The term "LED monitor" generally refers to a monitor with a LCD panel and a 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:
The VG2239m-LED is equipped with DisplayPort digital interface, which transmits both audio and video signals through a single connection to deliver ultimate versatility and performance. DisplayPort supports all kinds of multimedia devices for convenience in video production, graphic design and more.
Ergonomics is defined as the profession of designing tools and work environments to best accommodate human performance and behavior. The VG2239m-LED is one of the great examples of an ergonomically designed tool. Based on your height, chair and desk conditions, you can adjust it up and down for 5.3”, swivel it 360°, or tilt it 20° degrees, whatever makes you more comfortable.
Also, when designing a portrait mode image or a document (such as a flyer or a magazine page), you can rotate the monitor 90° and utilize your 22" screen size at its full extent. You can also adjust your graphics card settings so that all your graphics are rotated 90° as well.
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 3-year limited warranty for your peace of mind.
The VG2239m-LED features DisplayPort, DVI-D digital, and a VGA analog inputs. You can connect multiple sources at the same time and then toggle between them by selecting the input source through the On-Screen-Display (OSD). You can also connect one of your computer’s USB ports to the monitor’s USB uplink input which then multiplies the USB ports to two. This way, you can connect your keyboard / mouse or other peripherals to your monitor directly and save yourself from the hassle of reaching for your computer’s USB ports.
One of the great features of VG2239m-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.
The VG2239m-LED features a 22"(21.5” viewable) widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.
One of the key advantages of the VG2239m-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 SKU and enjoy widescreen with LED backlight!
The VG2239m-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.
ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VG2239m-LED. When you don’t need all of the powerful features the VG2239m-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 50%* 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.
With its mercury free backlight and low energy consumption, the ENERGY STAR 5.0 certified VG2239m-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!
Pros: This monitor is thin, light weight, and is very adjustable. I like a monitor that is right at eye level and it's great not to have to place it on top of a stand.
Cons: The speakers are not good, but what do you expect built-in monitor speakers? This monitor could also benefit from having some cable management on the back.
Other Thoughts: I had to adjust the default settings a bit to my liking - a straight forward process. I like it enough to buy a 2nd one for extending my desktop.
