Design and features
The ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED takes a lot of what has worked in recent LED monitor designs without getting too ambitious.
Its glossy black bezel is adorned with a transparent "lip" on the bottom. In the middle of the lip is a 1-inch-wide power button that glows blue when powered on. The bezel measures a fairly short 0.8 inch on the sides and the distance from the bottom of the lip to the desktop is 3.2 inches at its longest.
