VIEWSONIC VX2757-MHD 27″ FreeSync Monitor Review

Posted August 2, 2016 by Josh Jackson in Monitors


Price at time of Review: $179.88 on Amazon, $184.99 on Newegg


Surprisingly Good Build, Picture, and Feature Quality for the Price, FreeSync at a Great Price, 27" at a Great Price. Did I mention the Price?


Built-in Speakers sound bad, No included DisplayPort cable for FreeSync
AMD users will certainly enjoy the benefits of FreeSync (With proper setup), but this is an ideal monitor for any gamer looking for a nice, affordable 27" monitor with good features.

How many of you feel like you always need a better monitor, but all of your cash ends up going to your computer parts first? Since I can’t see a raise of hands, I’m going to assume I’m not the only one. The reality is, the monitor is a crucial part of the computing, and especially the gaming, experience. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to throw the extra cash into a powerful GPU and think that you’ll get the better monitor a bit later. Ideally, it would be nice to get a great gaming experience at a cost that would let you have the great GPU as well. VIEWSONIC may be coming to the rescue of gamers everywhere with some incredible prices on their lineup of FreeSync monitors. We’re going to detail the VX2757-MHD, a 27″ 1080p monitor to see how well it measures up in a pretty crowded market. While the company may be familiar to many, we’ll still take a quick look at their core statements to get an idea of the purposes behind their designs.

    Hi, I have an Nvidia card and I’m interested in this monitor for its ability to go above the 60Hz refresh rate.

    I’m wondering if you can confirm whether this unit can do 75Hz at 1920×1080 without using AMD/Freesync?

      Josh Jackson

      Yes, it definitely will. You still might have to manually set the refresh rate in windows, but it’s a solid deal for just a 75Hz 1080p @ 27″.


    Just had to leave a comment to show my appreciation for such a thorough review/guide. Thank you so much for taking the time the write such an informative article, it shall be a huge help when I’m configuring my new Monitor tomorrow!
