ViewSonic VX2758-C-mh 27-inch Curved Gaming Monitor Review

No comments

There’s a plethora of gaming monitors abound that would cover your needs for high-performance esports or ultra-immersive gaming, which, quite frankly makes pulling the trigger on one a bit harder to do. From high refresh rates to gaming-centric features, monitors are divided into a bevy of segments that could thankfully help you decide on which one to get. But if you’re looking for an all-around display solution that can help you get kickstarted on a proper gaming experience no matter what you play, ViewSonic’s VX2758-C-mh may be up to the test.

We’ve received the ViewSonic VX2758 recently, and we’ve fairly had a good run with it over our course of usage. You can spot it going around for about Php16,500 in the local market, and it’s quite easy to find with several retailers carrying it as well.

Moving forward, ViewSonic didn’t seem to go all out when it comes to presentations with the VX2758. It comes in a standard retail carton packaging with the necessary info printed around the box to help perusing customers on the monitor. Not at all flaired up, and that should be alright to help it reach the cost. Standard inclusion are also as follows – there’s the VX2758 in the flesh, the mandatory manual/quick guide, a power cable, and an HDMI cable.

DESIGN


The VX2758 fits in our threshold for 1080p displays. 27 inches are the maximum we can go for Full HD on gaming, and it’s fairly a comfortable size for our usage and viewing pleasures. Its 1800R curvature also helps maintain eye comfort, brings a more immersive experience, and cover a wider field of view. ViewSonic also has an informative article up on their website regarding the benefits of curved monitor, which you can check by clicking here.


The back of the monitors are reserved for the ports. It isn’t exactly loaded. You’ll get one HDMI 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0 ports, one VGA port, a 3.5mm audio jack input and another one for output, and that’s about it. There’s also a Kenginsgton lock slot onboard, which should help you secure it a bit more. ViewSonic also equipped the VX2758 with two 2-watt speakers that sadly feels more of an afterthought than an actual feature. To emphasize, these are 2-watt speakers. It functions more of a stopgap than an actual audio solution since users will more than likely have a decent speaker or headset already. No VESA mount on this one, unfortunately.

The stand on the other hand is quite sturdy and takes a bit of space to plant firmly. The height isn't adjustable, but you'll be able to tilt it 5° forward and 20° back.

The settings can be adjusted through the singular joystick button located at the right side of the back of the monitor. It's your one stop shop to adjust your settings. There are also presets such as Standard, Game, Movie, Web, Text, MAC, and Mono. And you can switch display source from D-Sub, HDMI, and HDMI 2. More settings can be found on the OSD where you can adjust the volume, color, Blue Light Filter, and such.





PERFORMANCE


The VX2758 is an MVA-panel monitor that comes with 144Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync, as well as a 5ms response time GTG w/OD. Static Contrast Ratio is at 3,000:1, bright level is up to 280 cd/m2.

Color Uniformity at Brightness 100%

Color Uniformity evaluates uniformity based on a matrix that tests out nine different areas of the display to check uniformity. The closer the value is to 0, the better performance it has.

Color Accuracy

Color Accuracy shows how well different basic color hues are being reproduced by the display. Results are displayed in a Delta E Value for each Color Tone. The lower the value, the better the reproduction of the color hue.

CONCLUSION

The ViewSonic VX2758-C-mh has the chops of a performer. It will elevate your eSports experience all thanks to its high refresh rate and great color accuracy.  Sure, a 27-incher would be a bit too much of size for a 180p. But it’s our threshold and we can see ourselves hitting it off as our daily driver.

There are a couple of kinks that need to be ironed out – its plastic body is a surefire fingerprint magnet, but you’re not exactly going to touch it over and over. Height isn’t adjustable, and that’s rarely an issue since you have a fix upon setup. The speakers are also more of an afterthought than a feature, so hopefully you already have a proper audio solution onboard. Moving forward, the lack of VESA mount is a loss on this one.

In the realm of 27-inch 1080p curved monitors, the ViewSonic 2758-C-mh gets competitive. It’s listed at $262.99 on ViewSonic’s website, with local pricing going for about Php16,500 in the local.  
To sum it up, the ViewSonic VX2758 makes one of the best choices if you’re looking for a curved monitor that can step up your gaming experience to new heights.
