I used the ViewSonic VX2880ml for around two weeks for the review, as my main monitor for work, as well as some gaming when I could fit it in.
This is what I'm running:
- CPU: Intel Core i7 4930K processor w/Corsair H100i cooler (stock clocks)
- Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition
- RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro of 2400MHz DDR3
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (reference) in SLI
- Storage: 240GB SanDisk Extreme II and 480GB SanDisk Extreme II
- Chassis: InWin X-Frame Limited Edition
- PSU: Corsair AX1200i digital PSU
- Software: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- Drivers: GeForce 340.43
We'd like to thank all of our partners for their support, as this couldn't be possible without NVIDIA, ASUS, Corsair, SanDisk, or InWin. Without them, we wouldn't have the hardware here to test today, so I'd like to thank them all for providing us with the hardware here in my lab.
One of the best features of the VX2880ml is the DisplayPort daisy chaining ability, which allows for multiple monitors to be daisy-chained together into the single DisplayPort output of your PC. This is great for those who only have a single DP out, but with more and more GPUs - such as the GTX 980s we used in our testing - coming with multiple DP outputs, it's not such a big seller.
Two daisy-chained displays can be used, with a maximum supported resolution of 2560x1440 each. If you wanted to have four additional displays daisy-chained, they have a maximum supported resolution of 1920x1080 each.
Above, we have the stand, which is very sturdy for the monitor to be screwed into.
Here we have the monitor on its stand, taking a look at it from behind.
Once again with a shot of the entire monitor, on its stand from behind.
Moving onto the touch-operated users controls on the front, we have five buttons. From left to right, we have '1' which toggles the main on-screen menu, '2' which goes through your display inputs, the center button is the power on/off button, while the down and up arrows on the right brings up some other options.
Down will show the Blue light filter adjustment, while pressing Up opens up the ViewMode menu. If you're in the on-screen menu and press '1', the arrow pads turn into menu navigation controls, while '2' turns into the item select control. When you're in the menus themselves, '1' acts as the 'exit' button. It's confusing, but it works well once you've tinkered around with it for a bit.
