What is 1ms response time?

Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies.

Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Full HD 1080p resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio

The VX39 Series features a widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution that is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.

The Viewsonic VX39’s panel offers another new trend in the LCD panel market, the16:9 aspect ratio. This new aspect ratio not only natively supports Full HD 1080p content, but displays Full HD without distortion. For example, a 1920x1200 resolution monitor will also support Full HD 1080p but it will either stretch to fit into a full screen or would show blank side bars to avoid distortion. With a 16:9 aspect ratio panel, you will get the most out of your HD content since it is natively designed in this format.

The Power of HDMI

HDMI is one of the most powerful and widely available communication standards that connects digital audio/video sources such as set-top boxes, DVD players, personal computers (PCs, laptops), video game consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, computer monitors, and digital televisions. With just one cable, HDMI supports any TV or PC video format, including high-definition video and up to 8 channels of digital audio. This powerful technology comes standard in VX2739wm. This way, you can connect your monitor to your desktop or laptop computer and work, surf the web or play games. Or you can connect it to your gaming console and enjoy the large 27” screen, 1ms response time time and integrated speakers. You can even connect it to a cable box or a satellite receiver and watch TV on your monitor! Although the monitor doesn’t have a tuner to receive the TV signals from the air, HDMI +receiver box combination gives you the same TV experience. And another great example of the countless video sources you connect to is a Blu-ray/DVD/CD player.

Diverse connectivity

The VX39 Series features three video inputs, HDMI, DVI-D and VGA. You can connect three different sources at the same time and then toggle from one to another by selecting the input source through the On-Screen-Display (OSD). You can also connect one of your computer’s USB ports to monitor’s USB uplink input which then multiplies the USB ports to four. You can even connect up to four USB devices to your monitor and save yourself from the hassle of reaching out to your computer’s USB ports. Also, you can connect your audio source to the VX2739wm and listen through the integrated speakers or you can easily hook up your headphones to the monitor for privacy.
