After the BenQ LED monitor brigade’s impressive rendezvous with us, our meandering sights turn to another very popular LCD monitor brand: Viewsonic. This too comes with the hot LED tag, meaning it’s backlit by white LED. We have the 19 incher, called VX1932wm, so let's see if it can fit the bill.

Design and features
The monitor comes clad in a black glossy bezel, with the bottom panel containing the speaker and a frontal speaker grille. The stand is well designed with a dual surface consisting of a gloss strip running down the center, and matte finish on the 2 sides. This stand juxtaposes very well with the frame, and causes very little wobbliness. The tight finish impressed us, but there is no swiveling option; only tilting up and down is possible, for about 20 degrees. The bottom panel center is where all the action is, with a blue LED backlit power button, and 2 flat flush mounted push buttons on either of its sides.

The connections offered are one DVI-D and a VGA, with an EP 3.5mm audio in. The screen size is 19 inch diagonal, with 1440×900 native res. The rated contrast ratio is 1000:1, and response time is given as 5ms. Brightness is rated at 250 nits, and its funny because all the LED lit monitors that have come our way have been 250 cd/m2 rating. The sound output is a total of 4 watts. The panel is a TN panel, presumably, with 170 degree viewing angle.
