The ViewSonic VG712s is yet another inexpensive 17” LCD monitor to visit our labs.
It is a very simple device and its functionality is no wider than that of most of the above-described models. The stand is not tall, but the screen is rather high above the ground thanks to the speakers located below it. You can only adjust the tilt of the screen here.
The monitor has both analog and digital inputs, which makes it somewhat more appealing. Besides that, there’s an audio input and a connector for the external power adapter on the back panel.
The monitor is controlled with the buttons on its front panel. Following ViewSonic’s tradition, they are not comprehensibly labeled: “1” and “2” instead of “Menu” and “Exit”. The labels are pressed out on the small buttons, so they are barely legible.
