Display specialist ViewSonic has introduced the new OMNI VX28 series dedicated to “casual gamers” who don’t want to spend too much on a dedicated monitor.
The monitor market is vast and offers solutions for any user or professional. The vast majority are general solutions for all computing uses, including work tasks, entertainment and some specific features for gaming on PC.
ViewSonic’s OMNI VX28s are of this type. Monitors that can be used for any type of task, but include some “winks” to the casual gamer. The series includes three different versions: OMNI VX2428, VX2728J and VX2728J-2K, with screen sizes of 24 and 27 inches.
The most interesting is the VX2728J-2K, a monitor of 27 inches diagonal with native resolution QuadHD (2560 x 1440 pixels), with borderless three-frame layout. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium synchronization technology, offering a 165Hz refresh rate and 0.5ms MPRT response time to improve fluidity in games.
It has an ergonomic base for height adjustment and rotation, with connectivity options that include HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.4, audio output and a USB port hub.
The other two models have similar specifications. The VX2428 offers 24 inches diagonal with FHD resolution, while the VX2728J adds 27 inches with the same resolution. The refresh rate and response time is the same as the top model, with support for FreeSync Premium.
