02/18/20 Update: I finally got a "good" one from a different production batch. This one has no flashlighting spots but it does have some back light bleed I'm the lower left corner but it's at a level I can live with. It is crazy that I had to go through so many to find one I could keep but I'm finally happy. It's been working great and I'm looking forward to what they do with the lighting software they currently have in beta. Recommend the monitor if you can snag a good one. Colors are vibrant and motion is very good! Viewing angles are what you'd expect from an IPS so good but you will notice a lower than average contrast.
The only issue I have with it is that blacks are so dark. On black level adjustment at 2.0 gamma, the 1-4 boxes are indiscernible. Going to 1.8 gamma would correct that, but everything appears more washed out. Since my eyes are light sensitive, I keep the panel darker than most I think. Probably not an issue for most.
Freesync seems to work smoother with AMD cards than NVidia at lower frame rates. (Edit 7/18/2019: Thought it didn't work with nvidia cards. But I was confused by the difference gsync and gsync compatible in Nvidia control panel. With freesync monitors, you have to click the checkbox below in the gsync settings to actually get the gsync setting to apply. So user issue. It does work smoother with AMD though.). Like many VA Freesync/Gsync monitors, this one does flicker on some loading screens, or when some dialogs are displayed.
Part of original review: The first monitor showed up with zero dead pixels, then developed one or two over the course of the first 1.5 days of usage. The second monitor had two dead right of the box and the box is a bit damaged. A bit disappointing. ViewSonic support from comments exchanged it for a new monitor, which has zero pixels, and is great. At this point, not sure I would get a monitor again through Amazon. As the box for the second monitor had some damage.
8/20/2019: Starting with driver 436.02, nvidia can now set 10-bit color for this monitor.
10/23/2019: The monitor is excellent for desktop and watching movies. For gaming, too many games flicker on load screens and sometimes during normal game play. The whole screen flickers when moving over some UI elements in a few games. I would not buy the monitor given my gaming experience.
But monitor technology was changing and soon enough 120hz and 144hz panels came out. I still wanted to play at a high competitive level in Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, but unfortunately at the time the lowest input lag 144hz monitors were all TN panels. So I had to give up any hobbyist graphic design work. But the BenQ monitors I owned were excellent for CS:GO and using Blur Busters' BENQ Utility tool, you could control how much strobing and crosstalk was displayed on your monitor. The only trade-off is the more strobing at a higher refresh rate, the less luminance the panel emits.
Earlier this year I purchased an LG 27GK750F-B 27" 240hz panel. While this wasn't a huge leap from 60hz to 144hz, it was still enough to be noticeable. While the panel itself had decent color reproduction and no dead pixels, the firmware was broken. You had to download a Custom Resolution Utility application in order to "overclock" the monitor to force it into the correct refresh rate. While this monitor for the most part ran well at 240hz with Motion Blur Reduction turned on, there would be black artifacts from the monitor that would come up from time to time, or microstuttering, and so forth. It seemed that the frametimes could not match up with the display output which would cause the stuttering to occur sporadically. Needlessly to say it was an extremely frustrating experience. There were some "workarounds" to try to keep it stable for awhile before it would act up again. LG never bothered to issue a firmware update after repeated requests on their company's message board.
So I decided to never purchase an LG brand monitor again after the lack of firmware support and pretty much delivering a monitor that didn't function as advertised.
But then I heard about these 240hz IPS monitors on the horizon. I usually frequent the Blur Busters website for the best gaming monitor recommendations. And the owner of the site posted he had calibrated the motion blur reduction of this new ViewSonic panel, and that the strobing at 120hz reminded him of the motion clarity and color of the holy grail of CRT monitors: the Sony GDM FW900.
I owned the Sony GDM FW900 about 5 years ago and it truly deserved the reputation as being the best CRT monitor ever made. (Only the Artisan eclipses it by a hair with photography use). So to hear about an IPS panel that can look as good with the motion clarity of the FW900 had me very excited.
And yep I can say, while not exactly as bright as the FW900 in blur reduction mode (there will be more brightness in the next firmware version I am told), nor having those inky blacks (there is that IPS glow) it is the closest thing I'll get to that CRT in an LCD. Just superb. I no longer miss having the FW900 which is an incredible achievement. For purists, yes this is still an LCD panel and there is just something about the way CRTs present an image that even the highest end LCDs can't match. It is a total shame CRTs were killed off. However I think with the XG270, with the blur reduction enabled, and 99% sRGB/IPS colors, it considerably closes the gap. The FW900 is dead, long live the FW900!
The motion blur reduction in 240hz (it's 241hz in Windows), while there is crosstalk at the bottom, manages to run without a hiccup playing CS:GO, Rocket League, Overwatch, etc. (all games can be set at 240FPS or higher). I am not detecting any input lag when I'm playing CS:GO, in fact it might even be faster than the LG panel I bought earlier. There's no microstuttering or tearing to be had. (I have a RTX2080Ti card and my CPU is i9-9900k.)
