ViewSonic’s new VA1948m-LED features an LED backlight 19" thin bezel widescreen monitor with integrated speakers. Environmentally friendly mercury-free VA1948m-LED offers 1440x900 resolution, 10,000,000:1 MEGA dynamic contrast ratio, DVI and VGA inputs, 5ms response time, VESA mountable glossy finish design. The aspect ratio adjustment feature automatically senses the input signal and will not stretch a 4:3 signal but instead will position the image in the middle of the screen with side bars. ENERGY STAR 5.0 certification, one of the industry’s best pixel performance policy, and energy saving Eco-mode make the VA1948m-LED a great long-term investment.

  • newegg Save cash and save the planet With its mercury free backlight and low energy consumption, the Energy Star 5.0 certified VA1948m-LED is not only environmentally friendly but also friendly on your electricity bill. The savings of LED can add up to thousands of dollars saved for large install bases, such as big corporate buildings or schools. The savings can be as dramatic as $20,000 in five years!
  • newegg MEGA dynamic contrast ratio One of the great features of VA1948m-LED is its ability to dim the backlight completely for pure darkness during dark scenes, such as a night shot in a movie. Contrast ratios refer to the ratio of the brightest color to the darkest color. With traditional CCFL backlit displays, contrast ratios are limited to the fluorescent lamp´s ability to dim, in order to reproduce darkness. However, with the LED backlight, each LED has the ability to completely shut-off allowing for a near infinite ratio of black to white contrast. The end result is true blacks that result in greater overall image quality.
  • newegg Pair it with a ViewSonic or Mac computer One of the key advantages of the VA1948m-LED monitor is its diverse connectivity options, making it flexible to be paired with a PC or a Mac computer. ViewSonic has recently announced a full line of PC products, including PC Minis and all-in-one PCs. Now you can hook up any Viewsonic PC as well as a MacBook or a Mac Mini to the VA1948m-LED and enjoy a full 19" widescreen with LED backlight!
  • newegg VESA mountable The VA1948m-LED features a 100mm x 100mm VESA mountable design that allows you to mount it on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. You can detach the base easily by unscrewing four screws and then mounting the display on its new stand or wall mount.
  • newegg Eco-mode for up to 35% energy savings ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VA1948m-LED. When you don’t need all of the powerful features the VA1948m-LED has to offer, you have the option to reduce the monitor’s brightness, save energy, save the planet and prolong the lamp life. You can select one of the “Optimize” or “Conserve” options and save up to 35% energy. Especially under low ambient light conditions, adjusting the brightness will improve visibility by reducing eye fatigue. Reducing brightness will also prolong the monitor’s lamp life, improving your return on investment.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: - Still in working condition
- No hardware issue with it

Cons: - Buttons are not intuitive; but rather a pain in the buns to use
- Picture is ok, but something better could be found
- It's adjustable, but that doesn't work to well either, swiveling it is not a smooth process, and it tends to slip out of place quickly.
- Speakers are even worse than you're average monitor, which are almost always useless.

Other Thoughts: I really just bought this b/c everything else I wanted and that had good reviews was out of stock. I wish I had just waited. Do yourself a favor and pick something else.

2 out of 5 eggsPoorly made

Pros: It's a throw away monitor. Easy to change brands.

Cons: I bought 5 of these for my office. They get 9-5 use 5 days a week, and they're off when they're not being used. Of the 5 monitors that I've now owned for about a year, 3 of them have already died.

Sure, the LEDs last forever; but these monitors sure don't. The electrical on them is trash. Each one went through stages of randomly losing power (not signal) to the point where it was impossible to remedy the issue after a while. Now they just don't turn on. It's not the power source, it's not the signal source, it's just horrible wiring (and possibly components). These monitors are never touched or moved. They should have maintained perfect working order based on how they were maintained and treated.

Other Thoughts: 1 star for each remaining monitor I have left from the purchase..... won't be buying into viewsonic to replace these.

2 out of 5 eggsUseless Speakers

Pros: Good picture

Cons: Speakers are worthless. You have to put your ear to the back of the monitor to hear the speakers.

Other Thoughts: Would not have bought had I known the speakers were useless!

4 out of 5 eggsSuperior picture, Elegant package

Pros: Picture is absolutely gorgeous. Possibly the best I've seen in a bargain 19" display. Nice thin panel ... and very light. Glossy case finish matches well with other glossy peripherals, if you have them.

Cons: Like every other monitor I've ever seen ... the speakers are practically useless. Not a big deal, just pointing out that you shouldn't expect anything different from this model compared to others you've seen. Rather spartan features. Nothing extra like HDMI ports, USB hub, etc. etc. While I wouldn't call a monitor at this price point "expensive", it is pricey compared to others in it's size/class. A few extras like that would make it easier to justify.

Other Thoughts: We were looking for monitors to create a dual monitor configuration for some 19" glossy All-In-Ones that were manufatured to medical standards. (So not your basic flimsy plastic wonders).

19" Monitors are disappearing, and most of what's left leaves a lot to be desired. Granted these haven't been in service very long , so longevity is a still a huge question mark. But initial feedback from users is glowingly positive. They LOOK very nice, both in picture quality and style.

As a bonus, this panel is light enough such that it could be installed first on one side of a dual monitor stand without tipping the stand over. It doesn't sound like much, but if you consider that we setup over 50 of these all at once ... it was a pretty big deal.

The other reviewers seem to really bash this display because of its shoddy speakers. And while it is true that they are absolutely terrible ... this monitor does many other things well. I don't buy bargain monitors for their speakers.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy for the Speakers

Pros: Looks great with a super display image.

Cons: I was looking for a nice backlit LCD monitor to replace my old NEC 4:3 17" with speakers. Got the Viewsonic - what a joke. The speakers are all but inaudible. Returned for a replacement thinking maybe I just got a bad one. The replacement was exactly the same. Nice display but the speakers are garbage. Go with external speakers if you need the sound, not these bogus monitors.
