Video Review



I ordered this on a Tuesday, received it on Thursday, with free super saver shipping. This monitor is very nice, not a dead pixel. I have a new video card coming with dual DVI so I can run my 19″ Gateway (which is great too, been using it analog, sharp as can be). I got this to a)have huge primary monitor for audio editing, and b) for streaming video. Though it’s hooked up with a VGA cable until my new card arrives, I must say this monitor looks freakin terrific. I almost think I don’t need DVI, it’s that good. I can’t wait to get the new video card.

So, here’s my experience so far: I’ve read in many reviews that this monitor has backlight bleed to whatever extent. True, which I noticed upon streaming an HD TV show). Top and botom, on dark scenes, a bit of bleed. Not a deal breaker for me at all; I had to look for it. The brightness was 100% out of the box, too much; I suggest tailoring the contrast and brightness to taste, which was no big deal for me. Colors need no adjustment in my opinion, though I’m not a photo/video guy; they look spot-on to me.

I’ve heard that readability re a 1080p monitor can be less than great. Not so here. Just as readable as my 19 inch, only WAY bigger. Again, I’m using my stock video card and a VGA cable, and it’s great. I actually expected less!

My experience and recommendation? This monitor is huge, really nice all the way around. To be honest, when it came on I almost squirted in my shorts! But seriously, this is really awesome, I’m in love with it already. When I go dual-screen, I’ll be one happy camper. I only wish I had room for 2 of these (I don’t really need my secondary monitor this big, but it would be incredible), but my desk is overloaded already with monitors plus my KRK Rokit 8s that I use for audio. BTW, this will be my main monitor for editing, and a real joy, while using my second screen for the mixer, FX, etc..

I did a fair amount of research on 27″ screens, and for this money, <$300, I couldn’t find anything this well reviewed. Also, for where I live, there was no sales tax, and as I said the free shipping got it to me in all of 2 days, and I would have waited a week. Beautiful monitor, a grand deal for this size at less than $300, I don’t see how you can go wrong! Get it!!


Beautiful, Absolutely Beautiful!

I was initially a little skeptical, but I’m thoroughly pleased with this monitor in every way! I bought 2 of these to use as dual monitors for my Mac Pro. Although I did install the software that came with it, they worked great right out of the box. Images on these are sharp and beautiful through my DVI connections. Taking the limits of the size and power of the internal speakers into consideration, the speakers sound really nice. I have the speakers at their default 80% volume, and control everything else from my Mac. I love how accommodatingly universal they made this so you can use it on any computer platform you have, or as a regular TV if you want. The only cable they didn’t include is an HDMI cable.

Introducing the World’s first 27″ 1ms monitor, the VX2739wm! Big screen, sleek design, fast response time and diverse connectivity options – everything you need to work or play. With 27″ 1080p panel, 1ms super fast response time, HDMI, DVI, VGA inputs and 4-port USB hub, ViewSonic’s VX2739wm LCD will make your games seem real and your graphics picture perfect.

What is 1ms response time?
Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies.Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Another first from Viewsonic!
Being one of the technology leaders in the display industry, Viewsonic was the first to introduce an LCD monitor with 2ms response time back in 2005. Today, ViewSonic is here again to introduce the World’s first 27” monitor with 1ms response time delivering the long-awaited good news to gamers and video enthusiasts everywhere.
Full HD 1080p resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio
The VX2739wm features a 27″ widescreen with 1920×1080 resolution that is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.The Viewsonic VX2739wm’s 27″ panel offers another new trend in the LCD panel market, the16:9 aspect ratio. This new aspect ratio not only natively supports Full HD 1080p content, but displays Full HD without distortion. For example, a 1920×1200 resolution monitor will also support Full HD 1080p but it will either stretch to fit into a full screen or would show blank side bars to avoid distortion. With a 16:9 aspect ratio panel, you will get the most out of your HD content since it is natively designed in this format.
The Power of HDMI
HDMI is one of the most powerful and widely available communication standards that connect digital audio/video sources such as DVD/Blu-ray players, personal computers (PCs, laptops), video game consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, computer monitors and digital televisions. An HDMI cable supports any TV or PC video format, including HD video and up to 8 channels of digital audio. Connect your monitor to your desktop or laptop computer and work, surf the web or play games on your XBOX360 or PS3. You can even connect it to a cable box or a satellite receiver and watch TV on your monitor! Although the monitor doesn’t have a tuner to receive the TV signals from the air, an HDMI + receiver box combination gives you the same TV experience.
