4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 2,061 owner and expert reviews, Viewsonic has good reviews for its PC displays. Viewsonic also has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Quite Fast Response Time

The response times of LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the VA2038W range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms. With a response time of only 5 milliseconds, the VA2038W has a quite fast response time compared to most of the other PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the VA2038W.

Chart Edit

Light

Medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago have weights of between 3g and 39kg. The Viewsonic VA2038W is quite light (only 3 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 472.8 millimeters, the Viewsonic VA2038W's width is one of the narrowest amongst PC monitors of this age and spec. Across all the PC displays of a comparable type and age to the VA2038W the widths range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other 472.8mm wide PC displays and we think because of it's better review score, the HP EliteDisplay E201[plb_2081997_price] is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The VA2038W does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been around for more than two years also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC displays of this age and type are not 3D compatible. The VA2038W is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

PC monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The VA2038W does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC displays of a similar spec and age to the VA2038W do not have an integrated card reader. The Viewsonic VA2038W is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at include the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of LCD screens that have been available for a comparable time to the VA2038W is 28cm, the biggest is 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 65cm. At only 51 centimeters, the VA2038W has a quite small display diagonal compared to most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the VA2038W.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

The VA2038W has one of the narrower vertical viewing angles (only 160 degrees) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. The vertical viewing angles of similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years range from 50° to 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
