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 review:

 

What's so unusual about the ViewSonic VP930b?

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 VP930 - 19in TFT Monitor

 

ViewSonic has updated its award winning VP monitor range, but does newer mean better?

ViewSonic VP930

 

Part of ViewSonic's professional range, the VP930 is a serious flat-panel for heavy-duty use in offices with big IT budgets, and this is reflected in its features and specifications. It's costly, and you can buy cheaper flat-panels with more...

The VP930 was built for very specific tasks, and with that price tag, it's not something most of us would be interested in buying. That said, what it does, it does very well. This will keep a lot of office professionals very happy indeed.
