Introduction

One of the latest displays from ViewSonic is the VP2780-4K, which is an IPS-based 4K monitor - but is it worth your money? Well, that's what we're here to find out. In a market filled with gaming displays, ViewSonic bucks the curve continuing to release a slew of displays in various markets.

The ViewSonic VP2780-4K could be of interest to the professional market, thanks to its 10-bit color - thanks to an 8-bit native panel with frame rate conversion. It doesn't sport the Adobe RGB gamut, but it does include a built-in input matrix that supports up to four simultaneous sources going into it - perfect for monitoring multiple camera feeds, and more.

So while we won't be grading it too much on its gaming performance, we'll look at it from a different perspective. Let's dive into the rest of the review!

Quick Specs

The ViewSonic VP2780-4K is a 27-inch 4K display with a native resolution of 3840x2160, a refresh rate of 60Hz, splashed onto an IPS-based panel for beautiful colors and viewing angles. We have 2 x DisplayPort, 2 x HDMI 1.4 (w/MHL), and 1 x HDMI 2.0 for display connectivity.

There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack on the display, as well as 4 x USB 3.0 ports to boot.

Availability & Price

ViewSonic has the VP2780-4K listed on Amazon for $699.99 right now, down from its list price of $1091 - when it launched a few months ago, it was hovering at around $900 - so $700 isn't too bad for what you're getting here.
