Display major ViewSonic released its newest 27-inch desktop monitor targeting small-medium businesses, the VX2703mh-LED. Driven by a conventional TN-film panel, the monitor provides 1080p resolution with a fast response time.

The VX2703mh-LED from ViewSonic uses LED backlight illumination for the panel. Illumination is one of the most power-hungry components of a flat-panel display, and this is the area in which the company is looking to score some selling points. Its in-built Eco Mode feature causes a drop in power consumption by up to 40 percent. It has a typical power-draw of 28W, which goes down to 17W with the Eco Mode mode enabled. 

The 27-incher provides a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, with a response time of 3 ms (gray to gray), 170º horizontal, 160º vertical viewing angles, 1,200:1 static and 10M:1 dynamic contrast ratios, and 300 cd/m² maximum brightness. The panel surface is matte black, with anti-glare hard-coating (3H). Display inputs include HDMI, DVI, and D-Sub (VGA). 

The stand of the VX2703mh-LED tilts of 3º forward, and 16º backwards. Measuring 644 x 436 x 174 mm (with stand), the monitor weighs about 5.4 kg. It uses an internal power supply (AC input). For extras, the monitor features built-in stereo speakers with SRS Premium sound DSP, which draws signal from 3.5 mm jack, and HDMI. 

The VX2703mh-LED from ViewSonic is priced at US $299.99.
