ViewSonic VP950b

 

Once you've calibrated the colours the VP950b will deliver exceptional image quality.

Professional-grade colour gamut and performance, No-fuss corporate design, Landscape/portrait pivot feature, Excellent calibration software

Relatively low native resolution, Could be brighter

ViewSonic VP950b

 

Once you've calibrated the colours using the bundled PerfectSuite Plus software, the VP950b will deliver exceptional image quality. All that's left to consider is whether a 19in. display with a native resolution of 1,280 by 1,024 pixels is adequate for...

Viewsonic VP950b Review

 

We have been using the Viewsonic VP950b now for several days and so we thought it was time we post our thoughts about this 19" LCD, which is marketed for ...

The Viewsonic VP950b is a great screen, featuring out of the box vibrant colours. Its port placement and features could be better, but with the Perfect Suite software in place this screen offers good value for the quality on offer.

Defective Components, Poor Customer Service and Lengthy RMAs

 

Poor components are shipped and companies can correct these problems in a timely and consumer friendly manner. This said, Viewsonic does not appear to be one of these companies. In my case, RMA periods have been between 7 and 10 weeks, one RMA phone...

Adjustable stand, good physical appearances and acceptable color after calibration

I purchased 3 panels back in 2008 for a multi Monitor system and wanted to post an update on my Viewsonic ownership experience. At present, I am on my fourth RMA (i.e., all three plus a panel that was replaced in late 2009 failed a second time last...

Defective monitors, POOR customer service

 

To get an idea of just how many other people are having this problem with Viewsonic monitors, do a search of your model number and include words like problem, power, blinking, black, blank, etc. I found SEVERAL websites and blogs filled with the same...

nice for the short time it works

Same problem that hundreds or even thousands of Viewsonic owners are having with this and other Viewsonic models. All of the sudden, the screen blacks out and the power light goes blink blink blink and you have to spend 10-20 minutes doing all kinds of...

Decent picture quality when you can actually get a picture

I bought three of these for my company and the third one just failed last week. I looked like an idiot and I will NEVER buy garbage from Viewsonic again

Viewsonic isn't what they used to be.

 

I used to be a loyal Viewsonic customer. Due to poor quality and customer service lately, I've taken my business to Samsung. I'm very happy with my new monitors, which work flawlessly and actually have better picture quality.

Response time is quick

Viewsonic has been selling monitors with known defects and requires customers to pay the cost of shipping to return them for a repair or replacement, which carries no real guarantee anyway. More than one model version has a defect which prevents the...

Not as good as its predecessor

 

I received this monitor as a warranty replacement for a VP930b. IMHO, this monitor is not as good as its predecessor. Monitor is mainly used for CAD and engineering applications which use either black or white backgrounds so the fact that it is a lot...

Clear, bright colors - Nice for viewing photographs, movies, and gaming. I'm not a professional photographer or graphic artist so I can't really comment on color fidelity

Way too bright out of the box. Had to drop to 40% brightness to make tolerable. Noticeably uneven backlighting when screen has very dark or light image. Image dims noticeably when moving only small amounts from side to side and top to bottom ; Biggest...

Not a VP930b

 

Tilt and height are helpful for this kind of panel. Portrayal of cyborg uprising is unlikely in spite of price. Competition is having trouble matching the stand with value. Where are the 19.1 speakers?

Stand superior to VP930b except for ruffles. Power in middle works better. Horizontal view is fine. Pixels 0, bleed is minor top and bottom on black. Fine for dual display with same size or web etc

Oversaturated colors and angle suggests a MVA or more likely a TN, not a PVA or IPS panel. Makes my 930b look dingy (the way I like it for 24/7 work)
