Viewing The World

When it comes to display and projection solutions, ViewSonic is a brand that’s been on the forefront, giving customers countless great products to choose from. Be it for the gamer or professional user, there will be a monitor or projector that will suit your need. For this month, we managed to get our hands on the VX3211-4K-mhd model that is made for the creatives or movie fanatics.

How so, you might ask? Well, the monitor is equipped with 95% NTSC wide colour gamut coverage. This means that the monitor is capable of displaying more colours compared to your average monitor and when it comes to creating masterpieces, you will have more power over colours and you will be able to notice the different shades of colours. Coupled with the addition of HDR10, the contrast between colours are more defined and noticeable. For movie goers, this will help you to see more details in between the brighter and darker areas.

To assist with your viewing pleasure, the 31.5-inch display does come with an anti-glare coating that will help you work and even watch your movies in brighter conditions. For the ones that tend to stare at the monitors either for work or games, the monitor does come with blue light filter that helps reduce the amount of blue light that goes through and flicker-free technology that will minimise eye strain. The monitor is also designed with two integrated speakers at the back of the monitor that is sufficiently loud.

With three total inputs of two HDMI and one DisplayPort, you could combine up to three devices to be used on a single monitor. It even supports Picture-In-Picture Mode that allows you to have two displays working together. However, having just three total inputs could be annoying – plugging in the PC would mean that you can only plug in two consoles or a console and a laptop.

This display is also no slouch when it comes to gaming, as it is 4K ready and comes with FreeSync as well. With AMD’s FreeSync, there was no screen tearing or stuttering we noticed when we paired it with an AMD graphics card. However, the monitor only comes with a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz, while not perfect for gaming, it will perform just fine. That aside, having controls at the back of the monitor is also an annoyance as you will sometimes miss-click the button when trying to change up the settings of the monitor.

CHIP CONCLUDE: A great monitor with an affordable price if you want to watch your shows in Ultra HD.
