GO LED. GO GREEN. No, it's not some whippersnapper's 2010 Presidential campaign slogan, it's the motto of ViewSonic's newest LCD monitor range. The VG36-LED series is comprised of two units as of now, the 22-inch VG2236wm-LED and the 24-inch VG2436wm-LED. Both of these guys boast LED-backlit panels, a native 1,920 x 1,080 screen resolution, VGA / DVI connectivity options, a borderline comical 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and EPEAT Gold certifications for all the Sierra Club members in attendance. You'll also get a stand with more adjustments than your mother could ever figure out, and thankfully, neither one is positioned to break the bank -- they're available now for $229 and $259 in order of mention.
