Continuing its heritage of delivering display innovations to the mainstream market, ViewSonic today unveiled a line of widescreen LCD monitors, targeted at performance and value-focused consumers.
This new series of widescreen displays represents the latest offerings in ViewSonic's campaign to announce 25 products in the fourth quarter of 2006. With estimated street prices (ESP) starting at $199, these ViewSonic displays feature an ultra-fast response time of 5 milliseconds and improved screen performance for gaming, video and business applications.
The ViewSonic offerings announced include the VX2235wm, the VX2035wm and the VX1935wm, 22-, 20- and 19-inch widescreen LCDs with an ESP of $399, $349 and $199 respectively.
