Verdict

The VX2835 is also not the entertainment screen we hoped it'd be. That's not to say it was bad, but we recommend you buy a 24-inch monitor based on a true 8-bit panel to really add sparkle to your visual experience. This is only for you if you really need the extra inches - like surfing with your wireless combo kit from the comfort of your bed with your monitor a good few feet away.

ViewSonic VX2835WM detailed review

TV Replacement?




ViewSonic has delivered a gargantuan monitor in a size we’ve never seen before—28 whole inches. The resolution is the same as a 23 or 24 inch LCD—1920 x 1200 pixels—which equates to proper HD resolution, as 1080p can be natively displayed.

The monitor itself is huge, and the enclosure thick—thicker than what we’ve seen for TN panels. We were surprised at the light weight though—the BenQ FP 241C (S-PVA panel based) weighs more. There’s no swivel or height adjustment on the ViewSonic—a sure sign of its value orientation.

It’s geared towards being a proper entertainment system accompaniment with Composite, S-Video, Component and HDMI connects. What shocked us was the lack of PC connectivity options—one measly D-Sub and no DVI—inexcusable!

During our DisplayMate colour test, we noticed a few problems with colour purity—typically TN, this.

Our test DVD was nirvana on such a large screen, but at times, dark edges of leaves blend with the shadows—this is a common with all monitors, and if you’re looking for it, the effect is quite noticeable.

While playing games like F.E.A.R. and Oblivion, we noticed the issue with contrast again—especially with the former, which is a dark and atmospheric game. Oblivion—a much brighter game with lots of foliage and outdoor scenes—looked gorgeous.

The VX2835 is also not the entertainment screen we hoped it’d be. That’s not to say it was bad, but we recommend you buy a 24-inch monitor based on a true 8-bit panel to really add sparkle to your visual experience. This is only for you if you really need the extra inches—like surfing with your wireless combo kit from the comfort of your bed with your monitor a good few feet away.
