Based on 1,808 owner and expert reviews, Viewsonic has good reviews for its PC screens. Viewsonic also has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range.

LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on LCD screens of this spec and age.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the XB2780HSU, and the X2888HS both from iiyama or the DELL P2415Q ($344.99) is also worth considering.
