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:

VX2235vm
Size: 22-inch
Resolution: 1680x1050
Brightness: 280 nits
Contrast: 700:1

VX2035vm
Size: 20-inch
Resolution: 1680x1050
Brightness: 300 nits
Contrast: 800:1

VX1935vm
Size: 19-inch
Resolution: 1440x900
Brightness: 300 nits
Contrast: 700:1

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.

I currently own a ViewSonic 22" LCD, which I recently purchased at Costco for $299 a few weeks ago. I'm very happy with it. I have hooked it up to both a Mac and a PC. The only issue I had with it was the DVI didn't work good with the G4 Mac Mini, had to use the VGA cable for it. Other than that - it's a great monitor for a great price. The highest resolution it will support is 1680x1050.

I've played some of the HD videos from Apple's HD Quicktime video site: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/guide/hd/ and they look fantastic on this monitor.
