Iiyama Announces ProLite XB2776QS 27-inch Monitor

Japanese display maker Iiyama announced the ProLite XB2776QS, a 27-inch PC monitor featuring an AH-IPS (advanced high-performance in-plane switching) panel. Featuring a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the LED-backlit LCD display offers 178°/178° (V/H) viewing angles, 5 ms response time, 350 cd/m² brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast ratio. It takes input from dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, and HDMI.

The ProLite XB2776QS features a typical power draw of 43W, which can be reduced by up to 26.3 percent using the EcoMode feature. Its stand allows for pivot (to portrait) and tilt. 1.5W stereo speakers come built in. Measuring 644 x 249.5 × 455.0 ~ 565.0 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 8.8 kg. Slated for early April, it is expected to be priced at 65,800¥ (US $686).

Lol at trying to read magazines and comics in portrait mode on a '27 screen.

You'd get neck ache from having to move your head up and down so much.

It's the reason I keep my old 5:4 '17 screen with portrait mode, it's the perfect size for reading such stuff.

So you want a 24-inch monitor with 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, 2 ms response time, and IPS, under $200. Not gonna happen any time soon.

Agreed, I'd like a 4k 120Hz monitor around 40" but would obviously not expect it for $200.

Maybe $1,500, i.e. a similar price point as we have been suffering since the 2560 x 1600 30"s came out first. I'm really hoping the 4k TVs will appear soon and maybe some bright company will put DP connectors on them and then they sell in volume so the price drops from the stratosphere in a reasonable time frame. I can dream! :laugh:

Give me a 2k x 2k screen at $1000 and I would buy it in a heatbeat.

Nice to see more competition in the 27" IPS WQHD market.

so you want a square screen?
I can't imagine how much problems you will have when no one will support that resolution. Besides scaling, prepare for a lot of black space.

The $400 premium over a cheap 27" screen gives you
1. 1440p instead of 1080p
2. IPS
3. 350 brightness instead of typical 250-300
4. 178 degrees viewing instead of typical 170
5. Pivot and tilt.

While i don't think all that is worth $686. I would not mind paying $500-550 for something like this as long as the quality is there. I also hope it is calibrated right instead of me spending more time or money calibrating it myself.
