ViewSonic Corporation introduced two new LCD displays, the VA720 and VA520, that promise high performance with a sleek new design to Internet, gaming and home office computing enthusiasts.
The 17-inch VA720 offers a contemporary, ultra-thin monitor design. It features 1280x1024 native resolution, 260 nits of brightness and a high contrast ratio of 450:1 that should deliver crisp images with razor-thin edges. The wide 140-degree horizontal and 135-degree vertical viewing angle of the VA720 should provide a greater range of viewing for competitive gaming. At just 13.6 pounds and with a depth of 2.7 inches, the VA720 may also save consumers space.
Availability and Pricing
The VA720 and VA520 are currently available with a $100 rebate at Best Buy, CompUSA and Office Depot, as well as through ViewSonic distributors and mail order catalogs with estimated street prices, after rebate, of $699 and $429 respectively.
Backed by a three-year warranty on parts and labor, the VA720 and VA520 are eligible for ViewSonic's optional Express Exchange service, which guarantees a replacement monitor within 48 hours where service is available. In addition, ViewSonic offers toll-free technical support seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
