ViewSonic VP2770 Review+Club: 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy PLS

post #1 of 514
Thread Starter 


This display will likely go under the radar for most simply because it is a ViewSonic.

IMO it is the best choice out of the Dell U2713HM (bleeding, anti-glare cross hatching, burn-in, higher input lag), Asus PB278Q (bleeding, PWM flicker, higher input lag) and Samsung S27A850D (bleeding, high default gamma, higher input lag) and is worth the extra money.

It has a 7ms signal delay according to PRAD (they have the only accurate measurement at this time)! This puts it ahead of the Eizo CG275W (9ms, PRAD), CrossOver 2720MDP and Samusng S27A850D (tied 13.6ms, PRAD) vs. Dell U2713HM (15.5ms, PRAD) vs Asus PB278Q (17.8ms, PRAD) Usually multi-input 2560x1440 displays have at least 1 frame of input lag (17ms) PRAD's review is available in German here.


+No PWM dimming
+Excellent Factory Calibrated Colours
+Semi-Glossy Coating
+Fast overshoot free response times when using the Advanced Setting
+Very low input lag
+Fast Overshoot Free Pixel Response Times

My Samsung 305T+ is on its way out and Samsung cannot fix them. To cut a long story short if I cant get it fixed I have been flirting with buying this Viewsonic. I am glad you have given this monitor some attention as its slipped under the radar a among the community.

Do you have any plans to get one of these for testing?

I received mine last week to replace my Samsung 305T+ which is on its way out. Samsung dragging their heals on a refund so threw the Viewsonic on my credit card.

The image quality is just excellent, the default mode pleases my eyes the most, it does come with a pre-calibrated sRGB mode but I find it dulls the image a little. The default settings produce a big bright beautiful picture. Seriously, i think it produces the best image quality on any monitor I have seen, a massive step ahead of my 305T+. The build quality is very good, solid plastic casing that does not creak, very little back light bleed although there is a stuck grey pixel in the bottom left corner of the screen.

The area that I was most disappointing with is gaming. While pixel response time is very good for this type of panel; I don't believe PRAD's 7ms input lag at all, it only just feels slightly snappier than that 305T which was a slug. I do game on a 120Hz TN with very little input lag, so I notice it. To be fair, it would not really be an issue for most of the games I play, but I play CS:GO and the Viewsonic does not feel good enough for it. It seems to show up the response more than any other game I tested.

I think serious FPS gamers should look at the ASUS PB278Q instead. If your into RPGS, RTS, TBS etc your in for a treat with the Viewsonic.

how are the colors compare to the Samsung PLS?

And why has Prad.de only given it a rating of good?
post #5 of 514
Not tested the Samsung display but I imagine once the Samsung has been calibrated it will return very similar results.

Movies and still images are great, but its not a good all rounder when gaming is concerned IMO. Its also more expensive than the PB278Q although that thing has some quality control issues with the amount of complaints in regards to panel quality.

I have not read the Prad.de review in depth so I don't know why they have only awarded it as good.

You can see from TFTcentral's review that they measured input lag at 26ms, which is unacceptable for fast paced games IMO

TFTcentral measurements are wrong I believe.

Interested to see why prad.de gave it a rating of good when it has all those features that are stronger then monitors that are rated as great.
