Summary: At AU$599, the VX2739wm epitomises the "cheap and cheerful" category. It's definitely not a performance leader, but it does provide a huge, full HD monitor for an incredibly cheap price. We'd wager many people would be happy with that.
Pros: Huge size for cheap price, Can take 24p content, Impressive typical contrast ratio
Cons: Auto-input switching wastes power, Little adjustability in the stand, Image is too sharp, Poor speakers, Side buttons
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
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.
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
