Summary: Loving this monitor is has great colors and lots display area to work my magic. Being a photographer I can say it was worth the purchase. I see some people have complained about support for Macs. Fortunately for me I run Windows 8.1 Pro and have had no issues with it. Lightroom and Photoshop look great on it. I can say I'm very pleased with this purchase. It was a good happy medium going over getting one of the much higher priced professional photography monitors.
Excerpt: I am a web designer and I was considering another monitor for my mac laptop. I'm so glad I bought this one instead! I got a lot more features for around the same price as the other monitor I was considering, and it is easily compatible with my mac. It has every type of conection you will ever need, and all the cables are included. The colors, picture, design of the montitor, everything about it is great!
Summary: The ViewSonic VP2772 is a large monitor with a screen measuring about 13 1/4 in. x 23 1/2 in. This is a great size for desktop use. It is wide enough both for using two documents at the same time and for watching wide-format video, but not so wide as to have those odd proportions like a side-by-side display monitor. The case and stand are of very good quality and the height is adjustable.
Summary: Pros: Amazing color accuracy! I thought my old VP2365 had decent colors, but next to this monitor, the colors look so far off I want to buy a calibration tool. The calibration report I received was much better than E<3. In Adobe RGB mode, only 1 of the grays even touched the E=2 line, all other colors were E<2. 2560x1440 pixels in a 27" monitor makes for a good pixel density. This helps the edges of objects look smoother and less pixelated/jagged. Fast response time.
Summary: Note that is "Good color" not "outstanding color". I am using this next to a Dell U3011. I have used it (the Dell) every day at work for 3 years now and I LOVE it. Below are some points to compare and who the winner is in each: Note: both monitors are connected to my Dell Latitude e6510 using DisplayPort Cost: ViewSonic by about $350 (about 40%) When I bought the Dell a few years back, it was over $1300. At the time of this review, the ViewSonic is only $900.
Excerpt: I am a professional motion graphics designer, vfx artist, and digital cinematographer, so I need a monitor that offers both clarity and accuracy in color reproduction; this one does the trick!! Initially I had planned to use it as a second display with my (late 2013) new MacPro, but since the 4K display I had hoped to buy wasn't out yet, I decided to go with this as my primary display.
Summary: I got this product a few days back and I am very happy with it. The picture is sharp, connectivity is good and I have no issues with it though I will provide another review in a few weeks. I did a lot of research and read a number of reviews so it is worth it. Only word of caution is that it is a bit pricey. On a separate note, I am not sure about the review from the previous buyer but is it incorrect and misleading.
