Bookstand Option
The VX2753mh-LED features a very innovative industrial design, which allows it to be utilized with either the traditional base or in a bookstand configuration. Simply remove the base and tilt the neck back, to allow the monitor head to be displayed as a picture frame on the desktop. This allows not only the advantage of having the monitor head at desk level, but also brings a new degree of portability to the monitor. In the bookstand configuration the VX2753mh-LED can easily be carried to meetings as a companion display for your notebook computer!

What is a LED monitor?
The term "LED monitor" generally refers to a monitor with a LCD panel and a LED backlight. A typical LCD monitor uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) as a light source to illuminate the LCD panel. In a LED backlit monitor, white LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used as the light source. LED backlight provide the following benefits:

  • About 40% less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor
  • 30,000,000:1 MEGA Contrast Ratio
  • mercury-free backlight
  • Low EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference)
  • Slimmer design
  • Weight reduction

Save cash and save the planet
With its mercury-free backlight and low energy consumption, the ENERGY STAR® 5.0 certified VX2753mh-LED is not only but also friendly on your electricity bill. The savings of LED can add up to thousands of dollars saved for large install bases, such as big corporate buildings or schools. The savings can be as dramatic as $20,000 in five years*! For estimated savings that would apply to the VX2753mh-LED, please visit the LED Savings Calculator at

MEGA dynamic contrast ratio
One of the great features of VX2753mh-LED is its ability to dim the backlight completely for pure darkness during dark scenes such as a night shot in a movie. Contrast ratios refer to the ratio of the brightest color to the darkest color. With traditional CCFL backlit displays, contrast ratios are limited to the fluorescent lamp’s ability to dim in order to reproduce darkness. However, with the LED backlight, each LED has the ability to completely shut off allowing for a near infinite ratio of black to white contrast. The end result is true blacks that result in greater overall image quality.

What is response time?
Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies. Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Slow Fast
  Slow (higher) response time Fast (lower) response time

Full HD 1080p Resolution
The VX2753mh-LED features a 27" widescreen with 1920x1080 resolution that is capable of displaying a native Full HD 1080p image. Today, devices that can display Full HD content output are getting more and more common. However, without a native Full HD display, you will not be able to experience the picture clarity and the details of the 1080p content you view.


The Power of HDMI®
HDMI is one of the most powerful and widely available communication standards that connects digital audio/video sources such as set-top boxes, DVD players, personal computers (PCs, laptops), video game consoles such as the PlayStation® 3 and XBOX 360®, and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, computer monitors, and digital televisions. With just one cable, HDMI supports any TV or PC video format, including high-definition video and up to 8 channels of digital audio. This powerful technology comes standard in VX2753mh-LED. This way, you can connect your monitor to your desktop or laptop computer and work, surf the web or play games. Or you can connect it to your gaming console and enjoy the large 27” screen, 1ms response time and integrated speakers. You can even connect it to a cable box or a satellite receiver and watch TV on your monitor! Although the monitor doesn’t have a tuner to receive the TV signals from the air, HDMI + receiver box combination gives you the same TV experience. And another great example of the countless video sources you connect to is a Blu-ray® DVD/CD player.
In Use Gaming Cable DVD

SRS Premium Sound
ViewSonic partners with industry leading audio expert, SRS Labs, to provide you with a great sound experience. Now is the time to hear the true nature of sound with SRS Premium Sound™ technology on your monitor. SRS Premium Sound delivers a superior audio experience for music, video and games: more natural and immersive, with deeper bass, clearer dialog and outstanding surround sound. SRS Premium Sound software is included in the ViewSonic Wizard CD-ROM. It needs to be installed and should be running on your computer in order to deliver the great sound experience.


Diverse connectivity
The VX2753mh-LED features three video inputs, Dual HDMI and VGA. You can connect three different sources at the same time and then toggle from one to another by selecting the input source through the On-Screen-Display (OSD). Also, you can connect your audio source to the VX2753mh-LED and listen through the integrated speakers or you can easily hook up your headphones to the monitor for privacy.


Eco-mode for up to 35% energy savings
ViewSonic’s proprietary Eco Mode function comes standard with the VX2753mh-LED. When you don’t need all of the powerful features the VX2753mh-LED has to offer, you have the option to reduce the monitor’s brightness, save energy, and prolong the lamp life. You can select one of the “Optimize” or “Conserve” options and save up to 35% energy. Especially under low ambient light conditions, adjusting the brightness will improve visibility by reducing eye fatigue. Reducing brightness will also prolong the monitor’s lamp life, improving your return on investment.

The best pixel performance guarantee and 3 year warranty

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price Feb. 5 2012
I got this monitor on special during the holiday season and it works fine! I can confirm that it produces less heat than my old LCD 21 inch monitor. It has full HD 1080p and I can say that blu-ray movies are very sharp on it!

