ViewSonic is definitely a name that comes to mind when thinking of LCD monitors. They definitely know what they are doing when it comes to making a nice display. We recently checked out the VX2255wmb and today we will be looking at the VA1930WM. It is a 19-inch display that features a 5ms response time, 1440X900 resolution, and a swivel stand. Geeks.com was nice enough to send us this display out to review, so let's check it out!

The display came from Geeks.com in a plain brown box. Opening the box up the display inside is nicely protected by Styrofoam and plastic. This should provide sufficient protection for the LCD.
One thing that I did notice was that there was no plastic film on the LCD itself to protect the screen. Because of this the screen was dirty when we received the display. It was easily cleaned and we inspected the display and found no scratches or dead pixels. Getting everything out of the package we have the LCD display, VGA cable, DVI cable, power cable, and the software CD.
