Poor color uniformity
The ViewSonic V3D231 monitor is another way to get 3D if you want an alternative to active 3D. With the choice between active and passive 3D I would tend to use passive myself, but that would be with monitors that were equal in other regards. The ViewSonic unfortunately underperformed on the bench with poor color uniformity, very poor low light grayscale performance, and a lack of peak light output. It also has a contrast ratio that is very poor for the screen size and lighting technology used.
Delivers snappy visuals and surprisingly good 3D for PC gaming.
Priced at around $399, the 23" V3D231offers a sharp, vibrant picture and looks outstanding in any dimension. For PC games that are not native 3D applications however, be prepared to spend some time getting them to work properly with the V3D231 and the TriDef 3D software.
Again, this isn't entirely the fault of Viewsonic or TriDef 3D-it's just the lamentable lack of a universal, standardized technology for 3D PC gaming.
Brilliant- 24-inch widescreen LED with native 1080p
Consumers will be pleased to find that this Viewsonic LED monitor complies with Energy Saver and best pixel policies. In addition, it is certified for Windows 7 and in some cases the included driver disc is not even needed. For input, there is one D-sub (analog RGB) and one DVI-D (digital) port, but no HDMI ports are included. If you plan to utilize this monitor with HDMI-only devices, you can purchase a HDMI-to-DVI converter cable.
CCFL backlighting - not as slim or environmentally friendly as LED based displays
The ViewSonic VX2258wm is a multi-touch, 21.5" LCD monitor designed to accommodate a desktop. It uses Infrared Optical Imaging Technology to deliver multi-touch functionality to desktop users, which is a first of its kind.
