Jobs today increasingly demand a multiple display setup to increase overall worker productivity. I personally use a dual display setup with my PC at work and then a laptop. This allows me to have one screen open to write, another screen open to work on images, and the laptop to browse and take home with me. Even a large monitor is more difficult to navigate then having an “A” screen and a “B screen” where the lines are always divided. In this post I’ll review some of the best-rated monitors of the year that are also VESA compatible which for monitors means that they have either 75 x 75mm, 100mm x 100mm holes or 200mm x 100mm holes. This allows them to be used with stands or wall mounts that are compatible with these sizes of holes. Even if you aren’t buying dual display monitors online right now it’s still a good idea to look for a VESA compatible monitor if you plan to expand your setup in the future.
ViewSonic VX2250WM-LED 22-Inch Computer Monitor – VESA Wall Mount Compatible
In my personal opinion, a 22 inch monitor is perfect for use with a monitor stand on your computer desk. It’s not too big or too small. While you could certainly use a larger monitor if you end up mounting it on the wall two or three 22 inch monitors on your desktop seem the easiest to navigate between. If you’re looking for a dual display monitor for a gaming setup, then I’ve listed the top rated VESA compliant monitors by order of size in a comparison table below.
One of the most popular monitors this year is the Viewsonic VX2250WM-LED 22 inch monitor which for its price and specifications gives you a great picture quality, warranty, and is of course 100mm x 100mm VESA compliant.
The environmentally friendly VX2250WM-LED uses LED backlighting technology on a LCD (liquid crystal display) which consumes 40% less energy than traditional monitors and doesn’t use mercury. In addition to these benefits, the LED backlights on this monitor are dimmed completely in order to producer truer blacks than have been seen with LED/LCD technology before. Additional details include a Mega 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio for a large array of color and detail, full 1980×1080 HD resolution, and a 5ms response time for smooth motion while watching movies or other video.
Viewsonic uses one of the highest grade panels in the industry and backs it up with its industry leading “Pixel Performance Guarantee”. The parts and labor are 3 years standard.
Overall the price for this monitor is as cheap or cheaper than other monitors with similar specifications and quality, but if you’re considering purchasing a lot of monitors for your office or work space it is tempting to purchase a similar 20 inch monitor for about 66% of the overall price. If you’re looking for a great gaming monitor, then I highly recommend Viewsonic’s new VX2453Mh-LED series as well which is VESA compatible and has a faster response time.
