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 an LED backlit monitor, white LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used as the light source. LED backlights provide the following benefits:

  • About 50% less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • 10,000,000:1 MEGA Contrast Ratio
  • 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 VA2248m-LED is friendly on your electricity bill. The savings of LED 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!


MEGA dynamic contrast ratio
One of the great features of VA2248m-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.


Full HD 1080p resolution
The VA2248m-LED features a 22"(21.5” Visible) widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.

Pair it with a ViewSonic or Mac computer
One of the key advantages of the VA2248m-LED monitor is its diverse connectivity options, making it flexible to be paired with a PC or a Mac computer. ViewSonic has recently announced a full line of PC products, including PC Minis and all-in-one PCs. Now you can hook up any Viewsonic PC as well as a MacBook® or a Mac Mini to the VA2248m-LED and enjoy a full 22" (21.5" Visible) widescreen with LED backlight!

VESA mountable
The VA2248m-LED features a 100mm x 100mm 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 35% energy savings
ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VA2248m-LED. When you don’t need all of the powerful features the VA2248m-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 35% 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.


The best pixel performance guarantee and 3 year warranty
One of the aspects that makes ViewSonic a market leader in displays is its dedication to quality. 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.

Size Name: 24-Inch Verified Purchase
I needed a pair of 24" monitors to work from home more efficiently. I had a smaller 20" LCD + my laptop screen, but that just didn't cut it. I have dual 24" at work, and needed to get the same for the house to make life easier when working from home without breaking the bank. These fit the bill - Out of the box these monitors are a little on the bright side with factory settings. I had to turn down the contrast(to 40) and brightness (to 50) to get the windows 7 colors to look more natural/less washed out. Compared to my Dell work monitors these are very similar in screen quality, at least to my eye. At home (when I'm not working) I do mostly web surfing, some programming, a little youtube, etc. For what I do for work, as well as home entertainment, these monitors work just fine.

I view these mostly straight on, and from where I sit, the screens are evenly lit. Sitting any more than about 15 degrees off center, you can start to see the screen change. I do not use the speakers so have nothing to say about them. Not a single dead pixel is an added plus.

All in all, these are simple monitors that don't break the bank, but provide plenty of screen real estate in a reasonable footprint. I find that these help to reduce the eye strain I had been dealing with using the smaller 20" + laptop monitors.

Also, I got these on sale - They were just shy of a buck forty each with free shipping, so the price was right.

Size Name: 22-Inch Verified Purchase
I have had this monitor for about two months without a problem. So this is what I think:

PRO:
-No dead pixels.
-Large work area (I upgraded from a 17")
-VERY bright, i had to turn down the brightness to 30%.
-Easy menu navigation.
-SUPER thin and light, it's amazing!
-Nice clean design.
-Energy efficient! :D

BUT:
-Poor speakers, but i use external ones anyway.
-The stand is a bit thin, may wobble if you have a shaky desk.
-1920x1080 supported but make sure you graphics card can do it, I had to tweak my GMA945 for it ot work.

Overall very good for the price, would buy again.

Beautiful display, but mine had a bright blue pixel stuck in the center of the screen. The screen also went blank randomly a few times with the back-light still lit. Although the replacement arrived super fast, it had two stuck pixels in the center of the screen as well. This model may need a little more QC in the future.

great picture and the high contrast you would expect from an LED. This one is not my first ViewSonic and likely not the last, BUT it does not tilt forward/backward so it requires a miscellaneous object under the base to provide the proper ergonomic placement to prevent neck/shoulder strain.

Purchased this for $120, thought it was a steal so i picked one up for my house.

Opened the package and here are some bullet points:

Pros:
* Price Price Price
* Clean bevels makes it look very nice on your desk
* Speakers are hidden so it doesn't look bulky
* Basically....it looks good off.

Cons:
* Colors look washed out especially blacks (even when trying to change the settings with contrast or turning the brightness down it just ends up looking worse.)
* Doesn't come with a DVI cable
* Controls are awkwardly placed behind the monitor
* Wobbly Stand
* Monitor Height is only about 3.5/4 inches off the table so you'd have to get a table top if you're going to want it higher
* Color Shifting- Just moving left to right on my chair i can see tint shift in white to yellowish
* No HDMI - But i didn't expect that on a budget monitor anyways

In short for people still on conventional TFT-LCD /TN/CRT monitors you will see a difference in Clarity but its nothing to write home about with this specific unit. If you just need a monitor for general browsing and nothing like photoshop/design/photography then its a good monitor with the $120 price point.

Id probably go with a 23" HP LED X Series if i had to pay more, i saw it in store and the colors were much much richer. Hopefully this helps some of you guys.

I bought this a few months back for the HD, the built in speakers I didn't really care about. Come to think of it all built in speakers on LCD/LEDs tend to be terrible. You experience the real capability of this 1080p display by using the DVI port, VGA would lower the quality (figured that out the hard way). Controls are pretty straight forward, didn't really need to tweak the color settings or anything.

This Monitor came with great reviews and I have had great results with Amazon. I was considering buying a completely new computer, when my wife suggested I upgrade the RAM and buy a new monitor instead. She was right! I went from 1 to 4 GB RAM and went from a 17" monitor to a Viewsonoc 22" monitor. Wow! What an improvement. I am so pleased!

Picture is good. The stand is a little stiff. It took me a while to discover that the angle is adjustable. When I first installed the stand, the screen was pointing at a downward angle, I tried to adjust it but it didn't budge and I though I was almost pushing hard enough to break something. About a week later, I tried adjusting it again and it finally moved and didn't break. Other than the stiff adjustment, it works great. For the price, this monitor is a good value and looks great.
