ThinEdge VP912B Black 19" LCD Monitor


Admirable image quality, a bevy of features, and a reasonable price make this 19-inch LCD a winner.

Image quality remains pleasing on the ViewSonic VP912b's new antiglare screen--though the previous antireflective screen was even better--and this LCD is packed with useful features

VP912B Black 19


We retested ViewSonic'sVP912b because the company has replaced the antireflective screen included on the unit that PC World first tested with a new, antiglare screen. The first version remains the only recently tested 19-inch LCD to win Outstanding...

Aside from the screen, the new VP912 is identical to the old one. Dual-monitor users will appreciate the thin bezel, which minimizes the interruption between images. The height, swivel, and pivot adjustments let you set the monitor to the most...

ViewSonic VP912b


If you're a frequent computer user (and who isn't these days?), nothing changes your outlook like switching from a CRT to an LCD monitor. The advantages of LCDs over CRTs are plentiful. For starters, LCDs take up less space and are a lot lighter than...

Panel rotates to portrait mode. Stand includes height adjustment. Analog and digital connections

Average viewing-angle performance is not adequate for portrait mode. Weak on dark-gray shades. No autosync button

The VP912b has the specifications and features to make an attractive package, but the flawed image quality and other shortcomings detract from its appeal. It fails to compete effectively with other mid-price models.

ViewSonic VP912B - ViewSonic VP912b


Photo images really pop, thanks to the shiny coating on this 19-inch display from Viewsonic.

Shiny screen makes colors pop ; saturated colors ; can pivot ; built-in power supply

Colors a little blue at default settings

The VP912b's thin black bezel design can be tilted, raised, swiveled and pivoted. But its most impressive design feature is that glossy coating, which may seem like a small thing, but really gives onscreen images-particularly photos-greater depth. Most...

Great all around for the $$


I have two of these set up in a dual manner for my mac dual G5. I read all the editor and user reviews, and after using a week, agree with most of the raves and complaints.

Great monitor


This monitor replaced an aging Sony 17 sfII. My wife (who is not a computer person at all) walked in just after I set the monitor up and said WOW!!!! what a picture; the change was that drastic. The portrait feature is great for looking at EBOOKS,etc.,...

Picture really jumps at you

Takes a little time to optimize picture
