Postscript - Replacement monitor works flawlessly and my only complaint now is they have lowered the price on the monitor. Thanks again Amazon for quickly and painlessly replacing the defective monitor.
Once back from the holiday visits to family, I was able to use the monitor also with my PC and to see how well my initial very positive reaction to it was holding up. I have to add this to make what I'm going to say make more sense. I had been using a Samsung 32" Smart Television, it was one of the higher end ones with the upgraded speakers, 3 HDMI ports, 1080p max, so it wasn't a pushover. Once I got settled in with this Viewsonic, I started wondering why I kept leaning forward to change the settings. I kept looking for a remote control. Then, as if a higher power, computer deity was looking down, my PC's speakers (Harmon Kardon Soundsticks) stopped working. That's not a surprise as they were my third set in 5 years. I switched the sound from the speakers to this monitor.
The sound this monitor produces might be the worst I've ever heard. I was playing Madden 19, the crowd sounded like they were inside a garbage can, two blocks from my house. It was like a version of white noise. I turned the master volume on the monitor up to 100 but still could only understand about half of what the announcers said. I started messing with the settings thinking there had to be a way to make the speakers sound better but there wasn't. This also reminded me of how nice a remote would be with this monitor.
When you change the settings, the buttons are little thumb buttons on the back left side of the monitor. Meaning, you can't see which one you're pushing. They sort of "fixed" that by having the buttons show up on your screen but there's six of them. If you're aiming for one, you pretty much have to let your finger slide down them until you get to the 3rd or 4th one that you need to press. It could close before you get it done. And each menu has up to 3 levels. Meaning, you press the "enter/okay" button on what you're looking for and it opens a new menu. The six buttons change from up/down to left/right depending on which menu you're in.
You're welcome to look over my 14 years of reviews here at Amazon and see how easily I'm annoyed by something simple being made complex. Within a week, I hated this monitor. Sure, the picture quality is really great but I didn't like anything else about it. It even has a power block that you have to plug in to your outlet. And don't forget the sound/speakers. Maybe I was expecting too much out of it since I did have a PC, Xbox One X and PS4 Pro hooked up to it but my 32" Samsung television has no problem handling all 3.
That adds one more annoyance. I'm sure someone will tell me to buy a HDMI splitter with remote but I expect a product this expensive to not need an add-on to be easy to use. You also have to go through those menus just to switch from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 to Display Port. Go ahead, tap the wrong button and it will mess your settings up and you have to do this every time you want to switch to say the Xbox One X instead of the PC. I really believe a remote would make a ton of difference in this monitor and better speakers would help too. I realized it didn't have a remote when I first started to switch between the PC and Xbox One X. My wife thought it was hilarious. I looked at the screen and said, "I have no idea how you change the input." Looked in the box, questioned my puppy about eating it then just accepted there's no remote. I sit about 30 inches away from the monitor, meaning, I'm not sitting right up at the desk it sits on. So, to change the settings/inputs, I have to get up and reach behind the monitor. Call that lazy if you will but I'm around 40 and work 8-12 hours a day. Meaning, maybe a kid, a teenager who likes changing settings and seeing the results, would be perfectly fine with this monitor. But I can't say I am. Luckily, I kept my Samsung television and just hooked it back up for the meantime. It's not capable of the picture quality of this monitor but it does everything else better and much easier. Not to mention, it was only half the price of this monitor. I can't justify the price for what I would call a 25% improvement in picture quality with a complete drop-off in functionality.
Last, I will recommend this monitor, as long as you're not bothered by the parts that annoyed me. It's very well made, the stand is excellent, very easy to attach, the monitor can be raised and lowered on the stand, tilted, rotated. As said the picture quality is excellent too. Overall, it's why I gave it 4 stars. It's just not for me. I don't think the features ratings show on reviews, so here's what I gave this monitor. A 5 star out of 5 on picture quality. A 3 star out of 5 for gaming, others will also mention its response rate not being that great in fast-paced video games. A 2 out of 5 for value for money. I explained that above when talking about my Samsung television doing everything better for half the price.
