Stellar monitor for the money.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ViewSonic VX2252MH 22-Inch LED-Lit LCD Monitor, Full HD 1080p, 2ms, 50M:1 DCR, Game Mode, HDMI/DVI/VGA, VESA (Personal Computers)
This monitor is clearly a winner among mid-sized entry priced displays.
Don't expect studio or production quality image reproduction at this price point, but enjoy the crisp, clear and ghost free images this unit produces.
After some initial setup and calibration using AVS HD 709 the picture looks very good in a moderately lit room.
Before questioning the quality of this display, consider the following:
1- Monitors and TV's come out of the box set to be on in a very bright, harshly lit showroom/sales floor.
2- Consider the equipment you are connected to and the age of its video processing componentry.
3- Your video settings on the playback device may not be optimal.
As a certified and industry employed professional installer I can tell you this is not quite near the big money commercial grade picture quality a few officionados seek, but for everyday use it is very good, especially at the street price available.

While I've been very pleased with my ViewSonic monitor, I'm thinking of buying a Samsung 22 inch TV to use on my backup computer. In general, what do you think of the idea of using a TV as a computer monitor?

I had the same question as Adam. However, to be able to adapt to some older and newer equipment as needs might dictate, I also wanted a monitor with both VGA and HDMI, but I don't think most TVs will have that combination.
That combination of connectors is partly what led me to this monitor by way of Amazon's search checkboxes. Perhaps one may have to give up some performance for the sake of connectivity.
Anyway I am interested to see if anybody has a reply for his question, too.

All a TV is really is an LCD screen with a tuner, a remote, and likely better sounding speakers, and with all these, it will cost a little bit more. For the longest time, I've been using a Samsung (19" diag.) SyncMaster 940mw, which is a TV, for both gaming and as my desktop computer monitor. I've now switched to the VX2452mh for better gaming response, then decommissioned and replaced my little cathode ray tube TV with the Samsung. But I tell you, as a desktop computer monitor, I loved that Samsung because its picture and narrower 16:10 screen ratio was great for reading and writing.
And yes, as amanooensis mentions above, with a TV you may have to give up some performance for the sake of connectivity, or vice versa. But I'm looking at the Samsung UN22F5000AFXZA right now, and I'm salivating.
