However if you\u2019re looking for an LCD monitor that\u2019s ready to go out of the box, the BenQ GW2280 Eye Care may be the right fit for you.\r\nViewing Angle\r\nAn LED type monitor can offer a fairly well viewing experience, and the ViewSonic VA2855SMH only proves that. While LCDs can offer a clearer picture, like the Dell UltraSharp U2412M, they are often more pricey. Dell\u2019s monitor can also be adjusted, something that cannot be said about the ViewSonic VA2855SMH. The included base does not offer any ability to adjust at all, resulting in users mainly having one viewing angle. This is a problem easily solved with a VESA mount, as the ViewSonic VA2855SMH is VESA compatible.\r\nDurability\r\nAnother reason to ditch the included stand and instead opt for a VESA mount: the stand does not feel durable at all. A knock down from an otherwise great monitor, the fact that it can not be adjusted at all does not help it. The monitor itself feels fantastic, and mounted will certainly never risk being compromised. The best way to use this monitor is without the stand.\r\nPorts\/Expandability\r\nThe ViewSonic VA2855SMH comes with a VGA, HDMI, Audio line-in and out ports. Compared to HDMI VGA offers a less crisp picture, though it seems like ViewSonic wants consumers to use that display option, as it comes with a VGA cable upon purchase.

Though if you don\u2019t connect anything to your monitor this shouldn\u2019t be a problem.\r\nValue\r\nA detriment to the value of the ViewSonic VA2855SMH is the included stand, however the monitor does not share the same problems. Used on a VESA compatible mount, the VA2855SMH offers a competitive picture that\u2019s hard to beat when it comes to work productivity. Including stereo speakers, while not the best quality, is still a neat feature to include. What could have increased its value is some added USB ports, but for the price the selection is good enough.\r\nViewSonic VA2855SMH Wrap Up\r\nDespite its pitfalls, the ViewSonic VA2855SMH manages to overcome them with a monitor that impresses and gets the job done. Once you leave behind the included stand and if you are alright with having no USB ports, the VA2855SMH will impress with low power consumption, optimized view settings, and two HDMI ports to switch between inputs.
