8 Reasons For

Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

Viewsonic has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC monitors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the VK228H ($102.99), or the VX248 ($130.99) both from Asus or the iiyama XU2390HS.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec LCD screens that came out more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker, the Viewsonic VA2855 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus PB238 ($209.73) is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Fujitsu B22W-7, or the Eizo FlexScan EV2216.
