Expert review by:



ViewSonic's venerable VP191b, retested for PC World's July 2005 issue, continues to hold its own against newer models. Its image quality is competent but not extraordinarily good, falling into the middle ranks of current models. We found the display's...

Full range of physical adjustments Pivoting software included

Image quality acceptable, but not great

A few features set the VP191b apart from other monitors in its price range and help make it a good choice for an office setting. This monitor includes ports for one digital and two analog inputs, giving you options for sharing the monitor between two...

VP191b 19-inch Black LCD Monitor


Includes one digital and two analog inputs; base pivots and telescopes; display tilts and rotates; Mac and PC compatible.

A little pricey compared with the competition; base design makes unit a bit deep.

The VP191b has almost everything we look for in an LCD, but graphics pros will expect better performance for the price.

ViewSonic VP191b


Don't believe PC World on this one, they obviously reviewed a different monitor (for instance, the vp191b has no USB hub). This is a fantastic monitor, one of the best on the market. Unless you've got the money for a true professional display like a...

Incredible color display, this is a true 8-bit panel. Also, but for the few 4 and 5ms displays out there, this is the best response time available

Needs a gamma adjustment (reduction) to prevent looking washed out

VP191b 19-inch Black LCD Monitor


I have always used a CRT as I play high end games like Half Life 2 and Star Wars Battlefield and lots of racing games. I read the first review here that stated not to buy this monitor for games. That is total nonsense. I see no ghosting at all playing...

Fast, Bright and Clear. Great for Gaming and DVDs

A bit pricey, but worth it

Consumer review by:

VP191b 19-inch Black LCD Monitor


This monitor has been a dream to use, the response time in games is pretty darn good, there's is very little ghosting noticeable (unless you really strain to see it) DVD playback is a little disappointing; there is a noticeable "sparkle" effect at times.

great contrast and brightness and minimal ghosting

maybe a little too bright at default,, movie quality is a little dodgy

ViewSonic VP191b


This is my first lcd and I have to say that I'm impressed! The monitor is of high quality and certainly blows my old 19" crt away. The image is very sharp with good colors.

Great colors, very sharp image, great adjustability

ViewSonic VP191b


I've got four of these at the office. All four are being used by engineers and we are all very happy with them. I highly recommend them for office use. Home use is a different matter however. Ghosting is slightly evident while watching movies and...

2D clarity and crispness, height is adjustable, large viewing angle, multiple inputs can be switched between easily

Response time

Nice looking monitor on the desk with all the reliability and quality of Viewsonic. A cutting edge product