It's very nice to be able to open up two windows and do two things at the same time, since you have enough room on the screen to do so!

The 3 things that bugs me are:

- The buttons on the sides are somewhat close together and I sometimes push the wrong button.

- When there's a dark screen, I can see that the contour of the screen is brighter than the rest. I assume that the LED are all around the screen's perimeter and this results in blacks that are not truly black around the screen. It can be annoying in movie scenes that are supposed to be in the dark.

- For some reason, Viwesonic felt the need to put "LED HDMI 1080P Full HD" at the bottom left of the screen. It takes away some of the coolness of this model, although it's something minor.

Still for 300$ (what I paid during the rebate) I feel that I've got a good deal for all the capabilities of this monitor!

Note: Remember to use the scaling feature of your graphic card to expand the picture to the whole surface of your monitor! I've searched for some time before finding this option! At first, I thought my monitor was defective. Hopefully, you'll read this and will know what to do to take advantage of all 27 inches. :)

Almost plug and play on an old Dell 3100, however the video card didn't support the native resolution size so I had to use the largest proportional size available and it seems to work OK, looks like HD to me. Two minor complaints tho - the screen controls are a pain to use and once you have them set up you'll never want to touch them again, and the speaker controls are too awkward to change. I just left the Dell speakers that came with the computer hooked up (they come with a control knob).and muted the screens speakers

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty solid, but a few limitations Nov. 23 2012
By Philip TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
After about a year of solid use, I'm pretty happy with this monitor overall - it's good for gaming (great response time) and most general computing tasks.

The biggest problem with this monitor is significant light bleed from the right and left sides, and less but still noticeable light bleed from the top and bottom. This isn't noticeable during normal desktop tasks or playing games, but it is noticeable when watching movies and impossible to miss when viewing photos. If you want a monitor for movies or photos, look elsewhere.

The speakers are pretty mediocre as well - lacking any real bass presence. Most users will probably attach a pair of externals, but the built-in ones are utterly inadequate for listening to music, movies or playing games. OK for Skype or Windows system noises though.

For the price, it's a quite adequate gaming monitor. A good 2560x1440 would set you back by at least double the amount.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor March 8 2011
By James Kebinger - Published on
I've had this monitor for a few days. My first impressions are very good. Screen is great with no dead pixels and even lighting.

Great picture
Looks good

Cons (and these I expected):
Stand isn't adjustable vertically
Speakers sound terrible. (tinny, which is to be expected on a monitor this skinny)

There's a gotcha I experienced hooking up my Macbook Pro via a Display Port to HDMI adapter. At first, choosing the 1080p resolution produces an image that's too large for the screen - that is the edges are chopped off. Adjusting the under/overscan slider makes it fit, but at the expense of being fuzzy. The solution is in the monitor's setting, under input select, each HDMI input has an AV/PC setting. Mine were set to AV by default. Switching that to PC made the image fit perfectly with no fuzzies.

4.0 out of 5 stars All in All a Great Monitor Sept. 30 2011
By Krista - Published on
Verified Purchase
Having upgraded to a 24" VA2431 (non-LED) ViewSonic at the office, was enough to embark on a 27"-monitor-for-home-quest that would better its performance. After enough research, the final contenders were narrowed down to the Samsung S27A550H (LED) and the ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED; however the Samsung was nixed due to reported light bleed and stand issues, the lack of forward tilt, as well as enough users citing poorly rendered text. Not having seen it in the flesh, the latter may be attributed to among other things: user inability to select Samsung's PC Mode. Nonetheless after receiving the ViewSonic, I:
A. Hooked it up to a desktop system (E4500 Core 2 CPU, XP Sp3, XFX ATI Radeon HD6670 1 GB DDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card HD667XZAF3) via D-Sub.
B. Installed the software.
C. Used the interface buttons on the monitor to access the monitor's setup menu and changed it to "PC Mode".
D. Accessed ATI's Catalyst Control Center to change the overscan to 0% - to better fill the viewable space.
E. Went back into the monitor's setup menu and changed the:
* Horizontal Size until the image went corner-to-corner.
* Operation of the front bezel LED to turn off when the panel was in use (a nice feature).
* Brightness and contrast settings to yield a more pleasing image.
* LCD response time to Advanced.
F. Switched to the included HDMI Cable.
The results were well delineated text (without adjusting Microsoft's ClearType text), smooth motion, good contrast, very nice detail and an overall image that popped when source material was up to it (and I haven't adjusted Fine Tune and Sharpness yet)!

Though I have the front bezel LED turned off when the panel is in use, it does glow a brighter than needed amber when the monitor is in standby. So with a reasonable disdain for needless light pollution from equipment in my environment, I used a Sharpie along the bottom surface of the LED fascia which dimmed output by roughly 50%. That notwithstanding, a design team more on the ball would have made it dimmable in user-selectable steps.

