Viewsonic has been a known and respected name in the monitor domain and I had the pleasure to use their wide-gamut VP2785-4K monitor for a month so I noted a few things after rigorous use.
When you are all up for creating content, 4K is the resolution of choice. This one is a thin-bezel 27-inch monitor with a high-quality IPS panel. It is a prime-pick monitor for photographers, video-editors, packing great color accuracy and calibration. There is absolutely no bleeding when viewing a dark screen at typical brightness levels.
The monitor has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, a brightness of 350 cd/m², 99 per cent AdobeRGB, and 96% DCI-P3 color coverage making it ideal for digital cinema content and photography.
The colors came out to be nice and punchy and I got to taste some rich and vibrant colors. However, when you are sitting a few feet away from the monitor, the angle to the corners appear brighter. The good thing is, it’s only visible when you are looking for it.
Viewsonic offers a nice utility and a well-rounded professional monitor with this one. The bezel around the screen is just a thin 1mm line, with a 1.5cm panel along the bottom to frame the control buttons and ambient light sensor. There is also an automatic brightness adjustment feature to make working more comfortable as lights change. It also offers a color uniformity feature that intends to keeps colors consistent across the screen. The frameless design provides a seamless viewing experience in a multi-monitor setup.
The mount is simple, sturdy, and ergonomically friendly, providing height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustment. Connections include four USB 3 ports, one USB-C port, two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort and mini-DisplayPort inputs, and two 3.5mm audio jacks (one audio-in and one audio-out). It provides Windows and Mac OS system users with user-friendly management of 60W power charging, large-quantity data transmission, and video display.
The monitor is capable of displaying multiple sources at once. So if you have a computer plugged into the Display Port, you could also plug in your TV box or another laptop using HDMI, mini-display or USB-C and then have all sources shown on the monitor. You can also have the same source displayed twice but each with a different profile. For example, one could be shown in AdobeRGB and the other would use the iPhone color profile. This functionality allows photographers and designers to simultaneously view and edit images while using separate color settings, virtually combining the work of two monitors into one.
The screen can also be pivoted to 90 degrees for photographers and editors to work in portrait orientation. Auto Pivot mode allows photos to automatically adjust to the screen’s orientation when pivoted.
The VP2785-4K offers 4K UHD resolution to its 27-inch screen, for a high pixel density of 163 pixels per inch.
Viewsonic VP2785 cost around Rs 1,14,300 and can be discounted at a much lower price on some 3rd party platforms, and you can consider buying it to match neatly with your workflow and needs.
