6 Reasons For

Viewsonic PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors manufactured by Viewsonic have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all flatpanel monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Viewsonic also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has an Integrated Card Reader

The Viewsonic VSD224 has an integrated card reader, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the VSD224 do not have an integrated card reader.

Other LCD screens with an integrated card reader currently available that you might also want to consider include the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Camera

The Viewsonic VSD224 has a built-in camera, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VSD224 do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price], and the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the Philips 241B7QPJKEB[plb_3861282_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Viewsonic VSD224 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 530.4 millimeters, the Viewsonic VSD224 is quite narrow compared to most of the other recently released PC screens. Similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as the VSD224 have widths of between 370mm and 900mm.

Alternative flatpanel monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the DELL P2317H[plb_3412331_price] (531.8mm), the Acer R231[plb_3387419_price] (531mm), or the Viewsonic VX2376-smhd[plb_3670721_price] (531mm).

6 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The VSD224 is in the most expensive 20% of all 395 recently released similar spec flatpanel monitors that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the VSD224 will cost £70 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D Compatible

The Viewsonic VSD224 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the VSD224 are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on new medium monitors.
