This monitor looks rather queer because of its very tall stand. The distance from the surface of the desk to the bottom edge of the screen is nearly 15 centimeters and cannot be adjusted. The base only allows you to change the tilt of the screen.
This design is going to be improper if you’ve got a tall desk – it is just uncomfortable to look at the screen up from below. On the other hand, this model would look better than the VP171s in a shop window. But I have already said it in this article that beauty and comfort are often opposite things when it comes to LCD monitors.
Unlike the VP171s, the VX715 is equipped with two inputs only (analog and digital); it’s impossible to connect two computers with analog inputs to it simultaneously. The power adapter is built into the case.
The control buttons look cuter than the predecessor’s, but the overall principle has remained the same. The monitor is still controlled with four buttons, and the labels under the buttons are as laconic as before. Well I can understand that they have to write “2” instead of “Select” on the VP171s just to fit the label on the button, but here the labels are painted below the buttons and the reasons for that brevity is unclear.
