A convincing HDR (High Dynamic Range) experience is often sought but rarely achieved – it’s usually a meaningless ‘buzz phrase’ slapped onto a monitor for marketing purposes. The ViewSonic VX2722-4K-PRO aims to offer a compelling and dynamic HDR experience, with a 576-zone Mini LED backlight solution. Designed with both PC and console users in mind, it also features HDMI 2.1. This provides a ‘4K’ UHD @120Hz signal plus VRR support for devices including the Xbox Series X and PS5. The monitor includes a fairly slender matte black penguin-foot stand base with metallic-look dark red element joining it to the neck. The top and side bezels are dual-stage with slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen, plus thin hard plastic outer part. The (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear, towards the right side as viewed from the front.
A 27″ 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) IPS-type panel is employed, with the AUO M270QAN07 family AHVA panels being the most likely candidates. A 144Hz refresh rate is supported alongside Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync with 48 – 144Hz VRR range plus LFC assumed. A light to very light matte anti-glare screen surface is used with other aspects of note including a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) colour support. The monitor is factory calibrated with DeltaE ≤2 specified. A flicker-free QD Mini LED backlight delivers a 400 cd/m² (1000 cd/m² HDR peak) typical maximum luminance and 99% Adobe RGB (95% DCI-P3) gamut coverage. The monitor responds to HDR10 content at the VESA DisplayHDR 1000 level, putting the backlight to good use for a dynamic experience. With good peak brightness and local dimming employed, alongside 10-bit colour support and a generous colour gamut suitable for HDR content.
Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included to promote a more relaxing viewing experience. A 5ms grey to grey response time is (relatively conservatively) specified alongside a 1ms MPRT response time, using the included strobe backlight mode. As usual, pay little attention to these values. The stand attaches to the screen centrally, with VESA 100 x 100mm support included. This stand includes full adjustability, including limited height adjustment (90mm or 3.54 inches) and pivot into portrait. The ports face downwards and include; DC power input (external ‘power brick’), 2 USB 3.0 ports (plus Type-B upstream), USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode), DP 1.4 (with DSC), 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website (Chinese, requires translation). The monitor is listed on the Chinese market for the equivalent of ~$730 USD – further confirmed details on price and availability in regions including the US still to come.
