10 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The VA2046 is one of the most economic to run flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the VA2046 is only £29.

Good Picture Quality

One Viewsonic VA2046 reviewer who bought it reckoned that it had good picture quality. One person wrote in their reviews that the Viewsonic VA2046 had good colour saturation. M. Moore wrote in their review two years ago “Great colours” and gave it a score of 4 stars.

Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens

Viewsonic medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC monitors Viewsonic is one of the superior brands.

Reasonably Priced

One Viewsonic VA2046 owner mentioned in their reviews that the product was good value for money. Mr Neil Smith mentioned in his review of the Viewsonic VA2046 on Amazon “Arrived Quickly, easy set up, Picture Quality great, excellent item for the price” and scored it 5 stars.

Good Product Quality

One Viewsonic VA2046 owner who reviewed the product concluded that it was good quality.

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many PC screens that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think the AOC e2250Swdnk which has better reviews is also worth considering.
