There’s a growing array of screens combining the plentiful ‘4K’ UHD resolution with a high refresh rate. The ViewSonic VX2882-4KP is an additional offering in this space, with HDMI 2.1 included to allow a ‘4K’ UHD signal at 120Hz to be used on the Xbox Series X and PS5. The screen has a simple home-office design. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus a hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by buttons on the underside of the bottom bezel, towards the right side.

A home-office design

The monitor adopts a 28″ 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) IPS-type panel, likely an Innolux AAS (Azimuthal Anchoring Switch) part. A 150Hz refresh rate is supported alongside Adaptive-Sync – including AMD FreeSync Premium with a 48 – 150Hz VRR range plus LFC. A matte anti-glare screen surface is included, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio and 178°/178° viewing angles are specified. Interestingly, the manufacturer currently specifies 8-bit colour (via 6-bit + FRC) – though that would be very unusual. The panel likely used here is an 10-bit (via 8-bit + FRC) part. A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 300 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 90% DCI-P3 colour space coverage. The monitor responds to HDR10 content, but falls short of the most basic VESA DisplayHDR certification level. It allows 10-bit colour processing to be used and the reasonably generous colour gamut to be put to good use, but falls short on the brightness side and doesn’t require local dimming to enhance contrast.

A 1ms grey to grey response time is specified (pinch of salt required) alongside a 1ms MPRT response time with the strobe backlight mode active. The stand attaches centrally using a quick-release mechanism and can be removed to reveal 75 x 75mm VESA holes for alternative mounting. The included stand is fully adjustable, including 130mm (5.12 inches) height adjustment and pivot into portrait. The ports face downwards and include; DC power input (external ‘power brick’), 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, 2 DP 1.4 ports, USB-C (~15-18W PD assumed, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), a 3.5mm headphone jack and 2 USB 3.2 ports plus upstream. 2 x 2W speakers are included for basic sound output.
