What is 1ms response time?
Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies.

Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Another first from Viewsonic!
Being one of the technology leaders in the display industry, Viewsonic was the first to introduce an LCD monitor with 2ms response time back in 2005. Today, ViewSonic is here again to introduce the World’s first 27” monitor with 1ms response time delivering the long-awaited good news to gamers and video enthusiasts everywhere.

Full HD 1080p resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio
The VX2739wm features a 27" widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution that is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.

The Viewsonic VX2739wm’s 27" panel offers another new trend in the LCD panel market, the16:9 aspect ratio. This new aspect ratio not only natively supports Full HD 1080p content, but displays Full HD without distortion. For example, a 1920x1200 resolution monitor will also support Full HD 1080p but it will either stretch to fit into a full screen or would show blank side bars to avoid distortion. With a 16:9 aspect ratio panel, you will get the most out of your HD content since it is natively designed in this format.


The Power of HDMI
HDMI is one of the most powerful and widely available communication standards that connects digital audio/video sources such as set-top boxes, DVD players, personal computers (PCs, laptops), video game consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, computer monitors, and digital televisions. With just one cable, HDMI supports any TV or PC video format, including high-definition video and up to 8 channels of digital audio. This powerful technology comes standard in VX2739wm. This way, you can connect your monitor to your desktop or laptop computer and work, surf the web or play games. Or you can connect it to your gaming console and enjoy the large 27” screen, 1ms response time time and integrated speakers. You can even connect it to a cable box or a satellite receiver and watch TV on your monitor! Although the monitor doesn’t have a tuner to receive the TV signals from the air, HDMI +receiver box combination gives you the same TV experience. And another great example of the countless video sources you connect to is a Blu-ray DVD/CD player.

You can connect three different sources at the same time and then toggle from one to another by selecting the input source through the On-Screen-Display (OSD). You can also connect one of your computer’s USB ports to monitor’s USB uplink input which then multiplies the USB ports to four. You can even connect up to four USB devices to your monitor and save yourself from the hassle of reaching out to your computer’s USB ports. Also, you can connect your audio source to the VX2739wm and listen through the integrated speakers or you can easily hook up your headphones to the monitor for privacy.


Eco-mode for up to 35% energy savings

ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VX2739wm.

You can select one of the “Optimize” or “Conserve” options and save up to 35% energy. Especially under low ambient light conditions, adjusting the brightness will improve visibility by reducing eye fatigue. Reducing brightness will also prolong the monitor’s lamp life, improving your return on investment.

VESA mountable
The VX2739wm features a 200mm x 100mm VESA mountable design that allows you to mount it on a monitor stand or wall , depending on your specific needs. You can detach the base easily by unscrewing four screws and then mount.

Quality of the picture is crisp and clear.
Chris Han
With that in mind I bumped up this review from a 4 to a 5 star review since I originally downgraded it due to the HDMI Sound supposedly being bad.

Buy it and you won't regret and will be the envy of your friends.

I got this monitor to replace my dell 2208wfp. It was a toss up between this one and the Samsung P2770H. I chose this one because of the 1ms response time, and the greater contsrast ratio. The Samsung is 50,000:1, 1000:1...Viewsonic is 100,000:1, 1200:1. Windows 7 recognized it right away and the color out of the box was very good. You can change the Image Color Temperature so I set mine at 7500k because i like the screen to look a little darker for playing games, default is 6500k. Set up was very easy, just have to screw on the stand, no tools required, just slide the stand on and turn the screw with your fingers ( theres a little tab dealy attached to the head of the screw )and your ready to go. The stand is very sturdy, no fears of it tipping should you feel the need to slam your hands down on your desk in frustration, push youself back from the desk, or from smacking your hip/leg/foot on said desk. If you wall mount it you won't have any of these issues. But alas, i have a corner desk so no wall mounting for me. I don't use the monitors speakers so i have no comment about them. Well maybe one thing, i used the onscreen options to set them to Mute. Helpful huh? Oh also under the Manual Image Adjust theres a box to turn on Dynamic Contrasting. I turned this on and it auto sets the contrast and brightness for you. Im not one of those people who likes to mess around with every little video setting, trying to get the "perfect" picture. Color temp to 7500k, Dynamic Contrast on = awsome picture...... in my opinion. You may not like it, so feel free to go nuts playing with the color settings. Theres a Memory Recall option that will restore the factory settings should you over indulge.Read more ›

I used a 19inch Samsung HDTV Ln-1954H as a computer monitor. The desktop, icons, graphics, games- everything seemed to be extra bright. Ive used an Acer monitor, NEC, as well as a Mac and found none of those to be as bright. 2 years later, I upgraded to this Viewsonic. I had been over the search engine trying to find hands-on articles, reviews, pictures, and Ive found mixed reviews. A few reviews cited a bleed (light/glow appearing around the edges of the LCD), bleached colors, and a wobbly stand. While the stand, in my opinion, is stable enough (provided you fasten it to the neck or can be mounted on wall) the monitor is fine [notice I make no mention of the audio function]. After the brighter-than-normal colors on the Samsung, I find the so called bleached colors are welcome. When playing a video disk, the colors are seem normal- although a user can adjust the color temperature on the OnScreen Display. A user can also use the manual controls through a video card suite like ATI Catalyst Control Center or the NVidia equivalent.
A nice quality of the this Viewsonic makes everything look sharp- the Windows Start button in Windows7 looks sharper, the Windows logo in Office2007 does too. Adobe Creative Suite looks as sharp as it should on a Mac (although proper color adjustments are still necessary for graphic work). Games look sharp, there is no ghosting, thanks to the 1MS response time. My brother had noticed a increase in the amount of detail that the Viewsonic shows over my old Samsung.
Hooked up to a HDMI switcher, a game console also looks nice on this machine. The PS3 XMB looks sharp, Blu-Rays seem better (although the increase in the screen size also helps here), even the Earth visualization in the music player seems a whole lot better.

I bought this LCD in efforts to upgrade from my 19" ViewSonic. At first I was thinking 24" was what I wanted to do as 21/22 wasn't a big enough jump from the 19 but when I saw at my local Costco the difference between a 24" & 27"; wow its significant. Yes it does put you in a higher price tier but if you think about it; you're not going to upgrade monitors for another 5 years minimum if you're someone like me who is an everyday user that isn't super high maintenance with the newest tech goodies.

It was between this and the Samsung 27" and w/ the extra bragging rights of having a 1ms response time; keeping it in the ViewSonic line for brand consistency and the sexy all black trim; I'm super happy with this buy. I use it to double as my monitor for my laptop and switch inputs between VGA to DVI/HDMI for my PS3. Before this monitor I've gone for the longest time w/o having an High Definition video output and boy is 1080p sweet. You literally could play video games across my room (10 feet) and still be able to read the subtitles clearly.

As far as the sound, you know if you are using your monitor as your main source of sound output; you need to re-evaluate your computer/entertainment setup as you're missing half of the potential out there. For me; I was not intending to use this monitor for any sound output at all as my sound setup is with an external receiver with outputs to some external speakers. Today though, I decided to say hey; let's keep the music going off the laptop and test out the sound w/ the PS3 on this monitor. To tell you the truth; it's not bad. Don't expect super awesome sound but all I wanted to was hear the sound effects of the game w/ menu selection; gaming battles and so on and I'm pleased. This was just another bonus w/ this monitor which makes it want me to give it a 5 star plus!

Hope that helps; enjoy!
- Michael
