Viewsonic has introduced the 23" VP2365wb and 25,5" VP2655wb monitors in the Pro series earlier this week. Both monitors feature an IPS panel, offering both horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 178°. The technology is also to account for a better colour display, making the screens suitable for professional applications such as image or video editing.
The 23" model has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, while the VP2655 sports a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. Both screens feature a static contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a brightness of respectively 300 and 400 cd/m2. One of the disadvantages that come from using an IPS panel are the response times. Specified at 14 ms gray-to-gray, the monitors aren't very comfortable for enthusiastic gamers.
The screens can be used both horizontal and vertically and are adjustable in height. The monitor contains a USB-hub with four USB ports and can be connected by means of a D-Sub or DVI connector. The VP2365wb and the VP2655wb have a typical power consumption of respectively 45 watt and 110 watt.
Both screens come with three years of warranty. The VP2365wb has a recommended price of $400 USD and the VP2655wb will set you back $1300 USD.
