Excerpt: We wouldn’t complain if we never had to review a cheap TN LCD panel ever again. Our experience with ViewSonic’s VP2365wb, on the other hand, has taught us we shouldn’t assume that the mere presence of an 8-bit IPS panel will ensure top-drawer performance. On the third hand, the fact that numerous online retailers are selling this monitor for just $300 renders it a solid value.
Pros: Eight-bit IPS panel; delivers 84 percent of the NTSC color gamut; inexpensive.
Conclusion: The Viewsonic VP2365wb had some tough competition coming in, as we had already reviewed the popular NEC EA231WMi and the new Dell U2311H in depth. We had some high expectations based on those reviews, and it was interesting to see how the Viewsonic equivalent faired. All in all I thought the performance of the VP2365wb was very good. Colour accuracy out of the box was very good, and once calibrated it offered some of the best performance we have seen.
Pros: Very good colour accuracy out of the box, excellent once calibrated, Good black depth and contrast ratio, Very competitive price in 23" IPS range
Cons: Strange functioning to the dynamic contrast ratio control, Some luminance uniformity issues, Response time not as good as RTC enabled screens
