  • is this equal to Dell 27 Gaming Monitor - S2721DGF

    • No monitors are equal, they'll all have their strong and weak points; until you throw bulk money at them, and the gap narrows a fair bit.

      • so which one is better

        • It depends on your use case, and what you value most in a panel.

          I'd personally never choose the Dell, because of the contrast ratio.

          But if I was doing photos, I'd consider it heavily.

          Etc etc.

          • @MasterScythe: uh ok I got the dell for gaming but contemplating cancelling that order and getting this, The dell one cost me $500 where this is $100 cheaper

            • @michael9865: Fair enough.
              Since they're both so widely reviewed I'm not sure what I can add to them that hardwareunboxed and rtings hasn't already revealed.

              They've provided full (Tested) specs for both, whatever aspect you look for in a gaming screen, make sure it's 'better' in the one you choose.

          • @MasterScythe: 900:1 contrast ratio on the Dell vs this with a supposed 1000:1. You probably won't be able to tell the difference. I'd go the Dell as it has a higher refresh rate, better colour accuracy if you calibrate it, and vastly superior response time.

            • @Yuri Lowell: Native contrast was tested to be 882 : 1, compared to the tested native 1050 or so :1 on the viewsonic.

              Contrast gets better with local dimming, but only having 4 zones means the hotspots jump up massively.

              19% contrast is a fairly big jump for me. Won't be for everyone, but it's enough for me. Just try adjusting that big of a percentage in your osd :)

  • Tldr, compared to the viewsonic;

    better contrast by almost 10%.
    Extremely good panel uniformity.

    Otherwise, the viewsonic beats it in every way.

    Also, with slow dark response for an iPS many VA panels are competing in this price point.

    I'll pass on this one; good deal, but the $50 more for the viewsonic competitor is worth it.

    • which model is this?

      • vx2758-2kp-mhd

        • +3 votes

          Buyers are probably increasingly likely to find the newer VX2705-2KP-MHD in stock rather than the older VX2758-2KP-MHD. As far as I can tell, the VX2705 is a direct replacement for the VX2758.

          • @tmr3: Agreed. Identical panel and specs; we all assume it was a firmware and driver update to stop the occasional black screen issue some users reported.

    • dont forget a VA panel to an IPS is a massive colour difference also, depends what your after but IPS will always lose to VA on that front in this range, then again VA has very poor colour vs an IPS

    • Since we're talking about the viewsonics here, is the 100 bucks saving compared to the S2721dgf (oh god I actually remembered the model number now) actually worth it? I've watched hardware unboxed video but those numbers of 2ms frame rate difference or whatever is beyond my understanding.

      • The deciding factor would be more what you do more…

        If you do photos and colour accurate stuff, the Dell is spot on.

        If you play games in darkish rooms, then the extra 19% contrast of the viewsonic would be beneficial.

        The Dell is certainly more of an all-around panel, where the viewsonic has one decent advantage and a few MS improvement.

        So it depends what you look for in a monitor; both are great.

    • It isn't objective enough if you simply pick the strong side of Viewsonic and completely ignores the weaknesses. As an owner of a Viewsonic monitor (not VX2758-2KP-MHD), honestly, the quality control, the menu, and some of the attention to details isn't that good to be honest (and I am being nice). No height adjustable stand for VX2758-2KP-MHD is a bit disappointing.

      VX2758-2KP-MHD's colour gradient isn't great. You can rave about contrast ratio all you want, but you get IPS for the colours mostly. However, IPS, contrast ratio is a very important factor? Seriously? For consumer grade IPS, even that Viewsonic you mentioned has ordinary brightness level. The inability to get 8 bit + RFC done right (rtings mentioned it in their review). The response time is also not that great.

      Viewsonic - Innolux Panel (Chi Mei Optoelectronics, TPO Displays Corp.)
      AOC / Dell - LG Panel

      Realistically, it is wise to not overspend on 27 inch 2K monitors. Because if you are a gamer with a big deep pocket, you will be looking at a totally different class of monitors. Whether you decide to go with Viewsonic or AOC (or Dell) most likely will depend on your budget and when the specials are on. If you really want to nitpick monitors and look into the specs, you need to decide which aspects are most important to you. Also, be realistic, a consumer grade 2K gaming IPS monitor, contrast ratio is the most important factor?

      Each maker's IPS panels have pros and cons. If darker blacks is very important to you (though honestly, blacks are never the strength of IPS), then you might want to lean towards Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD. However, there are weaknesses of the Viewsonic (and as long as you are fine with those), then it makes sense. Each person's situation is different. Unless better blacks is a huge deal for you while IPS is still a must, otherwise, I would only recommend the Viewsonic if it is the cheapest and your budget is really tight.

  • Got mine from the PLE deal a little while back - coming from an old office-spec Dell it's incredible. There are better options at full price, but for sub-$400 it's still really good.

    • Same i got it at the last special. Great little monitor and prob the best at sub 400

    • Was that really a deal? I thought it was a pricing error that just got honoured, they had it at $349 while all other retailers had it at $439. Got a pair either way.

      • Same here. I got one at $349 on pre order and got it in late December. Good monitor

  • beyond beautiful.

  • that bezel is pretty rough.

  • I had the 1080p and wa spretty happy with it but had a defective panel.

    • Same, the 1080p was great value and the picture was good but it had some dead pixels so I returned it. Ended up getting a Dell 2K monitor to replace it.

  • Fyi, because of the DP1.2, it can only output either QHD/155Hz/8bit or QHD/120Hz/10bit(8bit with frc)

  • I have this - my black friday order finally got fulfilled a week and a half ago (lol). It's great, I have no complaints. The stand is awesome, size/clarity/colour great too. There is a displayport cable in the box. Haven't tried adaptive sync yet because my graphics card is too old and new ones are too bloody expensive right now

  • Is there a monitor with the same spec but ultrawide?

  • Aren't monitors like this usually like $600? What's the catch?

  • I didn't think this would be so but it turns out that 240Hz is scarily better than 144Hz. I personally have a G7 Samsung 240Hz 1440p. I didn't buy it because it had 240Hz, I bought it because its a qdot monitor. Turns out though that I'd never go back to a 144Hz now that I've experienced that it actually IS way better lmao

    • I think people need to stop going… this one particular feature is so huge thus the monitor I picked is the way to go. G7 isn't the same price.

      It's a VA, curved monitor with an attempt to get HDR 600 tick with lacklustre local dimming.

      It also has the usual issue with current gen (any pre-2021) monitors where HDMI is limited to HDMI 2.0. That means HDMI is limited to 2K 144Hz. It's good that it has 2 DisplayPorts, 1 HDMI combination. Having a newer firmware (a firmware update is available) is also good.

      VA monitors have made a comeback due to HDR being introduced. It depends on people. Some people do get annoyed with the colour shift, some don't.

      If you have a gaming PC capable of 2K 240Hz HDR gaming, then obviously a 240Hz monitor would be better. However, for people without such gaming setup, 240Hz would be an overkill.
