Verdict

A 26-inch LCD screen is really a joy to work with, but the price of Rs 30,999 could stop you from buying this one today. A 24-inch TN panel LCD screen is considerably cheaper, and also runs at the same resolution. Only those who want a larger screen would consider this. If you want your media running on a large desktop screen, then the VP2650WB is for you.

Viewsonic VP2650WB detailed review


Almost Affordable

Sleek LCD screens have taken the place of the huge ugly boxes that CRTs were. With smaller footprints and larger screen sizes, even screens as large as 24 and 26 inches are practical for everyday use.

 

The 26-inch Viewsonic VP2650WB runs at a resolution of 1920 x 1200 — the same used on 24-inch screens. The design of the screen is simple and nothing like some of the more stylish but smaller screens. There are no inbuilt speakers, no rounded bezels here. A fairly thin border surrounds the screen, but the back is rather bulky. The stand mechanism is useful and allows the screen to be lifted, rotate and even swivel. The stand is sturdy and doesn’t let the screen shake a lot. The raising and lowering system is smooth, but gives a little more resistance than some of the similarly behaving stands we’ve seen.

 

The VP2650WB is a TN panel, which means the best of colours and viewing angles can’t be expected. With the screen can be set up without any tweaking, the colours are too gaudy. With the screen calibrated, the colours and contrast improved significantly. The colours look natural and the clarity is perfect. This is a large screen, and if you sit too close to it, the edges start to look at little blurry. Viewing angles in general are pretty good for a TN panel, except when looked at from below. Contrast ratios are also decent.

 

Other than DVI and VGA, the screen can be used as a USB hub. There are four ports at the back of the screen. Using the screen is also simple. All the navigation is done through four buttons on the front of the screen.
