Viewsonic gots some inexpensive TVs for you

About half of all our CrunchDeals are Viewsonic monitors, since they seem to be eternally on sale for crazy prices. In fact, look, there’s a 24″ for $164! But if you’re in the market for a real TV, Viewsonic has you covered too. So covered, in fact, that they released six TVs today just to make sure you had a selection to choose from.

You’ve got six models; I’ll give you the quick rundown:

VT2042: $299, 20″, 1600×900, 10:000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
VT2342: $349, 23″, 1080p, rest same as above
VT2645: $449, 26″, 1366×768… why would you do that?
VT3245: $649, 32″, 1080p, 4000:1 static contrast ratio
VT3745: $799, 37″, rest same as above
VT4280: $999, 42″, 1080p, 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio

They all have a 5ms response time, which is solid. They also feature SRS TrueSurround XT technology, which is a fancy way of saying they have an extra-nice sound bar. Even the nicest sound bar in the world would be beaten by the cheapest set of 5.1 speakers out there, so do yourself a favor and pick some up.

I’d say the best deal of these is the 32″ at $649. Unfortunately, it does have the lower contrast ratio. If you’re really wanting a new TV but don’t want to spend more than that, I’d suggest getting one that doesn’t have a sound bar, and springing for some speakers with the money you save, if possible.
