ViewSonic's E70f is a nice place to rest your eyes for $225. Its picture is flicker-free at 1,024 by 768 resolution (85Hz refresh rate) and remains fairly stable as high as 1,152 by 864 (75Hz refresh rate). In CNET Labs' line-resolution tests, the E70f's tiniest lines were clearly visible, and focus remained tight. Further testing revealed imperfections (stubborn moiré patterns and bowing along the edges of the picture), but the anomalies were typical and ultimately nondistracting.
The ViewSonic E70f's colors weren't as deeply saturated as those of higher-end models such as Eizo's FlexScan F520, but at half the price, they looked just fine. In the end, the E70f scored nearly as well as Samsung's SyncMaster 755DF, but the Samsung's geometric linearity was noticeably superior.
