What is SuperClear IPS Technology?

ViewSonic VX70 series SuperClear IPS monitors deliver an extraordinary level of visual clarity. IPS (in-plane switching) technology eliminates image distortion and color shifting to ensure true, lifelike color from virtually any viewing angle.

  • Brilliant, Lifelike Color: ViewSonic SuperClear IPS monitors deliver amazing, lifelike images in which true colors are beautifully replicated on the screen. The colors you see in real life are accurately depicted on all ViewSonic SuperClear IPS monitors, ensuring high-color accuracy and consistency from screen to print.
  • Super Wide Viewing Angles: ViewSonic SuperClear IPS monitors produce true colors and consistent images when viewed from the front, from the sides, from below, and from virtually any other viewing angle. No matter your perspective, you will not have any color shift or changes in contrast ratio when you move the image across the screen or change your viewing angle.


Frameless Design with Edge-to-Edge Glass and Ultra-Slim Bezel

Say goodbye to the thick, clunky plastic frames set over the edges of traditional monitors. ViewSonic VX70 series SuperClear IPS monitors feature a frameless edge-to-edge glass faceplate with an ultra-slim bezel beneath the glass. With their sleek, eye-catching design, our elegant IPS monitors look as good as they perform.


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 40%* less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • 30,000,000:1 MEGA Dynamic Contrast Ratio
  • 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 certified VX2270Smh-LED saves 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!


sRGB Color Correction Technology Delivers the Most Accurate Color Performance Available

ViewSonic LED monitors embedded sRGB color correction technology reproduce 100% sRGB rich color for color performance matching original input sources without decreasing or leveraging color quality. sRGB ensures all displayed images/videos are as natural as the original sources, displaying real color for captured camera and camcorder content.


MEGA dynamic contrast ratio

One of the great features of VX2270Smh-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.


Full HD 1080p Resolution

The VX2270Smh-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.


Eco-mode for up to 30%* energy savings

ViewSonic's proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VX2270Smh-LED. When you don't need all the power the VX2270Smh-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 30% 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.

1 out of 5 eggsStarted out good but

Pros: IPS, good pixel density, low cost, very thin bezel, looks good

Cons: After about 2 months the OSD randomly comes up on the screen and the buttons are not responsive or work to close and then they reopen. This makes this monitor unusable. 30 day Newegg Warranty expired so now I need to contact the manufacturer

Other Thoughts: Will re-rate after attempts/fix

5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed.

Pros: Picture quality is better than any I've seen. Blacks are truly black. I don't know why Michael G. says otherwise unless he got one that was dropped before he received it. It truly has 100% sRGB color, which means it matches the source. I've never seen better image quality for what the image is INTENDED to be. I have seen monitors that try to intensify the color to make it look better, but it makes it something other than what it should be when they do that.

If you see it on this monitor, then that's the way the camera saw it, and that's the way it will look when you send it for prints. No surprises. True WYSIWYG color editing with this monitor.

No adjustments needed to make this monitor look great.

Can't beat it for the price when it's on sale!

Cons: It makes my old monitor look bad. I will probably have to buy a second one to pair with it instead of using my old monitor to pair with it.

Other Thoughts: Once the controls are set the first time, I don't need them. Monitor goes into standby mode when I power off the computer, so I don't even need to reach the power switch. It will power itself on again when needed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat picture, worthless sound

Pros: The picture is great. The base is sturdy. The viewing angle is great. The monitor has a small frame.

Cons: I understand monitor speakers aren't always the best. However, these are completely worthless.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these, then bought two more. With the second pair, I was going to use the monitor's speakers as I didn't have desktop speakers. I had to get speakers, as these are completely worthless. With maximum volume, you can barely hear anything.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the Price

Pros: Its IPS and has a very thin bezel so its good for a multi-monitor setup

Cons: Its not Vesa compliant so if you want to mount this on a wall you can forget about it (lost one egg for that)

Other Thoughts: its got a built in speak which I here is a very high quality one, if you just want an IPS monitor this monitor aint half bad.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good performing screen with excellent color contrast. Viewsonic X-Series performance at good pricing. Perfect size for my space limitations. Multiple inputs accepted (HDMI, DVI, VGA).

Cons: None so far after 1 month of usage

Other Thoughts: Have always had Viewsonic monitors from the past. Had a 17" CRT monitor, then to a X-series 19" LED monitor which has lasted about 10 years now, and now finally upgraded it to this 22" X-series monitor. My space constraints for a monitor upgraded limited my decisions out there as it is hard to find smaller widescreen monitors, but this one fits the bill, looks good, and has the usual Viewsonic quality that I've become accustomed to.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Excellent viewing angles
-Vibrant colors
-Very bright
-Connectors for VGA, DVI, and HDMI
-Great build quality

Cons: -Horrendous built-in speaker (but you probably already expected that)
-Occasional light bleed from the corners

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this monitor to anyone who needs a cheap IPS panel. For the price, it's a no-brainer.

5 out of 5 eggsStunning for the price!

Pros: Looks far better than I expected! When I first saw the picture I figured it would b a cheap bulky monitor. Though it is a bit bulkier, it is worth the money for the quality. All the cables were included, along with an hdmi and a dvi cable.

Cons: (Minor) Short power cord.

2 out of 5 eggsFirst (and possibly last) purchase of a ViewSonic monitor

Pros: I like the small bezel design of the monitor and the image quality is great.

Cons: The monitor failed after using it for just over 4 months of use. The screen will flicker every 10 - 15 seconds and show an array of vertical multi-colored lines. After contacting ViewSonic they offered an RMA. Unfortunately, the cost to ship this to them is more than $40 dollars. They will not offer any sort of advanced replacement option so even if I decide to return it, I will be waiting at least 2 weeks for a replacement. At This point I will just shop around for a different brand of monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsViewsonic surprises me

Pros: Great colors
Stylish outer design
Sturdy, wide base
HDMI and DVI ins

Cons: Speaker is terrible, but I wasn't intending to use it anyway, so not taking away an egg.

Other Thoughts: This is the first computer monitor I've bought for my very first computer. I was a little skeptical about choosing Viewsonic over, say, Asus or Samsung at first, but this monitor being 10% off at the time was pretty attractive. Now that I've been using it for a few months, I know Viewsonic is not to be doubted. My only regret now is not having gotten the 23" for an extra $20.
