Viewsonic XG2401 Review: 144Hz Gaming Monitor. Highly recommended on the internet, Highly Recommended on Lim's Cave.
The Viewsonic XG2401 is the fifth monitor in this Freesync Tournament. It is highly recommended on the internet, and yes, the Viewsonic XG2401 is a really good choice. It's probably the best monitor in this tournament as long as you don't need a motion blur reduction (backlight scanning/strobing) feature as the LG 24GM29G-B has for example. You also should consider, that Viewsonic will release soon the newer version XG2402 which has an upgraded design and gamma settings within the OSD. Should you wait? Maybe only when you don't like the XG2401's thick bezels. In the worst case, the Viewsonic XG2402 would have a worse illumination, homogeneity and black uniformity, because of its thinner bezels. Well, everything else as always, in this review

- Excellent price performance - Excellent blacks for a TN Panel - Excellent contrast - Excellent homogeneity (no clouding, no backlight bleed) - Excellent colors for a TN Panel - Very good image quality out of the box - Freesync with a range between 48-144 Hz - Good standard gamma value "2.1" - USB Hub with 2x USB 3.0 - Good foot stand, but a bit bulky - Flicker-Free - Good overdrive settings
- Matte panel coating (Still better than the Asus PG278QR or Acer XB271HUA) - Vertical lines on the top right screen area (on my unit) - No different gamma settings (only different gamma settings between different presets) - No opportunity to change brightness within different presets
- Only one preset and no preset buttons - Some artifacts (red, green or blue) depending on color temperature @ text and fast moving objects on a uniform background Still, you shouldn't worry about that much
