The touch monitor comes with an ergonomically advanced hinge stand that offers effortless display adjustments ranging from 15° to 70°. This wide range of flexibility allows users to find the optimal positioning for their specific setup or task, whether it's note-taking, conference calls, or group presentations. The monitor's versatility ensures comfortable and convenient usage in various scenarios.

Furthermore, the monitor's design includes a magnetic strip on three sides and the back, providing a practical and convenient solution to hold the pen securely when not in use. This thoughtful addition ensures that the pen is always within easy reach, eliminating the risk of misplacing or losing it during work sessions.

Moreover, the HDMI output feature simplifies screen mirroring with projectors and additional monitors. With USB-C supporting 90W Power Delivery, you not only connect and share instantly but also ensure efficient power management for your devices.

Designed to Withstand Daily Rigors

The ViewSonic ID2456 Touch Monitor is engineered to tackle demanding workloads head-on. Its durability is evident with a 6H rating on the Moh scale of mineral hardness for the glass cover, coupled with an anti-glare coating. This robust construction allows it to endure extended daily usage without compromising its top-notch visual performance.

Comfortable for Extended Use

For those marathon work sessions, the ID2456 is designed to keep you comfortable. It features a blue light filter and Flicker-Free technology, providing a superior viewing experience. This combination ensures your eyes stay at ease, eliminating strain and fatigue, even on those extra-long workdays.


For around a month, I have been using this ViewSonic ID2456 Touch Monitor. This 24-inch Full HD (1080p) touch display is equipped with a host of impressive features, including an ergonomic stand that allows for customized display positioning. With USB Type-C support for plug-and-play convenience and HDMI ports for seamless screen-mirroring, it's packed with versatility.

You can seamlessly connect the display to an external screen or a computer, turning it into a real-time teaching tool. Alternatively, if you possess an artistic flair, this display can serve as your oversized canvas, limited only by the size of your external display.

The display itself may seem unassuming at first glance, resembling your standard 24-inch monitor. However, it truly shines when paired with the Active Pen.

The Active Pen is a standout performer, rivaling the precision of the Apple Pencil. It offers minimal lag, and notable accuracy, and supports a 50-degree tilt angle and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, making it a versatile tool for drawing or writing, akin to traditional pen and paper.

The ID2456 also boasts additional quality-of-life features, including 10-point touch and palm rejection when using the Active Pen. This ensures a seamless writing, teaching, or learning experience, with accidental touches or palm-induced errors becoming virtually non-existent.

Because this device is tailored for specific use cases, it's not for everyone. However, if you're a teacher or an artist, the ID2456 is right up your alley. ViewSonic claims that the Active Pen can last up to 100 hours on a single charge, and though I couldn't verify this exact figure, I can confirm that I only had to charge the stylus once during my testing period.

The versatile monitor delivers excellent color saturation, ensuring your content pops with vibrancy. Fine details are depicted crisply, and you won't experience any pixelation or jagged lines, even at Full HD resolution. While black levels may not be the deepest, the monitor excels in contrast, making it ideal for enjoyable viewing and tasks like Photoshop.

With a decent pixel density and bright display, images and text appear sharp and well-illuminated, enhancing your overall visual experience. Covering an impressive 120% of the sRGB color gamut, this monitor ensures your visuals are nothing short of stunning. It goes the extra mile with advanced eye-care technology, making long work or gaming sessions comfortable. Additionally, its ergonomic flexibility allows you to find the perfect viewing position.
