Once you see the size of the packaging the ViewSonic VP231wb comes in, it’s not hard to guess that you’re in for huge display. After unpacking and setting it up, the first thought to come to our minds was: "Wow, this thing is enormous!" In this review, we want to elaborate on the experiences we gathered working on the impressive 23 inch Viewsonic VP231wb.

The ViewSonic VP231wb belongs to the category of widescreen displays and sports a native resolution of 1.920 x 1.200 pixels. Accordingly, the aspect ratio is 16:10. The VP231wb incorporates an S-IPS panel by LG Philips whose response time is specified to be 16 ms for black/white shifts and 12 ms for grey-to-grey shifts. According to the panel specifications, the ViewSonic VP231wb could best be classified as an all-rounder which should basically make it suitable for any kind of PC application.

All results issued in this review have been established using the digital input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which have been established on the analog input. Our test bed ran with a Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2600 Golden Sample and a Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card.

Scope of supply

Along with the ViewSonic VP231wb comes a short manual, a CD, pivot software called PerfectPortrait, a DVI-D cable, a D-Sub cable and an external power supply unit. Besides a monitor driver, the CD included also contains a detailed user manual as PDF document.
