ViewSonic's 19-inch VG920 anti-glare LCD monitor sports 1280x1024-pixel resolution for vibrant colors, sharp text and clear pictures. It also features 270-nit brightness and 550:1 contrast ratio, and the 8 ms video response time is designed to deliver superior clarity and focus when viewing moving images. It includes a swivel base, but the VG920 is also VESA 100 mm wall-mount compliant for ease in setup and presentation. It also comes with a Kensington security port. All these features are combined with 3-watt, bezel-integrated speakers.
To and Fro
Belkin's Flip lets users share one monitor, keyboard and mouse -- and even one set of speakers -- between two computers, allowing professionals to easily plug their work laptop into their home computer setup. By pressing a small remote, users can switch from one computer to the other. The remote stays on the desk, and the base and cables stay hidden. The unit features a two-color LED that indicates which computer Flip is accessing. It also supports high video resolutions of up to 2048x1536 pixels and monitors with VGA connections.
