PerfectSuite is quite a useful application that will help guide novices though monitor setup and balancing the brightness and contrast for the best possible image. Unfortunately, even after following the steps in PerfectSuite the VP930 couldn’t make it through the DisplayMate obstacle course unscathed. One feature that I really liked in PerfectSuite is the ability to set auto-pivot. This means that as soon as you rotate the screen into portrait mode, your desktop will reconfigure automatically – very cool.


A somewhat stranger feature in PerfectSuite is the “Theft Deterrent” option. This allows you to password protect your screen, so that if someone steals it they won’t be able to use it on another PC. I’m not quite sure how this will deter any thieves because they won’t know about it – in fact the first time they will realise that the screen is password protected is after they’ve stolen it and plugged it in somewhere else. Something tells me that the thought of a thief having a useless screen will be little consolation to me while I have nothing to work on. Perhaps it should be called a thief annoyance feature, rather than theft deterrent.


With a price of £377.86, the VP930 is more expensive than the outgoing VP191s that it replaces, while not exhibiting the same level of image quality. There’s no doubt that the VP930 retains the design, features and build quality of the previous VP series screens, but it’s just a shame that it stumbled in the DisplayMate tests.


”’Verdict”’


The VP930 is a beautifully designed 19in monitor with more features than you could shake a stick at. The price is high, but you’ll soon forgive that when you see the connection and adjustment options. Unfortunately the image quality is just not up to the high level that ViewSonic set with previous VP displays.
