by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

Hi guys it's mark from silence Tech today we're going to be checking out this beastly monitor from new sonic equipped with Nvidia g-sync technology and a whopping 165 Hertz refresh rate is the perfect monitor for first-person shooters providing super smooth gameplay the XG 2 7:03 is competing with the likes of the Asus PG 279 Q and a third xB two-seven-zero hu both of which I've tested and owned at some point or another few Sonic's 27 inch IPS to 560 by 1440 panel aims to deliver breathtaking visuals eradicating artifacts screen tearing and ghosting with its 4 millisecond greater gray

Response time ghosting was a big issue with the older IPS panels thankfully it seems like it's not an issue anymore priced at $699,000 right now on Amazon is priced similar to the previously mentioned competition opening up the box includes one DisplayPort cable one USB cable that connects to the monitor to power the USB hub there's one external power adapter that connects to Eve a UK plug or us plug and of course the monitor itself the starand comes already connected to the display straight out of the box on first impressions I'm not a massive fan of the green accents clearly

Because it's going to clash badly with any other color on your gaming setup or workstation although it would certainly fit right in next to any green Nvidia build it's a shame they didn't use LED lighting for the green parts and the least buyers could turn off the green lighting if they so choose that said the build quality of this monitor is great the buttons for the OSD are conveniently placed on the side and feel very premium the stand takes up a fair amount of disk space so it should be very sturdy surprisingly in fact it has a fair amount of wobble is nothing

To worry about just more than what I was expecting on the back of the monitor that's conveniently placed headphone hanger allowing you to tuck a pair of headphones neatly out of sight plus convenient cable routing holes the bezels are pretty slim a 12 five millimeters wide on the top and sides and 17 millimeters wide on the bottom although the race outwards away from the display making them appear bigger than what they actually are for connections this monitor has one HDMI ports something you would have even found on

The early g-sync panels it also has one DisplayPort 1.2 connection which provides enough bandwidth for super-smooth 165 Hertz the XG 2 7:03 also has a headphone jack and 4 USB 3.0 ports two of which are conveniently placed directly on the side of the monitor it also has two integrated speakers delivering stereo sound while U is pretty low even at full volume but they certainly get the job done and it's great to have them just in case your headphones or even your speakers ever break jumping into the OS you can really tweak the panel to your liking with

Various modes such as standard game movie and web more advanced modes are available and they all give you slightly different levels of gamma and color ultra-low motion blur is supported on this panel but only up to 120 Hertz and you have to sacrifice g-sync in the OSD you can select other great features such as dark boost it enhances the dark areas on the screen without over exposing rice there's adaptive contrast as well for brighter pictures and of course blue light filter which will reduce eyestrain the body features Vaser Mountain 100 times 100 so you can

Wall mount it no trouble at all if you prefer to leave your monitor on a stand you'll be pleased to know supports various adjustments from height tilt and pivot height ranges from 100 millimetres tilt five degrees forwards and 15 degrees backwards and swivel 175 degrees left or right the super clear IPS panel delivers very accurate and vivid colors there's hardly any color shift when viewing the panel at an angle even up to 178 degrees horizontally or vertically IPS globe is minimal take a look at the panel on the black wallpaper I was more than happy with the results

On my sample but please note this is just a sample also it has a contrast ratio of a thousand to one brightness of 350 CDM and it covers a hundred percent of the srgb color gamut the screen is covered with a light matte anti-glare coating providing a good middle ground between picture quality and screen reflection although like most monitors now you will notice a slight grainy effect on wise rounding off now what is it like to game on with this monitor gaming on 165 layers panel is mind-blowing especially when you factor in a resolution of two 560 by 1440 with

G-sync be prepared to see what PC gaming is truly capable of but make no mistake about it a monitor like this requires some serious horsepower to run to get the most out of a panel like this I would recommend pairing it up with anything less than the 1070 and 980ti or on the AMD camp and r9 fury X although you will be sacrificing g-sync as is only supported on Nvidia cars AMD's free sync monitors are generally cheaper and that's definitely something you should be looking at if you own an AMD cars either way trying to push a graphics card to 160 plus FPS 1440p with

Ultra or even high settings in some games is tough even with the latest and greatest cards on the market say amass you get a memorable experience like nothing else I've ever tried before I absolutely love high refresh rate monitors and xg2 7:03 delivers in every aspect the final award for the viewsonic XG 2 7:03 is gold and I hope you've enjoyed the review guys my name is Mark from silence tech goodbye
