Product Description

If you’re looking for some serious business monitors, then get a monitor that’s made for it. VS series monitors are built from the ground up to be used in the office environment with embedded power adapters into the design while still remaining slim and stylish. For added convenience, these monitors are VESA compatible, so you can neatly place it on a wall. VS monitors deliver Full HD quality visuals and are LED backlit delivering brighter displays than non-LED backlit monitors. With an ultra-fast 5ms response time, enjoy smooth motion playback for videos and movies. The first monitors to be featured in the renowned Corporate Stable Model (CSM) program, VS monitors are guaranteed in stable supply for a minimum of one year so you can order the same model without worry of it being discontinued and, with the included advanced swap replacement service, saving you time should the unit require servicing. These monitors are EPEAT Gold and ENERGY STAR certified to reduce environmental impact and save on energy costs.

This monitor is a true breakthrough among larger size LCD monitors in terms of low power consumption. In Inveneo’s tests with the “Eco” setting turned on, the 20“ VS208 used virtually the same power as a low-power consuming 15” unit. Since most monitor power goes into lighting the display, and therefore increases with area (not the diagonal measurement), this is an exceptional achievement. Also remarkable, since LCD panels are inherently temperature sensitive, the VS208 worked well at 45°C in Inveneo’s Hotbox tests.

With the “Eco” setting, the monitor is bright enough for virtually any indoor environment. However, when used near a very bright window, its settings might need tweaking to satisfy some user’s preference for higher display brightness.

Our recommendation is especially based on the following criteria:

Value Value
The VS208N-P is available for $110-120, a great price when compared to other 20” displays.
Value Performance
Excellent contrast, true colors. The monitor performs well when compared to standard monitors; excellent when compared to low-power monitors.
Value Power
The VS208N-P is very power efficient, with eco-mode dropping power usage down to just 8 watts. The unit is also EPEAT gold certified.
