ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED review

£245 inc VAT

Manufacturer: ViewSonic

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The VX2753mh certainly works well for video playback, with LED backlighting that produces a bright and bold image, and quite respectable sound from the built-in speakers.

ViewSonic’s rather jargon-heavy manual makes it clear that the VX2753mh-LED is very much intended as a conventional computer monitor. The large 27-inch screen produces a bright, sharp image and would certainly work well as an external monitor for a laptop or Mac mini.

It might even tempt a few Mac Pro users who don’t want to fork out almost $1000 for the outrageously expensive Apple Thunderbolt Display. The CD bundled with the monitor includes a calibration profile for use with Apple’s ColorSync software, so it’s not out of the question that you could use it for newsletter or magazine layout work.

Other aspects of the monitor’s design suggest that ViewSonic has its eye on more casual users too. The neat, slimline design wouldn’t look out of place in your bedroom or study, and a quick look at the back of the monitor reveals that the VX2753mh has two HDMI connectors, rather than just one HDMI and one DVI. That obviously gives you the option of hooking up a DVD player or an iPad alongside your main Mac. We were also glad to see that ViewSonic includes a full set of HDMI, VGA and audio cables in the box to help you get started. However, you'll need to buy additional adapters (such as Mini DisplayPort to VGA, Mini DVI to VGA Adapter) to connect to a Mac.

The VX2753mh certainly works well for video playback, with LED backlighting that produces a bright and bold image, and quite respectable sound from the built-in speakers.

Buying Advice

Our only complaint was that the onscreen controls are a bit fiddly. Instead of providing simple presets for tasks such as watching films or playing games, the monitor makes you wade through some tedious menu windows in order to adjust the individual RGB settings yourself. There aren’t many control buttons on the monitor either, so a simple task such as adjusting the volume means you have to start fiddling with the onscreen menus once more.
