Easy to use on screen adjustments for color, brightness, contrast, etc~ Crisp colors, sharp images and native max resolution of 1280x1024 make this monitor a winning proposition for users regardless of use; business graphics or gaming. Especially though, for gaming.
This is not a "wide screen" 19 inch monitor with a 16-9 aspect ratio- it is the full blown 19" version with a 4-3 aspect ratio. You get a great bonus in usable screen area that comes in handy on the desktop and allows for much better viewing in my opinion. Vertical refresh rates range from 60~75 Hertz. The preferred (default) resolution is 1280x1024 at 60 Hertz.
I rank it as the best value in it's class.
I'm also using it in a two-display setup, with a Mac, and it is better in some respects than the more expensive (but much older) 19" NEC monitors that I've been using. The "go to black" (a TV term) is much better than the NEC, as is the robustness of the colors, when compared with a television colorbar test pattern side by side. On the other hand, the evenness of the florescent backlighting is better on the NECs: on the Viewsonic it is brighter on the bottom, with a gradual transition to not-quite-as-bright on the top. Not a problem for me, but for color professionals, an issue.
The only negative that I can register is that (unlike the NECs) the stand does not allow the monitor to sit more than four inches or so above the desktop. The NECs have an extendable/adjustable stand which allows the monitor to sit some seven inches above the surface, which makes it much easier on the neck muscles.
I went with the 19" VA926 for a number of reasons other than my satisfaction with the VP2130b.
One huge plus is the screen aspect. Far from being a widescreen.... it even exceeds the 4:3 ratio. The viewable screen measures 15" in width by 12" in height which works out to a 5 to 4 ratio. PLENTY of room in height to view web pages or documents without resorting to scrolling. With the 5:4 aspect you get very close to the same viewable height on this 19" monitor as with a standard 21".
The resolution is 1280 x 1024 so I can't expect to get the same detail as with the 1600 x 1200 of the VP2130b, but then consider that it's only about a third the money.
The image colors are strikingly vivid and bright compared to the considerably more expensive VP2130b, though not having the quite the resolution.
Lastly, it's really good looking and compact for a screen almost a 180 square inches in area.
I'm very pleased with the VA926 and would buy it all over again in a heart beat......
Will be returning this.
Return with Amazon was easy as always. Second monitor shipped had no dead pixels and no issues.
I now have 3 ViewSonic 19" LCD monitors and a 23" ViewSonic HD TV/Monitor and they all work great. Open the box, connect them, turn them on, and then enjoy. This latest one is even better than the others. The color just jumped out at me as soon as I turned it on.
As others have commented, the 1280 x 1024 (5:4) display ratio is the most efficient for graphic artists. With so few monitors available in this format it's fortunate that ViewSonic makes such great monitors.
I don't buy any other brand regardless of price.

I've had this Viewsonic VA926G monitor since April, 2010. On June 14, 2012 it went black. I suspect the 40,000 hour backlight has given out after 10,000 hours.Published on June 14, 2012 by FredB
