I would like to remind you of the most interesting models tested for this review.
The ViewSonic VX1940w comes with a new TN matrix that has a native resolution of 1680x1050 pixels. The increased resolution is a questionable thing but some people will like it, especially as the monitor is overall free from serious drawbacks. Its matrix also features response time compensation which is still a rare thing among widescreen 19-inchers.
The NEC MultiSync LCD1970NXp is one of the few available 19-inch monitors with a VA matrix that ensures good color reproduction. Unfortunately, it has a high level of black brightness and lacks response time compensation, which makes it unsuitable for games and movies. But it will surely make a good monitor for work.
Among the other models LG’s L1954TQ and L1972H can be mentioned. They are based on fast matrixes with an aspect ratio of 5:4. The former model has a lower level of RTC errors while the latter offers somewhat better color reproduction and more uniform brightness of the backlight. Both are going to be a good choice for gamers.
