Digital Camera World Verdict

The ViewSonic ColorPro VP2786-4K is a stunning screen for creatives and imaging enthusiasts Not only does it offer top-line screen specs, including excellent coverage of even wide color gamuts and a razor-sharp 4K resolution, you also get superb color accuracy as well as factory color calibration. Inclusions like the versatile ColorPro wheel remote controller, rear-facing backlight and shading hood are also welcome. The only noteworthy downside here is the somewhat disappointing brightness and color uniformity across the screen area, though this is hard to spot with the naked eye. Otherwise, the VP2786-4K is a great choice for videographers working with 4K footage.

In July 2022 we reviewed Viewsonic's excellent ColorPro VP2776 and found it to be a superb monitor for creatives and imaging enthusiasts. It wasn't quite perfect though - a sub-4K (2560 x 1440, QHD) resolution) was disappointing when 4K monitors are now becoming the norm, and it's coverage of the Adobe RGB color space was relatively poor. However, it seems someone at Viewsonic took note of our criticisms and now we have a new, improved revision, the ColorPro VP2786-4K.
