ViewSonic doles out a half dozen LCDs, forgets to make 'em interesting

Darren Murph

It's been a hot minute since ViewSonic cranked out any new LCDs, but the drought is officially ending today. The firm has just blessed the universe with a fresh half-dozen, a few of which pack 1080p panels and respectable price points. Both the VT3245 ($649) and VT3745 ($799) feature a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, 4,000:1 contrast ratio and a five millisecond response time, while the latter is somehow tailored for streaming media. Then there's the N4285, which also sports a 1080p LCD and a dynamic 10,000:1 contrast ratio; for whatever reason, this one's priced at $999, so we're guessing it's... um, larger? The VT2042 ($299), VT2342 ($349) and VT2645 ($449) are all scaled back versions with lower resolutions (save for the 2342, which does Full HD), though none of 'em are particularly noteworthy. Peep the read link for ship dates and the like, but good look finding out non-critical information like "panel size" and "available inputs."
