Viewsonic XG3220 Gaming Monitor Review

Refresh vs. Resolution Companies love bragging about 4k resolution and I don’t exactly know why. Sure, more pixels should equate to a better image, but the eye can only see so much.

ViewSonic XG2701 Gaming Monitor Review

Introduction Is Virtual Reality supposed to be the gold standard of immersion? VR is nice, but the reality for most of us is that we depend on a monitor for our computing experience above anything else. The good news is that panel technology is improving immensely, on top of being more affordable.

The real question is how well ViewSonic does with the other feature to help offset the aging panel technology on this model. We’ll address that soon, right after a statement from the company.

Nixeus NX-VUE24 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

Not only does this leave room for a competitive market, but now this also gives AMD fans a hand in the technology. Although they don’t exactly perform the same way, they both have the same concept in mind. We will go over the AMD FreeSync technology in just a little bit. In the meantime… we bring you the new Nixeus 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Display review. The Nixeus brand is not as mainstream as some of the other popular brands like ASUS, BenQ or even Acer, but they are hitting the market strong with their new AMD FreeSync enabled display. We were one of the few lucky sites that were able to get our hands on an initial engineer sample of the Nixeus 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Display. This is our...
