Summary: The price of the ViewSonic VP2365wb means the consumer gets a 23-inch E-IPS screen, above acceptable performance and also 5 USB ports. On the other hand, the level of brightness is not something of greatness. If you want better quality, try some alternatives. Like Dell’s SP2309W.
Conclusion: There’s no doubt that ViewSonic has cut some corners in the process of squeezing such a great IPS panel into a tight budget. But while you’ll miss out on the NEC’s DisplayPort input, brightness sensor and the slightly more robust stand, we’d hesitate to pay almost £100 more for the privilege.
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.
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
