The ViewSonic XG2402 is a decent TN monitor. Thanks to the high 144 Hz refresh rate and the support of FreeSync VRR it is ideal as a game monitor. Thanks to the exceptionally fast response time, it has excellent motion handling. Motion blur is almost impossible. Unfortunately, due to the disappointing natural contrast and insufficient black uniformity, it is not well suited for dark rooms and the viewing angle is poor. Therefore, it is best for viewing from the front.

Design

The ViewSonic XG2402 has a good design. It is almost entirely made of plastic, but feels good and is quite solid. The stand is not very fancy, but it supports the monitor well and offers excellent ergonomics. Unfortunately, cable management does not help much. The monitor is quite thick, but this should not cause any problems.

Picture Quality

The ViewSonic XG2402 offers only good picture quality. In dark rooms it is not very good due to the disappointing contrast and the poor black uniformity. It has good top brightness and good reflection, ideal for a bright office. The viewing angle is disappointing, so the picture is most accurate right from the front.

Motion

The ViewSonic XG2402 provides excellent motion handling. It has an impressive fast response time and the movement is crystal clear, with almost no apparent blur. The backlight is free of PWM flicker, which is great, but there is no option to flicker. It has an excellent 144 Hz refresh rate and a large FreeSync VRR range when connected via HDMI or DisplayPort.

Inputs

The ViewSonic XG2402 has a very low input delay and is great for gaming. Unfortunately, it only has a resolution of 1080p and a 24-inch screen, which can be disappointing for some users. It has a good selection of inputs and can be used as a USB hub.

Features

The ViewSonic XG2402 has some basic additional features. It has built-in speakers, but does not support HDR. There are no overlay options for displaying the frame rate or a crosshair while playing. The OSD has many options, but the layout is interwoven and can be difficult to navigate.
