Viewsonic Vx2458-Mhd: Best Gaming Monitor? | [Features And Performance Review]

If you are looking for a gaming monitor, there are several features to consider. A gaming monitor should have a high refresh rate, quick response times, and adaptive refresh rate technology in 2019. The ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD checks all the boxes and is reasonably priced. We decided we had to check it out for ourselves because it was so cheap.

Appearance Of The Monitor

Viewsonic Vx2458-Mhd
  • ViewSonic clearly thought that using glossy plastic all over the monitor was a good idea. Because of the thick bezels, the ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD is less suitable for multi-monitor setups.
  • The back is even glossier, with a good array of inputs in the center, stereo speakers flanking them, and a single joystick breaking the glossy deep black finish.
  • It’s worth noting that the vertical portion of the stand is permanently attached to the back of the monitor, while the feet are attached separately with a screw.
  • There are no VESA mounting points, which is to be expected at this price point.

Performance

  • The maximum brightness we saw was with the User Color color temperature setting, at 308 cd/m2 at the center, while on the Native mode we are seeing a measured brightness of around 230cd/m2 before calibrating, and around 199 cd/m2 once we have calibrated it to 6500K and gamma 2.2.
  • Uniformity is good to the naked eye, but when examined with a Sypder5, we notice that the top edge is slightly darker than the center.
  • It’s perfectly fine for everyday use and gaming, as I didn’t notice any difference in brightness.
  • I would not recommend purchasing this monitor for production work, but no one buys a curved monitor for that purpose.
  • Color gamut is also impressive, with 95.0% sRGB coverage, 82.0% Adobe RGB coverage, and 84.1% DCI P3 coverage.
  • The sRGB coverage is slightly lacking in the blue end, and the ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD is severely lacking in the red and green areas in DCI-P3.
  • Having said that, the results here are surprisingly good, delivering nearly 100% sRGB gamut.
  • The gamut volume is also quite impressive, coming in at 124%, 85.4%, and 87.8% for sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3.

Experience

  • First and foremost, consider how simple it is to set up. The ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD has nearly every input supported by modern GPUs. DVI-D, HDMI 1.4, and DisplayPort 1.2 are all supported, with the full 48 144 Hz refresh rate. If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, you should use the DP input because NVIDIA only supports G-SYNC Compatible over DP. Although the ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD is not on NVIDIA’s validated list of G-SYNC Compatible monitors, I have confirmed that G-SYNC Compatible can be used on this monitor.
  • The power adapter is not built into the monitor, which can be a plus because it eliminates the need to run a thick IEC C13 cord all the way to your monitor. Furthermore, replacing the external power adapter will be much less expensive than trying to find a new built-in power adapter for your specific monitor.
  • After you’ve got everything up and running, you might want to check out the OSD settings. The ViewSonic VX3211-4K-MHD we previously reviewed had a comically small OSD, whereas the ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD has a standard-sized one. It’s also much easier to navigate with the joystick, though there are some quirks in the OSD design. For example, tapping the joystick closes the menu, whereas moving it left applies. You’ll get the hang of it, but at first, I seriously doubted the sanity of the person in charge of designing the OSD here.
  • Enough with the hardware for the time being. In addition to the features of the monitor, ViewSonic allows you to use the ViewSplit software with it. It basically allows you to divide the display area more freely than Windows does. It’s a cool feature, but it’s likely to benefit larger monitors than the ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD.

Conclusion

The ViewSonic VX2458-C-MHD costs RM719 at ViewSonic’s LazMall Flagship Store, which is a bit high given its feature set. However, it is frequently available for much less, making it one of the most affordable curved 144 Hz gaming monitors on the market. It also has one of the widest gamuts we’ve seen in this price range, which is nice to have, though given that it’s a curved monitor, you won’t be using it for production work.
