ViewSonic VX2433wm review

£186.61 inc VAT

Manufacturer: ViewSonic

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

The ViewSonic VX2433wm is a widescreen, 24in LCD monitor made with multimedia in mind.

The ViewSonic VX2433wm is a widescreen, 24in LCD monitor made with multimedia in mind.

With its HDMI input, fast 2ms pixel response time, built-in speakers, and £201 price tag, the VX2433wm looks great on paper. Unfortunately, its fuzzy text and mediocre viewing angle keep it from looking as good when its sitting on your desk.

The matte-screened ViewSonic VX2433wm has a shiny black plastic bezel and stand. It offers no height adjustment, can't swivel, and lacks the ability to pivot - you can, however, tilt the display forward a back a little.

The ViewSonic VX2433wm offers three different inputs: HDMI, DVI and VGA (picture in picture is not supported). We used the DVI connection to connect to our 2.66GHz Mac Pro and the display automatically started up in its correct, native 1,920 by 1,080 resolution.

At its default settings the ViewSonic VX2433wm was overly bright, blowing out lighter images on the screen and making blacks look more like dark gray.

We got the ViewSonic VX2433wm to look better by cranking up the contrast a bit and reducing the brightness down from its 100 percent default setting to about 75 percent. The buttons are hidden on the side of the display, which give it a clean look, but makes it difficult to use the menus.

Once the ViewSonic VX2433wm was looking its best, it still only managed a Fair text legibility score, showing somewhat soft and blurry text when compared to other 24-inch monitors we've tested.

The ViewSonic VX2433wm's viewing angle also received middling scores, with a pronounced color shift when moving your head from right to left of centre when looking at the screen. The built-in speakers were of mediocre quality.

Those looking for an inexpensive 24in LCD display may be tempted by the ViewSonic VX2433wm's cheap price and impressive specifications. But with tinny sounding speakers, less than sharp text and pronounced colour shifts when viewing the screen off-angle, the VX2433wm will suit only the easiest to please.

    ViewSonic VX2250wm

    The sub-£150 flat-panel displays sector has been receiving plenty of new blood in recent months. The 21.5in ViewSonic VX2250wm takes most of the best bits from what's already there, and melds them into a quietly impressive little screen.

    ViewSonic VX1962wm

    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.

  • ViewSonic VX2260wm review

    ViewSonic VX2260wm

    With its Spartan styling and bland black and silver exterior, the 21.5in ViewSonic VX2260wm flatpanel monitor looks far from a showstopper. But appearances can be deceptive.

    ViewSonic VG1930wm 19in flat-panel display

    The ViewSonic VG1930wm is a widescreen monitor that runs at a native resolution of 1,440x900. It isn’t the most exciting-looking screen, but it makes up for this in terms of practicality.
