Review: ViewSonic VG2440V

Published

on

ViewSonic’s new VG2440V is perfect for those working from home and for students continuing their studies through online platforms. This is because this monitor comes with a built-in Full HD web camera and a microphone. The VG2440V is a 24-inch Full HD video conferencing monitor that offers the capability of video conferencing and live-streaming out of the box.

As mentioned earlier, the monitor comes with a built-in 2MP FHD webcam that can be adjusted to better frame the user during video conference calls and create engaging content through varied camera angles. For better privacy and security, the camera also has a cover slide to cover it when not in use. The monitor offers an aspect ratio of 16:9, a response time of 5ms (GTG), and a refresh rate of 6000Hz.

The build quality of the monitor is solid, while the design is quite good, too. The monitor offers ergonomic flexibility – it can tilt up to 40 degrees, swivel up to 120 degrees, be raised up to a 130mm viewing angle, and pivot 90 degrees for portrait viewing – thus suiting your setup and workflow. You also get adjustable vertical angles of the webcam up to 5 degrees both ways. The monitor comes with dual front-facing speakers thus ensuring you can hear and be heard with absolute clarity.

The VG2440V also comes with Advance Eye-Care technology which works to eliminate eye strain and fatigue after long periods thanks to Flicker-Free technology and a Blue Light Filter. You also get SuperClear IPS panel technology that offers the same image quality, irrespective of your viewing angle. You also get vivid colours and consistent brightness throughout.

The monitor offers a standard brightness output of 250 nits and has a contrast ratio of 1000:1. ViewSonic also throws in its vDisplay Manager productivity suite, which provides effective OSD commands. You can have split-screen displays, auto-launch applications, and customise display settings to maximise multi-tasking abilities.

The monitor is also compatible for use with a client mount kit that lets you mount a mini PC behind the monitor to save up desk space. The client mount kit, which is sold separately, lets you keep your desk clean and clutter-free.

Assembling the monitor is effortless and toolless. Just screw the base to the quick release stand, snap the stand into place using the slots, and lift the fully-assembled display out of the box. In terms of connectivity, you get 1 VGA port, 1 HDMI 1.4, 1 DisplayPort, 3 USB 3.2 Type-A Down Stream (monitor to peripherals), and 1 USB 3.2 Type B Up Stream (monitor to PC). Most new monitors on the market now come with a USB Type C (Thunderbolt certified) port. However, this port is missing on the VG2440V, even though the monitor is made for a work-from-home scenario.

The image quality offered by the ViewSonic VG2440V is quite good. We used the monitor for a week during online classes and we found the overall experience to be very good. The monitor offered vibrant colours and very good brightness throughout our testing period. The built-in web camera and microphone performed really well. The webcam was crisp, while the microphone picked up voices efficiently. The built-in front-facing speakers were also loud enough for a distraction-free online learning experience.

The ViewSonic VG2440V is competitively priced at $255, translating to about AED 940. Considering the LED IPS panel, the crisp and vibrant images, the built-in webcam, and the very good microphone and speakers, the ViewSonic VG2440V comes across as a value for money display for WFH setups.

Price: $255

Summary

The build quality of the monitor is solid, while the design is quite good, too. The monitor offers ergonomic flexibility – it can tilt up to 40 degrees, swivel up to 120 degrees, be raised up to a 130mm viewing angle, and pivot 90 degrees for portrait viewing – thus suiting your setup and workflow. You also get adjustable vertical angles of the webcam up to 5 degrees both ways. The monitor comes with dual front-facing speakers thus ensuring you can hear and be heard with absolute clarity.

Huawei Intros the HUAWEI MatePad, the MateView and the Matebook Series in UAE

Published

on

Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) announced today the launch of its all-new Super Device lineup in the UAE. The devices, including the flagship productive tablet the new 12.6-inch HUAWEI MatePad Pro, and standalone monitor HUAWEI MateView, offer the seamless integration brought by the Smart Office setup.

