ViewSonic Launching 'Frameless' IPS LED Panels

ViewSonic launched its new VX70Smh-LED Series of desktop monitors which include the 27-inch VX2770Smh-LED, the 23-inch VX2370Smh-LED, and the 22-inch VX2270Smh-LED. All three feature a professional grade widescreen SuperClear IPS panel with a frameless bezel for "displays that look as good as they perform." Prices start at $189 and shipments begin this month.

According to the specs, the displays feature a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, an impressive 30,000,000:1 MEGA Dynamic Contrast Ratio, and wide 178-degree viewing angles. They also feature two base-mounted 1.5w speakers with SRS Premium Sound, and several video inputs including HDMI and DVI with HDCP (High Definition Content Protection).

"Our new VX70Smh-LED Series offers the best combination of performance and features in the industry, and we’ve sweetened the deal by packaging it up in a beautiful frameless bezel design," said Erik Willey, LCD monitor and PC product marketing director at ViewSonic. "Available in a range of sizes, these displays are ideal for consumers, gamers and multimedia enthusiasts alike."

The spec list also reports that the monitors have a typical contrast ratio of 1000:1, a typical brightness of 250 cd/m2, and a 7ms (GTG) response time. The light source has a minimum lifespan of 30,000 hours, and the overall power consumption resides within 20W and 27W, depending on its current state.

"This environmentally friendly, mercury-free Series delivers an energy savings of up to 40% against comparatively sized displays," the company said. "ViewSonic’s Eco-mode feature furthers these savings by helping extend display life. Teamed with a standard 3-year limited warranty and the industry’s best pixel performance policy, even the most discerning display user can feel confident in their investment."

The 27-inch VX2770Smh-LED and the 23-inch VX2370Smh-LED will be available in early October for respective ESPs of $319 and $189. A 22-inch version within this Series (VX2270Smh-LED) is expected to be available in early December for an ESP of $159.

    "Full HD 1920 x 1080", what?
    Sadly, "Full" is 1920 x 1200, an endangered species even at these low resolutions.
    Why are these manufacturers all fixated on this 16:9 cheapness?
    If you want sales, ditch this losing resolution, 16:10 is the requirement I hear from most of my users.
    16:9 on a laptop is not even good enough.

    Indeed, "Frameless" and "Full" have become marketing fantasy terms by all these panel makers lately.

    Saying it over and over doesn't make it true...

    Why are we still talking about 1080 nowadays? 4K is the way to go!

    1920x1080 is a TV/Video resolution while 1920x1200 is more a traditional computer screen.
    A/V folk have different requirements than computer people.
    But the manufacturers need to get volume up to bring prices down so they try to dump TV format screens on to the PC world. For most people that will do fine of course but some of use need 1200, 1440 or 1600 lines please :-)

    I have been rocking the same 24" Dell LCD with 1920x1200 resolution for nearly 7 years!!! Have LCD manufactures digressed over this time? Is there even any reason for me to upgrade???

    This is the one thing I hope apple will make the industry change for. When virtually every 27"+ computer monitor has half the pixels of a 10" iPad, people begin to wonder wtf the screen makers have been doing for the last 10 years aside from perfecting their "milking" skill.
