The 22-inch market is one of the most saturated monitor segments right now with a lot of choice ranging from average entry-level monitors to models that support full HD and offer HDMI inputs as part of their package. While this kind of choice is never...

The very first thing did we did to test this LCD panel, was to check out its performance in games. Here the monitor with its 2ms response timing, simply sailed through our tests without issues. We tested it with COD 4, WoW: Wotlk, Crysis Warhead, and...

Let's get this out of the way first: the Wii's graphics look terrible compared with the competition. But within about a half hour of playing games on Nintendo's revolutionary Wii, you won't care. This new game console transcends visuals to deliver the...

Excellent small-text reproduction. Good color performance

Some tinting. Weak grayscale performance. Lacks multimedia connections

One of the few 19-inch widescreen displays to offer a 1,680-by-1,050-pixel resolution, the ViewSonic VX1962wm is a good choice for users who want a high-res display but don't have the room for a larger monitor. Performance was a mixed bag, but this...

ViewSonic VX1962wm Review

 

Despite its good performance in games, smart design, and a high 1,680x1,050 resolution, we do not recommend the ViewSonic VX1962wm because Westinghouse has a 19-inch LCD that's slightly cheaper and ...

ViewSonic VX1962wm

 

If you can overlook some of the performance issues, the ViewSonic VX1962wm is a perfectly adequate (albeit somewhat pricey) monitor for everyday use.

Nice design; built-in virtual surround-sound speakers; generally good performance; easy to set up

Some inconsistent performance quirks between analog and digital connections; unpolished OSD menu; speakers on the boomy side; slightly expensive for a 19-inch monitor

If proper color reproduction is important in your line of work, the VX1962wm may not deliver the results you need. For general use, however, the VX1962wm is more than sufficient. Despite the performance issues, it performed better than many budget...

ViewSonic VX1962wm 19-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor

 

Desk space, something we always want to have a lot of but the more gadgets we get the less space we have. Besides a case your monitor probably takes up the most space on your desk. With 22-inch and 24-inch monitors becoming the standard your desk space...

Elegant design, - Very slim, - 1680 x 1050 resolution on a 19-inch display, - 2ms response time

Stand does not swivel

The VX1962wm has to be one of the most elegant displays we have seen. The design and glossy finish really bring a lot of attention to the display. The VX1962wm is not all about looks though, it features a 2ms response time, 6000:1 contrast ratio, and...

ViewSonic VX1962wm - 19in Premium LCD

 

When I first heard about the ViewSonic VX1962wm LCD I was pretty interested as most 19" widescreen LCD monitors have a nasty resolution of 1440x900. At this resolution a 19" widescreen LCD has shorter vertical resolution than a 17" LCD and if you're...

Fast 2ms (gtg) / 5ms (bwb) response time ; DVI and D-Sub inputs ; Built-in speakers that work without rattle ; Pivot Stand ; High resolution for 19" wide display ; Accurate color and good image quality

Low contrast ratio ; Finish is very prone to scratches and finger prints ; Priced similar to 22" displays

ViewSonic claims that the VX1962wm has a viewing angle of 170° Horizontal and 150° Vertical. It didn't take long to see that the viewing angle was indeed a bit restrictive. When viewing from more than 20 - 30 degrees from the top or bottom, the image...

ViewSonic VX1962wm LCD monitor

 

ViewSonic's 19in VX1962wm LCD monitor boasts a resolution of 1680x1050, which is normally reserved for 22in displays. Combined with a stylish design, ...

Native resolution of 1680x1050, stylish design, clear and crisp image, excellent viewing angles

Bezel reflects office lighting, awkward button placement, stand isn't height adjustable

ViewSonic's VX1962wm 19in LCD monitor combines a stylish design with good image quality and a reasonable price, making it a decent option for the home office.

ViewSonic VX1962wm 19in LCD Monitor

 

If you're after an affordable high resolution 19in monitor, ViewSonic's VX1962wm should be shortlisted.

Aside from this one niggle, the visual design of the VX1962wm is very attractive. The base is a tapered oval shape, which in combination with the stripe reminds me of an American football, while the stand's leg is an incredibly slim rounded column.

The ViewSonic VX1962wm has a glossy black bezel, curved base and slim stand. The silver edging complements the bezel nicely, though we feel the thick silver line through the base detracts from the overall look and feel of the monitor. The bezel...

ViewSonic VX1962wm review

 

The ViewSonic VX1962wm LCD is a 19-inch LCD with decent performance, but a competing flat panel would offer a better image for less. We had trouble getting past the yellowish hue in some settings and the blurry images in DVDs, but found the menu simple...

Sleek design ; Good games performance in the 9300K colour temperature

Blurry images in DVD movies ; Screen had odd yellowish hue under certain settings ; Wobbly footstand

Conclusion Despite its good gaming performance, smart design, and high 1,680x1,050-pixel resolution, we do not recommend the ViewSonic VX1962wm. There are cheaper and better performers out there, and the slightly blurry picture during DVD playback...
