9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Viewsonic has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC monitor range compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of this age and spec.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VG2401 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Viewsonic VG2401 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including the LG IPS231P[plb_1766654_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Bright Display Brightness

At 350 candellas per square meter, the Viewsonic VG2401 has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago. Across all the flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the VG2401 the display brightness range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Audio Power

The Viewsonic VG2401 has one of the higher RMS rated audio powers (6 Watts) amongst PC displays of this age. Across all the PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.5W to 49W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.2W.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Has Three Cables Included

The Viewsonic VG2401 has a greater number of cables included than most comparable spec PC displays that have been available for more than two years. This Viewsonic LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that have been available for more than two years. The cables included "DVI" and "USB" are also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Across all the LCD screens of this age and spec the depths range from 12mm to 560mm, and the average depth is 110mm. With a depth of only 51.2 millimeters, the Viewsonic VG2401 is one of the shallower flatpanel monitors of this type and age amongst comparable spec PC screens of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Viewsonic VG2401 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port LCD screen. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the VG2401 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Viewsonic VG2401 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec PC screens that were launched more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age, the Viewsonic VG2401 does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price].
