9 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Good

Based on 7 owner reviews this PC display has an average owner rating of 86 out of 100.

Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

We checked 2,061 owner and expert reviews for Viewsonic flatpanel monitors and found that on average Viewsonic has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Viewsonic has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors.

Good Picture Quality

One Viewsonic VG2239M reviewer who reviewed the Viewsonic VG2239M concluded that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One person who purchased the product concluded that it was good quality. Last year Paul D. Mccredie said “The image quality is certainly adequate at the resolution used (1280 x 768”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The VG2239M has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age which do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including the Philips 221B6 (£159.97) which is cheaper; or the HP ProDisplay P221 (£129.99) which has better reviews.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the NEC AccuSync AS222 (£124.99) is also worth considering.

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to it.

Alternative PC screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Samsung S22B300 (511mm and cheaper).

Light

Across all the medium monitors that have been available for more than two years the weights range from 3g to 39kg. At only 3.2 kilograms, the Viewsonic VG2239M is fairly light compared to most of the other PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the VG2239M.

5 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One customer wrote in their reviews that it did not have good sound quality. Paul D. Mccredie rated the product 60 out of 100 and he mentioned on Amazon “The sound quality is so awful, that I have gone back to using my old speakers”.

Not 3D Compatible

The Viewsonic VG2239M is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the VG2239M are also not 3D compatible.

PC monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the HP LP2065 (£110.40) which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the Asus VK228H (£137.23) is also worth considering.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LCD Display and we think the Benq BL2211 (£117.03), and the HP ProDisplay P221 (£129.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
