ViewSonic VX2240w

 

ViewSonic's VX2240w is unwatchable at its factory default setting—the screen's brightness is cranked beyond the point of acceptable image quality. Fortunately, we were able to tweak the display's settings to produce an image that was at least similar...

Lifelike flesh-tones; no banding issues; good color saturation

Changing among color-temperature settings sometimes destroys contrast; terrible factory defaults

When you change its color temperature, the VX2240w is sometimes unable to produce its full range of dark or light contrasts. This sucks the quality out of a normal picture, but flipping the display on and off brings back normal settings. Still, it’s...

Review: ViewSonic VX1940w 19″ Display

 

ViewSonic's VX1940w marks a new breed of LCD display. While the 19″ LCD has been around for years, we are finally at the point where it is smaller than what many buyers are looking for. The 1280×1024 resolution on 19″ LCDs-the same resolution used on...

Viewsonic's VX1940w monitor is a 19in LCD display that performs reasonably well without being particularly impressive. It did well in some tests, part...

Sharp picture, great response time, 1650x1080 resolution

Poor contrast, some colour issues

A solid 19in monitor, the Viewsonic VX1940w performs well in some areas, such as when handling fast motion, but also has a few contrast and colour issues.

ViewSonic VX1940w

 

If you want a 1,680 x 1,050 display but in a small frame, this 19in ViewSonic is the one for you.

This is all pretty straightforward stuff and though it doesn't standout in any real respect, it doesn't want for anything either. Moreover, ViewSonic has added a dynamic contrast mode, which allegedly boosts the Contrast Ratio to 3000:1, though as with...

Viewsonic VX1940w review

 

ViewSonic's VX1940w is the most expensive 19in screen in the group, but it has easily the best image quality of the four 19in displays.

ViewSonic VX2240W 22in monitor

 

If you want to see which advances have been most significant in the flat-panels market over the past 12 months, you need only to look to the increasing correlation between PCs and home entertainment. And while ViewSonic has wisely eschewed the move...

Like many a recent ViewSonic, the VX2240w is a decent screen. But it’s not one that’s going to garner Gold Award status. The Samsung SM2232BW is better on quality, while the LG L226WTQ offers more value for money. All of which leaves the VX2240w with...

Great picture and an impressively high resolution at a good price, but with few features

ViewSonic - VX2240w

 

There can be few IT markets as crowded as the one in which vendors compete to offer the ideal monitor for your PC. With the coming of HD to TV screens, DVDs and computer games, any ...

If you're moving up to HD viewing, and want a high resolution screen to watch DVDs and play high energy games with a top of the range graphics card, you could do a lot worse than this good quality monitor from ViewSonic.

Mismatch in the HCR test

Product Specifications

The display is the world's first 19-inch widescreen LCD to combine 1680x1050 super high resolution, ultra fast, up to 2ms response time (gray-to-gray) and up to 3000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio. The VX1940w has been specifically designed for passionate gamers and multimedia enthusiasts eager to enjoy the fastest games and movie action sequences with minimal distortion and industry leading image quality. The VX1940w offers multiple inputs, wide viewing angles and 300 nits of brightness - making it not only an ideal solution for gaming, but also perfect for viewing DVDs and performing traditional PC applications. The highest resolution available on a 19-inch widescreen LCD, combined with the Dynamic Contrast Ratio, provides users with crisp images, darker black levels and a higher contrast. In addition, DCR technology adjusts black levels based on screen content to reduce "light leakage" and improve performance up to four times greater than traditional contrast ratios, especially when viewed from the side.
