New 27" 1440p monitor VX2758-2KP-MHD

 With the falling prices of monitors and the aging small 20" 1680x1050 LCD that I was using I decided it was time for an upgrade.

The Search

The types and models I was looking at were

  • 24" 1080p 144Hz (6bit + 2 dithering)
    • AOC 24G2 ~179.99
    • Viewsonic XG2405 ~179.99
  • 24" 1200p 75Hz
    •  Asus Proart PA248QV ~199.99
  • 27" 1440p 144Hz (8bit + 2 dithering)
    • Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD ~219.99
    • LG 27GL850-B ~346.99

 The prices that I listed above are the lowest that I have seen. I went with the Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD due to the increased resolution and screen real estate over a 24" for the relatively small sum of $40 especially since the prices on the 24" monitors were generally higher at the time.


  • Monitor assembled easy
  • No dead pixels
  • Good color reproduction
  • Freesync support with up to 144Hz
  • OSD does not work without input
    • doesn't allow you to change inputs
    • is somewhat remedied by it auto selecting the active input
  • OSD uses the older style non-joystick style button inputs
  • Monitor occasionally does not register displayport input and requires a power cord unplug to fix
  • Driver install does not work properly (see below)
Known downsides before purchase and other thoughts
  • No height adjustment, but I did not need this particular feature and is not expected at this price point
  • 1ms MPRT/3ms GTG pixel response is a bit of an exaggeration and would only happen at highest overdrive setting which comes with lots of inverse ghosting between 60-120Hz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukKev6cPZhY
  • Buttons are on the right side, so not optimal for dual side by side monitors as one monitor will always have its buttons blocked
