NEC did not disclose margins, but it does offer spiffs, rebates and other opportunities for partners to earn profits. Partners also can garner revenue from service opportunities, along with extended warranties and contracts.


With its widescreen aspect ratio, ViewSonic's VP2330wb caters more toward multimedia authoring and entertainment applications than day-to-day business applications. However, its widescreen display does allow the viewing of two standard pages side by side, which adds convenience to business applications such as spreadsheets.

Also an LCD, the VP2330wb is a 23-inch widescreen unit with a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,200; this is slightly more in the vertical dimension than HDTV's native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, and it produces an aspect ratio of approximately 16:10 instead of 16:9, but HDTV images nonetheless look fantastically sharp when viewed on any display with this type of resolution. The VP2330wb costs $1,299.

To help display video in a fluid manner, ViewSonic's VP2330wb has an 8-millisecond gray-to-gray video response time, which equates to a 16 millisecond response time when going from black to white to black. The display generates 250 nits of brightness with an 800:1 contrast ratio. An integrated high-speed USB 2.0 hub makes connecting peripherals a breeze and eliminates connectivity issues on the desktop.

As with the NEC, the VP2330wb also has an ergonomic base with height, tilt, swivel and pivot functions. The pivot function works automatically and doesn't require any third-party software. The display measures 21.3 inches wide by 21.2 inches high by 11.6 inches deep and it weighs about 17 pounds.
