10 Reasons For

Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

Viewsonic medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC displays Viewsonic is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Viewsonic VX2858 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the LG IPS231P is also worth considering.
