What is a LED monitor?

The term "LED monitor" generally refers to a monitor with a LCD panel and a LED backlight. A typical LCD monitor uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) as a light source to illuminate the LCD panel. In a LED backlit monitor, white LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used as the light source. Environmentally-friendly LED backlights provide the following benefits:

  • Up to 50%* less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • Mega dynamic contrast ratios. Provider deeper blacks and richer colors.
  • Environmentally-friendly mercury-free backlight
  • Low EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference)
  • Slimmer design
  • Weight reduction
Save Cash and Save the Planet

With its mercury-free backlight and low energy consumption, the ENERGY STAR 5.0 certified VA1912a-LED is not only environmentally friendly but also friendly on your electricity bill as well. This can add up to thousands of dollars saved for large install bases, such as big corporate buildings or schools, the savings can be as dramatic as $20,000* in five years!

10,000,000:1 MEGA Dynamic Contrast Ratio

One of the great features of VA1912a-LED is its ability to dim the backlight completely for pure darkness during dark scenes such as a night shot in a movie. Contrast ratios refer to the ratio of the brightest color to the darkest color. With traditional CCFL backlit displays, contrast ratios are limited to the fluorescent lamp’s ability to dim in order to reproduce darkness. However, with the LED backlight, each LED has the ability to completely shut off allowing for a near infinite ratio of black to white contrast. The end result is true blacks that result in greater overall image quality.

Pair it with a ViewSonic or Mac computer

One of the key advantages of the VA1912a-LED monitor is its diverse connectivity options, making it flexible to be paired with a PC or a Mac computer. Now you can hook up any Viewsonic PC as well as a MacBook or a Mac Mini to the VA1912a-LED and enjoy a full 19" (18.5" viewable) widescreen with LED backlight!

VESA mountable

The VA1912a-LED features a 100 x 100 mm VESA mountable design that allows you to mount it on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. You can detach the base easily by unscrewing four screws and then mounting the display on its new stand or wall mount.

Eco-mode for up to 50%* energy savings

ViewSonic's proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VA1912a-LED. When you don't need all of the powerful features the VA1912a-LED has to offer, you have the option to reduce the monitor's brightness, save energy, save the planet and prolong the lamp life. You can select one of the "Optimize" or "Conserve" options and save up to 50%* energy. Especially under low ambient light conditions, adjusting the brightness will improve visibility by reducing eye fatigue. Reducing brightness will also prolong the monitor's lamp life, improving your return on investment. *Energy savings may vary based on actual usage and other factors.

Industry leading pixel performance guarantee and 3-year limited warranty

One of the aspects that make ViewSonic a market leader in displays is its commitment to quality. LCD panels are produced in factories and as everything else, they may have flaws too. One of the flaws of an LCD panel is a dead pixel, bright or dark. Some panels will have no dead pixels while others will have one or two or more. When LCD display manufacturers build their monitors, they will have the option to use different grade panels with different tolerance levels for numbers of dead pixels. ViewSonic is committed to use the highest grade panels and offer the best pixel performance policy in the market. We also back our displays with 3-year limited warranty for your peace of mind.

The picture is clear and crisp with good resolution.

The monitor itself is great - was advised by computer techs that ViewSonic is one of the best.

IF I send it back, the company will only give me 50% refund because it is over 30 days.

Select Manual Image Adjust and reduce the image width so it exactly fills the image area. The automatic setting overscanned the image area resulting in poor/primative looking text. After spending many hours in the Win7 Control Panel adjusting Clear Type text, trying different screen resolutions, and so forth, I tried the display's manual settings and it was a miracle, everything is now sharp and clear after making that adjustment. I rate this product three stars because there should have been something in the instructions about the critically of this adjustment.

Let me start by saying that for the price, this is a great product. However the "you get what you pay for" is certainly true.

Pros
Great screen, and the right dimensions for a windows 7 computer to display correctly! (This is rather important. Sometimes these cheaper monitors don't have the correct display resolution, and everything looks odd. Not with this one)
Packaged extremely well
Very simple setup and use

Cons
The stand only connects with the display with a very cheap, plastic feeling. No screws (which I worry about) only plastic connector
The stand is also very light, making me worried the screen would over power it, but no falls so far.

As I said above, for the price you are getting an amazing screen. Just be aware that the stand does not feel sturdy, and for peace of mind you might want to add a little more weight.

I have not one thing negative to say about this monitor. I needed something that was moderately sized with good visual quality. I am not a graphic designer but I do spend about 16 hours in from of my computers each day (I work from home and am a full-time student) and this is perfect for my purposes. I did spend the extra time to thoroughly calibrate the monitor, but it was well worth it. The display is excellent, sharp, bright, and responsive. It also mounts very handily onto a swivel/tilt wall mount that I picked up - really it is perfect for my needs. I also have watched a few videos on it and found the graphic rendering to be absolutely adequate. For basic needs, this is an excellent solution. Very happy with my purchase.

I owned a previous 19 inch ViewSonic monitor -- so thought to replace with another 19 inch. Since I use it to work from home I overnighted the monitor (as my other ViewSonic suddenly died). I cannot use this product as the text is not clear or crisp. It is gray and blurry!I almost can't read what is on the screen. I also did not realize I ordered a widescreen -- which only makes reading on this screen worse by narrowing the field. I should have listened to the one reviewer who complained about how fuzzy the text is on the screen of this ViewSonic. Will be looking for another brand -- what good is cheaper, if not usable.

This is a great monitor for the price. If you have a low budget or don't have a need for a big screen, then this is a good way to go. Everything seems perfect to me except for one problem, the screen cuts off maybe 1/8 of an inch on the right side. Not a big deal, but kind of an annoyance. For example, your scroll bar for a web page is on the right side and you can only see half of it because of the little bit that is cut off. Besides that, great product!

I thought this was a good looking monitor, at a good size.

I eventually returned this monitor because it didn't quite do it for me. I work from home and spend all day on a computer. I made the mistake of thinking that this would have the quality of the HD monitor that I was used to. I didn't misread the product information, I just wasn't used to the terminology behind purchasing a monitor.

All in all, I would recommend this monitor for someone who doesn't spend all day reading at a computer. It's pretty hard on the eyes. However, for light computing on a budget, this monitor is perfect.
