ViewSonic VX1962wm Review

Reviewboard Magazine
25 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Despite its good performance in games, smart design, and a high 1,680×1,050 resolution, we do not recommend the ViewSonic VX1962wm because Westinghouse has a 19-inch LCD that’s slightly cheaper and a better performer. A slightly blurry picture during DVD playback also detracts from the ViewSonic’s appeal, and we noticed a yellowish hue to the image while in the 6500K color temperature; switching to 9300K fixed the color hue problem.

ViewSonic VX1962wm - 19in Premium LCD

BCCHardware
30 April 2008
  • 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

ViewSonic VX1962wm review Review

CNET
13 November 2008
  • Summary: The ViewSonic VX1962wm LCD is a 19-inch LCD with decent performance, but a competing flat panel would offer a better image for less. We had trouble getting past the yellowish hue in some settings and the blurry images in DVDs, but found the menu simple and easily navigable
  • Pros: Sleek design, Good games performance in the 9300K colour temperature
  • Cons: Blurry images in DVD movies, Screen had odd yellowish hue under certain settings, Wobbly footstand

ViewSonic VX1962wm: 19-Zöller mit Schwächen

CNET
27 February 2009
  • Summary: Wer heute 150 Euro für einen 19-Zöller ausgibt, erwartet ein mängelfreies Gerät. Hier liegt das Problem des Viewsonic VX1962wm. Er überzeugt zwar durch seine hohe Auflösung und das gute Bild bei Spielen, aber Schwächen wie eine leichte Fleckenbildung, ein Gelbstich des Bildes bei einer eingestellten Farbtemperatur von 6500 Kelvin und ein zu geringer Blickwinkel vermiesen ihm das Gesamtergebnis.
  • Pros: schlichtes Design, gute Leistung bei Spielen im 9300K-Farbtemperatur-Modus, hohe Auflösung
  • Cons: fleckige Bilder bei Film-DVDs, seltsamer Gelbstich bei 6500K Farbtemperatur, wackliger Standfuß, geringer Blickwinkel
