The VW195U differs from the previous model with one letter in the model name. The letter U instead of S denotes a digital interface and a fast matrix.
Indeed, the response time of this monitor is declared to be only 2 milliseconds as measured according to the GtG method. It means the monitor employs response time compensation technology as such a high speed cannot be achieved without it.
The monitor only differs from the previous model in this review with the stickers. It has the same nice-looking case on a black plastic stand.
The stand is the same, too. It allows you to adjust the tilt of the screen and can be replaced with a VESA-compatible mount.
The monitor is equipped with digital and analog connectors on one side from the stand and with a power connector and audio input on the other side.
Like with the previous model, the buttons are placed in the bottom right corner of the front panel. The Power button is highlighted with a soft LED which is blue at work and red in sleep mode. Quick access is provided to the Splendid feature, to the brightness and sound volume settings, and to the automatic adjustment of analog signal.
The menu is the same as in the previous model and has the same drawbacks. It opens up on the Splendid tab and doesn’t remember the last changed option. Options take two pages in some menu screens.
The monitor has 90% brightness and 80% contrast by default. I achieved a 100nit white by reducing both to 51%. Color gradients are reproduced without banding at any settings. Darks are displayed properly, too. Lights merge into white if you increase the contrast setting above its default. The monitor’s brightness is regulated by means of backlight modulation at a frequency of 215Hz.
