  • Summary: I buy allot of monitors. Usually i stick to brands like samsung and LG. They are good quality and provide a good ROI. I saw this monitor on offer. Its High Res and nice looks got me interested so i read around and reviews were generally good so i took the plunge. Amazon delivered it the next day and upon opening the box and inspecting the build quality i was shocked at the materials used.

Awesome 2560x1440 27 inch display

Robert, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Delivered quickly and without any damage to the packaging. I installed it very easily and even on VGA the colours and resolution bear no comparison to my old 1280x1024 Dell. It's big enough to have two jobs on the go at once without feeling any constraint, and much more flexible than two smaller displays. On displayport in full resolution it is a joy. The sound is OK, a bit quiet, but what's pleasant is the complete lack of hiss even on the 3.5mm jack connection.

Iiyama Prolite XB2779QS-B1 27 Inch WQHD Monitor - Black

Roger, novatech.co.uk
1 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I agonised long and hard over whether the enormous price hike for a 2560x1440 resolution monitor could ever be worth it, especially when you can have 2 'normal' monitors of the same size for a lot less money! In the end though, I bit the bullet and opted to buy this monitor and wow, what a display. It sits alongside a 27" LG IPS monitor which I only bought from Novatech a few months back.

Excellent monitor !

Cordyline "Indiana", Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this model through Amazon but not from this supplier. My old tower PC does not have the modern terminals so I have to use the VGA cable from my old Iiyama 17 inch. Reduced brightness to 80% and all is fine. The touch-screen adjustments; bottom right are not to my liking, I can hardly see them !

Superb monitor

Mr. Elton V. Thomas "elton", Amazon

  • Summary: Only had the monitor for a few days but absolutely love it. Easy to adjust and with a fabulous resolution, this monitor will be hard to beat. I did consider an import from Korea which was considerably cheaper but all the hassle of import duties, taxes, VAT etc put me off. Plus if it needed returning ... lets not go there! Movies look superb on the Iiyama and as a work station you can get so much on the screen at the same time.

Very impressed!

Seve Noaks, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: It is true, I am not the authority on 27inch monitors, but I have to say that I am well impressed with the Iiyama XB2779QS. Ok if you have the cash you will probably go for the Apple display, but at about half the price this Iiyama gives a fabulous image & looks good. I use it via mini display port (essential to get the maximum resolution - HDMI will not facilitate) from my MacBook pro with Retina - they compliment each other so well.

Wow - Just WOW!

Mr. A. STONE, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I have been looking for a 27 inch monitor for a while now and really wanted a higher resolution than the standard but didn't want to pay the super high prices of the Apple display or the Dell equivalent This is just amazing! Very sharp, fast and perfect for pictures. I am what you might call a happy amateur photographer and this has brought new life to my images. Out of the box it's almost perfect if a little bright but a few easy changes and it's spot on!

Iiyama Prolite XB2779QS-S1 27 Inch WQHD Monitor - Silver

Matt, novatech.co.uk
27 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Purchased this monitor for work, mainly gfx, film and animation. All i can say is wow, very impressed with it. Colours are outstanding, much more vivid and bright than the 27" 1920x1080 ProLite i have at home. TBH when i arrive at work in the morning i never get tired of looking at it. The surround, buttons, and all other features are a joy to operate and have that 'polished' feel to them.

Iiyama Prolite XB2779QS-S1 27 Inch WQHD Monitor - Silver

Roger, novatech.co.uk
27 November 2013
  • Conclusion: I actually bought the version with the black panel along the bottom of the display but as everything else is identical I have copied the review to this version for those looking at this version...... I agonised long and hard over whether the enormous price hike for a 2560x1440 resolution monitor could ever be worth it, especially when you can have 2 'normal' monitors of the same size for a lot less money!
