Viewsonic outs 27-inch VX2703mh-LED monitor with 1080p, SRS Premium Sound

Some would say monitors aren't anywhere nearly as exciting as something like, say, a shiny new Galaxy S III or Google's novel slate, the popularly priced Nexus 7 -- but, you know, sometimes you just need to get some actual work done. And for those of you who are crazy about relatively large monitors, ViewSonic's unveiled its 27-inch VX2703mh-LED offering. Priced at $299, the ClearMotiv II display boasts a decent 1920 x 1080 resolution with a 10,000,000:1 MEGA Dynamic Contrast Ratio, built-in SRS Premium Sound speakers, as well as DVI, VGA and HDMI ports. Equally important, the outfit's touting the screen's eco-friendly features, with a mercury-free LED backlighting, an ECO-Mode setting and, naturally, a power-saving feature to help keep that monthly electricity bill to a minimum. The VX2703mh-LED is expected to hit North American shelves later this month; in the meantime, you can check the gallery after the break to gaze at it from mostly every angle.
