[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey, everyone. This is Eric Franklin, and today I'm gonna be moving my hands around a lot like this to convey my enthusiasm and excitement. We're taking a look at the 24-inch ViewSonic VG 2427wm. The main thing that struck upon first impressions was that this monitor feels hollow and brittle. Seriously, I would not want to be around if thing ever fell for fear of the ensuing shrapnel party that would surely follow. The screen height is adjustable, and the panel swivels 180 degrees, and tilts back 25 degrees. There is no pivot option, though. The circular foot stand measures about 10 inches in diameter. When the panel is extended to its highest point, the display wobbles a considerable amount when knocked from the sides, and dramatically less at its lowest point. So be careful because, you know, shrapnel party, not good. Connection options include DVI and VGA, but sadly no HDMI support. Next to the video ports are two USB downstream ports and one upstream. All the ports are fairly easily accessible. On the back of the stand are two vertically aligned hooks that hold the power and video cords to keep them neat and tidy. The stand is removable for mounting the display, VISA-style, on a wall, but you'll have to supply your own mount. The onscreen display is simple to navigate and includes the usual options for contrast, brightness, and color, but unfortunately, no preset options. We tested a ViewSonic and its DVI connections saw mostly good results. However, in movies, the colors did seem a bit washed out compared to other 24 inches we tested. It was a different story in games; however, as the games looked great, running at 1920 by 1080 resolution with vibrant colors. We saw no signs of input lag, blurring, or streaking during fast movement. In the power consumption tests, we found that the ViewSonic would cost about $12.00 a year to run in normal mode, and about $7.00 per year to run in the conserve eco mode. At it's slightly higher average asking price of $367.00, the ViewSonic VG2427wm has a good assortment of ergonomic options and great performance, but its asking price is just a bit too high to recommend. Check out our full review of the display at CNET.com. Once again, this is Eric Franklin. This has been a First Look at the ViewSonic VG2427wm. ^M00:02:17 [ Music ]
