One customer said in their reviews that the Viewsonic XG2401 was a good design. In December Paul B wrote on Amazon “As far as gaming monitors go, Viewsonic seem to be playing it cool with the design, there’s a very visible red stripe along the base”.

One Viewsonic XG2401 reviewer said that it was neat. Paul B wrote on Amazon in December “Aside from that, only a neat little Viewsonic logo on the middle of the lower edge of the screen”.

One Viewsonic XG2401 owner considered that the Viewsonic XG2401 was smooth. In December Paul B mentioned in his review of this PC monitor on Amazon “If you use an AMD card then you can bring AMD’s FreeSync technology into play as well, helping to smooth the movement out even further”.

Good Brand

Viewsonic medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC screens Viewsonic is one of the superior manufacturers.

Easy to Use

One person wrote in their reviews that this PC monitor was easy to use the menus. A few weeks ago Paul B said “Menus are clear and easy to navigate, though everything is done through the touch sensitive buttons” in his review of the Viewsonic XG2401.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on latest medium monitors.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper PC screens such as the Samsung S27E510C[plb_2792915_price], or the Acer S271HLF[plb_3820539_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the Benq GW2765HE[plb_3831331_price].

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 271S7QJMB/00[plb_3822623_price], or the AOC I2775PQU[plb_3357274_price] is also worth considering.

If low-latency gaming is your priority, the $279 ViewSonic XG2401 is one of the best in its class. This 24-inch monitor offers ridiculously fast response times, dedicated FPS, MOBA and RTS modes,...

Let me say that right off the bat, if you want something light, powerful, and capable of future upgrading this is IT I got the Asus ROG 501vw yesterday so it is still very new, however, people compla
First off, I want to say how thin and light this laptop is It's great that I can take this around campus without my shoulders hurting from lugging it in my backpack
Quickiy Fast. I would prefer a SSD, but this laptop doesn't need one. Despite having a 5400rpm. My laptop boots up at around 15 secs. And from the login screen, takes another 2 secs
Powerful: I run my programs and games on high settings, and there is not one hiccup that I have noticed
Battery life: Get around 5 hrs per charge, on light uses. This is a great number, because of how thin and light it is. and plus having a gpu in it
The speakers really, really stink. That is an absolute con for me but would not cost this an egg
It is, like reviews say a fingerprint magnet but . .. there is much more to be concerned about when buying a machine imo
I do not like how this laptop is a fingerprint magnet. You can easily wipe them away. it's not a problem to me
Also I prefer white lighting behind the keyboard, the red back lit takes away from professional settings
But besides that, overall great laptop
