The ViewSonic XG2703-GS (See it on Amazon) sits at the top of the company’s lineup of 27-inch gaming monitors. Its headline-grabbing features are NVidia G-Sync adaptive refresh rate technology, WQHD 2560×1440 resolution, and an insanely high 165Hz refresh rate. These features add up to an incredible gaming experience but naturally they don’t come cheap as the XG2703-GS carries a hefty price tag of $699.99, but that’s par for the course when it comes to G-Sync enabled displays.
To wit, the 27-inch ViewSonic XG2701 is basically the same monitor except it sports AMD’s FreeSync technology, and it’s almost half the price at $339. To be fair it uses a cheaper, lower-resolution 1080p TN panel and has a slightly lower 144Hz refresh rate. The XG2703-GS competes directly with the Asus ROG Swift PG278QR, which has the same specs and the same price, but comes in a red/black theme.
