Introduction

LED backlit LCD's are something that we are just starting to see come into the consumer market. A lot of new notebook LCD's are LED backlit, but you really do not see that many desktop LCD's that are LED backlit. Mainly because producing a LED backlit LCD is 2-2x as expensive as producing the normal CCFL backlit LCD's. Today we will be looking at the VLED221wm 22-inch display from ViewSonic, which is the world's first sub $1000 LED backlit LCD, which will allow for most people to get their hands on it. It features an impressive 12000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and ability to represent 118% of the NTSC color gamut, which will provide great color reproduction. Let's see what the VLED221wm is all about.

The box opens up and we find the LCD inside without the stand installed. It is nicely protected with Styrofoam and plastic. When you get the LCD out of the packaging the entire bezel is covered in plastic to protect it from scratches. Also included with the LCD is a VGA cable, DVI cable, power cable, audio cable and installation guide and software CD.
