When it comes to monitors or projectors, Viewsonic is not a new name in the Indian market. We just reviewed the Viewsonic TD 1630-3 Touch LED monitor and learned some interesting stuff. Describe them. Continue reading our review.
Given that this LED panel features a touchscreen, it is considerably different from what Viewsonic has previously produced. However, let’s briefly discuss its appearance before we discuss its performance. It appears to be a straightforward monitor when it is first unwrapped, but then you realise it lacks a base stand. Instead, this 15.6-inch monitor includes a metal support that can rotate out and back to almost 90 degrees and rest flat, making it suitable for usage as a tablet.
The touchscreen, together with additional buttons and Viewsonic logo, make up the majority of the Viewsonic TD 1630-3 Touch LED monitor’s front panel. The monitor is portable and can be quickly set up on any size desk. Power, USB, VGA, HDMI, and audio in connectors are located downward on the back of the device. Speaking about audio, this monitor has two 1W upward firing speakers. The monitor looks normal because it is covered in grey and black plastic until you discover how it operates.
Here’s where the fun really starts. When it comes to touch functionality, the Viewsonic TD 1630-3 Touch LED monitor excels. It was easy to set up via USB and we utilised it with HDMI. The touch portion of it is essentially enabled by the USB, and the tap to performance response time is not too horrible. When we discovered that this monitor only supports HD (720p) graphics and does not support FHD graphics, we conducted the customary testing.
Even so, it is still a pleasure to work with. Although the games were not performing at their best, the monitor was not designed to do that. It is designed for usage in the workplace. And that it does very well. The 7H hardness of the screen prevents it from being scratched, but frequent touches and taps do make it a fingerprint magnet, and we personally prefer our monitors to be clear of smudges.
The monitor’s viewing angles are not very good because they only support angles up to 90 degrees. Since 1W does not adequately represent the multimedia experience, neither is the sound. The colours, however, are excellent; they are vivid and clear. Black people are not all bad. Even so, we’ve seen better from some other Viewsonic monitors that are less priced.
Verdict and Final Words
Linux OS and Windows 7 and later are both compatible with the Viewsonic TD 1630-3 Touch LED monitor. The touch experience on a PC is thus suitable for routine business work. But in an office setting, one wouldn’t want to utilise it constantly. Although it occasionally felt like a gimmick, some experts would prefer a touch-screen monitor. Like? It will be a fantastic alternative to have there when it comes to POS systems or stores where one wants to demo products. However, Rs 20,000 is a bit costly for a touch display that does not offer full HD graphics.
