The performance of ViewSonic's VX924 is a mixed bag. It boasts impressive specs, but the image doesn't quite live up to expectations.
The 19" screen runs at a native resolution of 1280 x 1024 and weighs 6.7kg with stand. At 43 x 47 x 20cm, it's one of the more svelte 19" screens on the market. The TFT panel boasts a 3ms response time, pitching it squarely at gaming, watching DVDs, and playing back fast-paced animations.
The sleek silver and black screen features a clean look with a rounded bezel. The screen itself features DVI and VGA inputs, but lacks USB connectors. The picture quality is comparable across both inputs, though the DVI connector provides a slightly cleaner image.
Five buttons on the bottom edge of the panel provide access to the on-screen menu, which is in turn well laid-out and easy to adjust. The buttons provide quick selection between the two screen inputs, but the screen doesn't include any audio capability.
By default, the auto-adjustment option leaves the screen very bright and the display loses a little contrast at the darker end of the spectrum. The screen documentation claims a viewing angle of 140 degrees, but we found the picture deteriorated if viewed from extreme angles in any direction. The on-screen menu allows the user to make fine adjustments to image quality, but we found it generally a little too bright, especially under fluorescent lights. Colour balance was good, and although the tones were a little oversaturated by default, they were easily brought into check using the menu.
The VX924 features a basic stand with no height adjustment and somewhat limited tilt adjustment. Thankfully, VESA mounts have been included to help integrate it into an office.
The monitor ships with a full suite of cables, and a three-year warranty rounds out the package.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
