The 2560 x 1440 resolution and 27″ screen size is a popular choice for many users for both home and office use. The ViewSonic VP2768a (not to be confused with the older model without the ‘a’) is one such offering, a member of the ‘ColorPro’ line focused on colour-critical workloads. The monitor features a ‘4-sided borderless’ design, or dual-stage as we prefer to call it. This includes a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen plus a slender hard plastic outer component. The bezel appears uniformly slender at all sides, including at the bottom which is usually quite a bit chunkier than with this model. The OSD (On Screen Display) controls are located at the rear of the monitor, running vertically down the right side as viewed from the front. A joystick is included for intuitive navigation, alongside a series of buttons.

Very slender bezels on all sides
