10 Reasons For
User Reviews Are Good
The average user rating of this flatpanel monitor is 86 out of 100 based on 7 user reviews.
Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays
Viewsonic medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC screens Viewsonic is one of the superior brands.
Good Picture Quality
One Viewsonic VG2239M reviewer who reviewed the Viewsonic VG2239M concluded that it had good picture quality.
Good Product Quality
One person who purchased the product concluded that it was good quality. Last year Paul D. Mccredie said “The image quality is certainly adequate at the resolution used (1280 x 768”.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC screens of this type and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the LG 22MP55[plb_2203110_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the Acer G237HL[plb_2266292_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Viewsonic VG2239M has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC monitors of this age and spec which do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the NEC AccuSync AS222[plb_1586454_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Philips 221S6QYMB[plb_3027870_price], or the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on PC displays that have been available for around the same time as it.
At only 512.4 millimeters, the VG2239M is quite narrow compared to most of the other PC monitors of this age and type. Across all the PC displays of a comparable age and type to the VG2239M the widths range from 50mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.
LCD screens with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the Samsung S22B300[plb_1415216_price] (513.1mm and cheaper).
At only 3.2 kilograms, the Viewsonic VG2239M is fairly light compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the VG2239M. Across all the LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the VG2239M the weights range from 3g to 39kg.
The shortest flatpanel monitor of this spec and age is 30mm tall, the tallest is 4,800mm, and the average height is 370mm. With a height of only 304.4 millimeters, the VG2239M is quite short compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for more than two years.
5 Reasons Against
Poor Sound Quality
One customer wrote in their reviews that it did not have good sound quality. Paul D. Mccredie rated the product 60 out of 100 and he mentioned on Amazon “The sound quality is so awful, that I have gone back to using my old speakers”.
Not 3D Compatible
The Viewsonic VG2239M is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been available for a similar time to the VG2239M are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Viewsonic VG2239M does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens of a similar age and type to the VG2239M also do not have a built-in camera.
We think you might also be interested in alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the VK228H[pl_1386924_price], or the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price] both from Asus.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Viewsonic VG2239M does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the VG2239M also do not have an integrated card reader.
