"Slim and Light"4.5 starson 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.

Hope my review helpful.
