ViewSonic VP2365wb review

£194.53 inc VAT

Manufacturer: ViewSonic

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The ViewSonic VP2365wb is an affordable monitor that provides a versatile, high-quality, 23in display that will be suitable for many businesses.

The ViewSonic VP2365wb is an affordable monitor that provides a versatile, high-quality, 23in display that will be suitable for many businesses.

The ViewSonic VP2365wb monitor’s design is fairly nondescript, intended for the office rather than the living room. A sharp black plastic border runs around the screen, and there’s a row of old-fashioned plastic buttons on the lower edge to provide access to the onscreen menu. However, Viewsonic hasn’t skimped on features that will be useful for professional users.

The screen has a tough, protective anti-glare coating that will appeal to designers, rather than the glossy, reflective finish that many manufacturers favour these days. The pedestal stand allows you to tilt and swivel the screen freely, and to adjust the height of the ViewSonic VP2365wb as well. You can also pivot the screen around into upright, portrait mode, which will be useful for page-layout and photo-editing work. Another useful feature is the four-port USB hub that’s situated at the back of the unit, right beside the DVI and VGA video connectors.

Despite the ViewSonic VP2365wb monitor’s relatively low cost, Viewsonic has still been able to use a high-quality IPS display that produces a bright, colourful image. The 1,920x1,080 resolution will allow you to play full HD video. The viewing angle is particularly good, with the image remaining bright and clear even at extreme angles, so it will be a good choice for presentations too. We were also pleased to see that Viewsonic was one of the few manufacturers that included a Mac version of its setup software, which can install the monitor’s colour profile and ColorSync files on to your PC.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

Admittedly, the VP2365wb doesn’t have the widest colour gamut, but it’s a match for any other monitor in the sub-£350 category. If you need a monitor for very fine photographic work, you should spend a bit more on the Eizo FlexScan SX2262W monitor, but the ViewSonic VP2365wb will be a fine choice for day-to-day design work.

    ViewSonic's VP2250wb is a decent consumer-level display, but its narrow viewing angle limits the display's usefulness in a collaborative setting.

    ViewSonic’s new professional-level 22in monitor has excellent colour reproduction but is let down by poor viewing angles

  • ViewSonic VP191s

    Long seen as a panacea for the ills of LCD technology, the reduction of response rates has recently been seized upon by manufacturers eager to give buyers a compelling reason to pick their screen. At least that's been the case in the 17in category, where such issues have long been settled. Move into the 19in arena, though, and ViewSonic could have an exciting product in the VP191s.
