The spectrum of monitors available in the market is able to satisfy the needs of the most fastidious customers. Nevertheless, such abundance of products creates some confusion when it comes about the purchase of a really worthy item. Monitor ViewSonic VP2765-LED belongs to the generation of professional models based on MVA array and is able to ensure appropriate color effects and high contrast range. Upon the whole, monitors with the implemented MVA technologies are considered to be rarity in the hardware market, so ViewSonic VP2765-LED deserves a special attention from the part of professional or entry-level customers.
Design and Framework
Monitor ViewSonic VP2765-LED is notable for the ponderous design void of refinement. Huge bearing bottom is the first striking peculiarity that bursts into the eye. Such design approach is called to ensure the 100% framework consistency which adds to the product’s reliability. Despite huge dimensions, the bearing is developed according to the latest engineering solutions. The customer is able to adjust the monitor location by four rotation axes; besides, the bearing has got all necessary adjustments (height, display rotation from horizontal to vertical location, tilt angle, pivot turn).
All other peculiarities of design can be shortly described as professional, strict and ascetic: dead texture of the panel harmonizes with the laconic inscriptions which get good visibility on a dark surface. All control buttons are accommodated on the bottom ledge in order not to distract the customer’s attention. A couple of the integrated buttons are called to ensure quick menu activation, and the adjustment of contrast and intensity. Power LED is localized in the central part of the bottom ledge but cannot be characterized by the color intensity. USB ports take their places on the side panel of the monitor and can be connected with diverse storage devices.
It should be underlined that this monitor can be connected with relatively old PCs as well as up-to-date models via digital or analog interfaces thanks to the availability of numerous video inputs. Thus, the monitor is equipped with D-Sub, DVI-D inputs, as well as modern DisplayPort input, but is void of HDMI input. Moreover, the layout of the monitor enables hassle-free switch between the two video signal resources by means of a single button click.
The nominal delivery set of monitor ViewSonic embraces all integral components necessary for the connection with any digital or analog device: power cable, user manual, disk with color profile, DVI cable, D-Sub cable, and USB cable.

At the same time, four USB 2.0 ports enable the connection with not only storage devices, but also with keyboard and mouse directly from the monitor. The other specifications include:
— screen: diagonal length equals to 27 inches, standard resolution – 1920x1200;
— image parameters: array type – AMVA, quantity of displayed colors – 16.7 million, highlighter type – LED, viewing angles – 178 H/178 V, BtW response time – 25 ms;
— physical characteristics: weight without bearing – 5.7 kg, with bearing – 8.5 kg, integrated PSU, availability of Kensington lock fixing, dimensions with bearing – 642x466x388.
The main menu is distinguished by a well-structured designing and goes with the user-friendly interface. All image settings are divided into three subgroups. Main window call is realized by means of the button ‘1’ on the front panel. The adjustment of contrast and intensity is initiated in ‘Contrast/Intensity’ section. ‘Input Choice’ enables the switching of the video inputs. Submenu ‘Manual Image Setup’ (for digital signal) enables the activation of dynamic contrast option and of power-saving mode; at the same time, it enables the adjustment of image sharpness (for analog interface). ‘Settings Menu’ section provides for the adjustment of all service monitor options, including window background, interface language, and many more operations. Submenu ‘Settings Back-off’ allows resetting all parameters by default.
