ViewSonic's VPD150 Digital ViewPanel supports new digital standards so there's no traditional analog-to-digital signal conversion, which commonly results in a degradation of image quality. The VPD150 multimedia LCD monitor offers a 1,024 x 768 native resolution, a wide 140-degree horizontal viewing angle and a 15-inch viewable screen. PerfectPortrait software (included) allows for easy viewing when the monitor is rotated 180 degrees, making it ideal for users working on legal or word processing documents.
