A Damn Fine Professional-Grade 4K Monitor: With beautiful colors and IQ, the ViewSonic VP2780-4K is definitely something worth considering if you're in the market for a pro-grade monitor.
Height Adjustable Stand: The stand that ViewSonic has used on the VP2780-4K is great, with it being height adjustable - but the inclusion of putting it into portrait goes a long way, especially in the professional market.
Plenty of Connectivity: With plenty of USB 3.0 ports, a slew of HDMI and DisplayPort connections, the ViewSonic VP2780-4K has it in spades.
A Little on the Expensive Side: At $699, the ViewSonic VP2780-4K isn't cheap - but it's not meant to be. It's a professional-orientated monitor, but it's hard to choose this over offerings from Dell and Samsung, for example.
With a beautiful image and near perfect colors, sub 10ms input lag for gamers and a great height adjustable stand with portrait abilities, the ViewSonic VP2780-4K is a great monitor. It has its specific market, which has gamers looking away.
ViewSonic has a much better than average IPS-based 4K monitor on its hands, where it can fight against the likes of Dell and Samsung - and come out on top, which is a huge thing for ViewSonic. The only thing that some of its competitors have over the VP2780-4K is that ViewSonic hasn't provided 100% Adobe RGB coverage - so if you need this, walk away from the ViewSonic VP2780-4K - if not, this could be your next purchase.
While the ViewSonic VP2780-4K is expensive, it is easily justified if you're looking at a monitor that ticks all the right boxes. We have a 4K-capable screen with an IPS panel, fairly decent gaming abilities, and a $699 price. If you can swallow that pill, ViewSonic might actually surprise you with the VP2780-4K.
For normal office work and casual users, you're not going to be interested - but those who have been searching for a great professional-grade monitor might feel at home with the ViewSonic VP2780-4K.
