The all-new ViewSonic VP2768 is a 27-inch 2K monitor which aims to entice editors and designers with its accurate colors without the added premium. Instead of going for a wide gamut screen, the company included a lot of useful features with the factory calibrated IPS display. The ViewSonic VP2768 promises its buyers the reliability and stability of its output for the color-critical performance packed into a well-designed package.

Design and Features

The ViewSonic VP2768 comes in an all-black plastic exterior with a matte texture making it reflect its all-business nature with subtlety. The four sides do not have bezels; instead, there are 2mm borders on the edges. There are 2mm inner panel edges which are visible when the screen is in use, but these do not present a distraction during usage.

The company achieved this minimalist design by not adding a logo or branding on the product, which in our opinion, is a positive consideration. This gives the device an overall clean look which should sit well with professionals and just about any user who doesn’t prefer gaudy, over designed appearances.

The OSD buttons are all located on the rear accessible from the front via the right side. Even the I/O ports are neatly laid out in a down firing position, making cable connections easy to manage. With the ViewSonic VP2768, you get a wide array of video-in options which include DisplayPort 1.2, Mini DP 1.2, DP Out, two HDMI slots, and five USB 3.0 receptacles.

We like the inclusion of the DP Out connector since it allows users to utilize multiple ViewSonic VP2768s for a wider digital workspace. There are no speakers on the ViewSonic VP2768, but it still includes a 3.5mm jack for audio pass through. A weak pair wouldn’t be missed by most users, but adding it would have increased the value ratio of this model.

The ViewSonic VP2768 comes compatible with VESA 100 x 100 adaptors, but the included stand offsets the need for an additional armature. The superb ergonomics for the robust mechanism can adjust height, tilt, swivel, or even pivot the screen. Getting a perfect view of the display is easy as peas, but flush or wall mounting the thin cabinet isn’t a bad idea as well.
