An attractive, functional display with good color accuracy.

$219.99 at Amazon


Meet the VX2770Smh-LED, a mouthful of a monitor that’s beautifully designed and has some interesting, uncommon features. For $320 suggested retail, this thin-bezeled, widescreen, TFT-paneled, native 1080p display could be yours. For that price, you’re also getting some fancy shmancy filigree—touch-button controls, and a built-in speaker.

This 27-inch monitor is priced within the industry’s middle tier, and is also new for 2013, so our standards were a little higher than usual. Fortunately, it passed each test with some degree of success. The ViewSonic VX2770 performs solidly, with no unforgivable flaws.

The one drawback we found was an overly bright black level. Other than that, it’s a great choice for almost any use save pro graphics work, and is fairly priced. Add to that its media-friendly port selection, and it’s hard not to recommend it.
