Review on ViewSonic VX2478 SMHD Frameless Widescreen DisplayPort 2560X1440P, Anti Glare, ‎VX2478-SMHD, LCD, HD, IPS by John Walsh

Great monitor for gaming and here's why.

I bought the 27" 1440p model. Let me clarify something for everyone about this monitor. The stand isn't as bad as people make it out to be. If you have a rickety desk, yes you get a rickety monitor, but if "Your desk is fine, your monitor will be fine too. You can adjust the viewing angles of the monitor, but not the height, I don't really care. My panel has no glare, no dead pixels, no ghosting. I have nothing. but smooth, colorful gameplay Viewing angles are much better than a regular TN panel No, you don't need to do any "tricks" or "research" to get this monitor working at the right resolution I have a displayport ordered with my monitor and it picked the right resolution and the colors looked great right out of the box.The only setting I changed on the monitor is "normal response time" to "s super fast response time". Tape this monitor It's possible to make black, very black, you can suck blue out of the monitor to make white colors really bright. Supports full RGB and limited RGB. If you're gaming and having trouble running your games at that silky smooth 60 frames per second, zooming out your monitor to 1920 x 1080 won't "look blurry", you can't "see the pixels" and text isn't difficult to read. , your eyes are only used to high resolution, so going back to 1080 will make the difference between the two resolutions more obvious. Games look great on this monitor at 1080p. I'm running a GTX 1080 so for more demanding games I just disable SMAA but leave FXAA enabled, but when all else fails the downscaling still looks fine and I've had no issues. Keep in mind that this is a high-resolution monitor, so most of the jagged lines are gone without adding any additional effects. All in all a great monitor that exceeded my actually quite high expectations. Great gaming monitor, great panel, no glare, no dead pixels, no ghosting. If you're looking for a larger, higher-resolution IPS panel, this is definitely one to consider. I don't think you will be disappointed.
