Purchasers report that Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has very good user reviews with 83% of buyers recommending this PC monitor to others.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH

3.5" Bigger Display Diagonal

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is a 22" PC monitor. That's 3.5" bigger than the Acer V6 V196L (18.5"), 3" bigger than the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A (19") and 0.5" bigger than the LG 22LJ4540 (21.5"). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

1920 X 1080 (1080p) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels (as is the LG 22LJ4540), whereas the Acer V6 V196L and the HP ProDisplay P19A have a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and the Asus VS207TP only has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Vastly Faster Response Time

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a response time of 5ms (as do the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A), however the Acer V6 V196L is a 6ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower) and the LG 22LJ4540 is a 14ms response time PC monitor (9ms slower). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

18° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a vertical viewing angle of 178° (as does the LG 22LJ4540), whereas the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A are all only 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitors (18° narrower). More ...

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

5% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so does the LG 22LJ4540. That's 8° wider than the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A (170°). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Built-in Speaker

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a built-in speaker, and so do the Acer V6 V196L and the LG 22LJ4540, whereas the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A do not. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Two Speakers

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is a two speaker PC monitor, and so do the Asus VS207TP and the LG 22LJ4540, whereas the Acer V6 V196L only has one speaker. More ...

We do not know the number of speakers on the HP ProDisplay P19A. It is possible that it does not have any speakers.

The number of speakers that this monitor has.

More speakers means that the monitor will be able to play music and sounds louder, and with better audio clarity.

Better Kagoo Score

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Acer V6 V196L scored 86, the Asus VS207TP scored 87, the HP ProDisplay P19A scored 86 and the LG 22LJ4540 scored 85.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH

Only Low (1000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the Asus VS207TP, the HP ProDisplay P19A and the LG 22LJ4540), but the Acer V6 V196L has an ultra high typical contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Does Not Have a Built-in USB Hub

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the HP ProDisplay P19A), whereas the LG 22LJ4540 does. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

More Expensive by $22

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is $11 more expensive than the Acer V6 V196L, $22 more expensive than the Asus VS207TP and $8 more expensive than the HP ProDisplay P19A.

Fewer Sellers

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is only stocked by 4 sellers, but the Acer V6 V196L is stocked by 8 shops, the Asus VS207TP is stocked by 7 shops and the HP ProDisplay P19A is stocked by 6 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Two Years

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is four months older than the Acer V6 V196L, two years older than the HP ProDisplay P19A and 10 months older than the LG 22LJ4540.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $4

The running costs over five years of the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH are $60 which is $2 more than the Asus VS207TP, $2 more than the HP ProDisplay P19A and $4 more than the LG 22LJ4540. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Worse

The average user rating of the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Acer V6 V196L is 96% (based on 9 reviews).

Worse Brand

Viewsonic PC monitors have an average rating of only 93.4%, but Acer has an average rating of 94.8%, Asus has an average rating of 95% and LG has an average rating of 94.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Value Series VA2259SMH in the US is $77.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.
