Clear view technology is probably some marketing word for it being IPS(AHVA) or maybe some gimmicky feature that you can find in the OSD menu? or something like that.
As for the price... well who knows what ViewSonic is thinking.... Eizo priced the FS2735 in europe at 1099 euros meanwhile the Asus pg279q is 849euros and the acer xb271hu is 799euros and the FS2735 is a Freesync monitor so no gsync module cost and feature/specs wise it's not much different from the acer and the asus beside strobing (same technology as ULMB or benq's blur reduction) at 144hz instead of being limited at 120hz and also having 2 free sync modes 1 being 30-90 hz and another 57-144hz.
I really have no idea why Eizo priced it that way considering it uses the same panel as the other ones (confirmed by TFTcentral) and there's no such thing as a "better panels with less issues deal" with AUO. And of course there's also the cheaper MG279Q which lacks strobing feature but mostly same specs/features while being a lot cheaper, but I doubt that strobing at 144hz is worth paying almost double the price lol.
Anyway what I'm saying is don't get your hopes up for the ViewSonic just because the MSRP is $1,217 (taken from viewsonic own website) chances are pretty good it's gonna be the same as the Acer XB270HU/XB271HU or the ASUS PG279Q with just a different design and it will most likely have the same lottery ratio of getting a decent one, but hey maybe I'm wrong who know's we'll see when it releases, imo it doesn't look very promising.
EDIT: I doubt it has a A-TW filter, it's a gaming monitor after all aimed at g4merz, would be nice if it had that though.Edited by LunaTiC123 - 2/7/16 at 1:46pm
