Good Brand

Iiyama is one of the better rated PC screen brands according to average user and expert reviews, and iiyama also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who bought the product said that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

One iiyama XB2776QS reviewer considered that the iiyama XB2776QS was good quality. Four years ago Techradar.com said on Techradar “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.”.

Good Technical Features

One iiyama XB2776QS reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it had good features. Four years ago Digitalversus.com wrote “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”.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XB2776QS has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Quite Wide Viewing Angle, Vertical

Flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the XB2776QS have viewing angle, verticals of between 15° and 180°. The XB2776QS has a quite wide viewing angle, vertical (178 degrees) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the XB2776QS.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The dimmest display brightness of similar spec PC monitors that were launched more than two years ago is 25 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m². The XB2776QS has a quite bright display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Viewable Size, Horizontal

The viewable size, horizontals of PC monitors of this spec and age range from 1mm to 880mm, and the average viewable size, horizontal is 520mm. With a viewable size, horizontal of 596.7 millimeters, the XB2776QS has one of the bigger viewable size, horizontals amongst PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D

The XB2776QS is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the XB2776QS are also not 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other similar spec PC screens that were released around the same time as the XB2776QS, the XB2776QS does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The XB2776QS does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors with a card reader integrated and we think the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

Medium monitors that came out around the same time as the XB2776QS have RMS rated powers of between 0.5W and 49W, and the average RMS rated power is 5.5W. With an RMS rated power of only 1.5 Watts, the XB2776QS has one of the lowest RMS rated powers amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Height Adjustment

Across all the PC displays that came out more than two years ago the height adjustments range from 13mm to 1,200mm. The XB2776QS has one of the lower height adjustments (only 110 millimeters) amongst LCD screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

PC displays that were released around the same time as the XB2776QS have weights of between 3g and 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The XB2776QS is one of the heavier medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XB2776QS (8.8 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the iiyama XB2776QS

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when iiyama released the XB2776QS.

Running Costs Are OK

The XB2776QS has an average running cost of £69 over 5 years based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 993 PC monitors of this spec and age.

Chart

LCD Display

The XB2776QS has a better display type than most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it. This PC screen has an LCD display, whereas most PC displays that were released around the same time as it have an LED display.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LCD Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Eizo ColorEdge CX240[plb_1815196_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

LCD screens with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.

I've been using one of these for a few months now. I'm a digital photography hobbyist, and not a gamer, so I can't talk about response-time, but I can say that the IPS screen is delivering... Read more…
