VX912 Question, I'm considering getting one of these but I would like to know if it is possible to fit a wall mount to it. Looking at ** back pic I can see four dimples in a square is the where the screws go to meet the VESA Standard 75mm. Sorry pic not v clear enough to see.

Can anyone let me know if it can be fitted to a VESA Standard 75mm mount, thanks!

Thanks for the comments Martin and welcome to the forums. :)

I'll add a tiny update to my original post and I'll drop my rating to 9/10.

Heartless_King - yep, if you remove the rubber dimple things, screw holes are revealed. :)

Remember you have to get the viewing angle right. I have mine on a shelf on my pc desk,, and I need to put something under the stand at the back to tilt it forward to get the viewing angle right, cos you cant tilt it past 90degrees forward, or can you???????

I'm considering a desk mount so that I can easily position and switch the TFT for viewing from the desk to the bed. I like the spec of this one but my god is it expensive! :eek: :(

I just bought VX912. This is better i could imagine. No dead or lazy pixels.

Someone said that there is little darker area at the left of the screen: I can't see that. I tried to look it with white background. Maybe i'm blind, but I really can not see that.

Maybe I remember wrong that someone could not do this: but I can switch between analog and digital input.. So I can have two different computers connected to this LCD. I just press button [2] and 2seconds and there is other picture on the screen..

BUT only bad this I find in this is: When using 70Hz display mode or higher, I see little, almost transparent lines. First i could not notice this but now I have had this few weeks and i see that now. But I can only see those line from 50cm or closer. This is hard to describe in english because i'm from finland. :) but this line-thing is not something to worry about.

I give this LCD-monitor 9,5 points out of 10.

does seem a bit bright and i dont like reading on a white background not sure if my settings need changeing, if they do what do u guys have your colour settings etc on???????????????????????????

i get ghosting sometimes

thing is i play pes4 and its a fuzzy pitch

play shrek 2 and its good just a little ghosting in the games build up


GOOD MONITER AT A GOOD PRICE

just need to sort pes4 its either a cpu problem or psu not sure what tho as everythink else is ok apart from a unstable cpu speed, but it only goes unstable for a few secs then back to normal................

If you're in the market for a 19 inch TFT then this is it.
A definite 10/10 from me. :D

UPDATE
I'm changing the rating to 9/10. I'm not sure why this is but video in general looks more pixelated. When watching DVDs, this isn't noticeable as long as you are about 50cm away from the screen but the pixelation is more noticeable on video that is of less quality FAQ Another problem that is common to all TFTs it seems, whether it be in games or movies, is dark areas are darker than they would be on a CRT.

ok I found out the darkers are more dark than on a CRT as well , the way I got around this was I donwloaded powerstrip and this has a setting to make it brighter in games which works well for me.

The unstable CPU fan speed question is off topic, but don't worry about it at all

This is just a small error in the reading of the speed, so it displays the maximum and minimum fan speeds it can read - ignore it!

Hi there

Yes the Viewsonic is a favourite at OcUK. It may not have the best specification but this is definetely the most stylish and best looking panel to have on a desk. The specifications are still excellent and in playing games and DVD's they look just as good on this panel as they do on the higher specification ones. No doubt the reason Viewsonic have kept the VX715 X and VX912B X current models as they are so good.

Also check out our This Week Only offers as the Viewsonic X Series panels are on there. :)
