REVIEW: ViewSonic VX1940w Part 15
For a retail price of about € 210.00, you will not get a faster monitor with a resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels today. The ViewSonic VX1940w offers as much usable image surface as a 22-inch monitor, but only takes up a small amount of space on your table by comparison.
The robustly made model, weighing 4,6 kilograms, is suitable for all who participate regularly in network parties. Here, the lightweight plays out its absolute strengths.
The ViewSonic VX1940w is a textbook gamer’s monitor and combines a fast response time with lag-free image output for unspoiled gaming enjoyment. Furthermore, thanks to the ultra-fine resolution with a pixel pitch of 0.243 mm provides very good interpolation. The 19-inch model reproduces 4:3 resolution in justified format if required.
The image quality is good and the model performs especially well in correctly reproducing the sRGB standard colour space. In terms of brightness distribution, there is room for improvement, although subjectively no clouds or bright image corners can be seen. Especially in dark environments, a 0,5 cm wide bright stripe is visible can be seen on the lower edge of the picture.
One flaw that we literally don’t want to hush up is the deep singing tone that out test model makes when the brightness of the LCD monitor is reduced to below 100 and which is still audible at a normal sitting distance in a quiet environment. This is irritating and as a result, the monitor lost two marks for the otherwise very good manufacturing quality. ViewSonic has informed us that it will investigate the problem.
Overall rating: GOOD
