Customers report that Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has terrific user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this PC monitor to others.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM

18° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has a vertical viewing angle of 178° (as do the Acer EB321HQ and the LG 22LJ4540), whereas the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A are both 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 VG Series VG939SM is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Acer EB321HQ and the LG 22LJ4540. That's 8° wider than the Asus VW199 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 VG Series VG939SM has a built-in speaker, and so do the Asus VW199 and the LG 22LJ4540, whereas the Acer EB321HQ 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the Acer EB321HQ scored 88, the Asus VW199 scored 87, the HP ProDisplay P19A scored 87 and the LG 22LJ4540 scored 87.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM

40% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is a 19" PC monitor, and so do the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A. That's 12.5" smaller than the Acer EB321HQ (31.5") and 2.5" smaller 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.

Smaller Display Resolution

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels pixels (as is the HP ProDisplay P19A), whereas the Acer EB321HQ has a display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and the LG 22LJ4540 has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) 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.

A Lot Slower Response Time

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has a response time of 14ms (as does the LG 22LJ4540), however the Acer EB321HQ is a 4ms response time PC monitor (10ms faster) and the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A are both 5ms response time PC monitors (9ms faster). 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.

Only Low (1000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the Asus VW199, the HP ProDisplay P19A and the LG 22LJ4540), but the Acer EB321HQ has a 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.

More Expensive by $22

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is $22 more expensive than the HP ProDisplay P19A and $12 more expensive than the LG 22LJ4540.

Fewer Sellers

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is only stocked by 3 shops, but the Acer EB321HQ is stocked by 13 retailers and the HP ProDisplay P19A is stocked by 4 sellers. More ...

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

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is three years older than the Acer EB321HQ, four years older than the HP ProDisplay P19A and two years older than the LG 22LJ4540.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $12

The Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM costs $71 to run which is $6 more than the Asus VW199, $9 more than the HP ProDisplay P19A and $12 more than the LG 22LJ4540 over five years. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The average user rating of the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is 98%, whereas the average user rating of the Asus VW199 is 100% (based on 3 reviews) and the HP ProDisplay P19A is 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Viewsonic PC monitors have an average rating of only 93.7%, but Acer has an average rating of 93.9%, Asus has an average rating of 95% and LG has an average rating of 94.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VG Series VG939SM in the US is $80.99 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

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

A Lot Slower Response Time

The LG 22LJ4540 has a response time of 14ms (as does the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM), but the Acer EB321HQ is a 4ms response time PC monitor (10ms faster) and the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A are both 5ms response time PC monitors (9ms faster). 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.

Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The LG 22LJ4540 has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the Asus VW199, the HP ProDisplay P19A and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM), whereas the Acer EB321HQ has a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 22LJ4540 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Acer EB321HQ scored 88 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM scored 89.

More Expensive by $10

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock.
Older by Over One Year

The LG 22LJ4540 is eight months older than the Acer EB321HQ and 14 months older than the HP ProDisplay P19A.

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The LG 22LJ4540's average user score is 90%, however the Asus VW199's is 100% (based on 3 reviews), the HP ProDisplay P19A's is 100% (based on 1 review) and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM's is 98% (based on 8 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The LG 22LJ4540's average overall score is 91%, however the Asus VW199's is 93% (based on 3 reviews) and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM's is 93% (based on 8 reviews).

3 Reasons For for Choosing the HP ProDisplay P19A

$10 Cheaper

The HP ProDisplay P19A costs $59.00, whereas the Acer EB321HQ is $150.00, the Asus VW199 is $103.99, the LG 22LJ4540 is $69.00 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is $80.99.

Six Months Newer

The HP ProDisplay P19A was released three years ago, but the Acer EB321HQ was released four years ago, the Asus VW199 was released 11 years ago, the LG 22LJ4540 was released five years ago and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM was released seven years ago

User Reviews Are Slightly Better

The average user review score of the HP ProDisplay P19A is 100% based on 1 review, but the average rating of the Acer EB321HQ is 81% (based on 16 reviews), the average rating of the LG 22LJ4540 is 90% (based on 233 reviews) and the average rating of the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM is 98% (based on 8 reviews).

