The folks over at the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) probably thought the royalty free digital interconnect known as DisplayPort would have supplanted DVI and VGA interfaces by now, but here we are five years after it was designed and not a lot of mainstream users are ditching their DVI cables. We're still a few years away from when DisplayPort is expected to dominate the commercial desktop scene, but you can still find it on select displays, such as ViewSonic's latest large format graphics (VG2732m-LED) and professional (VP2765-LED) monitors.
Both are 27-inch Full HD (1920x1080) panels with LED backlighting. ViewSonic says the VP2765-LED kicks things up a notch with Advanced MVA (AMVA) LED panel technology featuring a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (3,000:1 static), 5ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178-degree viewing angle and a 4-port USB hub.
The VG2732m-LED sports the same 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio, but with a 1,200:1 static rating. It has a 3ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 170/160-degree viewing angle (H/V), 4-port USB hub, 3.5mm audio input, and built in speakers.
In addition to DisplayPort connectivity, both monitors also feature DVI-D and VGA inputs. Also common to both displays are pivot, height, tilt, and swivel functionality, and a ThinEdge slim bezel.
The VG2732m-LED and VP2765-LED will ship next week for $429 and $579, respectively.
