Test System Setup




We appreciate the support provided by Corsair and ASUS in building our test system. Without their support, our job would be much more difficult.



On-Screen Display


The OSD makes use of four physical buttons, not including the power button, along the bottom of the display. To the right of the power button, there are two buttons: one up and one down. On the left, there are two buttons labeled 1 and 2. The arrows are used to navigate, while the 1 and 2 buttons are used to select and exit.



Power Consumption


Power consumption is measured at the wall with a blank Word document open and the monitor on as bright as it can go.




The VX2263 sips power, using just 14W at max brightness. This is a pretty good result, and is the lowest of our chart.





We use a LX1010B light meter to measure brightness in Lux. The monitor is placed in the center of the screen on a blank Word document with the monitor at full brightness.




That low power consumption, however, comes with a cost, and that cost is max brightness. We measured a max reading of just 230 Lux, making it also the dimmest monitor we've reviewed. Do not be alarmed, though, because the display is still quite bright.





We use this as a way to measure a monitor's efficiency. It is simply the monitor's brightness divided by its power draw.




As for efficiency, the display is right in the mix, coming in fifth, but only 2 points away from second.
