12 Reasons For

Good Brand

Viewsonic medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC displays Viewsonic is one of the better rated brands.

Easy to Use

A few Viewsonic VG2039M reviewers who reviewed the product wrote that it had a good experience. Yowdoo said in their review of this PC monitor on Amazon in October last year “All those good things needed for a good viewing experience”.

Good Product Quality

One person mentioned in their reviews that it was good quality. Paul D. Mccredie mentioned “The image quality is certainly adequate at the resolution used (1280 x 768” in his review of the Viewsonic VG2039M however despite that he gave this PC monitor a rating of 3 stars.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to it.

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VS239 ($125.99), the LG 24MP55, and the AOC I2473 is also worth considering.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 246V5, the HKC 2412A, and the iiyama E2273HDS is also worth considering.
