When Staples offered me a gift for my husband for Father’s Day, how could I refuse? Finding the perfect gift, especially for a guy, can be difficult but with so many great electronic options from Staples it was easier than I thought. My husband already has a tablet and plenty of games for his XBOX 360 so while those are great options, it was necessary to consider something a little outside the box. It didn’t take too long to decide on just the right thing, this ViewSonic 24″ LED Widescreen Monitor.
It arrived quickly and was super fast and simple to set up. All I can really say is, “That was easy!”
The ViewSonic’s new VA2448m-LED features an LED backlight 24-inch (23.6-inch viewable) thin bezel widescreen monitor with integrated speakers. Environmentally friendly mercury-free VA2448m-LED offers full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, 10,000,000: 1 MEGA dynamic contrast ratio, DVI and VGA inputs, 5ms response time, VESA mountable glossy finish design. A 3-year warranty, ENERGY STAR® 5.0 certification, the industry’s best pixel performance policy, and energy saving Eco-mode make the VA2448m-LED a great long-term investment.
We already had a monitor so why get a new one? Not only is the picture more vivid and the screen a bit larger, it gave my husband a convenience at home that he enjoys at work, a dual monitor system. Since he works in IT and is on call 24/7 every other week, it is important that he can work just as efficiently at home as he does at work.
From my husband’s point of view:
I am used to multiple monitors at work and cannot productively work with out them. With two monitors set up next to each other, I am able to have my request/email open on one monitor and my work open on the the other monitor. At home, even on a large monitor, I am constantly switching apps and changing windows sizes. Now I can be twice as productive at home. I can watch a movie on Netflix (in HD no less) and browse the internet/facebook (or actual after hours support) at the same time.
With his new monitor from Staples, my husband now has a more enjoyable desktop system and he thinks I’m awesome. I’d call that a win!
The VIEWSONIC® VA2448M-LED 1920 x 1080 24″ Widescreen LCD Monitor is available directly at Staples. com. It has a list price of $179.99 but be sure to be on the lookout for some great sales from Staples so you can snag it at an even better deal. Either way it is a great value for a solid monitor.
