As the joint cheapest display in this group test, the Viewsonic XG2530 could be forgiven for scrimping here and there. However, this monitor delivers on almost every front.
Most importantly, its display provides the performance and image quality you’d hope for. It ticks along at 240Hz, making for a lightning-fast, responsive feel, and giving up next to nothing compared to its peers, G-Sync aside.
As for image quality, it again impresses in every regard. It provides the best contrast level on test. Color balance is excellent right out of the box, and gamma response is very good. Just generally, it’s about as good as these 240Hz displays get.
As well as this core performance, you also get an adjustable stand and plenty of connectivity, with one DisplayPort, two HDMI, and two USB 3.0. You also get basic speakers and a headphone output.
The display is less impressive with regards to its style. Its look is uninspired, with a generic exterior adorned by splashes of color. Also, its menus are a little confusing, and the buttons for navigation aren’t the easiest to locate.
That aside, though,this is an excellent choice for the price. 90%
