Ideal for Server Console Application
This review is from: ViewSonic VA705-LED Black 17" 5ms LED Backlight LED Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 10,000,000:1 (1000:1)
Pros: This monitor has a sharp display and is more than adequate for use with servers, where a large display very high resolution is not required. The LED backlighting means that this unit should last much longer than one with CCF backlighting. See more below
Cons: There are no cons at this time. The longest period of time in which we have had one of these monitors in service is three years, so we don't have any life data to report.
Other Thoughts: We ship these monitors with our Uni-FI® Linux® servers, so we know how well they do in such applications. In most of these applications, the display is in VGA text mode and since the console is where the operating system will write any critical notifications, the display is enabled at all times. As a CCF backlit monitor has an expected continuous operating life of 10,000 to 15,000 hours, we have had to instruct clients to shut of the monitor whenever it wasn't needed. We no longer have to do so since LED backlighting was introduced.
