Setup & General Usage
Getting the Viotek GFT27CXB setup is quite easy. Just plug it into power and use the included DisplayPort cable to connect it to your PC. Now just power your system on and the monitor and you should be good to go. Upon first inspection of the display there were no dead pixels at all. The colors on the display are quite vibrant, especially for a TN panel.
The first thing you are going to want to do is make sure that the monitor is running at 240 Hz. If you are running an NVIDIA graphics card, open up the NVIDIA control panel and go to the Change Resolution page. Here you can select between 60, 120, 144, and 240 Hz.
The GFT27CXB is a 27-inch monitor with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. While a typically prefer a 24-inch size for a 1080p monitor, the 27-inch size is pretty good. Sitting a typical distance away from the monitor things look great, it is only when you are sitting super-close that you’ll see individual pixels.
Bringing up the on-screen menu is done easily by pressing in the joystick on the rear of the monitor. All of the settings are very easy to find and change.
You can also bring up quick menus by pressing left, right, up or down on the joystick (without the on-screen menu up). Using these controls you can cycle through presets, turn game assist features on/off, switch the input, and adjust the volume.
Another thing you might want to turn on is FreeSync or G-SYNC. You can do this by bringing up the on-screen menu and navigating to Gaming Setup -> FreeSync/G-Sync and turning it on. Then go into the NVIDIA control panel and G-SYNC should be enabled.
The RGB ring on the back of the monitor is cool, but there is no way to control it. It is just either on or off.
