Viewsonic VX2255 WM


Viewsonic has been on a roll over the past year, with a rash of HD-ready monitor releases. The 22” segment has especially been getting a lot of focus, with a new model appearing virtually every month. The latest release in this lineup is the...

The VX2255 is another typical Viewsonic product. It offers a good balance of features (requires a fair bit of tweaking though); it's VFM at a price of Rs 19,995, and only loses points for its glossy body which is rather high-maintenance. So, despite...

Viewsonic VX2255wmb


The rated viewing-angle specification is also important, especially for users who want to watch movies, or coworkers who need to share what's on their screens. Measured from the center of the screen, the viewing angle is supposed to be the maximum...

Slick design. Built-in webcam. Good color quality

Speakers lack bass response. No USB or A/V ports. Some backlight bleeding

Sporting a high-gloss finish, sleek lines, and an integrated webcam, the ViewSonic VX2255wmb makes video conferencing a snap, but it could use a more powerful set of speakers and a few more connectivity ports.

ViewSonic VX2255wmb


The ViewSonic VX2255wmb sits squarely in the middle of ViewSonic's X Series line of consumer LCDs. ViewSonic lists a price of $411, but you can generally find the LCD online for $50 less, which is about average for a 22-inch LCD. Given the various...

Excellent image quality; integrated Webcam and microphone; headphone jack; base swivels 360 degrees.

Only DVI and VGA video inputs; no downstream USB ports; no height adjustment or pivot; base could be sturdier; glossy bezel prone to smudges and glare; brutally bad speakers.

The 22-inch ViewSonic VX2255wmb features a wide-screen display framed by a consumer-friendly, piano-black bezel, but it lacks the extra video ports consumers can rightfully expect to find on an LCD these days. Its image quality is excellent, however,...

ViewSonic VX2255wmb monitor Review and Prices


ViewSonic advertises the VX2255wmb as an "intensely entertaining widescreen" monitor designed for gamers, Internet users and movie buffs. That's quite a claim; can the VX2255wmb live up to the expectations it sets? Yes and no.

ViewSonic VX2255wmb 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor


Back in January at CES we first saw the VX2255wmb and I instantly wanted one. Its sleek design and integrated 1.3-megapixel really made it stand out from other monitors. Also the VX2255wmh version comes in a pearl white, which Mac fans will enjoy....

DONT LISTEN TO CNET'S REVIEW. first of all you can adjust the hight on the monitor. There is a locking pin on the back you have to take out. I dont know why they say you cant. How long did they use this monitor at all. Did they do there review in 2...

Webcam, Mic, adjustable height. Beautiful piano black finish

No HDMI input.

Consumer review by:

"Beautiful, flexible, incomplete Mac support"


I got this at the CompUSA slash-and-burn sale ($280 + tax). Contrary to review, is height adjustable. I was pleasantly surprised that the webcam works for the Mac over USB, but the Mic doesn't. Alas.

Sharp, bright, huge

Microphone not supported on Mac, no USB out

Consumer review by:

"Save your money and the headache"


While out of the Box the colors were acceptable for the average user, it does need color calibration. But beware. IF YOU USE A DEVICE THAT ATTACHES TO YOUR MONITOR SCREEN TO CALIBRATE, YOU VOID YOUR WARRANTY. I had a brand new one out of the box. color...

Big and Bright

Warranty Bogus

ViewSonic VX2255wmb


Very upscale display at a not to bad price, people are selling at for various prices, but 22" is the way to go, 19 is almost obsolete now. Watch TV with your TV Tuner card, do not need a second bedroom / office TV if you have good speakers with your PC...

Excellent Application that comes with the camera, 1.3 MP is best in the class, picture quality is best in the class, have'nt seen any backlight bleeding yet, built in mic, speakers, headset, doesnt get any better than this

cannot keep fingerprint/ wipe marks off the body, needs sturdier base (mabye metalic)