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the HP ProDisplay P19A

12.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The HP ProDisplay P19A has a display diagonal of 19" (as do the Asus VW199 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM), but the Acer EB321HQ is a 31.5" PC monitor (12.5" bigger) and the LG 22LJ4540 is a 21.5" PC monitor (2.5" bigger). 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.

Only 1280 X 1024 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The HP ProDisplay P19A has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels pixels, and so is the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM, which is 3 times smaller display resolution as the Acer EB321HQ (2560 x 1440 pixels) and half as large display resolution as the LG 22LJ4540 (1920 x 1080 (1080p) 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.

1ms Slower Response Time

The HP ProDisplay P19A is a 5ms response time PC monitor, and so does the Asus VW199. That's 1ms slower than the Acer EB321HQ (4ms) and 9ms faster than the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM (14ms). 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.

Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The HP ProDisplay P19A is a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so does the Asus VW199. That's 18° narrower than the Acer EB321HQ, the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM (178°). 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.

8° Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The HP ProDisplay P19A has a horizontal viewing angle of 170° (as does the Asus VW199), but the Acer EB321HQ, the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM are all 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (8° wider). 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.

Half the Typical Contrast Ratio

The HP ProDisplay P19A has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the Asus VW199, the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM, which is half the typical contrast ratio of the Acer EB321HQ (high). 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 HP ProDisplay P19A does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer EB321HQ and the Asus VW199), but the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM have this feature. 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The HP ProDisplay P19A does not have a built-in speaker (As does the the Acer EB321HQ), whereas the Asus VW199, the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM do. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The HP ProDisplay P19A has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Acer EB321HQ scored 88 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM scored 89.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 4 sellers sells the HP ProDisplay P19A, however 13 retailers sell the Acer EB321HQ. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 4%

Over five years the HP ProDisplay P19A costs $61 to run which is $2 more than the LG 22LJ4540. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

HP PC monitors have an average rating of only 92.1%, however Acer has an average rating of 93.9%, Asus has an average rating of 95%, LG has an average rating of 94.8% and Viewsonic has an average rating of 93.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the ProDisplay P19A in the US is $59.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Acer EB321HQ

12.5" Bigger Display Diagonal

The Acer EB321HQ has a display diagonal of 31.5", but the Asus VW199, the HP ProDisplay P19A and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM are all only 19" PC monitors (12.5" smaller) and the LG 22LJ4540 is only a 21.5" PC monitor (10" smaller). 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.

2560 X 1440 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Acer EB321HQ has a display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels pixels, which is 3 times larger display resolution as the Asus VW199 (1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels), 3 times larger display resolution as the HP ProDisplay P19A and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM (1280 x 1024 pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the LG 22LJ4540 (1920 x 1080 (1080p) 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.

72% Faster Response Time

The Acer EB321HQ is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A (5ms) and 10ms faster than the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM (14ms). 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.

Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The Acer EB321HQ is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM. That's 18° wider than the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A (160°). More ...

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

8° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Acer EB321HQ has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as do the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM), but the Asus VW199 and the HP ProDisplay P19A are both only 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (8° narrower). More ...

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

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.

HDMI

The Acer EB321HQ has an HDMI, whereas the Asus VW199, the HP ProDisplay P19A, the LG 22LJ4540 and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM do not have this feature. More ...

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specialised interface for transferring high quality audio & visual data from a data source (such as a DVD player or computer) to a TV or monitor.

An HDMI connection on your monitor allows for extremely high-quality audio/visual transmission from a computer or DVD player, meaning your films will sound and look the best they can be.

HDCP

The Acer EB321HQ has an HDCP (as do the Asus VW199 and the LG 22LJ4540), but the HP ProDisplay P19A and the Viewsonic VG Series VG939SM do not have this feature. More ...
