Bookstand Option
The VX2453mh-LED features a very innovative industrial design, which allows it to be utilized with either the traditional base or in a bookstand configuration. Simply remove the base and tilt the neck back, to allow the monitor head to be displayed as a picture frame on the desktop. This allows not only the advantage of having the monitor head at desk level, but also brings a new degree of portability to the monitor. In the bookstand configuration the VX2453mh-LED can easily be carried to meetings as a companion display for your notebook computer!

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 backlight provide the following benefits:

  • About 40% less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • 30,000,000:1 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 VX2453mh-LED is not only but also 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*! For estimated savings that would apply to the VX2453mh-LED, please visit the LED Savings Calculator at ViewSonic.com/tco-led


MEGA dynamic contrast ratio
One of the great features of VX2453mh-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.


What is response time?
Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies. Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Full HD 1080p Resolution
The VX2453mh-LED features a 24" widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution that 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.

The Power of HDMI®
HDMI is one of the most powerful and widely available communication standards that connects digital audio/video sources such as set-top boxes, DVD players, personal computers (PCs, laptops), video game consoles such as the PlayStation® 3 and XBOX 360®, and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, computer monitors, and digital televisions. With just one cable, HDMI supports any TV or PC video format, including high-definition video and up to 8 channels of digital audio. This powerful technology comes standard in VX2453mh-LED. This way, you can connect your monitor to your desktop or laptop computer and work, surf the web or play games. Or you can connect it to your gaming console and enjoy the large 24” screen, 1ms response time and integrated speakers. You can even connect it to a cable box or a satellite receiver and watch TV on your monitor! Although the monitor doesn’t have a tuner to receive the TV signals from the air, HDMI + receiver box combination gives you the same TV experience. And another great example of the countless video sources you connect to is a Blu-ray® DVD/CD player.

It's a great monitor, it looks very nice.
Fernando
If you use it as a TV, plug your sound system into the headphone jack, and the volume can be controlled by the input device.

I've had this monitor for a few days. My first impressions are very good. Screen is great with no dead pixels and even lighting.

Pros:
Great picture
Looks good

Cons (and these I expected):
Stand isn't adjustable vertically
Speakers sound terrible. (tinny, which is to be expected on a monitor this skinny)

There's a gotcha I experienced hooking up my Macbook Pro via a Display Port to HDMI adapter. At first, choosing the 1080p resolution produces an image that's too large for the screen - that is the edges are chopped off. Adjusting the under/overscan slider makes it fit, but at the expense of being fuzzy. The solution is in the monitor's setting, under input select, each HDMI input has an AV/PC setting. Mine were set to AV by default. Switching that to PC made the image fit perfectly with no fuzzies.

Size Name: 27-Inch Verified Purchase
Having upgraded to a 24" VA2431 (non-LED) ViewSonic at the office, was enough to embark on a 27"-monitor-for-home-quest that would better its performance. After enough research, the final contenders were narrowed down to the Samsung S27A550H (LED) and the ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED; however the Samsung was nixed due to reported light bleed and stand issues, the lack of forward tilt, as well as enough users citing poorly rendered text. Not having seen it in the flesh, the latter may be attributed to among other things: user inability to select Samsung's PC Mode. Nonetheless after receiving the ViewSonic, I:
A. Hooked it up to a desktop system (E4500 Core 2 CPU, XP Sp3, XFX ATI Radeon HD6670 1 GB DDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card HD667XZAF3) via D-Sub.
B. Installed the software.
C. Used the interface buttons on the monitor to access the monitor's setup menu and changed it to "PC Mode".
D. Accessed ATI's Catalyst Control Center to change the overscan to 0% - to better fill the viewable space.
E. Went back into the monitor's setup menu and changed the:
* Horizontal Size until the image went corner-to-corner.
* Operation of the front bezel LED to turn off when the panel was in use (a nice feature).
* Brightness and contrast settings to yield a more pleasing image.
* LCD response time to Advanced.
F. Switched to the included HDMI Cable.
The results were well delineated text (without adjusting Microsoft's ClearType text), smooth motion, good contrast, very nice detail and an overall image that popped when source material was up to it (and I haven't adjusted Fine Tune and Sharpness yet)!

Size Name: 24-Inch Verified Purchase
This monitor has taken some flack for the way it sounds, so I will review this first. As far as sound goes, the built-in speakers are not very nice sounding from what I tried of them, although this was without the included software which is intended to improve their sound output. However, fitting amazing speakers in such a tight place as this really thin monitor is not possible due to the reality of sound production requiring a certain speaker size to produce various frequencies due to simple physics of vibration creation. If you want good sound though, all you have to do is buy a nice, inexpensive pair of computer speakers such as Logitech S220 2.1 Speaker System with Subwoofer and plug them into the sound output on the back of the monitor and it will route all of the sound input from the HDMI into them, which is quite nice.

That said, keep in mind that first and foremost you are purchasing an LCD monitor. Its true purpose is to display your desktop, images, videos and etc from your computer (or your Xbox 360, PS3, Blu-Ray player and etc), not to play sound. In that realm, as far as 24" monitors go from what I have seen and used, this is simply the best I have seen when compared to displays from vendors such as ASUS and Apple. The colours are extremely vivid and the viewing angles are very nice (can see movies/games from the extreme sides). The back-lighting is perfectly balanced, non-bleeding and it is great for watching HD movies as well as playing games or doing standard web browsing. It is also extremely thin and light despite being 24".

In short, if you are considering buying this monitor; do.

Size Name: 24-Inch
This is an excellent monitor considering what it offers. I am a person who sticks to a brand which delivers high quality and is worth using for several years. In monitors I prefer Sony, ViewSonic or HP. I have been using Sony SDM-S95DR LCD 19 inch monitors for almost several years in the office. Even Samsung is doing great in monitor/screens but somehow I have a negative feeling/experience about this brand and it cannot be compared with brands like Sony. I got this for my personal from Micro-Center ($208 including tax) for use at home and is just wonderful and saves hell lot of space. I reviewed this product on Amazon / Internet and then thought of going for it.

Pros:
1. Amazing resolution 1920x1080p.
2. No hassle installing the product. I am using Win 7 and installed the software in CD came with the box.
3. Ultra-Thin for sure in it's competition.
4. 2 HDMI ports and 1 VGA (D-Sub) port available with IN and OUT sound ports.
5. Also like the feature where you can place the monitor like a photo-frame. Just pull slowly the lever from the back and place it on the desk. No need to install the stand.
6. About looks: It's decent and pretty professional looking. I really don't like those glossy girly frames.

Cons:
1. It has in-built speaker, but the volume is damn low at it's high setting. But I really don't care as I prefer separate speakers. This is why I snatched 1 star from the rating. But considering an ultra thin model this is what we should expect.

Additional information:
If you use HDMI connection, couple of menus will be disabled. Also if you experience your picture being crossing the screen then you may have to select HDMI from the Input Selection from Menus.
