Viewsonic VX2753MH-LED review

Verdict:

Twin HDMI inputs make the VX2753MH-LED quite flexible, but it has an uneven backlight and at this price we'd expect a few more options to spice up its basic image quality

With VGA and twin HDMI inputs, you can have a PC, games console and Blu-ray player all plugged into the 27in Viewsonic VX2753MH-LED at the same time. It also has a separate audio input as well as a headphone output - using the latter would be preferable, as the internal 2W speakers are loud but very dull, with hardly any high- or low-end to round out the sound.

We're not big fans of the VX2753MH-LED's design - there's a plastic flange that surrounds the screen, in effect widening the bezel, and along with large white logos it distracts from the image. It's also unusual that the display doesn't have a VESA wall mount. It's good to see that the screen has a 3H coating on it to protect it against minor knocks and scrapes.

A simple but clear menu system is controlled by physical buttons on the side of the monitor. There are very few image quality options: along with brightness and contrast, you get a choice of four standard colour temperatures as well as User and sRGB options. We found the latter was far too dark, while the User setting only offers basic control over red, green and blue levels, so we stuck with the balanced 6500K setting.

There are few other options. The dynamic contrast option made the image too dark on average and caused distracting shifts in brightness, while the Eco mode simply offered two levels of lower brightness to save energy. There's also an overdrive option, to speed up response times, but we noticed no difference with it enabled. Although we often complain about heavy-handed image processing options, we'd still expect to find more options on a 27in monitor costing £260.

Image quality was quite variable. We found that colours looked a little washed out and bland, particularly when compared to monitors using newer panels. Contrast was also lacking, and we lost quite a lot of detail in the darker parts of our test footage. With a slightly uneven backlighting, this monitor simply isn't as good as its competition.

The stylish BenQ EW2730V has far better image quality, a wider range of inputs and costs only a little more. It's the better buy.
