The VX1962 is a 19-inch display, but unlike other 19-inch displays it has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. The display has one of the coolest designs that I have seen. ViewSonic uses a glossy finish on the entire display to bring a lot of attention to it. It is also extremely thin, one of the thinnest displays we have taken a look at. At the center of the display there is a ViewSonic logo and the power button. Below the power button on the underside of the display are 4 buttons: menu, input select, down, and up. I like that ViewSonic put them on the bottom of the display keeping the front of the display nice and clean.
ViewSonic uses a much different stand than what we are used to seeing. It is sort of an oval shape with a very thin arm. It also has the glossy look like the rest of the display. The stand does not move so you cannot swivel the display to the left or right, but you are able to adjust it forward and back.
Moving around to the back of the display, it too has the glossy finish as the front does. There is a ViewSonic logo on the back and the VESA wall mount holes. The arm of the stand is very small but does offer a cable management system.
As far as connections go you have VGA and DVI as well as an audio input for the speakers, which are located on the bottom of the display. There is also a Kensington lock port built into the back of the display.
