One of the features we love on ViewSonic’s newer models is their Rampage Response tool that helps to eliminate ghosting. After testing numerous models that come with an Overdrive feature, we’ve found this brand’s implementation to be one of the best. Turning it up all the way to its max setting did not induce advanced ghosting in our tests, essentially eliminating all of the artifacts our eyes were able to notice.
