames and sober styling, some flat-panels are born to melt into the background. Others, though, are more like the ViewSonic VG2030wm.

A pretty high-quality 20in screen for £270 represents good value for money. The ViewSonic's looks won't be to everybody's taste, but this is a very decent model that packs in plenty of colour and a sizeable work area.

Decent speakers and design, but the LG is better value.

It isn't all good news, though: the OSD control buttons are minuscule and bunched together on the right-hand side. Even those with the smallest of digits will struggle not to push two at once

Taking this monitor out of the box, we were almost fooled into thinking it wasn't a widescreen model at all, as there's a large chunk of plastic at the bottom of the monitor that squares it off.

ViewSonic VG2030wm - flat-panel display - TFT - 20

 

I bought this monitor over a year ago, when I bought it for editing a low-budget film (FCP, Powerbook G4 1.67GHz, Firewire drives). I used it for the film for a couple of weeks before I took a paying job at a studio, and since then I've used it...

Bright, vivid, affordable, adjustable

Irritating noise, intermittent dropping of signal, too-bright LED power button

Highly recommended for games and text

 

Bought this last week with my new PC. Rome Total War and F.E.A.R. looked great on it, even with the resolution cranked up. MS Word looks fine in 1680 x 1050 mode too. Text is sharp and clear. Only gripe would be removing the pin to allow the screen to...

clear image, refresh good for games

Nothing really
