ViewSonic VG930M Monitor


ViewSonic's $279 (as of January 12, 2007) VG930m is a good, utilitarian display, though it has some design quirks.

Tilts and swivels smoothly Includes built-in speakers

Does not pivot

Overall, the VG930m's strong representation of text makes it a good candidate for general office work

ViewSonic VP930b


A very steady stand keeps this model in place even while you fine-tune the many physical adjustments.

Excellent screen-adjustment software, Full range of physical adjustments

With a full range of physical adjustments and excellent screen adjustment software, it's a simple matter to get the ViewSonic VP 930b exactly the way you need it.

ViewSonic VP930b


As business LCD monitors go, the 19-inch ViewSonic VP930b doesn't stray far from the norm in its basic, boxy design. However, the VP930b offers useful color-calibration and asset-management software and tons of adjustability to fit nearly any ergonomic...

Highly adjustable; includes two VGA inputs and one DVI input; useful software included.

Poor grayscale and color performance; expensive for a 19-inch LCD monitor.

The ViewSonic VP930b is incredibly adjustable and includes great business-oriented software, but its steep price warrants much better performance.

Viewsonic VP930b


Viewsonic is one of the largest and best known manufacturers of CRT and TFT monitors. Viewsonic has a complete product line of TFT monitors, which includes a 19" monitor, the VP930b. We had the opportunity to test this monitor and present our thoughts...

The price of the monitor ranges from €420~€480 (excluding VAT), which indicates that it is aimed at the professional market. We feel that at a somewhat lower price, this LCD display could be a good choice.

ViewSonic VP930 LCD Monitor: The New Champion


It's happened. Much to our dismay, ViewSonic has pulled their VP191b monitor off the market. You can still find it in limited quantities, but at ...

Aside from that point, the ergonomics are exactly the same as on the VP191b. The panel has height and tilt adjustments, and the base swivels and has a height adjustment. In short, it really has everything, and it gets a perfect score in this department

ViewSonic VP930b


I read a couple of reviews in PC rags raving about this monitor, and I like ViewSonics generally. This monitor just sucks I'm afraid. If you were using it alone you might not notice just how bad it is, but aside an HP LP1965 and HP f1905, it's just...

Decent--but not great--text. Seems reliable. Great physical adjustments. Relatively nice looking simple black

ViewSonic VP930b


I began shopping for a monitor because the max resolution on my Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop is poor. I bought the ViewSonic VP930b after doing a lof of research. It was easy to set up and without any adjustment delivered sharp, bright images right from...

Sharp, bright, true colors

Quick start not perfect for laptop use

ViewSonic VP930b


I'm extremely pleased with this monitor. It is very bright, with a rated 1000:1 contrast ratio, quite high for an under $500 monitor. The default setting is actually too bright -- most users will probably want to tone it down unless you are working in...

Very bright, superb color, highly adjustable, rotatable

Pivot software is fussy

ViewSonic VP930b


My monitor worked perfectly for 7 months. Then one day it just stopped. Nothing - dead - At first I thought the PC had died. Then I realised that it was the monitor not working. No matter what I do I can not get even 1 pixel to light up. The power...

Great adjustability etc

It just stopped working

Defects-ridden Monitor


It was time to retire my trusty 4-year old 15" Samsung Syncmaster and I read lots of good things about Viewsonic, especially, their professional VP series.

Solid build, understated looks and great adjustability
