Pros

The VX2457-MHD has one of the fastest response times when compared in benchmark tests with other gaming monitors within its price range, thanks to the AMD FreeSync technology that it uses.

This means that all of the images that are displayed and refreshed through your monitor are going to be as up to date and as perfectly synced with what your computer actually processed as possible.

No longer will you have to worry about your reaction time being too fast for what you see on your screen. Get rid of the local lag with this ultra-fast setup with the FreeSync system pre built with this amazing gaming monitor.

Another advantage that the ViewSonic VX2457-MHD has over its competitors is the fact that it perfectly blends 2ms of rate display with 1080p.

A lot of the gaming monitors that are as affordable as the VX2457-MHD tend to stick with a 720p display that is upscaled to 1080p for better marketing.

The VX2457-MHD has a true 1080p display which means that none of the images on your screen are going to be blurred or stretched out. None are also going to be cropped out so you can play all of your games in true 1080p fashion.

The VX2457-MHD stands out from the rest of the pack due to its ability to adapt to a lot of the current technologies that we have. You can use this gaming monitor with almost any rig due to the fact that you can plug it in with VGA, HDMI or even any sort of USB port.

There are also other available ports that you can use for your smart devices if you want to play any of your locally stored files without having to worry about transferring them through a disk storage, or through another device such as your computer, just to play a video or show a photo.

This gaming monitor will do it all for you with no burden on the display or frame rates at all! Your videos will be as smooth as you recorded them and all of your images are going to be as crisp as you shot them with your phone or camera.

Cons

One of the most common things that people told us about the VX2457-MHD is that it easily broke. Now, this is definitely not the reputation that you want to build, but there are a handful of gamers who said that the wirings and ports for the VX2457-MHD easily fried.

They did not necessarily fry electrically, but they proved that those ports were no longer working after a series of intense gaming sessions, with the settings bumped up to the highest possible.

Whether this was human error, intentional or a manufacturing error, we are not really sure, but we hope this is addressed in future releases by ViewSonic.

Conclusion

The ViewSonic is definitely a must buy! There will be a lot more room for you to lay your eyes on and a lot more details can be displayed on your screen whenever you are playing first-person shooters or strategy games.
