Viewsonic's VX2235vm wide aspect LCD
Fast response times but slightly low resolution
Viewsonic today announced a number of new LCD displays that target the sweet-spot 19-inch to 23-inch market,
and all of them at very affordable prices
. New to the scene is Viewsonic's VX1935wm, VX2035vm and VX223vm, ranging from 19-inches, 20-inches and 22-inches respectively. The screens are targetting at gaming and video users but Viewsonic says business uesrs can also benefit from all three screen's 5 milliseconds response time. The following are quick specifications for the screens:
Brightness: 280 nits
Brightness: 300 nits
Brightness: 300 nits
The odd screen out of the bunch is Viewsonic's 22-inch VX2235vm, which being two inches larger than the VX2035vm, should over more resolution. Other 22-inch and 23-inch screens from other manufacturers offer up to 1920x1200 resolution, which is even available on some notebook computer screens. According to Viewsonic:
All three displays offer more screen real-estate, helping business users increase productivity by managing multiple documents at once and providing gamers with more room to roam their richly detailed in-game surroundings or toggle on-screen menus. The VX2235wm, VX2035wm and VX1935wm also feature a newly designed thin bezel with integrated full-sound stereo speakers and power supply, helping users keep their desktops free of cable clutter.
Fast response times seem to be the primary focus for many of today's leading LCD manufacturers. More and more consumers are purchasing LCDs for movie watching, game playing as well as typical office work. All three displays from Viewsonic are available in gray or black and are priced at $199, $349 and $399 respectively.

Yes, 23" is usually the cutoff where it bumps to 1920x1200.
I'm not really sure what's new here, as there are many lcd's which claim 5ms response. These seem like typical resolutions and response times of recent monitors.
Price points are pretty unremarkable too. Slow news day?

I'm confused as well; how do these models differ from Viewsonic's existing 5ms (or better) models? New bezel?
There are currently 31 Viewsonic LCDs available at NewEgg.com. Do they really need more LCD models?

check out the video forum at AT
alot of these new 22 inchers are all using the same chi mei(or whatever they are called) 22inch LCD panels
5ms response, 700:1 contrast, 1680x1050 res
they are 6 bit TN panels, but they use a new Hi-FRC dithering technique to emulate 16.7million colours and apparently its quite hard to tell and is certainly alot better than the old 2x2 dithering used on older 6bit panels.
still 8bit S-IPS panels are the way to go for me.
