ViewSonic has joined the host of manufacturers currently making low-cost IPS monitors with this 23-inch VX2336s-LED display. Unlike many of its rivals, ViewSonic isn't out to impress at all costs. In fact, the firm has kept things very basic in this monitor, with a response time announced at 14 ms and no HDMI port. But while, on paper, it would be easy to write this monitor off, in practice, the VX2336s-LED holds a few nice surprises that can't be spotted on its spec sheet. Making a low-cost product look stylish can be really hard work. And equipping this 23-inch monitor with a glossy black plastic casing doesn't hide the fact that this is first and foremost an entry-level device. Plus, that chunky square stand just screams cheap. The lack of hardware options doesn't do much to improve things either. In fact, apart from the wide viewing angels brought by the IPS panel, this monitor offers a bare minimum of features. The stand, for example, only allows you to tilt the screen very slightly, and video connections comprise VGA and DVI ports but no HDMI. Audio, on the other hand, isn't catered for at all—this is a monitor, and a monitor only! With a response time announced at 14 ms, this 23-inch monitor has no chance of winning over gamers.
The floodgates have opened for cheap IPS technology and the screens keep on flowing. Our latest low-priced IPS candidate is the new ViewSonic VX2336s-LED 23-inch Full HD PC monitor. The ViewSonic VP2365-LED, too, is one of the brave new low-cost IPS army members, with a UK price of £200 and US price of $349. Costing just £160 in the UK or $198 in the US, however, the ViewSonic VX2336s-LED is even more affordable. Inevitably though, something has to give. Most obvious is the loss of a fully adjustable stand. The ViewSonic VX2336s-LED gets a very rudimentary tilt-only affair. The chassis itself isn't exactly luxurious, either. Arguably what really matters is how the quality of that Xtreme View IPS LCD panel stacks up. Is it as gorgeous as the more expensive ViewSonic VP2365-LED? Likewise, how does it compare to the conceptually similar AOC i2352Vh, which packs a cheap IPS panel into a similarly no-frills enclosure? It's all about the image quality. That's our number one priority when it comes to PC monitors, so we're willing to forgive all manner of peripheral faux pas if the screen's a corker.
