The multi-adjusting ergonomic design provides for a better working environment and helps reduce strain in the workplace.


    This monitor features a 100 x 100mm VESA-mountable design that allows you to mount the monitor depending on your specific needs.

    ViewSonic Flicker-Free Technology

    Flicker-free delivers a more comfortable viewing experience. Rather than using Pulse Width Modulation that continuously turns the LED backlight on and off, the VP2780-4K uses DC modulation backlights that maintain a steady stream of direct current power eliminating screen flickering at all brightness levels.

    Blue Light Filter for More Comfortable Viewing

    The VP2780-4K features a Blue Light Filter setting that allows users to adjust the amount of blue light emitted from the screen enabling longer viewing times and increased eye comfort for work and multimedia applications.

    Uniformity Enhancement for Consistent and Balanced Image Performance

    The VP2780-4K’s Uniformity Correction function compensates any luminance and color uniformity imbalance on the screen such as dark spots, uneven brightness, or illegible images on the screen. With the ViewSonic uniformity correction function, grey-scale levels are balanced, and Delta E scores are improved to be ≦2. Colour reproduction, accuracy, and Delta E numbers will all be improved, increasing reliability and offering the highest quality viewing experience from every monitor.

    Independent 6-axis Colour Adjustment Function

    To deliver precise and accurate colour performance, the independent 6-axis colour adjustment function (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) allows users to customize hue and saturation for each colour axis individually, without affecting the other colour outputs. In addition, the gain and offset functions allow users to control white balance for the upmost control when manipulating contrast and dark scenes.

    Eco-mode Conserves More Energy and Cuts Costs

    ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco-mode energy-saving feature is built into all ViewSonic LED monitors. Eco-mode adjusts brightness of the display thereby reducing power consumption to reduce running costs and prolong the life of the display.

    Review: ViewSonic VP2780-4K

    “ViewSonic understands the premium 4K monitor market is littered with relatively inexpensive displays that use very similar panels. Aiming for a different beat with the VP2780-4K, designed for multimedia professionals first and foremost, ViewSonic has a number of hits and a few misses.
    Excellent colour accuracy and uniformity are undoubted strong points, […]It’s out-of-the-box performance is top-notch for those that need it most.
    ViewSonic has chosen to appeal to a wide cross-section of professional users with the VP2780-4K and, in the main, succeeded. The large price premium over regular 4K screens is justified by high colour- and uniformity-accurate performance out of the box. If that's what you need, put the VP2780-4K on a shortlist.”

    “The lack of consumer features means this screen isn't suitable for home use, but that's fine – it's a professional panel through-and-through and, in areas where it really matters, the ViewSonic delivers. It's got fantastic image quality, a high resolution and a huge amount of versatility. If you're after a high-quality screen for professional purposes but don't want to break the four-figure barrier then this is an excellent option. 4/5”

    “The ViewSonic VP2780-4K is expensive for a consumer monitor at £699, although relatively cheap when set against professional monitors with full Adobe RGB colour and polished OSD menus, for which you can expect to pay closer to twice the price.

    ViewSonic VP2780-4K review: 27-inch, 4K monitor for professional imaging

    ViewSonic VP2780-4K review: 27-inch, 4K monitor for professional imaging

    “Resolution alone does not guarantee a better image; refresh rate is important too, which for 4K is mainly limited by the bandwidth of the video interface. Over HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 the maximum refresh rate is limited to 60Hz, which is better than the 30Hz of HDMI 1.4 but arguably still slow enough that image quality -- particularly on moving images -- is affected. The most recent standard, DisplayPort 1.3, supports 4K at up to 120Hz refresh and may appear in products in 2016. The VP2780-4K's image quality is very good and the careful factory calibration means that it may be possible to use this monitor for colour-critical tasks without further colour management. Other manufacturers supply 27-inch 4K monitors, of course, but it's hard to find a comparable display with the professional colour specifications of ViewSonic's VP2780-4K at this price point. 8.0/10”

    ViewSonic VP2780-4K

    ViewSonic VP2780-4K

    “The VP2780-4K offered a very good all-round screen with a robust and sturdy design and feature set. The versatile stand, wide range of connectivity options and useful extras like USB 3.0 ports and PiP/PbP were pleasing, and showed that ViewSonic continue to offer high end features from their VP series. The design of the screen is fairly industrial and perhaps lacks the wow factor of some alternative designs in the market. Maybe the stand needs a bit of a refresh in the future? However, it is solid and reliable and will no doubt suit a lot of people's taste all the same.
    This is the first of their VP range to offer Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution, and it does this well - offering 60Hz refresh rate support over both DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0. As ever with super high resolutions like this you need to keep in mind the support for effective scaling from your operating system and applications. You also need to consider the demands on your graphics card when it comes to multimedia uses at such a high resolution. The high pixel density on a 27" screen size provided a sharp and clear image which is the main aim of course.
    In other performance areas the factory calibration provided a decent default setup with reliable gamma, white point and a strong contrast ratio. You don't have the option of wide gamut support on this model like the previous VP2772, so keep that in mind if you wanted to work with wide gamut content. The flicker free backlight and light AG coating were welcome as ever and although the response time was slightly slower than other 60Hz IPS panels it was still pretty decent, and at least free from noticeable overshoot. The display lag was also pretty low and so the screen could be a reasonable option for Ultra HD gaming on an IPS panel at the moment. There were only really a couple of minor performance negatives we felt. We would have gladly sacrificed a bit off the top end of the very high brightness adjustment range for the sake of a bit more control at the lower end in an ideal World. Also there wasn't an aspect ratio option to maintain the source aspect but fill more of the screen. You have 1:1 at least, but we would have liked this additional option. Overall though we are picking a bit and the screen impressed us with very good all-round performance and a wide selection of extras.”
