A 19-inch widescreen monitor instead of a 22-inch model and with the same usable image surface? ViewSonic is making it possible and, with the VX1940w, is offering a 19-inch model with a native resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels.

The extremely fine pixel structure should please gamers in particular. The fast response time of 2 ms and the option to display 4:3 resolutions in justified format show that ViewSonic is homing in on this target group.

Compact packaging – the postman will be pleased and we are excited about what awaits us inside the box.

Battlefield and Co. can thus be played in 1,024 x 768 without annoying image distortion. The question remains: how well is the pixel speed-up adjusted on the VX1940w to ensure that gaming enjoyment is not spoiled by streaking, corona effects or input lags.

We have taken a close look at the 19-inch model, running the LCD monitor with an XFX 8800GTS Extreme. Apart from the analogue image stability, we tested the monitor on a digital DVI input.
