If you\u2019re looking for the best monitor for watching movies or the best computer monitors in a low key office setting, the ViewSonic 1080p Monitor wants your number. Due to getting two monitors for the price of one, it\u2019s the ideal choice for quickly amassing a competent workstation. And its contrast ratio works in your favor for enjoying entertaining shows and movies.\n\n\n \n ViewSonic 1080p Monitor \n\n\n\n\n\n\nCheck Price\n\n\n\n\nWhy We Like It \u2013 ViewSonic 1080p Monitor\nThe ideal choice for a very tight budget, the ViewSonic 1080p Monitor comes with two monitors featuring good contrast ratio\u2014but more importantly gets your office up and running as fast as possible.\n\n\n\nPros\n\n\n \tGood contrast ratio\n \tDisplayPort + legacy ports\n \tDual monitor value pack\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCons\n\n\n \tDoes not come with stands\n \tLacks HDMI ports\n\n\n\n\n\nPerformance\nWhat\u2019s most notable with ViewSonic 1080p Monitors is contrast ratio. It\u2019s three times more than average, coming out to a 3000:1 ratio. It comes in handy when you\u2019re watching dimly lit cinema. Refresh rate is also above average, maxing out at 75Hz, though the 6.5ms response time is abysmal for gaming. Anything above 3 or 4ms isn\u2019t ideal.\n\nRelated: For a faster response time, check out our Viewsonic Elite XG270 review.\nViewing Angle\nBoth monitors have 178-degree viewing angles. That means you won\u2019t see a reduction in visual quality until you\u2019re nearly aligned with the plane of the monitor. So yes, you can comfortably lean any which way and never have to worry about quality reduction.\nDurability\nSince these are bargain-bin monitors, the plastic material used looks a little cheaper than what you\u2019d see on a Dell Computer Ultrasharp U2415. It\u2019s practically a whole step down in terms of quality, but still hard plastic so it will do just fine. However, neither monitor comes with a stand, meaning VESA mounting or purchase stands separately.\nPorts & Expandability\nSpeaking of lacking features, ViewSonic 1080p LED Monitors have no HDMI ports whatsoever. A single monitor has one DisplayPort, audio jack, and legacy ports DVI-D and VGA. You get twice as many since there\u2019s two monitors.\n\nRelated: If you like monitors with HDMI ports, take a look at our Sceptre E255B 1658A review.\nValue\nWho is the ViewSonic 1080p Monitor for, exactly? Multitaskers, office spaces, and entertainment. Gaming is far better handled by the BenQ EL2870U, but if you\u2019re working on one monitor you can always bring up Netflix on the other. The Dell Ultrasharp U2415 is a better choice, but with the ViewSonic VA2452SM_H2 you\u2019re getting two monitors for the price of one!\nViewSonic 1080p Monitor Wrap Up\nFor those who have no interest in gimmicks and just need office monitors, the ViewSonic 1080p Monitor offers a great 2-for-1 deal. As long as you have DisplayPort, DVI-D, or VGA, you can make that bet. Despite being cheap, it has surprisingly good contrast ratio. And since they\u2019re affordable, grabbing a pair of stands isn\u2019t out of the question.
