Viewsonic VX2778

The Viewsonic uses a fake frame-less (all frame-less monitors have perceived black depth ruining inner black bezels) matte 27" 2560x1440 LG IPS panel with a non-height adjustable stand, but it is VESA compliant.  It has Displayport, HDMI, Mini Displayport, a 3.5mm audio output, outstanding color preset accuracy and above average contrast (950:1 measured by PRAD).

Viewsonic XG2703-GS

Discontinued in 2018.

The Viewsonic XG2703-GS uses a 27" 2560x1440 resolution 8 Bit AUO AHVA panel (M270DAN02.3), a nearly grain free matte coating, has excellent color presets, a nice dark matte black bezel which increases the perceived black depth, very fast pixel response times and a 165hz refresh rate. G-Sync (compatible Nvidia GPU required) works from 30-165hz/FPS, and eliminates screen tearing and lag.  The Viewsonic XG2703-GS also has ULMB (back-light strobing, excellent 1080p scaling unlike the Asus PG279Q, and superior 60hz overdrive with less overshoot ghosting than the Acer XB271HU.  The Viewsonic XG2703 is the best all around 27" 1440p AHVA 144-165hz monitor with Nvidia G-Sync for PC and console gaming, and watching 1080p content.

Viewsonic VG2755-2K

Review by PRAD

Fully adjustable, matte 2560x1440 LG AH-IPS with Displayport, HDMI, USB-C and 3x USB 3.1.  It's fairly accurate but can't fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709) color spaces (limited to 89%) which prevents it from being competitive.
