The Viewsonic XG2401 has a 48-144hz AMD Free-Sync range, a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, and great preset color accuracy once switched from the default Standard mode to the User mode.

The Viewsonic XG2402 has a non-linear gamma curve and a perceived black depth decreasing black bezel vs the predecessor, the XG2401's high quality matte grey bezel. 


Viewsonic VX2458-mhd

Review by PRAD

The Viewsonic uses a very accurate matte 144hz 1080p AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range) with Displayport (48-144hz Free-Sync range), 2x HDMI (48-120hz Free-Sync range) and 3.5mm Audio Out.  Set the Response Time to Ultra Fast to speed up the pixel response times without obvious overshoot ghosting.  The VX2458-mhd's Ultra Fast Response Time setting offers superior overdrive to the XG240R PRAD tested: VX2458-mhd versus XG240R's best overdrive setting which is the Faster setting.

Review by Trusted Reviews

Fully adjust-able matte 144hz 1920x1080 AUO TN panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), Displayport, 2x HDMI (48-120hz Free-Sync), 2x USB 3.0, and 3.5mm Audio Out. 

The XG240R has accurate 60hz color presets, but the XG240R PC Monitors tested suffered from a significant gamma drop (60hz 2.3 to 1.9 at 144hz), and loss of color and shade accuracy and vibrancy when set to 144hz.  Setting the Gamma to 2.6, and setting the Gaming Settings to Custom 1 and 2 (best) improve the 144hz gamma.  The XG240R can't fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces, and has slightly worse overdrive than the cheaper VX2458-mhd.  The VX2458-mhd's Ultra Fast Response Time setting offers superior overdrive to the XG240R PRAD tested: VX2458-mhd versus XG240R's best overdrive setting which is the Faster setting.
