Good Screen for the money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Viewsonic VX2453MH-LED 24-Inch Ultra-thin Widescreen LED Monitor - Black (Personal Computers)
I use this as computer monitor with a mac mini. Recommend VGA hookup for text; for video, use hdm1 or better yet mini dp with adapter on mac mini plus your own earphones as the monitor speakers are subpar, compared to say Apples I tried in store.
nice resolution, using SwitchRes X to get the full 1920 by 1080 Res, and use for better text the VGA, not HDM1. For improved visuals, matte needed on black frame as well with the windows I have behind me, but the matte screen itself is good. If screen is matte, so should be the frame. The shine is distracting as I use this computer to earn my living from (and need to focus), only secondarily for entertainment, hooking up mac mini to TV set for internet sports etc.
I use earphones so don't use the speakers and can not comment on the sound quality of the speakers. But for individual video/audio (sports, movies, you-tube, and talk radio) useful as is with earphones. you would probably want bigger screen for multiple person use; I use a 47 inch TV for that with the same mac mini hooked up to this computer-use only monitor. there is a special CD included which improves the audio, so try to install that if you want better audio, it was included with the monitor.
Would definitely buy from this company again, support was caring and responsive when I called, product very good to excellent esp for the money vs. Apple screen. (under $200 vs $1000).
Update: I tried to use the CD to improve the speaker experience and got the message "You can't open the application 0S9 ViewSonic because the Classic environment is no longer supported." from my mac mini, so depending on your system you may or may not be able to improve the speakers. So alternatives are to use your headphones, or external speakers if you need sound that much.
