Default [PC Monitor Review] ViewSonic VP912b 19" LCD

I picked up the ViewSonic VP912b 19" LCD from NewEgg.com for $475.99 and it is a very nice monitor. It is VERY bright and everything is displayed very crisp and clear. The monitor has a great response time of 12ms and comes with both Analog RGB and Digital DVI cables. Gaming is great on this monitor, everything displays very well, I have played both World of Warcraft and Battlefield 2 Demo on this screen and they look awesome. Over the weekend Stang and I watched a movie on the LCD and it looked great. I am very happy with this purchase, so much so I want to replace my second monitor which is a ViewSonic 17" CRT with another VP912b.

i'm using a 19" seanix lcd flatscreen... somethingorother, don't ask me for a model number. it's nice and non-headache giving... first thing i noticed was a huge reduction in headaches and eye pain afterwards, as well as exclamations of 'holy jesus god!' whenever i did something ;p
