Viotek GFT27CXB Overview
The first thing I noticed about the Viotek GFT27CXB when I took it out of the box was that the stand was already connected, this makes setup so much easier. The display is pretty much all black with a white Viotek logo on the bottom bezel and a small red accent on the stand. It sort of looks like your typical monitor. The monitor is not curved and has super-thin bezels on the sides and top, even the bottom bezel is pretty thin.
The monitor itself is pretty thin and the stand is not all that large either so you shouldn’t have any issue getting the GFT27CXB to fit on your desk.
Looking at the monitor from the back there is a large Viotek logo towards the top. There is an RGB ring that goes around VESA mount, we’ll see this lit up a little later in the review. As I mentioned the stand was already connected to the monitor, but it does support typical 75 x 75 and 100 x 100 VESA mounts if you wanted to put it on an arm or wall mount it.
On the back of the monitor you’ll find a joystick on one side and a Kensington lock port on the other side. The joystick is used to navigate the OSD on the monitor to make changes. We definitely prefer a joystick over the typical 3-4 menu buttons.
The stand does offer a small clip for cable management. As far as connections on the monitor you have DisplayPort, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, a 3.5mm audio jack, USB port, and small power connection. The USB port on the monitor is made to update the firmware, it is not a USB pass-through or anything like that. The 3.5mm audio jack is for headphones.
The stand offers quite a lot of flexibility, you can adjust the height of the display as well as swivel the display up to 30 degrees.
Another thing the stand offers, which you don’t see as much these days is the ability to go into portrait mode.
