6 Reasons For
Viewsonic Has Good PC Monitor Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all Viewsonic PC monitors and also specifically for Viewsonic medium monitors and found that in both cases Viewsonic had good reviews.
Just Released Six Months Ago
The VA2759-smh was only relased by Viewsonic six months ago. Newer LCD screens like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other LCD screens that were released in the last year, the VA2759-smh has a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including the Philips 221B7QPJEB which is cheaper; or the AOC G2778VQ-27 which has better reviews.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Philips 277E6LDAD is also worth considering.
Has Three Cables Included
The VA2759-smh has a greater number of cables included than most new medium monitors. This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the VA2759-smh. The cables included "AUX" and "VGA" are also found on this PC screen.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on medium monitors that were released in the last year.
The average depth of medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the VA2759-smh is 100mm. The VA2759-smh is fairly shallow (only 48.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other LCD screens that are a similar age to the VA2759-smh.

LCD Display Type
The Viewsonic VA2759-smh has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most recently released PC screens.
If the display type of this Viewsonic LCD screen is too bad for you then you might want to consider the HP 27es ($199.99) (LED and higher rated) or the Asus VZ249H ($159.99) (LED and cheaper).
With a width of 622.5 millimeters, the VA2759-smh has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that came out in the last year.
PC monitors with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the S27E510C ($249.99) (623.2mm), or the LC27F396FHU (622.9mm) both from Samsung or the Acer RT270bmid (621mm).
