REVIEW: ViewSonic VX2255wmb Part 13
Scene from the video "Kanon 2006" in Xvid-MPEG 4 format.
Film scenes with background light, fog or dark passages are displayed very well but not perfectly: The TN panel demonstrates slight weaknesses here, which are probable due to its middling grey-level resolution.
Because of its moderate viewing angle stability, the VX2255wmb is less suitable for use in viewing films with a group pf people. Overall, we rate its performance in the area of DVD and video as good.
The ViewSonic VX2255wmb is a well-rounded 22-inch monitor and also features height adjustment unlike many of its counterparts, which greatly improves its ergonomic aspect. Additional features such as the webcam, the concealed speakers and the headphone connection are a bonus for gamers on particular.
These will constitute the main target group of this 22-inch monitor thanks to its excellent response time and very good interpolation – no wonder, since it is part of ViewSonic’s VX series, which is designed for gamers. The appealing, elegant high-gloss design is attractive but is also sensitive to fingerprints, dust and scratches. Users should avoid using rough cloths and harsh cleaning materials when cleaning it.
The subjective image quality is very good, but the LCD monitor demonstrates weaknesses in its coverage of the sRGB colour space and its mediocre viewing angle stability. Another negative point of our test monitor was the loudly whirring power unit when in standby and soft-off modes.
The focus of the ViewSonic VX2255wmb, priced at €350, is clearly in the area of gaming, where colour space and grey-level resolution are not critical and where the subjective image quality is important. The 22-inch monitor can also be used for office application and film play back. However, graphics artists should choose a monitor from the VP series if they are seeking a ViewSonic monitor.
Overall rating: GOOD
Technical specification: ViewSonic VX2255wmb
