The first 2 ms monitors were announced in 2005 and since then we have not heard much. Now ViewSonic has a 1 ms monitor ready for market launch. It’s the 27-inch VX2739wm.
ViewSonic VX2739wm is the first monitor in the world with a 1 ms response time. That sounds impressive but we also have to remember that response time on paper and in reality is not the same. 1 ms is a measurement of the fastest color transition.
Nevertheless, VX2739wm looks like a nice darling for gamers. The 27-inch monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels in 16:9 aspect ratio, 1 ms (g2g) response time, 1200:1 contrast ratio and 170/160 viewing angles. The monitor features a TN panel.
You can connect VX2739wm with DVI, HDMI or D-SUB. The frame is made from black, glossy plastic and the stand allows you to tilt the monitor.
The very fast response time is a result of an aggressive RTC (Overdrive circuit) technology. ViewSonic also provides advanced settings for this RTC function enabling the user to control the overshoot and undershoot.
ViewSonic VX2739wm is available now priced at $349 USD. See www.viewsonic.com for more information.
