ViewSonic VX2255wm

The ViewSonic VX2255wm is a 22” wide color TFT active matrix LCD monitor that has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels (WSXGA+). It features a slim piano black bezel design (a white one is also available) and has an overall measurement of 20.7 x 17.8 x 8.9 inches (W x H x D) and weight of 13.0 pounds. Without the stand, the monitor measures 20.7 x 10.5 x 2.35 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 10.2 pounds.

Display Features

The ViewSonic VX2255wm makes use of an S-TN panel. The 22-inch viewable display has a contrast ratio of 1000:1 (static) up to 4000:1 (dynamic) and has a brightness range of 400 cd/m2.

Other Features

The stand of the ViewSonic VX2255wm is not only height adjustable but it also allows for tilting the monitor in all directions. Its base is also designed to allow its users to rotate the monitor without having to move the stand itself. The monitor is also equipped with a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera which is capable of recording at a resolution of up to 1280 x 1024 at 9 frames per second. It also has a microphone for convenient videoconferencing.

Review Summary

The ViewSonic VX2255wmb 22-inch LCD features a DVI or a VGA port and a Webcam and integrated speakers. The ViewSonic, however has a limited amount of video ports, component, composite, and S-Video. The Webcam features a 1.3-megapixel resolution and with the tiny microphone to its right allows quick-and-easy Web conferencing. The Webcam software provides snapshots or video and adjust camera settings to fine-tune the image. The ViewSonic VX2255wmb is HDCP compliant, meaning that you can view copyrighted content on high-definition Blu-ray or HD DVD discs. The display's top resolution of 1,680x1,050, however, means you just miss 1080p output and must settle for 720p. It also features blue LED lights along the bottom of the right side of the screen, which serve as buttons to navigate the onscreen menu. The ViewSonic's onscreen menu is straightforward and easy to use, allowing adjustment to brightness, contrast, and color, as well as video input. The menu options are clearly labeled to aid navigation. Its middle two buttons let you adjust the volume. A convenient headphone jack resides just below the menu button. The monitor's base allows swiveling of the screen to 360 degrees. The stand offers 3 inches of height adjustment, and the monitor can be tilted forward a few degrees and back about 25 degrees however you can't pivot the screen into a portrait position. The display quality is sharp, screen uniformity, color, and grayscale performance are good and it performs well with DVDs and games. DVDs and Web pages and other images looked fine even in a pitch-black room. The 22-inch ViewSonic VX2255wmb features a wide-screen display framed by a consumer-friendly, black bezel, but it lacks the extra video ports one expects to find on an LCD these days. Its image quality is excellent, however, and it boasts a built-in Webcam and microphone.
