ViewSonic VX2435wm

The ViewSonic VX2435wm is a 24” wide color TFT active matrix LCD monitor with an optimum resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (WUXGA). It comes with a slim bezel design with a piano black finish. It also features two integrated rear-facing 3-watt speakers. With the stand, the monitor measures 22.5 x 20.1 x 9.6 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 17.6 pounds but without it, it measures 22.5 x 16.5 x 3.6 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 14.7 pounds. The stand’s height cannot be adjusted and it only has forward and backward tilt functions. It does, however, have standard VESA hole configurations for wall mounting.

Although it does not support DVI connectivity, the monitor comes with a DVI to HDMI cable that can be used for conversion.

Review Summary

The Viewsonic VX2435WM LCD Monitor 24” has a contrast ratio of 1000:1, response time 8ms and an excellent 500 cd/m2 brightness rating. There are also HDCP compliant HDMI port, Component, S.Video, Composite, D.Sub, 3.5mm Audio jack for internal speakers and a DVI to HDMI cable for a digital connection. The monitor provides connectivity for PC, Xbox360, PS3 and the absence of A DVI port is rather curious. The lack of any USB hub is a little disappointing. The Viewsonic VX2435WM has superior built-in speakers. All the connections are grouped vertically at the back and covered by a massive plastic backing. The way the connections are arranged makes it possible to feed the cables down easily into the cable tidies on the back of the stand. But there are problems. The HDMI port has been placed right in a corner and can be quite a hassle to access. Also the back panel is exceedingly large and is awkward to remove. The most disappointing aspect of the design is the lack of adjustability. On the other hand the Viewsonic VX2435WM features a good selection of colour configurations, allowing adjustments of Colour, Brightness, Contrast and Colour Warmth with sRGB, 9300, 7500K, 6500K and 5400K settings available. OpticColour modes are available. Playing Back HD is suitably impressive, visuals are sharp, colourful and action is smooth. For gaming the performance is particularly good, no banding, descent colour reproduction and smooth during faster sections of the game with no signs of ghosting. Going through the Display Mate tests the VX2435wm performed very well indeed. Colour reproduction is very impressive, producing good results in the Colour Tracking and Colour Scale tests, particularly in the high and low end of the spectrum. There was some evidence of compression in some of mid-range colours where the difference in tone is very subtle, but nothing very serious.
