For the past two weeks or so, I've been using ViewSonic's XG2703-GS monitor: a 27-inch display with a native resolution of 2560x1440 and refresh rate of 165Hz - one of the highest you can get right now on a 1440p panel.
ViewSonic hasn't really been well known in the gaming monitor world, especially up against the likes of ASUS, Acer, and BenQ - but they are a gem when you use one. The NVIDIA G-Sync-capable XG2703-GS is one of the best I've used so far, and its massive 165Hz refresh rate feels buttery smooth.
Is there a difference between 144Hz and 165Hz? Well, I'll have to spill those beans later on in the article.
