ViewSonic is back
We all know that ViewSonic has been far behind when it comes to Monitors. ASUS, Zowie, LG, Alienware, and Dell have been on top from the past few years. ViewSonic did have their best moments with the XG series, that went on to become of the best 144hz monitors. The XG2401 was best 144hz, it had better features comparing its rival ASUS VG248QE and BenQ Zowie XL2411P. Well, XG2401 took the upper hand because of Free sync, good control panel, and most importantly its physical appearance, which was very solid.
What is Elite?
ViewSonic has now entered the gaming monitors, with a new name called Viewsonic Elite. The ViewSonic Elite will feature numerous gaming monitors, that are going to set a good standard in the coming future.
This new particular model Viewsonic Elite XG270QG is first in the series. It has very positive feedback and it is the best gaming monitor. ViewSonic Eltie XG270QG features a 27-inch display along 1ms response time. It has 1440p resolution and 144hz refresh rate which can be overclocked to (165Hz).
Resolution & Technology
The monitor actually comes with 165Hz equipped. XG270QG Features GSYNC. Here comes the most interesting part. ViewSonic Elite XG270QG is equipped with IPS Nano Color Elite Design. If you don’t know what IPS Nano Color is, well it is a bit upgrade over normal IPS Displays. The colours are more vibrant, much sharper and better. If you play on an IPS Nano for a long time, you will notice the huge difference.
Design & Features
ViewSonic XG270QG also has a very sleek Frameless design. There are three-sided ultra-thin bezels, that could potentially help you have a better experience with multiple monitors. People often complain that Gaming Monitors have thick edges and that Multi-Monitor setup is impossible, well ViewSonic has solved this.
Furthermore, Like I said ViewSonic Elite is typically aimed at gamers. Thus, Viewsonic has also introduced RGB Strip underneath & and behind Monitor. RGB lighting in the monitor does sound weird, however, this looks very decent on front and back. Additionally, you can also sync it with the rest of your system RGB colors through Thermaltake RGB Plus Software.
Another premium feature from ViewSonic XG270QG is that it has side Shields. This can help you focus on your monitor by drawing borders on the edges. This is strictly for those who are very competitive in Online games. The Shields also allow you to avoid looking at things going behind monitor, hence increasing your focus. Lan’s tournaments will also find this helpful because players can avoid looking at others around them. These shields are completely removable, thus don’t worry if they are not in your best interest.
Mouse Bungie & Headphone Stand
Furthermore, it has a mouse anker that is a game-changing feature here. You don’t need a mouse Bungie because this Anker acts like one. The anker holds the wire tight for you, avoiding cable getting stuck here and there. One more thing that ViewSonic XG270QG got right is the headphone stand. The LED Features a headphone stand that is placed on the left side of your monitor. It is very convenient to use, because of its placement.
Monitor Base & Control Panel
Additionally, ViewSonic has always had a positive reputation regarding its monitor base. XG270QG features an aluminum base that is very solid, and there is nothing to worry about. The monitor weight distribution is equal from all sides, and it does not move easily. Lastly, it has a very nice control panel that features several gaming modes, monitor options and much more. Additionally, XG270QG can be rotated fully to a vertical view, this could help those that plan multiple monitors setup. I’ve only written about the main features that prove XG270QG is the Best Gaming monitor available.
