I love that image!
I have actually been looking at the Viewsonic VP2770 myself, as I am looking for a 1440p display but have reservations about both the Korean IPS displays and spending the money required for something like a Samsung S27B970D PLS Display...
The reasons being:
- I hate noticeable AG-coating, and once I see it I can't un-see it
- I love natural light, thus my home has tons of very big windows (even my computer area has 4 windows including 2x 8'x3.5' and a 3'x7'), thus a "PURE GLOSSY" display would eventually get on my nerves
- IPS is something that would benefit me greatly in terms of ergonomics (I hate having to constantly adjust my monitor, as I am a very fidgety person lol)
- Color Accuracy is important as I do photo and video editing (although my main thing is audio editing, the others are just hobbies)
- Low Input Lag is a must, as I have used some high-input-lag displays and it drives me insane! The U2312HM and 2311xi are the absolute best monitors I've tried as far as input lag goes, with the ZR2740w being almost imperceptibly slower but it's enough that I can notice (and again, becomes something I can't "un-see")
- VESA 100x100 mounts are mandatory, as it will be mounted on a fully-adjustable "arm" mount after a month or two
- Portrait-mode is very important, as I will not always have it mounted on the arm mount (maybe 80% of the time), so the stand it comes with NEEDS to be able to go to portrait
- Good "Response Time", basically I don't want to notice ghosting when gaming, although I do not seem to be particularly prone to this, but I'd rather it not be there at all
- GOOD WARRANTY AND GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
- I prefer the bezels to be as slim as possible (on ALL FOUR SIDES)
- I vastly prefer matte bezels and a "utilitarian" look (think Dell P-series and U-series), and I cannot stand shiny bezels or "we spend millions on our design team and we have to justify it somehow dammit!" designs
The first LCD monitor I ever bought for myself was a Viewsonic, the VA2012 which I purchased immediately after it came out. It wasn't the highest-end at the time, but it was 1680x1050 (16:10), had the perfect amount of AG, very adjustable picture settings, sharp image, etc. I still use it as a secondary display to this day! Not one dead or stuck pixel since I got it in ~05 or 06!!
Based on the above criteria, would the new Viewsonic meet my needs? You are pretty much the biggest expert on the monitor that I've seen, outside of Viewsonic themselves!
