14 Reasons For
Very Low Running Costs
Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the VG2239 will cost only £33 over 5 years to run, which is in the cheapest 10% of all 505 flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age.
Good Product Quality
Several Viewsonic VG2239 reviewers concluded that the product was good quality. A few weeks ago Daveb wrote on Amazon “Great picture quality” in their review. Daveb also said “An excellent monitor with good picture quality - sound is nothing spectacular.”. Daveb also mentioned “The picture quality was well below acceptable standards - unsharp & with colours bleeding over into one another; the problem was solved by using VGA”.
Good Picture Quality

+9 More reasons for
One Viewsonic VG2239 owner who bought the product mentioned that it was a bargain for the price. This year Daveb mentioned in their review “Better than the cheap speakers I was using before & adequate for what I use the computer for”.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a similar age to it.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think the Asus VE248HR[plb_3069904_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq GW2470H[plb_3034988_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Viewsonic VG2239 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the VG2239 also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the iiyama XB2283HSU-B1DP[plb_3049708_price].
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the iiyama XB2481HS-B1[plb_2779210_price], or the Philips 247E6QDAD[plb_3021428_price].
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on PC monitors of this spec and age.
Has Five Cables Included
The Viewsonic VG2239 has a greater number of cables included than most LCD screens that have been available for more than a year. This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for more than a year. The cables included "Audio (3.5mm)", "DisplayPort", "USB" and "VGA" are also found on this PC screen.
At only 3.3 kilograms, the Viewsonic VG2239 is quite light compared to most of the other PC monitors of this type and age. Across all the PC displays of this age and type the weights range from 2.3g to 79kg.
The average width of medium monitors that have been available for more than a year is 590mm, and the widths range from 340mm to 960mm. With a width of only 512.4 millimeters, the Viewsonic VG2239 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released one year ago.
If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might also want to look at the LG 22MP47[plb_2767865_price] (508mm), or the Neovo LE-22[plb_2736261_price] (509.6mm).
The shortest similar spec flatpanel monitor that has been on the market for more than a year is 28mm tall, the tallest is 930mm, and the average height is 360mm. At only 304.4 millimeters, the Viewsonic VG2239 is fairly short compared to most of the other PC displays of this spec and age.
9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Viewsonic VG2239 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the VG2239 also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price], or the Viewsonic VG2437[plb_2780335_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Viewsonic VG2239 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched more than a year ago are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Viewsonic VG2239 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that were released more than a year ago also do not have an integrated card reader.
Quite Small Viewable Height
The average viewable height of PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the VG2239 is 320mm. At only 266.7 millimeters, the Viewsonic VG2239 has a very small viewable height compared to most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the VG2239.
