ViewSonic VP2780-4K review

 

Great quality and versatility from this focused business panel

Excellent image quality ; Versatile stand design ; High resolution ; Consistent across whole screen

No speakers ; Heavy and bulky design ; Pricier than rivals

Scores in depth ViewSonic screens are sometimes associated with the budget market, but there's nothing cheap about the VP2780-4K, which costs a hefty $1,093 (about £700, or AU$1,430).

ViewSonic VP2780-4K UHD monitor review

 

This 27-inch display is well specified with an IPS technology panel, matt anti-glare hard coating and 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution. This panel is from LG, although it's not clear if this new UHD version is a true 10-bit panel or follows similar designs...

The VP2780-4K is expensive for a consumer monitor at £699, although relatively cheap when set against professional monitors with full AdobeRGB colour and polished OSD menus, for which you can expect to pay closer to twice the price. ViewSonic's...

Viewsonic VP2780-4K review

 

Viewsonic serves up an affordable, good-quality 4K monitor for under £700 – it's not quite up to professional standards, though

Despite its faults, the ViewSonic VP2780-4K has much to recommend it. The array of features and connectivity is impressive, the image quality is great for the cash, and the zero-pixel-defect guarantee is a major plus point. This isn’t a true...

ViewSonic VP2780-4K

 

The ViewSonic VP2780-4K is a feature-rich 27-inch UHD monitor that delivers very accurate colors, excellent grayscale performance, and sharp image detail.

Sharp 4K imagery. Solid color and gray-scale performance. Features and ports aplenty

Finicky controls. No advanced color settings

The ViewSonic VP2780-4K ($889.99) is a moderately priced 27-inch monitor with an impressive feature set including 10-bit color technology, multiple input connections, and an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a 3,840-by-2,160 Ultra-High-Definition...

ViewSonic 27-inch 4K LED Monitor (VP2780-4K) Review

 

After a huge amount of high refresh rate, gaming-focused monitors, we take a step back and look at the ViewSonic VP2780-4K.

Review: ViewSonic VP2780-4K

 

T here's no two ways about it: the ViewSonic VP2780-4K is something of a bargain by the standards of professional monitors. It still isn't cheap, but this 27in monitor packs in everything you could reasonably expect for the cash. Take a 3,840 x 2,160...

ViewSonic VP2780-4K 27-inch Ultra HD Monitor Review

 

We've got ViewSonic's VP2780-4K in the lab today. Is this 27-inch, Ultra HD, IPS-based monitor worth your hard-earned money? Let's find out!

Build quality • Contrast • Gamma and grayscale • High output • Input lag • Out-of-box color accuracy

Gamma and color in user mode

27 inches is on the small side for Ultra HD but the VP2780-4K has enough positive qualities to merit serious consideration. No calibration is required thanks to a factory adjustment that is backed up by a data sheet individual to each monitor. With a...

The Viewsonic VP2780-4K is a 4K ultra HD monitor that's definitely been designed with graphics, post production and content development professionals in mind With a superior color accuracy and performance specs that were put together specifically for...

Excellent refresh rate ; Excellent connectivity ; Includes HDMI 2.0 ; Very solid 10-bit color ; 16:9 aspect ratio perfecto for gaming ; Numerous display augmentation features ; DisplayPort 1.2

Utilitarian design without elegance ; Possible response time lag due to IPS screen ; Slightly flimsy design ; No internal speakers

So good I forgive the touch "buttons"

 

I heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a professional display. I use it for software development. Besides the slightly large footprint I have zero complaints. I also own a Dell P2715Q and when waking from sleep with my 5k iMac it would flicker...

- great colours and panel in general - solid construction - works well with my 5k iMac (same can't be said for Dell's P2715Q) - clean look (after removing energy star sticker)

- stand has a big footprint with those two prongs out the front
