Viewsonic's VP2770-LED is very much a high-end monitor. It's a 27in IPS screen with a huge 2,560x1,440 resolution, meaning it has 20% more screen area than a standard 1920x1080 display.

While text can look rather jagged on a 1920x1080 screen this large, at the VP2770-LED's resolution things are much smoother. Modern versions of Windows cope fine with the resolution, scaling the operating system's icons to suit, and it works particularly well with Windows 8's Start Screen apps, which tend to run full-screen.

The large resolution also means that it's simple to work on two documents side by side, and it’s perfect for using applications with multiple toolbars and windows, such as photo-editing like the excellent Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.

The monitor is also packed with features. It has VGA, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, and there's also a built-in hub with two USB and two USB3 ports. The screen is also highly adjustable. You can use it in portrait and landscape modes, tilt it towards or away from you or pivot it from left to right. There's also a large amount of height adjustment - you can raise the base of the screen from 88mm all the way to 242mm, so you should be able to get comfortable no matter how tall you are. The only real drawback is that the three-legged stand measures an enormous 518x418mm from leg tip to leg tip, so takes up an awful lot of your desk.
