Excerpt: ViewSonic's VA2626wm struck us as being particularly ugly as soon as we unpacked it. The matt black bezel is plain enough, but the silver control panel underneath looks tacky. Even uglier are the ridges of cheap plastic all over the rest of the case, even on the stand. These not only look old-fashioned but also quickly picked up dust in the short time the VA2626wm was in our Labs. The poor design extends to the screen's tilt mechanism.
Summary: Having just finished the monster 28inch offering from Hanns-G this big unit seems almost normal in size. It has exactly the same resolution but instead of the notional 27.5inches diagonal measurement it is 25.5inches.
