The ViewSonic VA1903a is a 19"(18.5" viewable) LED monitor which is the ideal choice for corporate, educational or home office use. In addition to a 16:9 widescreen and energy saving Eco mode, it is also equipped with ViewSonic’s exclusive ViewMode, providing intuitive presets that deliver optimized screen performance in different applications. Besides, Flicker-Free technology and a Blue Light Filter help to eliminate eye strain from extended viewing periods for improved productivity. Lastly a VESA-compatible mount adapt easily to multi-monitor or wall-mount set ups.
Equipped with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1366x768 native resolution, this monitor is designed for multitasking and improving productivity in the workplace or at home.
ViewSonic’s unique ViewMode feature offers "Game," "Movie," "Web," "Text," and "Mono" presets. These presets enhance gamma curve, color temperature, contrast, and brightness to deliver an optimized viewing experience for different screen applications.
ViewSonic Advanced Contrast Ratio detects the brightness of an image, and automatically adjusts the backlight to maximize the monitor’s color range and contrast. ViewSonic Advanced Contrast Ratio technology enables the accurate reproduction of images, producing vibrant and rich visual effects.
ViewSonic flicker-free displays deliver on the promise of more comfortable viewing. ViewSonic flicker-free technology nearly eliminates screen flickering at all brightness levels by providing a constant LED light source. This lets you work at your computer, play games, or watch movies longer – without eye fatigue. Care for your eyes with ViewSonic flicker-free technology!
Prolonged exposure to certain levels of blue light can cause eye discomfort. ViewSonic displays feature a Blue Light Filter setting that allows users to adjust the amount of blue light emitted from the screen, enabling longer viewing times and increased eye comfort for work and multimedia applications. It offers 100 levels of blue light filtering to relax users' eyes and adapt to all your daily digital activities.
ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode energy-saving feature is built into all ViewSonic LED monitors. Eco-mode adjusts brightness and improves visibility, while reducing eye fatigue and prolonging the monitor's lamp life. With Eco-mode, the lifespan of the LED backlighting is also greatly increased.
Mount the monitor as you see fit using its convenient 75 x 75mm VESA-mountable design.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
