First Look: ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED

2:40 /

The ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED is a thin LED monitor with pretty good performance and a rock-bottom price.

The best way to define value is cost versus reward, cost being price of course while reward isn't only device's usefulness necessarily, but how you feel at the end of the day about your purchase as well which not coincidentally will have a lot of to do with how much you pay. Hi, I'm Eric Franklin, and today we're taking a first look at the ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED The ViewSonic is a thin LED monitor that while devoid of those whistles like HDMI ports and DVI and VGA are included or ergonomic options. It has only a 30-degree back tilt cost under $200, which is like unsaid threshold that can really ignite the monitor's popularity with non enthusiast because it's cheap. The long connection options are somewhat difficult to access. Thanks to the placement of the foot stand, but the monitor is fairly light with good build quality although its food stand feels kind of clumsy, and although it's pretty wobbly, it's not like the topple over if not from the sides. You will it offers a decent assortment of options and includes several color temp presets and RGB controls. In movies, we saw good performance, but it a noticeable green push that can be diminished with a few adjustments. My biggest [unk] though are the black levels, which are pretty shallow. It prevents the image in having that nice high contrast look. In games, again, the vibrancy isn't to the level and there is some slight green favoritism, but overall, we were satisfied with this performance. The Viewsonic is a 24-inch monitor with a $200 price tag. Again, for some that's not said. Thankfully, also has decent performance OSD option. However, its black level is shallow and it has a hard time [unk] itself completely from green hue issues. Now, while is price is low, is the monitor worth it. Well, unless the lack of HDMI is a deal breaker or if you plan to do more than just general computing or live gaming movie watching you likely won't be disappointed. Just now that you're getting a pretty bare bones monitor with clear performance. Once again, this is Eric Franklin. This has been the first look at the ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED.
