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


This 19-inch LCD 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.

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.

ViewSonic VP912b


This display's design lacks panache, but its bright images are nice for an LCD.

Highly adjustable; extreme brightness makes games and graphics sing; eye-catching, full-featured OSM.

Extrashiny screen surface causes lots of glare; flimsy cable holders.

Casual gamers and graphic designers will like this overall solid LCD.

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...

This monitor will make your life easier! You get what you pay for when it comes to monitors and this is certainly no exception to that rule. Not to expensive, but more money then other 19" LCD's out there. However, the 12ms response time and...

Just received mine today. Beautiful LCD!!! No dead, lit, or colored pixels! Very sharp and VERY bright! Had to turn brightness below 50%, no more "dark" games for me. No ghosting noticed! Awesome monitor for the price!
