ViewSonic VX900 review


ViewSonic VX900

Digital and analog inputs; very wide viewing angles; decent embedded speakers; good warranty and tech support.

Limited adjustability; has some problems displaying colors and grayscale.

The ViewSonic VX900 offers a host of connectivity options and image quality that will be good enough for the average home user's productivity tasks.

VX900 Speakers Dig/analog Tco-99


WHAT'S HOT: ViewSonic's $920, 19-inch VX900 monitor renders sharp text and sumptuous images. A wide viewing angle of 159 degrees (according to PC World's measurements) assures that you'll easily see images even if you're viewing the display from the...

19" VX900


The ViewSonic VX900 is a 19" flat-panel display housed in an attractive matte silver and black case with seven display-control buttons at the bottom center of the bezel.

The ViewSonic VX900's $799 price is one of the lowest in this roundup.

best LCD


I bought this monitor about a year ago, unfortunately not from newegg though. This monitor is amongst the clearest and brightest. It also has a better refresh than some.. I use it to play games like NFSU just fine

Outstanding picture


I bought this monitor late last year, and it has been great. Very nice, bright picture and no problems with dead pixels. The sound from the speakers is acceptable for my needs, but don't expect anything spectacular. The only complaint I would have...
