ViewSonic's "FutureProof" 37 and 42-inch LCDs -- don't you believe it


Caveat Emptor folks when checking these highly-touted "future-proof" sets from ViewSonic. Both the 37-inch N3751w ($999) and the 42-inch N4251w ($1499) LCDs feature rock-bottom pricing and integrated ATSC digital tuners, HDMI, S-video, Component, and VGA inputs, 8-millisecond response, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and SPDIF output for releasing audio to your external system. Thing is, if you want to view that full 1080p (1920x1080) resolution spinning outta your game console's hi-def optical disc, well, tough luck Sony sonny, these sets aren't gonna cut it with a panel resolution of only 1366 x 768. We guess the warranty on that supposed future-proofing only lasts 'till the end of year, eh? Oh, and that image above is their N3251 since the product images aren't available with the press-release... is this really so hard ViewSonic?