As a part of the Super Device experience, Huawei introduced in the UAE market: the new 12.6-inch HUAWEI MatePad Pro and HUAWEI MatePad 11, along with its first standalone monitor series HUAWEI MateView and HUAWEI MateView GT. The new products will be available for pre-orders in the UAE starting July 29th prices from 3,399AED for HUAWEI MatePad Pro, from 1699AED for HUAWEI MatePad 11, and 2999AED for HUAWEI MateView. The pre-orders will come with amazing gifts with purchases such as HUAWEI Watch GT 2 and HUAWEI Freebuds 3 and more.

Technology evolves in many ways and over the years we have seen how innovative gadgets have become. From smartphones, laptops, and smartwatches, these devices are now part of one’s daily essentials. The past year has shown that work isn’t just situated in one place, and that contributing factors mean that offices should now be smarter than ever.

Having multiple devices can be overwhelming and shuffling from one device to another doesn’t always translate to a coherent practice. Huawei’s all-new Super Device experience is designed to provide a common language for different kinds of devices to connect and collaborate so it can give users a convenient, smooth, and secure multi-device experience.

The Smart Office experience brings a form of interconnectivity and distributed technology for users. This experience combines previous independent devices into one virtual Super Device where each service and function can be shifted effortlessly between devices. Through a single unified system, flexible deployment is possible, and the deep integration of hardware and software can help leverage the true power and capabilities of each device.

In a typical Smart Office scenario, Huawei has designed several devices to function and work as one Super Device as well as to easily switch between wired and wireless connections, and between work and personal mode. This includes the new HUAWEI MatePad and HUAWEI MateView series. Using a centralised control panel, you can immediately connect compatible devices wirelessly. From the tablet, wireless projection can be used so that users can see content on the monitor, and from the laptop, users can use a USB-C connection to connect to the monitor.

Using a mouse and keyboard that’s connected to the HUAWEI MateView, users can easily navigate and input content from the HUAWEI MatePad and also from the HUAWEI MateBook series. This level of convenience brings about the main advantages of the Smart Office setup, allowing users to switch between work mode and personal mode easily.

Another setup lets users easily work between the HUAWEI MatePad and the HUAWEI MateBook series. With Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration mode, users can take advantage of three modes on how to work between the two devices: Mirror, Extend and Collaborate. Mirror mode allows the laptop display to be mirrored on the tablet that can show the exact same content. With the HUAWEI M-Pencil (2nd Generation), users will be able to use the tablet screen to sign and annotate documents and even use it as a canvas to create illustrations.

With Extend Mode, the HUAWEI MatePad can act as an extended display for the HUAWEI MateBook series. The advantage of having dual displays allow users to easily browse documents side-by-side suitable when doing comparisons. Collaborate Mode will let users transfer content between devices easily. With Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration, users can directly use the laptop’s mouse to drag and drop files that include images, videos, audio files, and documents between the two devices.

The 12.6-inch HUAWEI MatePad Pro is a flagship productive tablet that brings top-of-the-line performance boosted by the Kirin 9000E Flagship Chipset. This 5nm processor is able to process massive amounts of data as well as utilise the power of real-time AI computing needed to power the Super Device setup. The tablet also brings a 12.6-inch, 16:10 ultra-wide 2K AMOLED FullView Display that has the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio at 90%.

Also available is the HUAWEI MatePad 11, the first Huawei tablet to feature a 120Hz high refresh rate display that translates to smoother viewing and more responsive touch control. The tablet is also compatible with the Huawei Super Device experience. The HUAWEI MateView brings photos and videos to life with its real colour display measuring 28.2-inches and boasting a 4K+ 3850 x 2560 pixel resolution. It also comes in a taller 3:2 aspect ratio that allows users to see more with its increased vertical height with ultra-thin bezels that allow for immersive viewing.

Huawei has also tailored the device for gamers with the launch of the HUAWEI MateView GT displaying cutting-edge technology, great reliability and outstanding quality. Introduced as a brand-new product category, the HUAWEI MateView GT features a curved ultrawide display that supports a refresh rate of 165Hz, with an innovative integrated SoundBar. With the HUAWEI MateView GT, Huawei is dedicated to offering consumers an even more powerful and efficient monitor, taking the gaming and entertainment experience to a new level.
