ViewSonic VX2770Smh-LED Computer Monitor Review
An attractive, functional display with good color accuracy.
The VX2770Smh-LED is attractive and functional, and it performs efficaciously. For an MSRP of $320, ViewSonic has bundled an awful lot of quality into this monitor, and it shows. The real question remains: Why buy it?
Well, this color-accurate monitor is great for all kinds of uses: browsing the web, watching TV, gaming, even light photo editing. It doesn’t have the color space support for high-end graphic design, and its black level is not dark enough to make for good film watching, but for everything else it’s in the gold.
If you just need something cheap and effective, this monitor is not the way to go. It’s too pretty to hide away from the world; you should put it on display, in a lobby or a reception area. Buy it as a serious investment—unless you’re rolling in dough, $320 is too much to spend because you “just need a monitor.” However, if you’re looking to upgrade from low- to middle-tier in the most painless way possible, the VX2770 is winking while holding a pack of Mentos.
