Viewsonic VX2835WM


We review Viewsonic's biggest monitor till date... and find it to be an impressive effort.

Monsoon Multimedia Hava Wireless HD


Is Sling about to be outslung? We like to reward innovation, and there's no question that Sling Media popularized the concept of location-shifting TV with the original Slingbox. In fact, we awarded the new Slingbox Pro a nine verdict in our February...

Component video input and pass-through; slick multicast and PVR features

Setup can be complicated and awkward; only one IR blaster port

But when you’re talking about being able to watch TV anywhere, there’s nothing quite like watching a ballgame on your smart phone, and that’s where Sling still has a major edge: Monsoon demonstrated this feature for us, but the software wasn’t...

Viewsonic VX2035WM


We get rough and heavy with Viewsonic's VX2035WM 20-inch LCD monitor. Where's the HDCP, guys?

Decent overall performance

Blotchy backlight; lacks ergo adjustments

If you’re planning to upgrade to an HD DVD or Blu-ray drive in the near future, the VX2035wm might not be the best choice of monitor, as it lacks support for HDCP (high-definition copy protection). This means your efforts to play commercial HD discs...

ViewSonic VX2835wm


Everyone wants a bigger monitor these days. 19 inches just doesn't cut it anymore, to say nothing of the long-supplanted 17-inch standard. Those 22- and 24-inch screens are so last-year, and the new hot models are the "tweeners" that sit between the...

Great price. Component and composite inputs. Comes with DVI-to-HDMI cable. Very bright.

HDMI input is poorly placed. Gamma curve is off. No USB ports or side inputs. Lackluster on-screen display menus.

This is by far the most affordable 28-inch PC monitor we've seen, but it performs like it, too.

A good--but expensive--choice for users seeking an attractive 22-inch display for work and play.

Mass Media Transit


Like Sling Media's Slingbox Pro, Monsoon Multimedia's Hava Wireless HD lets you watch your television on any broadband-connected PC, anywhere in the world. The Hava differs from the Slingbox, however, in two ways. First, the device functions as a TV...

Puts your television on any broadband-connected PC. Works with Windows Media Center's DVR functionality. Connects wirelessly to home networks. Decent video quality.

Interference from other wireless networks and/or WEP encryption can cause freezes and signal dropouts. Only supports WEP wireless security. Software not ready for prime time. Windows XP-only (Mac and mobile versions on the way). HD input doesn't work yet.

The Monsoon Multimedia Hava Wireless HD's wireless connectivity and Media Center recording ability make it more convenient than the Slingbox-but only if you can deal with its major shortcomings.

ViewSonic VX2235wm 22" Monitor


Design The overall design of the Viewsonic VX2235wm is attractive, distinguished by its glossy black finish. While we liked the look, we had a few quibbles with its overall usability. The adjustments options are lacking; while the panel can tilt...

Relatively inexpensive; built-in speakers; stylish design.

Mediocre performance; height not fully adjustable; limited video connectivity.

The Viewsonic VX2235wm isn't the best performer and it's not packed with extras, but it's worth a look, thanks to its size and relatively low price.

ViewSonic VX2835wm monitor Review and Prices


We can sum up the ViewSonic VX2835wm in a single word: big. It's also budget-friendly, although it's not necessarily a good value.

Large display, fast response time, good selection of video inputs

Poor stand design, limited adjustment options, poor color accuracy

ViewSonic VX2235wm-5 LCD Monitor -


Housed in a sleek glossy exterior is the 22-inch Viewsonic VX2235wm-5 whose slim frame belies its powerful performance. Promising an ultra-fast 2ms panel response time and a 4000:1 contrast ratio, we got our hands on one to see if it delivers.

Product Specifications

The full 22" screen with high 1680X1050 resolution allows for broader viewing and enhances productivity because it lets you work in two applications side by side without toggling. The ultra-fast 2ms video response time ensures true performance with smooth display for watching movies or playing video games. Combined, these features enable digital HD broadcast-quality full motion video so that you can be one of the first to experience high definition television! ViewSonic's OptiColor true color technology comes with 7 sets of default color adjust modules, always allowing optimum display without a complicated memory setup process. OptiSync combines analog/digital input interface, connects to numerous multimedia playing devices, and displays both analog and digital signals in clear, crisp images.
