ORIGINAL:Purchased this a week ago. TBH this is my first 144hz monitor. I owned a Benq 24in but that was only running at standard refresh albeit a faster gtg of 1ms since it was TN, just like this monitor.
My settings were: color: usercolor (left all at 100 R,G,B) viewmode: normal, response time: advanced, low input lag: ultrafast, brightness 35, contrast 55, sharpness 75, black stabilization 5, smartsync off, amd freesync off, advanced dcr 0, dynamic contract unchecked, ecomode standard, bluelight filter 100 (this is default- its supposed to be 0 but the OSD writes it as 100, when you move it to lower values then bluelight filter is gonna be used. essentially 100 means its Off. Weird right?!)
I connected this monitor to drive my Asus G751JY via mini displayport/thunderbolt port to full size DP in the monitor to support the max refresh of 144hz. I was really curious how it would play since most games I run on my laptop is able to exceed 60fps and would very much benefit this monitor's hz. True enough, I wasn't disappointed. I now wished I could have gone with the much powerful GT80 titan dual 980m during that time but that one would further cost me my other arm *sigh*.
I played witcher 3, far cry 4, crysis 3, dota 2, metro last light, bioshock infinite, middle earth SOM, madmax and this monitor makes those games run smoother. I can objectively observe that even if the FPS say for example Witcher 3 on my laptops native ips display is running 50 and obviously it runs 50 too on the monitor but somehow it made the experience much smoother and quite faster. Maybe (well highly likely) that the gtg response time of 1ms coupled with the very fast 144hz made the experience faster in my eyes. It's like the monitor is somehow cheating and giving my laptop an extra kick in horsepower wherein reality its just displaying the exact amount of FPS on the laptops display. Frankly, i didn't expect that to happen and I was relatively surprised of the monitors ability to provide me the perceived smoothness in game. Further, I have yet to try the freesync feature since obviously my laptop is running an nvidia 980m. I'll update this review once I get my hands on one.
For the price I paid of $383 plus taxes vs msrp of $459 it is certainly a must buy! comparing prices to similar products and seeing this monitor was just recently launched in Jan. 2016. It incorporates the newest technologies of a TN panel might have and oh boy don't get me started on the ports. It has 2 usb 3.0 and another 2 usb 2.0 hows that for good measure? 2 HDMIs and 2 Displayport (1 is mini btw) and a 3.5mm audiojack. Viewsonic really thought of everything. Stand is able to swivel, pivot, rotate with height adjust. cable organizer and a little headphone hanger at the rear. All that's left is the kitchen sink.
As a quick backstory: I had a 60hz TN gaming monitor with a R9 390. I wanted to ascend to 144hz and Freesync. So for around the same price, you can get either this monitor or the AOC G2460PF monitor (which is listed cheaper), which both satisfy the 144hz and Freesync conditions. Between those two monitors, there is really not much differences. Both have a full adjustable vesa mount stand, 144hz refresh rate, 1ms gtg response time, flicker-free lighting, AMD's Freesync technology, average quality OSD controls, included speakers, and other little features.
THE ONLY FEATURE the AOC has over the Viewsonic is the Freesync range of 30-144hz vs the 48-144hz. With my 390, I get 90+fps so I don't ever have to worry about the 48hz minimum Freesync range, so that doesn't really bother me.
What made me choose this monitor over the AOC came down to reviews that pointed out the better display colors (after calibration, kinda sucked at stock settings) and better quality control. A little more expensive, but worth it to me.
Now to list the PROS:
144hz Refresh Rate: You really have no idea how smooth it is over 60hz, until you switch back and forth between the two. Awesome for games too.
AMD Freesync: Seriously, I can't imagine playing games over 60fps and not have some sort of adaptive sync like Freesync or Gsync. On my R9 390, I usually push all my games anywhere from 90fps to over 144fps at the highest settings. So on older games that can play at 144fps, you can use v-sync, and newer games that can't go 144fps will have TEARING (which sucks!). But with that Freesync, don't ever have to worry about that no more. YOU MUST TURN ON DISPLAYPORT 1.2 in the monitor's Setup Menu for Freesync to fully work.
Adjustable stand: Coming from a stand that only allowed a very small angle adjustment, this stand rocks. Specifically the height adjustment and the stand base being able to swivel.
Non-PWM lighting: My old monitor also had it, and can't be considered a con. Apparently helps with eye strain.
Colors: Apparently this monitor has some pretty good colors after calibration and some of the best contrast levels among TN panels. Viewing angles are a con on all TN based panels, but I look at the monitor straight on, so not relevant to me. Also non-glare display.
THE ONLY CON:
As I mentioned above, the monitor has a minimum 48hz for Freesync, compared to the similar AOC monitor. But this is not relevant to me as I never go to that low of an fps in any of the games I play. The con is so minuscule for me that this product is still a five star rating and probably doesn't affect that many people's decisions.
My display settings: Contrast (55), Brightness (25), Color Adjust (User Color: R97, G97, B100), Sharpness (75), Dynamic Contrast (off), Eco Mode (Standard), Blue Light Filter (100), Viewmode (Standard), Smartsync (off), Freesync (on), Response Time (Advanced), Low Input Lag (Ultra Fast), Black Stabilization (4), Advanced DCR (0). Then I used Windows Calibrate Display Colors to lower the Gamma value to ~25% from the bottom, because it is way too high. Other than that, you can tweak it to whatever is most comfortable to you.
