ViewSonic Thin Widescreens
ViewSonic today started shipping three new widescreen computer displays that it says are built for both performance and space-sensitive users. The 22-inch VX2235wm, 20-inch VX2035wm, and 19-inch VX1935wm all come with a new housing that significantly reduces the bezel size, simplifying multi-display setups. The three new monitors also produce much less clutter by shipping with chin-mounted stereo speakers and an internal power supply, according to ViewSonic. Each has a 5ms response time touted as superior for games and movies. The displays are similarly bright, as the 19- and 22-inch models offer a 700:1 contrast ratio while the mid-range 20-inch LCD offers a higher 800:1 figure. ViewSonic ships the displays today for $199 (VX1935wm), $349 (VX2035wm), and $399 (VX2235wm).
