ViewSonic VX924

The 19-inch ViewSonic VX924 features a 4 millisecond (ms) average video response time across the entire colour scale. It has Dynamic Structure and Amplified Impulse technologies, which control the impulse timing and voltage in order to improve the liquid crystal response time to 4ms and combine to replace blurs and ghosts with clear images. These technologies also support rates of up to 250 frames per second across the entire colour scale. The technology produces front-of-screen performance for motion video, since the majority of video transitions on games and digital entertainment occur within these intermediate ranges. The VX924 has a native resolution of 1280x1024, a contrast ratio of 500:1 and a brightness ratio of 270-nits. All these performance features are packed into the floating head, slim bezel design with an adjustable viewing angle of 140 degrees horizontal and 130 degrees vertical.
