ViewSonic Introduces $349 VX2739wm 27" LCD Monitor For Gamers

Wow, talk about getting two pennies for your thoughts. If you have been dreaming of a new widescreen monitor, particularly one in the 27" category, this week is certainly a good one to be looking. Yesterday NEC introduced a new 27" LCD designed for use by creative professionals, and today ViewSonic has introduced their own 27" LCD for use by everyone else.

The company claims that their new VX2739wm is the world's first 27" Full HD monitor with a 1ms response time, which makes it perfect for use with game consoles and even PCs. Modern day titles usually require fast response rates in order to avoid "ghosting," and this 1080p display is meant to eliminate just that. There's also a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, SRS Premium Sound and a price tag that would make anyone look twice: $349. It's available for pre-order now at Amazon, NewEgg and PCMall.
