Monitor Review: ViewSonic VX2739wm

HardwareCentral
9 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Yes, believe it or not, this gamer-courting behemoth also has something to offer greenies. The VX2739wm's specs say that it draws as much as 58 watts of electricity, though I personally never saw it draw more than about 50 watts in my testing, using a Kill-a-Watt meter. That was in its Standard mode with the monitor's brightness set to the default of 100 percent (which I found to be a bit too bright, quite frankly).

  • Conclusion: The bright CCFL backlight put its LED-backlit rivals to shame, and it's competitively priced, but Iiyama's E2710HDSD is slightly better value.

  • Excerpt: ViewSonic 's VX2739wm 27in full-HD LCD monitor is targeted towards gamers and boasts an HDMI port and built-in speakers. It is relatively inexpensive for a monitor of this size and offers reasonable image quality, but it doesn't excel in any particular area.

The ViewSonic VX2739wm is a relatively inexpensive 27in monitor that offers reasonable image quality

  • Summary: If you're purely after a very large LCD monitor, then the ViewSonic VX2739wm should be near the top of your list. However, if you want optimal image quality, we would recommend spending a little less on a smaller but better quality display.
  • Pros: Sheer size of screen makes it a winner, matte display, Full HD, HDMI, minimal ghosting
  • Cons: Limited adjustment options, awkwardly positioned OSD buttons, slight backlight bleeding

  • Conclusion: I was left a little torn when it came to summarising the  VX2739wm. On the one hand you have a very big screen at 27" supporting 1080 HD resolution and offering a fairly decent range of interface options and features. The presence of HDMI and even the (limited) integrated speakers make this a fairly decent desktop monitor / LCD TV cross over.
  • Pros: Excellent black depth and contrast ratio, Good pixel responsiveness and  very low input lag, Very competitive price in 27" range
  • Cons: Poor default colour accuracy, 1ms advertised response time not achieveable without severe RTC overshoot, Limited viewing angles due to TN Film technology

Viewsonic VX2739wm monitor review

Pocket Lint
15 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Developments in modern displays and associated devices have made it increasingly feasible to watch video and television on "computer" monitors, with the only real drawback being their relatively small size. Viewsonic addresses this particular issue with the VX2739wm: a large 27-inch screen with a "world's first" response time of just 1ms.
  • Pros: Stylish design, range of connectivity, fast response time
  • Cons: No environment presets/custom modes, resolution and aspect ratio means you may not have as much room as you'd expect, doesn't really excel in any one area
