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 ViewSonic XG2701 gives gaming a huge improvement with a 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync technology. On the other hand, we still have to put up with a TN panel. 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.
This guide will hopefully help you find the perfect gaming monitor. Size, refresh range, adaptive sync, price, and features like HDR are all part of a great viewing experience. The perfect monitor doesn't exist yet, but MSI, Samsung, ViewSonic, Asus and Sceptre have some close ones. Maybe a perfect one will exist soon!

If you have a relatively new graphics card, you’re going to want a high-end monitor.

FreeSync was developed to compete with Nvidia’s Gsync technology. These technologies were developed to combat against screen tearing and the input lag that comes from Vsync. Today I will be looking at ViewSonic’s XG2703-GS, which is the companies first Gsync monitor.
