3 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Viewsonic medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all PC screens manufactured by Viewsonic.

Quite Fast Response Time

At only 5 milliseconds, the VA2038W has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and type. The fastest response time of medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the VA2038W is 1ms and the slowest is 69ms.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest medium monitor that has been on the market for around the same time as the VA2038W is 3g weight, the heaviest is 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The Viewsonic VA2038W is quite light (only 3 kilograms) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the VA2038W.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The VA2038W does not have a built-in speaker(s), although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the iiyama XB2779QS-W1[plb_1954340_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The VA2038W is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other PC screens of this age and spec are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the VA2038W do not have a built-in camera. The Viewsonic VA2038W is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price].

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The VA2038W does not have a card reader integrated, although this is within the context that most of the other PC screens that are a similar age to the VA2038W also do not have a card reader integrated.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have a card reader integrated including the U3011[pl_1534149_price], the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL which also has a higher rating.

The smallest display diagonal (metric) of similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years is 28cm and the biggest is 590cm.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Viewing Angle, Vertical

Across all the medium monitors that have been available for more than two years the viewing angle, verticals range from 15° to 180°. With a viewing angle, vertical of only 160 degrees, the VA2038W has one of the narrower viewing angle, verticals amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Viewing Angle, Horizontal

The Viewsonic VA2038W has a fairly narrow viewing angle, horizontal (only 170 degrees) compared to most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and type to the VA2038W. The average viewing angle, horizontal of PC screens of this age and type is 170°.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

The display brightnesss of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the VA2038W range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 290 cd/m².
