Great IPS monitor
on March 20, 2014
The ViewSonic VA2249S 22" IPS monitor looks great and if you are used to Apple products get this instead of other screens on the market. I have this paired with two of the Dell S2340M 293M3-IPS-LED 23-Inch Screen LED-lit Monitors and they look very nice together. I do like the Dell frame/bezel a little better because they are basically frameless, the ViewSonic monitor has a shiny bezel that attracts a lot of glare, that is my reason to give this 4 stars. I think they should have made a brushed bezel or at least dull so it does not reflect so much but besides that it is a beautiful piece of technology.
The factory settings were pretty much perfect for the room I use it in, remember though to always play with the color and contrast because depending on how bright or dark your room is you will probably have to change them. Many poor reviews have been made by people just because they never took the time to adjust factory settings.
The monitor has a very slim design, I am not using the base I have it mounted via the VESA mount on the back which works great and my dell monitors do not have that option so another plus for this IPS.
It contains a VGA and DVI only on the back, so don't think this is like other LED or LCD monitors that have audio and HDMI inputs. IPS monitors usually only have those inputs so don't confuse this with other monitors.
The picture quality is like no other, I use this for work so Im not watching movies or playing games but this would be perfect for both of those things displaying in full HD 1080p. The colors are very vibrant and very similar to my macbook pro retina.
Overall this is an amazing monitor and for the price its totally worth it, many IPS monitors are in the 600-900 range so its hard to find an IPS like this for a great price. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great monitor that has a massive viewing angle.
