- The package
Our Viewsonic VP930b was bought at the retail price of €520 (including 19% VAT). The package was quite big for a 19" TFT monitor, but the LCD monitor was well packaged and secure.
Package contents include a power cord, two connection cables (D-Sub15 and DVI), two CDs (Viewsonic Wizard and Perfect Suite) and quick start guide.
Looking at the screen, its design is very simple. The LCD display comes with its base included, which is quiet heavy, at least compared with other standard 19" TFT monitors. This is probably done to add stability since the height can be adjusted.
The major advantage of the display is its pivot mechanism. You can swivel, tilt, adjust the height with simple moves and the best part is that the mechanism operates very smoothly, at least for the moment. By applying little force, you can move the display up or down .
The LCD panel can be lowered down to the base or raised to a maximum of 16.5cm (table-top to bottom edge). As the Viewsonic specs indicate, the swivel range reaches 135° (from full left to full right), while tilt can be adjusted from 5° (forward) to 20° (backward).
The Pivot action can be performed with a little force, while with Viewsonic's software you can enjoy full A4 page appearance on screen. Ideal for those who view documents, such as lawyers for example:
The OSD menu is complete with many options and information. It is very easy to understand and configure all functions.
At the back, you will find the connection and power ports. Viewsonic offers 1x DVI and 2x D-Sub15 inputs, which can rotated by pressing the "2" button at the front.
It would be great if the VP930b had PiP mode, but this isn't anything to worry over. In order to avoid cable chaos, the VP930b comes with three clips on the back of the stand, to help keep them organized. Very useful.
