Iiyama Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

Iiyama medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC screens iiyama is one of the superior manufacturers.

Good Picture Quality

One iiyama XB2776QS reviewer who purchased this PC monitor reckoned that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One iiyama XB2776QS owner who purchased the product concluded that it was good quality. Expert review site Techradar.com mentioned “Luckily for Iiyama's latest 27-incher we weren't expecting anything terribly special when we unpacked it, so its awesome image quality adds an extra dimension.” in their review of the iiyama XB2776QS.

Good Technical Features

One iiyama XB2776QS reviewer wrote in their reviews that it had good features. Expert review site Digitalversus.com mentioned “The Iiyama ProLite XB2776QS just managed to scrape its way to a five-star score! It has a great set of hardware features, colour fidelity is excellent” in their review of the iiyama XB2776QS.

Price Has Dropped by £60.94

In the last few days the XB2776QS has dropped in price by £60.94.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XB2776QS has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper PC screens such as the 298P4 (£467.45), or the BDM3470UP (£434.68) both from Philips.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Philips BDM4065UC (£519.99) is also worth considering.

Average Running Costs

The average running cost of the XB2776QS is £69 over 5 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 998 PC displays of this spec and age.

Chart

LCD Display Type

The iiyama XB2776QS has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most LCD screens of a similar age and type to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays that have an LCD Display currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Philips 298P4 (£467.45), or the Eizo ColorEdge CS230 (£426.99) or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the Benq PG2401 (£599.00).

If the display type of this PC display is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Viewsonic VP2770 (£424.92) (LED and cheaper), or the Philips 272G5DYEB (LED and cheaper).
