"Slim and Light"on by KevinLRogers
Pros + Good colors, good viewing angles, even lighting, good contrast, no ghosting, two stand options, thin, 1920 X 1080 resolution
+ Very light for a monitor of this size
+ 2 HDMI ports and 1 VGA (D-Sub) port
Cons - Built-in speakers sound quality is so poor
Summary This Viewsonic VX2453MH-LED 24-Inch Ultra-thin Widescreen LED Monitor is not a "true" 24-inch monitor. Its viewable area measures 23-1/2 inch diagonally. It is noticeable smaller than my monitor that measures 24 inches diagonally; so buyers beware. It is very thin, with the thickest part at 1-1/2 inch and very light for a monitor of this size. The base can be removed for easy portability and the monitor can be set up quickly in a bookstand configuration.
For those who are looking for a monitor to move around to meetings and presentations, this is the one to buy. It came with one VGA socket and two HDMI sockets at the back. Theoretically, one can connected up to 3 devices (computers and/or TV tuners) to this same monitor and toggle them back and forth at the monitor Input menu. The display is crisp with vivid colors at 1920 X 1080 resolution. I know that VGA is analog and HDMI is digital.
I tried both connections with the same PC, one at a time, and see no difference in the quality of the display. It may make a difference with HDTV. I leave that to other reviewers. There are two built-in speakers but the sound quality is so poor and the volume so low that it is not usable for CD or DVD audio, even after I installed the "SRS Premium Sound software". Good quality external speakers or earphone are recommended.
A 3.5-mm stereo audio input and an earphone output of the same size at the back of the monitor are provided for this purpose. A 100-240 volt transformer plugs into a power socket next to the HDMI sockets. This monitor supposedly uses 40% less power because of the LED backlighting. I have to take Viewsonic's words for it.
The ON-Off button is on the lower right hand side, together with four other buttons for monitor adjustments. They are hard to access and inconvenient to use. Overall, this is a very good monitor for the money.
*Note, for low prices, if you're will buy the Monitor, I suggest you have to compare prices before you decide at: Prices-comparison.info/Viewsonic-VX2453MH
Hope my review helpful.
Pros Nice appearance, extremely bright display
Cons highest resolution won't work with my Toshiba laptop and HDMI cable. ViewSonic tech support couldn't solve it either
Summary Be sure to purchase where you can return it without a fee if HDMI output on your machine won't fill the screen
Pros Great looking screen colors are great, LED back light keeps it bright, and black levels are better than most other similar priced monitors.
Cons Speakers may as well have been left out, they sound like an iphone's speakers. The HDMI on some PCS will not fit the full screen (easily fixed in graphics card options), and HDMI may be a little blurry on the AV setting (fixed by changing to pc mode)
Summary Although my cons list may seem to outweigh the good, once this screen is set up there are no problems that i have experienced. I am seriously considering buying another for 'dual screening' graphic glory. p.s. i have had my screen for almost a year now.
Pros Very clear black color, and picture in general is great 1080p HDMI
Cons adjusting it,will take some time, monitor menu settings, and had to adjust "digital color format" in NV**IA contrl panel -0.5
Summary Had to get it replaced for dead pixels, but a the end it works very clear
