Product Information

Sleek and stylish 27” AH-IPS LED-backlit screen with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and a height adjustable stand

Featuring WQHD (2560 x 1440)  resolution, the XB2779QS can display almost 77% more information on the screen than a Full HD display. Users can create their own workspace by displaying and manipulating multiple applications at the same time. The AH-IPS matrix guarantees high performance with accurate and consistent colour reproduction, wide viewing angles and a fast response time. An array of inputs including HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and VGA connections ensures compatibility across a wide range of mulitimedia devices. The XB2779QS is perfect for demanding users who settle only for the best specifications and modern design.

With true WQHD 2560 x 1440p resolution your monitor is ready to display high definition images. This means you can accommodate more information on your screen, i.e. over 76% more in comparison to a 1920 x 1080 monitor.

The AH-IPS panel technology guarantees consistent colour reproduction with wide viewing angles and high contrast and therefore it is especially recommended for graphics design and other applications which require colours to be displayed accurately. The response time of the panel allows for smooth playback while watching films and playing games, making the IPS the best all-round technology suitable for both business and home use.

A typical CCFL LCD uses four backlight lamps. Using LED diodes considerably lowers the power consumption and reduces the CO2 emission into the environment making this LCD a true ECO-Friendly product.

Contrast Ratio is a measurement of the difference between the darkest black and the brightest white your monitor can display. Advanced Contrast Ratio is a feature that automatically adjusts contrast and brightness of the screen to assure perfect picture quality while watching films and playing games.

HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. Much smaller and more convenient than DVI, HDMI also has the significant advantage over DVI that it supports audio as well as video signals

A Height Adjustable Stand allows you to set the perfect position of the screen ensuring ergonomic posture and optimal viewing comfort which benefits not only your health but also productivity.

I bought this product after reading other reviews and was not disappointed. It is used primarily in image processing through Photoshop and Lightroom 4. The brightness for this is way to high but is easily adjusted with the controls and calibrated with a Spyder
Remember to use the DVI lead that comes with the monitor. I used the one that I unplugged from the old monitor and wondered why the iiyama didn't work at full resolution. The new lead has extra pins!

The speakers are no substitute for proper desk top speakers
