ViewSonic's marriage of 1080p HDTV to a PC display gives the company a leg up on the competition - most of the other vendors out there default to 1080i/720P for their native resolution, which is fine for most video content, but comes up short on a PC - thanks to a native resolution of just 1280 x 720.
With the VT2230, ViewSonic is looking to capitalize on the dual-purpose market by designing a unit that can be a great PC monitor and a good HDTV.
Building a great PC monitor was obviously the easy part for ViewSonic, which has years of experience manufacturing LCD displays that have become one of the PC industry standards. Here, the VT2230 does not disappoint. The unit offers a native resolution of 1920x1080, which proves to be very agreeable on a 22-inch display. Integrated speakers are another plus, while a dual-mount capability (wall or stand) makes it a fit for most work environments.
