Display and television maker ViewSonic has taken the wraps off its latest 27-inch LCD computer display, the attractively-named VX2739wm—and this time, the company is touting a world first: the only 27-inch display with a 1ms response time.
“We have been in the monitor business for more than 20 years, and every day we continue to innovate and push the limits of what is possible,” said ViewSonic senior product manager Sean Gunduz, in a statement. “This is truly an industry-leading display experience.”
The VX2739wm sports a 1,920 by 1,080-pixel native resolution, a 1,200:1 contrast ratio (which ViewSonic touts as a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio), and 300 cd/m² of brightness. The display also packs the connectivity, with an integrated four-port USB hub along with HDMI, DVI, and VGA input options, along with a VESA-compliant wall mount for folks who want to use it as an entertainment display. The VX2739wm also packs built-in 2 watt speakers with SRS Premium Sound support, and an ECO mode that can cut energy use by up to 35 percent. ViewSonic is also touting the display as designed with both PCs and Macs in mind.
The website touts the LCD monitor in language you might find hyperbolic, but it does sound neat nonetheless:
