In the market for a budget-price wide-screen LCD?

 

ViewSonic's VA1912wb offers a wider vista with a pleasant view, plus built-in speakers.

Wide-screen display with good overall image quality; decent-sounding built-in speakers.

Skimps on design and ergonomics; unusual native resolution may not be compatible with some games.

Though the 19-inch wide-screen ViewSonic VA1912wb looks modest, it packs a punch, with above-average performance, full-sounding built-in speakers, and a very sweet price.

PC Plus review: Viewsonic VA1912w

 

B all means consider this monitor. Just know that it's not the sensible money, high resolution, wide aspect, über-panel we've all been waiting for. And that's a shame.

Viewsonic VA1912w review

 

Like most of the displays in this group, Viewsonic's VA1912w has a silver surround and a black stand. It looks uninspiring but inoffensive. This model has been around for some time now, though, and its age is starting to show.

10+ years of ownership

 

I have owned this monitor since I bought my first computer back in, probably, 2004. I have used it almost continuously since then, with maybe a 2 year break when i didn't have a desktop, where it actually gathered dust in my closet. I got it out...

Good visual quality even without HDMI ; Probably cheap anymore ; Sturdy ; Amazing durability and lifespan

Brightness does not go very high, and has bad glare if not positioned correctly when sunlight is coming in. That being said, I did have this almost right by a large bay window streaming in afternoon light, and under normal circumstances it is not...

i purchased this unit back in 2004. It still works perfectly. Some 2 years ago capacitors went bad. I put a few new ones in (~10) and it's going strong as before

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good monitor, poor customer service

 

While I do like the monitor, I will never buy from ViewSonic again. Their policies are terrible, their customer support bordering on rude, and would not come to an acceptable solution.

The monitor is crisp, clean, arrived without any dead pixels, doesn't ghost and achieves pretty much everything you'd want from a monitor in at a fir price

The stand does not offer any adjustable height, just tilt. Prone to failure after 6-12 months where the screen blanks out, LED blinks green every second or so, and takes about 5 minutes to restore video. ViewSonic customer service has horrible...

Great for all...except RTS

 

This is my first LCD Monitor and overall I'm pretty impressed. I play a variety of games, RTS being my favorite. Unfortunately, not even this monitor's great response time is fast enough for enjoyable blur-free gaming with games such as Rise of...

bright ; one of the lowest response times around ; very crisp ; no dead pixels ; viewsonic quality ; nice to look at ; great for most games ; viewing angle

not fast enough response time for RTS (real time strategy) games for my liking
