Also, while it does indeed require a rather powerful graphics solution, keep in mind that the pixel density is rather high, particularly on 1440p displays, enough that I find that anything more than maybe 2x AA is unnecessary! In fact, I find it hard to perceive any difference between 2xAA and 16xAA on a 1440p display from more than about 6" away from the screen. This is a great thing, as it allows your GPU('s) to focus on making everything else look that much prettier! thumb.gif

Sorry, but I just can't take this seriously... I know I, for one, don't have $20,000 to drop on a 4Kx2K television, nor do I have any native 4K video... Instead, I have a beautiful 55" LG LED-LCD "Smart"-TV with local dimming that is hooked up to my HD-DVR, Blu-Ray Player, 360, PS3, all courtesy of an 11.4ch Receiver powering 11 speakers and 2 dual-subs with a trio of McIntosh amplifiers ("interpolating" the Front-High and Front-Wide channels)...

Oh, but crap, it's only 1080p... MY GOD, HOW have I LIVED with myself?!?!
I guess I should just grab one of my AR's and go dump a few mags into the setup because I'm doing it completely wrong, huh?

Oh well, you learn from your mistakes... Time to sell a kidney so I can have a "proper" television, it's not like it matters that NO content is available...
thanks for the insight. That's why I want a 1440p panel. Still looking at which one to buy though.

Input lag measurement would be welcome. Just to get an idea if Prad is right or other tests with kinda contradicting opinions.
It's really weird btw that input lag measurements differ so much between different tests. Most of the time it's not even clear if the lag was measured with native resolution or not which at least could make a difference.

As a side note: the VP2770 was just tested in the latest issue of the German mag "c't" - next to the Dell U2713HM, the Asus PB278Q, the Eizo EV2736WFS and more or less all the other "usual suspects" (Samsung, LG, HP). While the test is not really "in depth" enough to be convincing (e.g. they claim that only the Samsung S27B970D had a PLS panel while all the others had IPS panels and even claim implicitly that the Dell had an adjustable overdrive.), reading this test the Viewsonic doesn't really look like the best allrounder at all. Indeed it looks more like the 2nd last or 3rd from last of the 7 tested monitors.
For gaming they kinda suggest Dell or Eizo - which is a little surprising as the Eizo should have a pretty high input lag according to Prad.

Great to see this monitor finally catching on. Being one of the early adopters I still love this monitor considering a second.

Argh, just found 2 bright spots on my monitor. Going to risk it and send it back. Hopefully I'll get a good one.

That sucks! The replacement one had that. I wonder how it happens. It almost looked like there wasn't AG there or something.

I purchased my panel from Amazon Canada, no bright spots.

For some reason, 60 Hz doesn't work, only 59 Hz can be set. Anyone else experiencing this?

59.94 is the same as 60, there's no actual difference. Sometimes it doesn't round depending on the graphics driver/cable.

So I just checked the specs on this monitor and ViewSonic has a ZERO pixel tolerance. No dead pixel, no stuck pixels, no hot pixels, nothing is allowed. I'm gonna go ahead with the exchange, I practically can't get a worse display.
