PC screens of this age and type have RMS rated audio powers of between 1W and 18W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.4W. With an RMS rated audio power of only 2 Watts, the Viewsonic VG2437 has a quite low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the VG2437.
Quite Slow Response Time
The fastest response time of flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than a year is 1ms and the slowest is 40ms. With a response time of 6.9 milliseconds, the Viewsonic VG2437 has one of the slower response times amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.
