ViewSonic’s new VX2457 comes in several opposite variants. The VX2457-mhd on exam here is a 24in 1920×1080 TN guard that supports AMD FreeSync. If we have a concordant AMD graphics card, you’ll get a tear-free knowledge during adult to 75Hz. The guard can be found for £139 on Amazon. See also: Best bill displays 2016.
ViewSonic VX2457-mhd guard review: Build peculiarity and Design
The ViewSonic VX2457-mhd has a sloping mount (forward 5 degrees, retrograde 23 degrees), though no focus or tallness adjustment. Usefully, it can be mounted on a customary VESA 100x100mm stand.
We were unhappy by a build quality, as we found a mount to be rather unstable. The silken cosmetic bottom competence demeanour nice, though it does tend to uncover a mud and fingerprints. Thankfully, a rest of a guard is finished with a matt grey cloaking that is also reduction distracting to a eye.
The bezels are conjunction skinny like on a Asus VN247H, though nor are they overly large like on a BenQ RL2460HT. Adding a bit of character during a front is a winding cosmetic energy light, though we can spin this off if we don’t like it.
At a behind on a bottom right-hand side there are a few awkwardly placed buttons that are used for a on-screen-display (OSD).
The shade itself has a matt finish that prevents reflections. There’s a also a Kensington Lock slot, that allows we to secure your guard to a desk. See all arrangement reviews.
ViewSonic VX2457-mhd guard review: Connectivity and OSD
The ViewSonic VX2457-mhd has HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA connectors during a back, alongside an auxiliary 3.5mm submit and output. There’s no DVI connection, though this shouldn’t be a problem for many people.
The guard has – like many monitors, a span of skinny speakers. These are unequivocally only for Windows sounds – you’re not unequivocally going to wish to use them for gaming or examination videos.
We also found OSD to be good presented, with a options to adjust a colour, image, response time and there’s even a filter to revoke blue light – accessible if you’re regulating a guard late during night as blue light from LCD panels is proven to keep some people awake.
ViewSonic VX2457-mhd guard review: Performance
The arrangement runs during a 75Hz modernise rate, that is good for those who wish a smoother gaming knowledge over a customary 60Hz modernise rate found on many monitors.
We found a ViewSonic to have a good altogether response time and low submit loiter in quick paced games. The Low Input mode found within a OSD noticeably reduces submit lag. However, Low Input mode can’t be used during a same time as a faster Response Time option, that is odd.
In a tests we found a several ‘faster’ response options led to conspicuous ghosting, so it’s best to capacitate a Low Input mode and have a Response Time choice set to Standard.
Using a Spyder5Elite, a VX2457-mhd achieved a progression that displayed 98 percent of sRGB’s colour space and a common 77 percent of AdobeRGB’s colour space. It also had considerable colour correctness with an normal Delta E of 0.95 (lower is better). See also: Best UHD displays 2016.
Unfortunately, observation angles aren’t great, You unequivocally have to demeanour during a guard square-on to see colours as they’re meant to be. At a slight angle, possibly from a tip and bottom or left and right, a colour change is noticeable. This generally influenced tiny content created underneath icons, where purple-blueish colours would gleam by a pristine black text.
The guard has a good liughtness outlay of 250 cd/m2.
Finally, we were tender with AMD FreeSync, that enables certain AMD graphics cards to synchronise with a monitor’s 75Hz modernise rate. This reduces ripping that occurs in certain games and gives a noticeably smoother look. Of course, a VX2457-mhd will work with Nvidia and AMD cards that don’t support FreeSync. You only won’t get a same synchronisation.
