Top Seller

Nice Design

One person said in their reviews that this PC monitor was good looking. This year Paul B wrote “The viewing angle is pretty large, too, though this won’t be an issue for most gamers unless they regularly enjoy having spectators around”.

One person who reviewed the product reckoned that it was smooth. Paul B mentioned on Amazon a few weeks ago “If you use an AMD card then you can bring AMD’s FreeSync technology into play as well, helping to smooth the movement out even further” in his Viewsonic XG2401 review.

One Viewsonic XG2401 owner mentioned in their reviews that it was neat. Paul B wrote on Amazon in October “Aside from that, only a neat little Viewsonic logo on the middle of the lower edge of the screen”.

One person who purchased it mentioned that it was a good design. Paul B said on Amazon a few weeks ago “As far as gaming monitors go, Viewsonic seem to be playing it cool with the design, there’s a very visible red stripe along the base”.
