Our review analysis indicates that Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has great user reviews with 83% of buyers recommending this PC screen to others.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH

Larger Display Resolution

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so is the MSI G24C, which is twice as large display resolution as the Acer V6 V196L (1280 x 1024 pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the LG 24LJ4540WU (1366 x 768 (WXGA) 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.

10% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the LG 24LJ4540WU and the MSI G24C. That's 18° wider than the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP (160°). 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.

A Little Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as do the LG 24LJ4540WU and the MSI G24C), but the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP 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.

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 (as do the Acer V6 V196L and the LG 24LJ4540WU), but the Asus VS207TP and the MSI G24C do not have this feature. 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.

One More Speaker

The number of speakers on the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is two (as do the Asus VS207TP and the LG 24LJ4540WU), but the Acer V6 V196L only has one speaker. More ...

We do not know the number of speakers on the MSI G24C. 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, but the Acer V6 V196L scored 86, the Asus VS207TP scored 87 and the LG 24LJ4540WU scored 86.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a display diagonal of 22", but the Acer V6 V196L is a 18.5" PC monitor (3.5" smaller), the Asus VS207TP is a 19.5" PC monitor (2.5" smaller), the LG 24LJ4540WU is a 23.6" PC monitor (1.6" bigger) and the MSI G24C is a 24" PC monitor (2" 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.

Slower Response Time

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is a 5ms response time PC monitor, and so does the Asus VS207TP. That's 1ms faster than the Acer V6 V196L (6ms), 9ms faster than the LG 24LJ4540WU (14ms) and 4ms slower than the MSI G24C (1ms). 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.

3 Times Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the Asus VS207TP and the LG 24LJ4540WU, which is 3 times lower typical contrast ratio of the Acer V6 V196L (ultra high) and half the typical contrast ratio of the MSI G24C (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 Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the MSI G24C), but the LG 24LJ4540WU has 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.

$22 More Expensive

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is more expensive than the Acer V6 V196L by $11 and more expensive than the Asus VS207TP by $22.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 5 retailers sells the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH, however 8 retailers sell the Acer V6 V196L and 7 retailers sell the Asus VS207TP. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
10 Months Older

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is older than the Acer V6 V196L by four months, older than the LG 24LJ4540WU by 10 months and older than the MSI G24C by 10 months.

15% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH costs $61 to run which is $3 more than the Asus VS207TP and $8 more than the MSI G24C. Show assumptions.

Lower User Review Score

The Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH has an average user rating of 87%, but the Acer V6 V196L has an average user rating of 96% (based on 9 reviews) and the MSI G24C has an average user rating of 93% (based on 3 reviews).

Worse Brand

Viewsonic PC monitors have an average rating of only 93.7%, however Acer has an average rating of 94.8%, Asus has an average rating of 95% and LG has an average rating of 94.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Value Series VA2259SMH in the US is $77.00 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

Two Speakers

The Asus VS207TP has two speakers, and so do the LG 24LJ4540WU and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH, however the Acer V6 V196L only has one speaker. More ...

More ...

8 Reasons For for Choosing the MSI G24C

5.5" Bigger Display Diagonal

The MSI G24C has a display diagonal of 24", whereas the Acer V6 V196L is only a 18.5" PC monitor (5.5" smaller), the Asus VS207TP is only a 19.5" PC monitor (4.5" smaller), the LG 24LJ4540WU is only a 23.6" PC monitor (0.4" smaller) and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH is only a 22" PC monitor (2" 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.

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.

Larger Display Resolution

The MSI G24C has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so is the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH, which is twice as large display resolution as the Acer V6 V196L (1280 x 1024 pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the LG 24LJ4540WU (1366 x 768 (WXGA) 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.

Faster Response Time

The MSI G24C is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 5ms faster than the Acer V6 V196L (6ms), 4ms faster than the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH (5ms) and 13ms faster than the LG 24LJ4540WU (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.

10% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The MSI G24C is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the LG 24LJ4540WU and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH. That's 18° wider than the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP (160°). 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.

A Little Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The MSI G24C has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as do the LG 24LJ4540WU and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH), whereas the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP are both only 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (8° narrower). More ...

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.

HDMI

The MSI G24C has an HDMI, however the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP, the LG 24LJ4540WU and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The MSI G24C has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Acer V6 V196L scored 86, the Asus VS207TP scored 87 and the LG 24LJ4540WU scored 86.

Cheaper to Run by $8 Over Five Years

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the MSI G24C

Only High (3000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The MSI G24C has a high (3000:1) typical contrast ratio, which is half the typical contrast ratio of the Acer V6 V196L (ultra 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 MSI G24C does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH), whereas the LG 24LJ4540WU has 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 MSI G24C does not have a built-in speaker (As does the the Asus VS207TP), however the Acer V6 V196L, the LG 24LJ4540WU and the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH 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.

$135 More Expensive

The MSI G24C is more expensive than the Acer V6 V196L by $124, more expensive than the Asus VS207TP by $135, more expensive than the LG 24LJ4540WU by $84 and more expensive than the Viewsonic Value Series VA2259SMH by $113.

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this PC monitor, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Slightly Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the MSI G24C is 93%, whereas the average user rating of the Acer V6 V196L is 96% (based on 9 reviews).

Worse Brand
