ViewSonic XG2700-4K Delivers Amazing Gaming Image Quality

With regards to its key specs, there are plenty of things to like about the ViewSonic XG2700-4K. To start, it has a native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 across a 27-inch panel (measured diagonally). Furthermore, it has a pixel density of 163-pixels-per-inch, which means images and text look really sharp. In fact, it is sharp enough to deliver impressively stunning detail, while not being so dense that you would have to force Windows to increase the size of the icons and text.

But when you do have to make use of Windows’ scaling feature, it does work well for the most part. As mentioned earlier, icons, text, and even graphics do look sharp. However, there are some third-party applications that don’t sit well with that so they will either look really tiny or quite blurry.

Image quality for the XG2700-4K, even when using the monitor in its factory settings, deliver an above average performance. It has an initial brightness of 341-nits, which is probably a bit too high for some so you might want to tone it down a bit.

Color quality, on the other hand, is only average. In fact, it doesn’t compare much to the quality of the colors brought about by some of Asus premium gaming monitors. However, this average level of color quality is only when the brightness settings are placed at a higher level. Tone it down to a moderate level and the color quality will become a lot better.

As mentioned earlier, this particular gaming monitor offers a lot of screen modes, and most of them are for gamers. There’s a first FPS mode, and a second one, then there’s even a MOBA option as well. When going for these options, it chooses the best settings depending on what type of game you’re playing, and for the most part, it handles every type of game you throw at it beautifully. But do take note that these settings will have mixed opinions as there might be some that do prefer the factory default settings for their games.

While it’s not the most impressive gaming monitor in today’s market, the ViewSonic XG2700-4K can still deliver an excellent overall experience. It has a 4K resolution panel that is bolstered even further with the AMD FreeSync technology built inside it.
