VP191B

 

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...

The ViewSonic VP191b's image quality is sufficient for basic office tasks, and it offers software and physical adjustments that are unexpected at this price.

Monitor sharing, physical adjustment abilities

Nothing in particular

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

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

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

ViewSonic VP191b

 

I purchased two of these monitors and use them side by side. The screen is easily raised or lowered to less than 1" from the desktop. Text and graphics image quality are as good as any 19" LDC monitor I have ever seen. No dead pixels on either...

Beautiful text and graphics

IF YOU ARE INTO ANYTHING 3D AND GAMING OR ANYTHING DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS MONITOR. I have used a KDS crt that is about 3 or 4 years old and when I switched and got this 19" lcd i was PISSED. Ghosting is terrible and it got all blurry. ALSO as...

I warn you never to look at this monitor when there are no lights on you might go blind. This monitor is almost TOO bright
