Veiwsonic 1932 wm LED

Regards.

btw whats the main difference b/w 16:10 and 16:9 aspect ratio, does it matter? samsung got 16:9 while viewsonic's is 16:10.

Aspect ratio is the ratio of its width to height (width:height). Like for example old TVs had a resolution of 640x480 which is 4:3. 720p is 1280x720 which comes to 16:9. 16:9 is wider.

^x2

BTW how much are they priced at

^ around 13000 each.

My vote is for ViewSonic as I am using it since 1 year with excellent result. My model is:

Although Samsung in photo is also looking good but I have seen many failed samsung LCD's.

Get this

VIEW SONIC VX-1940W 19" SILVER BLACK WIDESCREEN

I have used this at my office and am very satisfied with this

Go for veiwsonic one, apart from little less brightness from samsung one, its over all better.

Yeah but there is only thing.

Samsung is 20 inches and Viewsonic is 19. Originally i thought about getting Viewsonic too but there is this size difference b/w two.

btw: thanks for replying.

viewsonis has 16:10 aspect ratio so i don't think you would feel the difference that much even if you place them side by side.... + its an LED so it also covers up the brightness difference as well.

19, 20 ka difference hay lol :)... anyways, up to you to decide.

thank you all. the last 2/3 days were very tiring and hectic for me but in the next week i am definitely buying one any LCD under 15K.

@Faisal. yeah you are rite the faraq is of unees/bees (literally) so no worries :D. however i got some other queries.

Q1: What is LED technology?

Q2: Wont HD movies (720p) will get letter boxed (the black bars) @ 16:10 aspect ratio?

Regards.

there are movies with 16:10 ratio and then there are with 16:9 ratio, one way or another you will get the boxes

Well LED stands for light emitting diode… its different than TFT technology. For details, you can check out Wikipedia.

Yes, a fully 720p or 1080p resolution-ed movie will still show small black strips on the borders. But now days 95% movies that I download are of less resolution-ed ranging between 500 to 600p but they r labeled as 720p. So even if you have 16.9 A.R. lcd, there will still be strips.

what about dell sp2309 ??

Its a good LCD, buy it if you can but be warned what I said about LCDs with more than 20-21 inches above

Yes its good TFT lcd with lots of connectivity options. a little hieght adjustment problems though... but over all good for the price.

BTW how much it costs here?

I forgot I answered this on another thread

For regular use the LCD is good, but in terms of gaming or even picture viewing, it slightly turns one off. But this issue isnt just in viewsonic alone.

For some reason any LCD above 20 inches seems to have this issue of dull color and low brightness

The contrast ratio is slightly low, and there is no option for Vivid color. otherwise the refresh rate is good and you can hook it up to a 360 or PS3.

i have connected both PC and 360 onto the monitor, and also connected my speakers onto the monitor so that I can use it for 360 as well.

Regarding aspect ratio, if you are using a PC, you can stretch the movie to fit available resolution. For example, in GOM Player, pressing Ctrl-Enter would do the job, which I find very convenient to use, and like discussed earlier, the difference is unnoticeable. Only this way, the strips go away.

okay thanks all. Just one more thing :cool:

i called galaxy to get info on 1932wm and they told me its available for 13200 and told me further that if i am interested in LED then there is also another monitor available

HP x20LED for 14200/-

Now at this point i have made my mind about viewsonic but suggestion never hurts so what you guys think (not keeping price in view)

Sorry cant find any reviews on it.... why not ask the shop wala to giv ya a demo by linking it onto a lappy.

Okay. thanks to deffury, faisal qureshi, and everyone else who gave their valuable suggestions.

Got the viewsonic 1932 LED. Its a little different after using LG flatron for 6 years but its good. Colors are vivid and DVI is freakin awesome. There is an option when using DVI that make videos 16:9 to run on full screen ie without black bars on top and bottom with almost negligible stretching (its not available when using VGA..weird).
