ViewSonic VP2770 Review+Club: 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy PLS - Page 27

post #261 of 514

Just got mine in while I was at work. 

 

I'm actually quite impressed with this panel. Gave it the "Starcraft II" test and it passed on Ultra Fast with flying colours. The colours are a bit cooler than the PB278Q, but I can probably calibrate it to be warmer if I really wanted too. Also, minimal backlight bleed. Practically none. 

 

The stand is, however, very large and sits the panel too high, as I feared, so I'm going to be ordering an Ergotron MX arm mount. 

 

The only disappointment was that I have 2 dead pixels in the very bottom right immediately above the start bar. I don't know if I'll send it back for this...I'm leaning towards "not worth it".

 

Edit: Never mind, looks like this thing is gonna have to go back. There are half a dozen dead pixels and a pixel stuck on red in the centre right of the panel. Very disappointed.

ViewSonic has a zero dead pixel warranty on this monitor so if you have even a single dead pixel, you should just send it back.

I bought it through Amazon. They're shipping me another one free of charge. They only had 2 in stock though, so hopefully both these 2 aren't from a bad batch.

I received today my new monitor. Bought from Amazon.de for 669 Euro [624 plus shipping cost). My previous display was a decent S-PVA monitor -Samsung 245T bought in 2010 for 782 Euro also from Germany. (Germany is, probably, the cheapest market in Europe for LCD: living in Greece it is cheaper for me to order a monitor from Germany even if I have to pay 30 or 40 euro transport cost than to buy one from a local store). I was very skeptical about this buy because quality control is something missing from modern lcd industry, especially as it concerns panels with IPS or PLS technology. Having a good experience with Samsung panels and hoping that the increased resolution in combination with the increased size will reward me, I order the Viewsonic. I was, also, aware (after reading owners posts) that other 27 in. 1440 res. monitors like Asus PB278Q, Iiyama XB2776QS, or Dell U2713HM had greater quality issues in comparison with VP2770.
My first impression [with the aid of passmark monitor test] is positive: no dead or stuck pixels and minimum bleeding [the uniformity of the panel is in general very good -not ideal- but not worse than my previous S-PVA panel. Bleeding is minimal, and limited in the top right corner.] Lacking calibrator I copy TFT central profile (USER COLOR, R:98, G:100, B.90, contrast 70, Br. 20, [sharpness 25]). Color seems to me more vivid and white more “clean” than my SM245T. I must confess that in VP-2770 even 20 brightness is too much for my eyes.
It is true that the stand is big (in my opinion is indifferent but not ugly) and the rotation (not the tilt) is a bit stiff. But my desk is also quite large and I am not complaining.
Two interesting aspects of modern led monitors like this. 1) the obvious one: no heat from the screen as in SM245T (economy wise) 2) It is silent, there is not any noise like my SM245T.

This is my first post in OC. I want to say thanks to this community for helping people make better choices in expensive products like lcd screens.

Wish I could have kept the ViewSonic. Now I have a 96hz Qnix which actually had better out of the box colors vs. all the 2560x1440 monitors I've tested, but it has more ghosting than my CrossOver which is slower than the ViewSonic.

6 weeks ago a Samsung rep said they would replace my frame dropping 850D, 4 weeks ago I called again and was told it would take another two weeks. Called today and no one knew what was going on.

Hoping they send me a S27B971D which is their newest matte model and that it is as good or better than the ViewSonic. The 971D is really expensive in Europe (980 Euros), so, I expect it to be 1000$ in North America like the 970D.

Just got my new Viewsonic in that Amazon replaced lickity split. It still has 1 dead pixel right above the bezel, and the backlight bleed is quite a bit worse than the old one, but not horrible. Not impressed at all with the quality control on this brand or model.

What do you guys think of this bleed? Decent, or return? The VP is the one of the left.

Only the first image is somewhat realistic, but it looks fine. If your camera has manual settings try using these:

aperture 2.8
shutter 1 second
iso 50

I used the above settings for mine @140cdm/2. This image is very realistic

Keep it you are over thinking it to much.

Thanks for quick input guys. I did also come to the conclusion that it's backlight wasn't that bad, however it does have a dead pixel, so I put in a return to Amazon. I'm waiting to see if the customer rep sends me an email saying they're sending one in advance of receiving this unit. If so, I'll check the new one out, and see if I can't send them back whichever one is worse. 

 

I know I'll never notice the dead pixel, but knowing I paid $800 for a panel that isn't perfect is giving me massive buyers remorse. I really need a pixel perfect panel.
