Viewing Angle: About average for LCD monitors, with reasonably good off-axis side viewing, but typically poor vertical axis performance. The supplied stand does have a tilt function however, allowing direct-on viewing for most users.
Audio: Do eschew the built-in audio for an external audio system such as a desktop PC audio setup, especially since there are no direct volume up/down buttons – you have to go through the menu system to adjust that, which is a needless chore.
From a video quality standpoint (subjectively and objectively), the Westinghouse L2610NW is a top performer, with gray scale and colorimetry measurements that put it in best-of-class status. From a user standpoint, the tightly clustered and barely labeled array of control buttons on the monitor’s side panel put the Westinghouse in the bottom of the barrel—frustrating to be sure, and making the L2610NW hard to recommend, compared to some other monitors out there.
