Viewsonic VX2778

Review by PRAD

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 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.

Viewsonic VA2719-2K-SMH

Review by Les Numeriques

Matte 2560x1440 LG AH-IPS panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI 1.4 and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The ViewSonic is fairly accurate out of the box as well as nearly top tier overdrive performance (fast pixel response times without overshoot ghosting) for a 60hz non-TN panel with the overdrive (Response Time setting in the menu) is st to the Advanced mode.  Unfortunately it suffers from a 27.8ms delay versus 10ms typically measured by the Leo Bodnar device when measuring display delay in the middle of the screen.  Subtract 7-8ms to compare middle screen Leo Bodnar measurements to SMT Tool measurements.

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.
