Viewsonic Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews
Viewsonic medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Viewsonic is one of the superior manufacturers.
80000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Viewsonic VX2276-smhd is 80000000:1. That's 20% less contrast ratio than a 100000000:1 PC screen, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio. Medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VX2276-smhd dynamic contrast ratios range from Mega Contrast (worst) to 100000000:1 (best).
There are a number of other PC displays that have an 80000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available that you might also want to look at including the Hannspree HL247HGB which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a PC monitor with a higher contrast ratio then you might want to look at the Acer K242HYL (100000000:1 and cheaper).
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the VX2276-smhd, the VX2276-smhd has a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper LCD screen such as the Hannspree HS 245 HPB or you might consider a better rated LCD screen such as the iiyama GE2788HS ($319.00) are also worth considering.
Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the AOC E2275PWQU.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the Viewsonic VX2276-smhd is more than most medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
