ViewSonic XG2703-GS

Matte 2560x1440 144hz AHVA panel with Nvidia G-Sync and back-light strobing discontinued in 2018.

ViewSonic XG3240C

Matte curved 144hz 2560x1440 wide gamut VA panel with AMD Free-Sync and >89% HDR color space coverage and accurate color presets, but no sRGB or REC 709 mode to prevent vast over-saturation of non-HDR content.

Quote from: Trusted Reviews
when it comes to the oversaturated colours, this is largely quite subtle but every now and then colours look just a bit brighter than they really should. In particular, there can be a red blotchiness to caucasian skin that doesn’t look natural and green colour such as foliage in bright sunshine can look a little too vibrant. To be clear, this by no means ruins the overall image quality of the display but for sticklers for colour accuracy, it does knock this display down a peg or two, and means it’s not really suitable for content creation.

ViewSonic XG3240C

Review by =DEAD=

Matte curved 144hz 2560x1440 wide gamut VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), 2x Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The wide gamut panel is quite accurate gamma and RGB level preset wise, but does not have a properly functioning sRGB mode resulting in the over-saturation of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 and sRB) color by 25-30% and can only cover 86% of the HDR (DCI-P3) color space, as well as fails to meet any of the criteria required to achieve the HDR standard.  It suffers from a bit of banding when displaying the Powered By Dawn Engine image.  The Response Time settings do not work and it has slower pixel response times than many competitors, but does not suffer from overshoot ghosting.

Matte, fully adjust-able, 165hz, HDR/wide gamut, 2560x1440 resolution IPS* panel with G-Sync and 120hz ULMB (back-light strobing) over Displayport.  The ViewSonic XG270QG has Displayport, HDMI 1.4, 3x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The XG270QG is very accurate aside from a slight warm preset green tint, and can fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces, but has average contrast (850:1) and over-saturates the color of non DCI-P3 content (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) since it uses a wide gamut and HDR capable panel without a properly functioning sRGB emulation mode.  The ViewSonic XG270QG has negligible input lag and fast pixel response times for a non-TN panel at 144-165hz with the response time is set to the Standard (no overshoot; 60hz measurements by PRAD) and Advanced (faster but with minor overshoot; 165hz measurements by PRAD) settings.  The XG270QG does not support YCbCr 4:2:2 and YCbCr 4:4:4 signals properly when connected via HDMI; read the Unterstützte Farbmodelle und Signallevel (Supported colour models and signal level) section at the bottom of page 8 in PRAD's review for more information.

ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD

Review by Rtings

Matte, 144hz, 2560x1440, IPS panel with 20-144hz AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Pixio PX7 Prime and ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD have negligible input lag, superior gamma tracking and sRGB (99.5% measured by Rtings) color space coverage than the LG 27GL83A-B which has faster pixel response times (less ghosting) and less color bleed (in gradient tests) than both the Pixio and ViewSonic.
