Excerpt: ViewSonic VP2365wb Review Manufacturer: ViewSonic UK price (as reviewed): £219.98 (inc VAT) US price (as reviewed): $289.99 (ex tax) We all know you can save money by overclocking a budget-priced processor or mid-priced graphics card, but there’s no way to obtain better performance from a monitor.
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.
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.
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
