Asus VG278H: 27-Inch 120Hz 3D Gaming Monitor

Asus has announced a beefy 27-inch monitor with 120 Hz and 3D support via an Nvidia 3D Vision kit. The new monitor was announced at CeBIT 2011 in Hannover. Its name is VG278H and should be of great interest to gamers everywhere who are on the lookout for a large 3D-capable monitor.For a monitor to support 3D (or more specifically 3D from Nvidia) it needs twice the refresh rate of the usual 60Hz. We don’t know yet if it will ship bundled with 3D Vision kits but it seems rather likely. The other specs on the Asus VG278H include a LED-backlit TN panel with Full HD (1920×1080) resolution. It also has an impressively low 2 ms response time (G2G) and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The brightness is good thanks to the LED tech; 400 cd/m2 and viewing angles 170/160 degrees. Connectivity includes HDMI, DVI and D-SUB (VGA).

1ms Monitor from ViewSonic

The ViewSonic VX2739wm is the first monitor with a response time of just 1 ms, making it a great option for gamers, and gamers are no doubt the target consumers that ViewSonic want to reach with this model. It’s a 27 inch screen (TN panel) with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels in 16:9 format, 1 ms (G2G) response time, 1200:1 contrast ratio and 170/160 viewing angles. The connectors on the VX2739wm include DVI, HDMI or D-SUB. The HDMI input means that you may just as well use it with a TV projector, Blu-ray player or a gaming console like the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. It’s made of excessively glossy black plastic – at least the frame – and it also has a tilt function. This is the best portable monitor 2019 The extremely impressive response time on this screen appears to be a a result of an aggressive RTC (overdrive circuit) technology. ViewSonic has even built in some additional advanced settings for this RTC function that allows the user to control the overdrive feature. The list price right now is $349.
