Good contrast and natural colours are let down by problems scaling over HDMI connections and syncing over VGA connections, but it's great value

LED-backlit displays are becoming the norm these days, and Viewsonic's thin VX2453mh-LED is a good example. It's only 36mm thick, which means there's no room for an integrated power supply, but it also has two HDMI ports as well as an analogue VGA port. There's also no room for a set of internal speakers, but instead you get an audio output jack that can be used with headphones.

Manufacturers' claims of "mega" contrast ratios (in this case, an implausibly round figure of 30,000,000:1) should be taken with a truckload of salt. Contrast is certainly good, and the VX2453mh-LED has an even backlight that we found brighter than most LED models we've seen. We noticed a bit of backlight bleed-through at the edges of the screen, though.

On the whole, image quality is good. We found colours natural and punchy despite the matt finish on the screen. There's a User colour setting as well as five presets, but we set the colour temperature to 6500K, as the sRGB setting made it too dark and disabled the Brightness and Contrast controls. Apart from these, there aren't any other image quality controls, but apart from small tweaks dependent on your room's lighting, you shouldn't need more.
