This beautiful display has a 15,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, DVI and VGA inputs, 3ms response time, and a VESA mountable glossy finish design. The VA2703 features an automatic aspect ratio adjustment, which senses the input single and will not stretch a 4:3 signal but instead, it will position the image in the middle of the screen with side bars.

What is 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. The VA2703 with a response time of just 3ms is ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Superb Dynamic Contrast Ratio

Provides for darker black levels and better overall front-of-screen performance. Darker black levels enhance brightness for an exquiste picture of all color levels.

Pair it with a ViewSonic or Mac computer

One of the key advantages of the VA2703 monitor is its diverse connectivity options, making it flexible to be paired with a PC or a Mac computer. Now you can hook up any Viewsonic PC as well as a MacBook or a Mac Mini to the VA2703 and enjoy widescreen with LED backlight!

VESA mountable

The VA2703 features a 100mm x 100mm VESA mountable design that allows you to mount it on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. You can detach the base easily by unscrewing four screws and then mounting the display on its new stand or wall mount.

Eco-mode for up to 35% energy savings*

ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode function comes standard with the VA2703. When you don’t need all of the powerful features the VA2703 has to offer, you have the option to reduce the monitor’s brightness, save energy, save the planet and prolong the lamp life. 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. *Energy savings may vary based on actual usage and other factors.

The best pixel performance guarantee and 3 year limited warranty

One of the aspects that makes ViewSonic a market leader in displays is its dedication to quality. ViewSonic is committed to use the highest grade panels and offer the best pixel performance policy in the market. We also back our displays with 3-year limited warranty for your peace of mind.

Everything mentioned by others about the quality of the screen is accurate. This monitor is visually fantastic.

BUT if you do any one of the following...

1) turn the Brightness down past 92%
2) put monitor in Eco-Mode
3) enable Dynamic Contrast

then you will hear a static buzzing sound, kind of like having tinnitus - that constant ringing in your ear.

This is not a problem if you keep the monitor on full brightness (92-100%), but my bet is you don't currently have your display on 100% brightness. Turn it up to 100% and then imagine it as 27". And then imagine it's late at night or early in the morning, or you've been working on the computer for a few hours. Eye strain. But you can always turn the brightness down and then hear the ringing in your ears. It's an unfortunate combo. Unfortunate enough to knock it down 2 stars from the 5-star visuals.

I believe this explains the affordability of this monitor.

This is a great monitor without spending a small fortune. After some tinkering with the brightness and contrast, very good image. Only downside is there is no sound bar available. Even contacted the company. There is also no height adjustment which is only a minor annoyance. Again, Viewsonic makes a great product for the price range. Replaced dual monitors which I could do away with now that I'm on Windows 7. Using this at work and spend most of my day on the computer. Very satisfied and would recommend.

There are two types of 27" monitor on the market.
- General purpose: 1920 x 1080
- Professional: 2560 x 1440

1920x1080 used to be the standard resolution for 22" monitor. By stretching 22" to 27" without increase resolution, you get lower PPI (pixel per inch) which means lesser image quality and text. It's perfectly fine for general purpose like watching video and surfing web. But these are not for photographers, engineers and designers or any profession who spend long hours in front of a monitor.

Price wise, it's a pretty good deal. FYI, you can get a 22" 1920x1080 monitor for about $140. 27" pro monitor starts at $800, for good reasons. They have almost 180 degree viewing angle in both landscape and portrait orientation, gamut correction (accurate color representation) and anti-reflective screen aka matte screen.

I purchased the Viewsonic 27 inch monitor as a replacement for a 24 inch Samsung on my family's secondary computer. I was mainly drawn to the Viewsonic based on it's price. For a few dollars more I could step up to a 27 inch monitor.
The monitor does not have any height or angle adjustments; the stand does swivel, though. There is a large amount of light bleed-through at the bottom of the panel.
The monitor's colors are acceptable for surfing the web and playing flash games; I wouldn't want to use it for photo or video editing.
All in all it is a nice budget 27 inch monitor.

I work from home and have for several years. I have a docking station for my work laptop to provide more work area. I've had a 20" monitor for years. Recently I re-built a PC for my daughter. Instead of buying a little monitor for her, I gave her my work monitor and purchased this one for my office. WOW. Wish I would have done this along time ago... however the price point and availability on Amazon made it only too convienent. I can open up dual spread sheets and compare data easily without having to stretch across both monitor and laptop - something I find myself doing alot due to the excel files we use at work. Totally Awesome!!! Highly recommend

I've been using this daily, for development work, the past 2 months and love using it! I've got no noise coming from it so I'm not sure what others are talking about.

This monitor is sweet! For the money, nothing else I could find even comes close. For any of you out there that have commented on the buzzing sound below level 90 on brightness control, the simple solution is to adjust brightness to 90 and then adjust contrast to you liking. This will allow you to have less brightness without the buzzing.