The G-Sync option is amazing and here you obviously get much more brightness than you do the motion blur reduction. I actually find G-Sync with Ultra low latency and VSYNC enabled to be pretty good with CS:GO. If you really want to shave off those miliseconds, obviously keep the G-Sync off but I might actually stick with it. For other games that aren't CS:GO, I will probably use G-SYNC and maybe dial down the refresh rate to 120hz since it's difficult for most modern games to hit 240FPS consistently.
The sRGB color temperature setting in the OSD provides the best preset colors IMO. Of course you can adjust it as you wish.
Also the monitor and stand feel very well built, doesn't seem cheap.
TL;DR - Time to throw away your TN panels and upgrade to an IPS panel if you want both motion clarity and color accuracy. I could not be happier. This appeals to me as a serious competitive CS:GO player who occasionally does ESEA to regular casual games. I love having the flexibility of having settings for competitive use and for eyecandy, where I couldn't get that with my BenQ panels.
Great job ViewSonic!

- great, nearly CRT level, backlight strobbing (PureXP/ULMB) at and under 119hz, and no buzzing
- pics of PureXP: 100hz https://imgur.com/a/d1yIufe and 119hz https://imgur.com/a/0h88JxS
- instant one button on/off for PureXP (if you configure the quick access button)
- great IPS viewing angles and colors
- adaptive sync, no tearing or stutter, great for games that can't run at 100+ fps
- can turn off the power button led
- height, tilt, rotate adjustments
- fast turn on, resolution change (2.5s)
- noticeable backlight bleeding in lower right when the picture is black (if I squeeze the frame a bit it goes away, a clamp might work)
- some crosstalk in strobbing mode (ULMB), not CRT perfect, and very bad at 144hz and 240hz
- PureXP firmware not out yet (no levels, only on/off)
- 240hz (I don't use it, since I prefer vsync 120hz)
- can't combine adaptive sync with PureXP
- HDR (don't have any content to test it)
- slim bezel (but half a centimeter around the screen is unused, like a black frame)
- chroma leds in the back, I don't use them
- flashable firmware capability, usb slots
- no DVI input
- elite hood side panels
Overall, a great improvement over my old VG278H TN monitor.
Waiting for microled monitors in the future.
Is ot better than my 60£ 60hz monitor? Yes it is.
Is it 5 times better? Not at all.
The image quality is actually pretty decent considering the panel type. Once the proper OSD tweaks have been made the colours are accurate and the contrast is quite respectable with a good amount of brightness. I wouldn't buy this if you do colour accurate work as it's not suitable for it. Viewing angles aren't brilliant but again, it's TN, they're manageable - not really an issue if facing it head on. The RGB lights on the rear of the display are very weak, you'd be better off buying proper bias lighting if you want that effect. Personally, I just keep them off as I find them really gaudy on top of being practically useless.
Where this monitor really shines though, is for gaming. The pixel response times are very well tuned resulting in a minimum amount of motion blur at 144Hz using the Faster overdrive setting. There's no strobing technology unfortunately, but it's not that big of a deal, it would have been nice to have, though. There are 5 levels of overdrive; Standard can be ignored, Fast is pretty good, Faster is (in my opinion) the best, Ultra Fast introduces a bit of overshoot and Fastest is unusable as the overshoot is far too distracting. I have no way to accurately measure input lag but it feels instant, so no worries there, and using Freesync on my RX 5700 XT is buttery smooth with not a tear in sight.
As a gaming monitor the XG240R excells where it matters. This is a very fast display. If speed is your top priority the only worthy upgrade would be a 240Hz monitor, though they generally are ~£100-200 more expensive and are geared towards the ultra-competitive type of gamer. The XG240R, in terms of price-to-performance, is a real winner if you can look past the usual TN issues such as the poor viewing angles and less vibrant colours compared to an IPS display.
All in all I'm very happy with my purchase. Would recommend.
Linked via HDMI to my MacBook I couldn’t get it to run full resolution. Linked to my PC with DisplayPort cable it runs full resolution and I’m happy with the picture.
I found an arm that takes the weight, the stand that comes with it is good but takes a lot of space and won’t go as high as I wanted.
Lots of settings but not that intuitive to use. The HDR mode isn’t good but not really needed as colour is good anyway.
100hz is fine for flight sim but maybe a little slow for other games.
This monitor was the perfect middle ground between the Dell 3220DGF and the Samsung Odyssey G7 in terms of price point and performance. It has speakers and 550 nits brightness, both of which the Dell does not have.
It also does not suffer from adaptive sync flicker that the Samsung display suffers from at lower frame-rates due to its extreme 240Hz refresh rate and 60Hz Low Frame-Rate Compensation (LFC) threshold – the ViewSonic LFC kicks in below ~48-52Hz so you will only see brightness flickering on games that run at around 48-52 FPS and have high FPS variance (i.e. games which are CPU bound and constantly fluctuating between 40 FPS and 60 FPS). If you encounter adaptive sync flicker then you can always just disable it and use V-Sync instead, or try lowering the display brightness.
This display offers fantastic dynamic range and TV quality speakers. It is also has the goldilocks specs of 27" display (larger than expected in person!) and 2560x1440 @ 165Hz resolution. I absolutely recommend it for the £500 price.
