“ ViewSonic VA703b - LCD display - TFT - 17" - 1280 x 1024 - 280 cd/m2 - 600:1 - 8 ms - 0.264 mm - VGA - black „
This is a fairly standard flat screen.
In a basic black cover the screen is quite large with five buttons in the centre underneath. The stand is quite chunky with a large slightly slanted vertical and a circular horizontal (with a slightly odd multi-facet design - presumably just for aesthetic appearance...). The screen can be rotated back and forth but not up or down. Which can get very painful if you don't have it lifted to the right height.
The central button on it is the power button (this is green when the screen is on and receiving signal and orange when left on without) - can't really say much about that!
The menus are very easy to operate. Button one is used to bring up the menus and exit. The up and down buttons to (surprise, surprise) move up and down and button 2 to select. They include all the standard options (brightness, colour, moving). There are also shortcuts to brightness and contrast (the arrows) and auto adjust (2). I do use the auto adjust about every two weeks just to reset the alignment etc. This takes a couple of seconds and can make a clear difference.
In a bright, well lit office (natural and artificial) I do find I have to reduce the brightness an amount, but the contrast does not seem affected.
I did have any problems setting it up - like any screen very easy to just plug in.
No matter if you use it for entertainment in the home or for intensive graphics tasks, ViewSonic's 17" VA703b fits the bill perfectly. Thanks to an 8ms video response time, depictions of movies, games or scrolling text will impress with their smooth, full-motion. A 600: 1 contrast ratio (typ.) and 280cd/m² of brightness (typ.) lends this elegantly-designed model great display quality in vivid, true-to-life color. Screen adjustments are child's play via the OSD and can be safely locked in. This slim bezel LCD is VESA compliant - it will also look great mounted on your wall. In addition, Kensington security port theft deterrence will ensure your investment is effectively protected. The VA703b LCD display provides outstanding performance for any application.
