Solid performance and a flexible design make the VP2365 worth considering for those who want a basic IPS-panel display with a wide viewing angle.
The $349 ViewSonic VP2365 is a bit smaller (23 inches) and a little lower in resolution (1920 by 1080) than the three highest-ranked displays in our recent roundup of widescreen LCD monitors. Its physical appearance is unimpressive, too. But it did well in our tests of screen quality.
Thicker than most displays equipped with LED backlights, the VP2365 has a nondescript matte-black exterior and antiglare screen. The five small silver buttons on the front, just below the screen, are easy to locate but aren’t particularly attractive–and it can be difficult to tell what each button is for until after you touch it and the menus appear.
The VP2365 is fully adjustable, and also includes a handy four-port USB hub. Its connections are limited to the basic DVI and VGA alternatives.
In our screen-performance assessment, the VP2365 did well. Our jury awarded this monitor a Very Good score in text legibility, color quality, screen uniformity, and range of viewing angles. It received a score of Good in our motion tests.
Offering solid performance and a flexible design, the VP2365 is worth a look if you want the wide viewing angle of an IPS panel, but you don’t require HDMI or DisplayPort inputs.
