The new Blur Busters Approved firmware is automatically downloaded via the ViewSonic Elite Display Controller software.

ELITE Display Controller Software
The ELITE Display Controller software makes it easy to adjust monitor settings and ELITE RGB lighting, all in one application. Gamers can customize and quickly change between display modes, choose from a wide selection of native RGB settings and sync their RGB lighting with ELITE RGB Alliance partnered software, like Razer Chroma and TT RGB Plus by Thermaltake. The ELITE Display Controller fully supports the XG270QG, XG270 and XG270QC, allowing users to customize their in-room ambience with an updated static color customization menu, supporting more than one thousand different color choices.

I'm really digging the aesthetics of it as in not RGB, but not over "gamer" gimmicky. Price ain't shabby too, wondering what OEM panel is it?

I'm losing track of new FreeSync versions. 'Premium Pro' - what could this be?

Cannot understand why ViewSonic and BlurBuster not yet made PureXP in combination with adaptive sync.

I now own an ASUS ELMB-Sync monitor and once you start using it there is no going back.

Tried gaming FPS on my old ASUS PG279Q and could not do it, it was all smeary and very bad compared to my ELMB-Sync monitor.

Like the specs, but hate the design and the useless dumb gimmicks on it.

Hate the design. Probably it will be some kind of cheap looking plastic. Design-wise most brands should just copy Dell monitors. I think they just look the best.

That's why I love my Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD :)

I bet it will not have sRGB mode and thus will be useless for photoediting just like everything else on the market.
