What is an LED monitor?

The term "LED monitor" generally refers to a monitor with an LCD panel and an LED backlight. A typical LCD monitor uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) as a light source to illuminate the LCD panel. In an LED backlit monitor, white LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used as the light source. Environmentally-friendly LED backlights provide the following benefits:

  • About 50%* less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • Mega dynamic contrast ratios. Provider deeper blacks and richer colors.
  • Environmentally-friendly mercury-free backlight
  • Low EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference)
  • Slimmer design
  • Weight reduction

Save Cash and Save the Planet

With its mercury-free backlight and low energy consumption, the ENERGY STAR 5.0 certified VA2212m-LED is not only environmentally friendly but also friendly on your electricity bill as well. This 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!


10,000,000:1 MEGA Dynamic Contrast Ratio

One of the great features of VA2212m-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.


Pair it with a ViewSonic or Mac computer

One of the key advantages of the VA2212m-LED monitor is its diverse connectivity options, making it flexible to be paired with a PC or a Mac computer. Now you can hook up any Viewsonic PC as well as a MacBook or a Mac Mini to the VA2212m-LED and enjoy a full 22" (21.5" viewable) widescreen with LED backlight!


VESA mountable

The VA2212m-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.


Eco-mode for up to 35%* energy savings

ViewSonic's proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VA2212m-LED. When you don't need all of the powerful features the VA2212m-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. *Energy savings may vary based on actual usage and other factors.


The best pixel performance guarantee and 3-year limited warranty

One of the aspects that makes ViewSonic a market leader in displays is its dedication to quality. ViewSonic is committed to use the highest grade panels and offer the best pixel performance policy in the market. We also back our displays with a 3-year limited warranty for your peace of mind.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent - nothing special

Pros: 1 - Cheap
2 - Good Size
3 - Power supply inside of monitor chassis (I hate laptop style monitor plugs)

Cons: Seems have trouble representing dark colors - I'm talking really dark colors; examples: #070707 (grey), #070000 (red), #000700 (green), #000007 (blue). I will post if i'm able to improve the calibration.

Don't try t use it for graphics where "dark darks" matter.

Other Thoughts: Manufacturer settings were too bright - You're going to spend some time tweaking settings.

1 out of 5 eggsWORST SUPPORT EVER

Pros: None I can tell from a broken monitor

Cons: I order and install all the hardware for a medium sized institution. I spend >$100k a year, a big chunk of that here on Newegg. I ordered 5 of these to have on hand as replacements, and was happy with the ones that worked. By the time I opened the last one to discover it was broken, it was past Newegg's 30 RMA period. Not a huge deal, I thought, that's one of the reasons I stopped buying another brand and had switched to Viewsonic, I thought the quality and service would be worth the price premium, as well as the 3 year warranty offered, longer than most.

Wow, was I wrong. Viewsonic is doing everything they can, including making up ridiculous and imaginary rules to avoid fixing the broken monitor I bought. Now they're telling me they won't do anything until I send them a photo of the broken monitor. REALLY? Their warranty coverage is dependent upon photo documentation? I read the "warranty" and found no such stipulation. What if a buyer didn't own a camera or camera phone? They really need to change their documentation if this is the case - "Warranty only valid if you have access to a camera and internet connection"

Now, we all know that this isn't the case, but I wanted to warn everyone about the lies they will be told by Viewsonic support team member "Anna" if they are unfortunate enough to have this person assigned to their issue. I think it speaks volumes about a company if they invent imaginary rules in order to avoid fulfilling their warranty obligations.

Viewsonic - 3 year warranty that we will never, ever honor.

Other Thoughts: In the end, the non-replacement of an inexpensive monitor is not a big deal to me or my budget. I doubt they feel the same about the 100+ monitors I purchase every year, none of which will have the name Viewsonic on them.

Poor service is unacceptable, being blatantly lied to is even worse. Me taking my business elsewhere is pointless unless I inform you of the decision and why.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang For the Buck!

Pros: Great picture, OK speakers built in, no external power supply, no configuration needed out of the box. Full 1920X1080 resolution. Slim and Light weight. Plug, Play and enjoy. Under $140.00 and free shipping..

Cons: No bulk purchase discount. But price is competitive. High gloss frame and base shows dust.

Other Thoughts: You can find a cheaper montiors with off brands but Vewsonics are well known in the monitor world. I have purchase 40+ for our buisness and 0 defects, 0 stuck pixels. Never installed the software on the included CD, not really needed. LED is the way to go, efficient, does not run hot and contrast levels are great. We use these for buisness applications but I bet these would look awesome gaming. Especially if you had 2 or 3 of theses side by side.

5 out of 5 eggsViewsonic

Pros: Super cheap. I have a dual monitor set for my work and one of them failed. I replaced both with a matching set for the price of one. No problems with either monitor. No dead or bright pixels. Bright hi rez picture.

Cons: None for what I use them for.

1 out of 5 eggsProduct arrived quickly.... but was completely unusable.

Pros: It arrived quickly.
Easy to put together.

Cons: The LCD was broken when it arrived. The entire lower left quadrant of the box and LCD display were cracked, possibly by poor shipping.

Other Thoughts: I have spent a considerable amount of money with little to no assistance and due diligence with this issue. The fact is I have all the parts and no display to use. Had I been home, I would have refused the monitor box, as it was the only damaged box.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

Pros: cost

Cons: Major display problems - screen was consistently out of color/contrast and any adjustment would just increase the problem.
Power cord was short and would often require adjusting to turn on the monitor. Moving the monitor slightly would almost always result in the monitor turning off. It was clear that the quality of the cord/input on the monitor was poorly made.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this monitor to others because of the poor screen quality and overall cheap feeling to the monitor. Spending a few extra dollars is entirely worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far.

Pros: Great screen quality,
Great build quality,
The built in speakers aren't as awful as some reviews have stated - more than fine for general use if you're not playing movies/music.
Handy tilt-function.
Awesome value for money.

Cons: Obviously if you want deep and rich sound you'll need proper speakers. But you surely knew that, right?
No HDMI, but that's hardly a deal breaker.
Doesn't come with a DVI cable but does give you a VGA cable. That seems really weird in this day and age - only gonna cost you another 10 bucks for a decent one though.

Other Thoughts: Love it, love everything about it. Literally exactly what I needed and the price (Newegg offer at the time) was incredible.

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD PIXELS BOTH UNITS

Pros: VIEWSONIC BRAND...

Cons: DEAD PIXELS!!!

After opening the box and plugging everything. 3 dead pixels on the spot. So I called customer service and another one is on the way. It arrived and plug everything up and again, 3 dead pixels. Two of the dead pixels were in the exact location as the 1st monitor i purchased. I return both monitors and decided not to purchase or accept a replacement. A bad batch!
