Great for Video Editing

I swapped out my Viewsonic 22 models for these 27 monitors. I have about 4' of horizontal work space. I set them up for 3K viewing and I just love them. Though at times I have to slide to one side or the other of my desk to read the text. So far I am a happy camper. I judge them to be a bit expensive, but I love the extra resolution.

Horrible off-center viewing.

Horrible off-center viewing. Many emails back and forth to support ended with RMA stating "that's not normal." Replacement one has the same issue. I have lots of monitors of all sizes and have never had anything like this before. Very disappointed.

Terrible "Glow"

By Joseph

The "IPS Glow" is extremely significant on this panel. From arms length if looking at one part of the screen there is a very visible circle that is within the viewing angle and the rest is significantly darker. It's extremely distracting while looking at anything with a light background. There is also noticeable backlight bleed making dark images look bad as well. Side by side with a Dell u2715h (a well-reviewed 1440p 27" IPS display) there just is no comparison. I know you get what you pay for, but this was absolutely not worth it.

Great Large Monitor

Have had this monitor for a week now and love it. Great resolution and large enough for multiple spreadsheets to be open at a time.

Perfect for my home office

Needed an extra screen for my home office setup when my old monitor decided to give out. Purchased this because of the price point, resolution and size and i feel that I got more than I paid for. Excellent quality.

Excellent for high end offfice use and still affordable

I've been a fan of ViewSonic monitors for over 10 years now, using them first at home, and then at work. Being IT Support I've setup thousands of monitors ranging from 17 inch 720p to 32 inch 4k concentrating mostly on 24 and 28 inch 1080p setups. I stopped working from home 4 years ago, but COVID sent me home again. I decided to upgrade my home displays from 19/24/19 1080p monitors to a pair of 27 inch 1440p (I was using a pair of 28 inch 1080p's at work). The 1440p upgrade from 1080p is well worth the cost. The contrast and refresh rate on these is great - even for streaming TV broadcasts (I play the news in the mornings while catching up on email). Make sure your system will support the resolution in the number of monitors you want. Using my dock I could only support one 1440p and two 1080p - so I have to run one from the dock and one from the laptop. I started out running one of the 27's and a 24 inch 1080p at the same time while I was figuring out what was going on with the dock - and I currently have them set up 27/24/27. I thought about keeping them setup like this because I do like having 3 monitors - but these 27's are so much nicer that the 24 inch 1080p has got to go. I think I'll get a 3rd one of these and mount it above...

The pictures show a hdmi and a vga cable. The spec says it has 2 hdmi and 1 Display port. Which is it?
Asked by: William
Mine does in fact have 2 HDMI and 1 displayport. The HDMIs work better than those on a lot of other monitors. On this monitor, the displayport is more reliable at helping the computer sort out what kind of resolution to feed it. Even so, if the HDMI comes up in some weird mode, you can usually unplug-replug the cable and it will right itself.
