9 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This medium monitor received an expert rating of 76 out of 100 from gadgetspeak.com.

Good Brand

Viewsonic has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire LCD screen range.

Robust

One person who bought it mentioned that it was well made.

Recent Price Drop of £11.74

The VG2438 has dropped in price by £11.74 in the last couple of weeks.

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price], the Asus PB238[plb_2368528_price], or the iiyama XB2483HSU[plb_1611035_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Viewsonic VG2438 has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC screens of a similar spec and age to the VG2438 which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Viewsonic VX2770Smh[plb_1488620_price], and the AOC G2460[plb_1556076_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the LG 24EB23PY[plb_1497460_price] is also worth considering.
