Conclusion: The Viewsonic VP2772 is a well-constructed professional monitor that offers superb picture quality, though some tinkering is required to correct the distorted image that’s produced on OS X, particularly reducing the sharpness to halfway.
Pros: Superb image quality. Good port selection. Wide viewing angles.
Cons: Boring design. Fiddly menu controls. Some OS X distortion.
Excerpt: The Viewsonic VP2772 is a top-of-the-line 27in monitor designed for those seeking a high pixel count and impressive colour accuracy. It's one of the more expensive 2,560x1,440 models we've seen, so our hopes were high for this IPS screen. The monitor didn't disappoint. Our colour calibrator showed the panel as displaying 100 per cent of the sRGB colour gamut after calibration.
Conclusion: The Viewsonic VP2772 is a solidly-constructed professional monitor that offers excellent picture quality out of the box, making it an excellent choice for Windows 8.1 users seeking a hassle-free option. Those on OS X should exercise caution, however, as the VP2772 requires Sharpness adjustments to correct the distorted image that's produced.
Conclusion: The VP2772 left us with some mixed feelings if we're honest. It was interesting to test another high resolution 27" model using the latest AH-IPS panel and GB-r-LED backlighting and overall we felt there was more good than bad to be said. On the positive side, from a colour point of view the screen performed very well. Default setup was very good and represented a decent factory calibration.
Pros: Good default setup and accuracy, Very good connectivity options, Good pixel response times and overdrive control
Cons: Missing competitor features like hardware calibration and uniformity correction, Limited aspect ratio control, Stand is a bit too industrial and chunky