It's interesting to note that when a Dell XPS15 Laptop was connected to the ViewSonic, the image was somewhat faded compared to the XPS' 1080P panel (or the XFX desktop video card for that matter); however a few adjustments took care of that in short order. Speaking of laptops and ViewSonic monitors: the home and the work laptops (both I7-2620M CPU Win7 64 machines from different manufacturers) use Intel's HD 3000 integrated video hardware and kick over to an Nvidia adapter when needed. On the work PC/VA2431 monitor combination I needed to make adjustments to ClearType text so characters appeared as anomaly free as possible. The VX2753' on the other hand needed no such adjustment from either the home desktop or laptop with text looking so far the best I've seen.

Also noteworthy is when I tested for video judder at home (desktop) and work (laptop) using VLC Media Player and The Incredibles, the number of occurrences was unfortunately way too high; and with the VLC too unstable in both locations: I uninstalled it. In both locations I installed the Essentials Codec Pack (free @ and (with that came) Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Player; and though judder through MPC-HC or Windows Media Player (which couldn't play a movie until I installed the codec pack) was greatly reduced, it still happened on the home desktop. Using either player on the work PC after the ECP install and the problem was gone almost entirely. It wasn't until I switched to an old standby of PowerDVD 7 at home that the movie looked as good (lack of judder-wise) as the work PC running either MPC-HC or WMP. Though I haven't tried testing movies on the Dell Laptop, I realized the judder problems were not attributable to the monitor at a 60Hz refresh rate.

What I'm getting at is this: any display problems attributed to a correctly operating VX2753' will boil down to: user error and/or upstream hardware/software issues - not the monitor.

1. If installed, the included software seems nothing more than wasted drive space as the "drivers" appear to be useless and a monitor configuration utility is not included.
2. Because of the above, one relies on the menu buttons which are harder to press than needed and provides little in the way of tactile differentiation.
3. Unfortunately those buttons are on the right side bezel, so those wanting two or more of the monitors side-by-side, will find menu access more inconvenient; therefore, they should've been placed on the bottom bezel.
4. Certain features (Horizontal Size, Fine Tune, etc.) are only available when using a D-Sub Cable.
5. From what little I saw of it, the dynamic contrast is detrimental...
6. The front LED is a bit bright though it's easily fixed.
7. The large and unnecessary HDMI lettering on the front bezel (fortunately becomes mostly innocuous when using the monitor).
8. The speakers are somewhere just above two cans and a string.
9. As a discerning product designer and user, it's easy to see that the lettering, LED, software, button placement and functionality are hits an otherwise outstanding product takes when less than talented product team members spill their lack of ability on it. Therefore there's a corresponding hit on pride of ownership.

1. Due to the screen size, it's easy to read two documents side-by-side.
2. No dead pixels.
3. Panel can be supported via stand or "kickstand".
4. The base connects securely to the "kickstand" via wing nut.
5. The stand is very supportive and stable.
6. No back-light bleed.
7. Evenly lit across the panel.
8. Imparts a great deal of graphics detail.
9. Text is extremely crisp and evenly rendered.
10. Selectable LCD Response Time (VS quotes the time it takes a pixel to go from black to white to black [in milliseconds], which is more stringent than the common G2G [gray-to-gray in milliseconds]).
11. At the "Advanced" (2ms?) LCD response setting, motion is very linear without artifacts that I can detect.
12. Front bezel LED can be configured to turn off when the panel is in use.
13. Due to LED backlighting and associated circuitry driving the panel, this model (according to the website) typically consumes 20 watts (presumably when in use as opposed to an average of in-use and standby times); however, the manual states 36 watts.
14. Uses less than 1 watt in Standby.
15. The panel can tilt forward 5 degrees (helpful in my setup).
16. 1200:1 contrast ratio is the best spec. I've seen for 27" panels.
17. One of the brighter panels at 300 cd/m2.
18. Very good color saturation.
19. Relatively light weight.
20. HDMI and D-Sub cables come with it.
21. Surprisingly the HDMI Cable fits snuggly at both ends.
22. Very good viewing angles for a TN panel.
23. 3 year warranty.
24. Generates very little heat.
25. Mac compatible.
26. Considering all of the above, it may be one of the best 27" 1080P monitors under $1,000.00. It is so good at rendering text, graphics and motion, that those considering spending much more may think twice about their prospective purchase after reading this and/or seeing one setup to their liking.

