ViewSonic VX2025wmViewSonic must be really tired of Belinea. The "little” German manufacturer has benefited from the VP191b by releasing the 10 19 20, and then they were the first to release a 20" MVA 8ms, the 10 20 35W. Six month later, ViewSonic finally uses this panel.
It was placed in a VX body for the traditional gamer product line (VX924, VX922...). The foot isn´t vertically adjustable, there’s no pivot mode or specific options in the OSD. The price isn´t particularly low either, which is too bad. Also, this series doesn´t yet benefit from the zero dead pixels warranty introduced with the VP series. And to finish, this is a wide monitor, whereas the new VP2030b (see below, with a zero dead pixels warranty) is in 4/3. Comparing these two monitors was particularly interesting.
Indeed, ViewSonic seems to have taken too long to see AU Optronics´ 8ms MVA panels interest. In the end, however, there was a nice surprise. Standard color quality rendering was greatly improved! This was the first ViewSonic monitor that we received that has such good color settings. It is also the first LCD based on an AU Optronics panel that doesn´t come out with inaccurate parameters. Whom do we have to thank for that? AU Optronics, who would have improved settings? Or ViewSonic, who would change them in their factory? We are not yet quite sure and will have to receive more monitors like this VX2025wm based on the new revision of this panel. It isn´t exactly the same panel as the Belinea.
For response time the German monitor and the ViewSonic are equivalent.
Finally, as usual with ViewSonic even if dead sub-pixels aren´t covered by the warranty, full dead pixels are. This monitor has a zero white or black pixel warranty. Belinea is cheaper but doesn´t come with such guarantees.
