ViewSonic VP201s

 

The ViewSonic VP201s is a big and beautiful 20-inch LCD monitor. The panel has a 1,600-by-1,200 native resolution that delivers an impressively fine image. And at $1,050 street, it's a good deal compared with other 20-inch displays.

High resolution. Portrait and landscape modes. Wide viewing angle

Some image-quality flaws. Limited documentation. No autosync button on front panel

The 20-inch ViewSonic VP201s is a big-screen high-res LCD with a low price for its size. It has some attractive features, but it also has some flaws that make it less appealing than some alternatives.

ViewSonic VP201b review: ViewSonic VP201b

 

Very thin bezel; highly adjustable; sharp picture with excellent contrast; includes USB 2.0 hub; HDTV compatible.

The image quality, while good, isn't the best of its class.

This high-end LCD gets an A for design, features, and adjustability, but its image quality falls a smidge short for the price.

Performance The VP201b's image quality is good overall, though it doesn't quite measure up to the caliber of ViewSonic's intended user. CNET Labs' test yielded nice, sharp text and high contrast, and we liked that tweaking the brightness and contrast...

DVI cables

 

Why use a DVI and a VGA..There are three types of cables:- DVI-A: Analog only DVI-D: Digital only DVI-I: Digital and Analog. You need to try a DVI-I .... Hope this helps! Love this monitor BTW. Got mine for free from a friend :)

It does not do my dishes ... LOL

replacement works perfectly

 

The manufacturer couldn't repair this model (failed back light is my guess)during the summer and sent a brand new one to replace the vp201b. I would recommend the warranty that Viewsonic offers to quick loan you one while the other one is being...

Some boot difficulties

 

This is the finest LCD monitor I have ever had for visual quality. But it has a quirk I haven't yet figured out. The first one simply wouldn't produce an image after four reboots of my machine. I RMA'd it and NewEgg had a new one at my door within...