With the quest over and the novelty of having upgraded from a 19" Samsung to the 27" ViewSonic still intact, some very cool free software was put into service. First the desktop was cleared of any icons, and RocketDock was installed (RocketDock.Com) along with icons I chose from their site. Next I downloaded Wallpaper Cycler Lite (Download.CNET.Com), made a few categories, then sourced some excellent (and also free) HD wallpaper from HDwallpapers.In and Desktopnexus.Com. With RocketDock and the XP Taskbar set to auto-hide, the rest is unfettered HD eye candy - once a minute - until the PC is needed or put in standby.

Enjoy your monitor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Display April 6 2011
By Emily Wind - Published on
Verified Purchase
This monitor has taken some flack for the way it sounds, so I will review this first. As far as sound goes, the built-in speakers are not very nice sounding from what I tried of them, although this was without the included software which is intended to improve their sound output. However, fitting amazing speakers in such a tight place as this really thin monitor is not possible due to the reality of sound production requiring a certain speaker size to produce various frequencies due to simple physics of vibration creation. If you want good sound though, all you have to do is buy a nice, inexpensive pair of computer speakers such as Logitech S220 2.1 Speaker System with Subwoofer and plug them into the sound output on the back of the monitor and it will route all of the sound input from the HDMI into them, which is quite nice.

That said, keep in mind that first and foremost you are purchasing an LCD monitor. Its true purpose is to display your desktop, images, videos and etc from your computer (or your Xbox 360, PS3, Blu-Ray player and etc), not to play sound. In that realm, as far as 24" monitors go from what I have seen and used, this is simply the best I have seen when compared to displays from vendors such as ASUS and Apple. The colours are extremely vivid and the viewing angles are very nice (can see movies/games from the extreme sides). The back-lighting is perfectly balanced, non-bleeding and it is great for watching HD movies as well as playing games or doing standard web browsing. It is also extremely thin and light despite being 24".

In short, if you are considering buying this monitor; do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing clarity and ultra thin as the name April 27 2011
By OptimusPrime - Published on
This is an excellent monitor considering what it offers. I am a person who sticks to a brand which delivers high quality and is worth using for several years. In monitors I prefer Sony, ViewSonic or HP. I have been using Sony SDM-S95DR LCD 19 inch monitors for almost several years in the office. Even Samsung is doing great in monitor/screens but somehow I have a negative feeling/experience about this brand and it cannot be compared with brands like Sony. I got this for my personal from Micro-Center ($208 including tax) for use at home and is just wonderful and saves hell lot of space. I reviewed this product on Amazon / Internet and then thought of going for it.

1. Amazing resolution 1920x1080p.
2. No hassle installing the product. I am using Win 7 and installed the software in CD came with the box.
3. Ultra-Thin for sure in it's competition.
4. 2 HDMI ports and 1 VGA (D-Sub) port available with IN and OUT sound ports.
5. Also like the feature where you can place the monitor like a photo-frame. Just pull slowly the lever from the back and place it on the desk. No need to install the stand.
6. About looks: It's decent and pretty professional looking. I really don't like those glossy girly frames.

1. It has in-built speaker, but the volume is damn low at it's high setting. But I really don't care as I prefer separate speakers. This is why I snatched 1 star from the rating. But considering an ultra thin model this is what we should expect.

Additional information:
If you use HDMI connection, couple of menus will be disabled. Also if you experience your picture being crossing the screen then you may have to select HDMI from the Input Selection from Menus. Menus like Auto image adjust and couple more are grayed-out/disabled with HDMI connection. It's the behavior and not a fault.
Also note that this is a LED Backlit LCD monitor. These day manufacturers usually call "LED Backlit LCD" display as "LED" display.

The most selling on Amazon is ViewSonic VX2450WM as compared to this but VX2450WM has no HDMI and this has 2 HDMI connections with 1 D-Sub and is ultra thin.

Update: March 15th 2012 12:22 PM EST
You cannot rotate the monitor after installing the stand. Not a disadvantage for me because I don't keep on changing the position of my monitor. As it's weight is very light, moving/rotating the whole monitor position is very easy. These aren't those huge CRT like monitors where you really need those rotating stands.

Crisp quality and saves space, absolutely no issues faced till date. 100% recommended.

Update: Jan 22nd 2014 04:52 PM EST
Still using it. No dead pixels. Running like a Titan.

5.0 out of 5 stars USE YCbCr44 to avoid excessive backlight leaking Aug. 26 2011
By L. D. Rosa - Published on
Verified Purchase
Now yes! Better better contrast:
If you use RGB format, black will be just dark gray. So use YCbCr444 mode. If you have a nvidia card, go to nvidia control panel - adjust desktop color settings - digital color format and choose YCbCr44. Then under the monitor's control menu go to manual image adjust - display mode and choose YUV mode.

key words hopping that some people can find this review: (Viewsonic VX2453MH-LED 24-Inch, washed out, image, better, contrast, black, backlight, leaking, bad, annoying)