PIP mode supported.
HDMI 2.0 - good when used with HDCP. Two ports.
HDCP 2.2 - works with my 4k BluRay player & Xbox 1S.
HDR10 - great looking video.
Size - 32". Good size, not too big.
4K - looks great, even with old games. Scales and adjusts nicely to old resolutions.
Freesync on both HDMI & DisplayPort.
VESA Mounting. I installed it Monitor Stand.
Sound output to external speakers.
Price is great, compared to G-Sync monitors!
1. ViewSplit software free download at their web site:
a. The free ViewSplit software from ViewSonic is not compatible with Windows recommended Scaling. If it is run at 100% scaling at normal resolution (3840x2160), all is good. IF you "Scale" the screen, it does not function properly (125% increase or larger). Windows 10 default/recommended scale is 150%. Change it to 100% if you want to use ViewSplit.
b. While Viewsplit is good, it is missing a "key" setting - 3 full vertical windows side by side.
2. Five (5) watt speakers sound tinny.
Jan 15, 2019 - Nvidia released driver version 417.71, which makes G-Sync compatible with freesync monitors using Display Port (only).
I must have been lucky because I have zero dead pixels in my screen. I also have no issues with flickering, or glare.
My only recommendation is to be patient with the menu. It's a bit of a learning curve to switch between inputs manually, and editing settings. However, once you have it like you have it, it's absolutely perfect.
I would have liked Viewsonic to implement just a "source" button for easy input management since that's my only issue. However, the inputs will continuously cycle until it finds an active one and will fall asleep if none are active to conserve power.
Highly recommended. I expect to purchase a second one for dual monitors in the future.
I will update this if I run into any issues but considering it's been over two months, I'm very confident there will be no buyers remorse with this purchase. Go for it! Why are you still reading this?

It's a great price for mid range 4k gaming(60mhz vs 144mhz). Take note, if you have anything below a GTX1080 ti, you really can't max out your settings and will suffer from frame rate drops, so a mid range card will run fine at 60mhz. It will take some playing around with game settings to achieve a sharp looking picture.
The monitor is really bright, adjusting it doesn't really fix the problem either as the front screen, can feel quite warm after a proper gaming session(4-5 hours). The quality is cheap black plastic but looks fine - great full screen to take advantage of the 31.5" screen.It's power hungry @50 watts, so make sure you have a strong enough power supply - I am using 650 GQ.
Overall, for the price - its a great monitor and has USB built in to plug in any devices, or RGB lights directly into the monitor.
My original 2-stars review:
I bought this mostly for coding and gaming so I did not necessarily need something with perfect color and was not expecting that on a VA panel. However, getting the color on this to be somewhat decent is next to impossible, if I adjust the image to have a decent contrast, I get posterization and overall awful colors. This is so behind what I have on my old VX2433WM (which sits next to it). The contrast distortion due to angle (typical on VA I know) is very annoying when sitting close to it (about 20" in my setup). Playing a game with dark scheme or coding on a dark IDE is outright bad. I can't recommend it. Sorry, Viewsonic, this is my fourth monitor from you and the first time I don't like it. Being disappointed around 200$ would be "meh", at 800$, that's sad.
Bildqualität ist OK, die 240hz sind toll, läuft alles flüssig.
ABER, der Monitor fiept, und zwar relativ laut.
Wenn man dauerhaft ein Headset auf hat ist das vielleicht ertragbar, aber für mich, ich habe eine Hifi-Anlage angeschlossen und sobald es auch nur eine kleine Feuerpause gibt, oder ich mal keine Musik höre / am zocken bin, dann hört man den Monitor.
Habe mir gedacht ok, scheint ein Produktionsfehler zu sein und lasse Ihn mir ersetzen.
Der zweite Monitor, genau das selbe fiepen.
Ich habe alle Einstellungen durchprobiert, Anschlusskabel gewechselt, die komplette Hinterseite abgedeckt, der Monitor fiept trotzdem.
Scheinbar kein Produktionsfehler, sondern mangelnde Qualität.
