First Look: Despite a wobbly stand, the Viewsonic VX2460H-LED succeeds thanks to its low price

1:30 /

The Viewsonic VX2460H-LED is a successful general purpose monitor with good performance and an incredibly wobbly stand.

The ViewSonic VX2460H-LED is a 24-inch monitor with a 1920x1080 resolution that cost $200. The foot stand is fairly wide and extends a bit towards the back but monitor's thin neck makes for a wobbly experience. It has a thin profile and an extra wide bezel and it tilts back a bit but includes no other ergonomic options. Connections include dual HDMI, a single VGA connection and one headphone jack. The OSD sits at the bottom of the bezel with brightness and contrast controls in addition to 5 color presets. Also, red, green and blue customization options are included. Performance in movies was good but the default settings have an over abundance of green and fine tune of the color was a challenge. Also, I could never get the picture to not look washed-out. The monitor uses a twisted-nematic panel. So, don't expect wide viewing angles. Games looked good but there's a lack of deep color saturation. While its performance isn't stellar and the build quality leaves a lot to be desired, a ViewSonic succeeds as a general purpose monitor. And at $200, it's quite the bargain. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been the first look at the ViewSonic VX2460H-LED.
