Summary: ViewSonic claims that the VX1962wm has a viewing angle of 170° Horizontal and 150° Vertical. It didn't take long to see that the viewing angle was indeed a bit restrictive. When viewing from more than 20 - 30 degrees from the top or bottom, the image quality degraded quite quickly. While you can still see the image at a greater viewing angle - and likely up to 150 degrees, the quality is quite poor when viewed at more than 30° up or down = 60°.
Pros: Fast 2ms (gtg) / 5ms (bwb) response time, DVI and D-Sub inputs, Built-in speakers that work without rattle, Pivot Stand, High resolution for 19" wide display, Accurate color and good image quality
Cons: The last test I ran was to see how much power this monitor consumed. In comparison to larger displays such as the, 275T LCD, , this monitor is very eco-friendly. At maximum brightness it consumes ~37W and when adjusted properly with the Spyder it draws a mere ~27W. To get maximum brightness you'll burn an extra 37% more power., Low contrast ratio, Finish is very prone to scratches and finger prints, Priced similar to 22" displays
Excerpt: ViewSonic's 19in VX1962wm LCD monitor boasts a resolution of 1680x1050, which is normally reserved for 22in displays. Combined with a stylish design, good image quality and a reasonable price, this monitor is a good option for the home office.
