ViewSonic this week rolled out its new VX2460h-LED monitor, a 24-inch LED-backlit display with what the company claims is the thinnest profile available for its size and class category. Whether or not there's a 24-inch monitor out there that's skinnier, no one's going to call ViewSonic's newest panel chunky, as the widescreen display measures a scant quarter-of-an-inch thick at the bezel (full dimensions are 22.87 inches (W) by 17.60 inches (H) by 7.64 inches (D) with stand).
We're not big on monitor specs because they're so easily manipulated and/or misrepresented, but for what it's worth, ViewSonic rates the VX2460h-LED as having a 2ms response time (GTG), 40,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,000:1 typical), 250 cd/m2 brightness (typical), and 170-degree (H) by 160-degree (V) viewing angles.
Connectivity consists of a pair of HDMI ports and a D-Sub (VGA) port that drive the Full HD 1080p screen resolution. It has On-Screen Display (OSD) controls, an anti-glare hard coating (3H), 3.5mm jack for audio output from HDMI source, an Eco-mode for up to 35 percent energy savings, and sRGB color correction technology.
The VX2460h-LED will start shipping in late May for $199 MSRP and is backed by a 3-year warranty.
