Tom's Guid - ViewSonic XG2700-4K Review - March 3, 2016


Quote:
Delta E color accuracy score of 1.2 (closer to 0 is better). That tops the Acer's 2.5 as well as our 4.4 average. The monitor was less dominant in terms of color representation, reproducing 93.6 percent of the rRGB color gamut, compared with the Acer's 97 percent and our 103 percent average.
ViewSonic's display registered a fairly standard 11.1 milliseconds of latency on our lag tester, just barely beating the Acer's 11.7ms and our 13.6ms average.

ViewSonic Crystal Clear AH IPS Technologies Information

Quote:
SuperClear® have improved legibility and colour differentiation of images on-screen by incorporating improved brightness and colour uniformity, adaptive peaking for sharper edges, and the elimination of pixel cross-talk.

Brightness and colour uniformity: We ensure proper luminance uniformity by calibrating each one of our screens, section by section. We do this by using preset scalar uniformity engines that multiply the original 81 screen vectors to 4096 vectors. The scalar then balances the brightness and colour uniformity of this larger number of vectors to offer superior uniformity from one part of the screen to the other.

Adaptive peaking for sharper edges and crisper images: We introduce 'adaptive peaking' to our lines of SuperClear® displays to bring greater sharpness to images on-screen. We accomplish this by using scalar presets to 'pull up' the level of white displayed on-screen to create harder edges and improved legibility. These preset levels enhance screen contrast and keep side-by-side bright and dark colours from looking grey or muddled.

Cross-talk elimination: On a pixel level, as current goes through the screen the emission of light from one pixel can jump over to another. This can influence the uniformity of pixels and may leave colours looking muddled. To eliminate cross-talk, we use de-ringing technology to reverse the tendency of greys appearing. This balances out the effect of pixel peaking, and leaves images looking more crisp and legible.

Buzzword Hype
Quote:
Great for high-speed gaming and action-packed movies, SuperClear® image enhancement technology enhances the grey-to-grey response times of wide angle viewing panels to optimise imagery in movies and fast-paced games.
Quote:
In addition to offering a wider colour gamut and enhanced grey-to-grey response times, our viewer-friendly SuperClear displays also exhibit smaller dynamic colour shifts than other displays. Combined, these specifications offer viewers greater eye comfort, so that they can watch fast-moving media without seeing blurred images that cause sore eyes.

Interested in this 4K @ 60 Hz or going with 1440 @ 144 Hz IPS. Anything more will be out of price range for me.

How are they doing 144hz and 4k? Dp 1.2 can't handle that... Pretty big typo even Newegg says 144hz 4k smile.gif lol

I think Newegg has specs listed wrong. I double checked and they listed it as 144 Hz but that would take DP 1.3 headscratch.gif


Incorrect Newegg Spec! (Click to show)

Anyway it's 60 Hz.

Supposedly this has a built-in "process reducer" that helps with lowering input lag. It also boasts black stabilisation which is supposed "to help pick out enemy players in dark areas while still maintaining colours and contrast levels elsewhere". Would like to see a TFT Central review,

So without reviews I took leap of faith and I ordered the XG2700 which should be here by Wednesday. thumb.gif

I have a good feeling this will encompass the entire monitors Adaptive sync range from 9-60 FPS. Fingers crossed, we'll see.

For those of you who are waiting on another 1440 adaptive sync hang tight. ViewSonic postponed XG 2703 by one month so they can get 165 Hz IPS working right out of the box. Releases sometime in March.

It wasn't easy to decide my next monitor as I've been waiting since the ROG 144Hz TN panel released to make a move. Just seemed like the next natural progression from 60Hz 1080 TN, 120 Hz 1080 TN, 60 Hz 1440 IPS to 60 Hz 4K IPS and with adaptive sync. In the end I really want to stick with a single strong GPU solution and I'd rather not be forced into crossfire or SLI to maintain the proper FPS to enjoy the monitor. Polaris will be in my rig next now.

On the flipside I use my monitor as much for multi media as I do gaming so I will get the most personal benefits from my monitor in 4K over 1440 @ 165 Hz compromise.

Finally my last reason for going with this monitor I decided not to be stuck in the Nvidia 'Apple esque' ecosystem but go with the accepted VESA standard of adaptive synchronization that even Intel will support which solidifies its position in the market.

First pics I post will be to check for backlight bleed, dead pixels, bad IPS glow and uniformity when it arrives.

EDITED: To add I just saw this on sale for $649.99 and Newegg refunded the difference. Premier membership helps. Great price on this monitor now.

Any update on this? Thanks

Edit: sorry didn't see your comment about Wednesday delivery. Good luck!
Was it $650 at Newegg or price matched to another site?

Yeah Wensday but I work a long day will be late. Have a kids GoPro4 to take 4K pics this time.

So I got it for $699.99 and two days later it's on sale on the egg for $649.99. I called them and they refunded the $50 back to me which really sweetened this monitor if it works out.

Great, nothing like a discount after the money is out the door thumb.gif
Really looking forward to some gaming, max settings, etc, results with your Fury, since I have a Fury too. So, I am curious how one card will handle 4k Freesync on 27 inch. I have been looking at some other brands, but there is no such thing as a perfect match, so may have to do with "optimal" which is what we all do with all of our decisions anyway; optimize the outcome. lol smile.gif

Edit: on the Gpro- I got it for my vacation travels, but the lack of zoom didn't work out too well..lol however, for hikes, solo adventures trips, recording anything closeup, its a pretty decent device.. just strap it on your head, or wrist and Gopro...lol
