ViewSonic touts its XG272-2K-OLED display as ideal for fast-paced content in rich color thanks to its ratings for ultra-low latency and a 240Hz refresh rate. The 27-inch monitor is compatible with NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium, and is also Blur Busters Verified. It is now finally available via a channel other than its own OEM.

As the name suggests, the XG272-2K-OLED is a monitor from ViewSonic touted to bring "exceptionally vivid colors and stark contrasts" to 1440p gaming. It also outdoes other AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible 27-inch panels with the additional emerging Blur Busters Verified buzz-word, touted to ensure sharp, detailed image reproduction that minimizes issues such as ghosting and tearing at all times.

From a more practical standpoint, the XG272-2K-OLED boasts a "pixel response time" of as little as 0.01 milliseconds (ms) and a refresh rate of up to 240Hz. On that note, the new gaming monitor shows itself as a ViewSonic nonetheless with quality-of-life features such as a powered (15W) USB-C port (and "various USB-A and USB-B ports") alongside HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 support.

The XG272 also very nearly looks just like any other ViewSonic-branded monitor in black from the front - even though its rear panel is given over to curving plastic finished in "radiant white" that houses ambient LED lighting.

The veritably stealthy gaming monitor had been released to on its launch - although it is now out of stock there. Never fear, it has also just made its way to Amazon with a release date of April 8, 2024. However, it can be pre-ordered from now for its original RRP of $899.99.
