Iiyama has long been a popular brand amongst professionals, thanks to its focus on quality. The XUB2792UHSU might look like an ordinary 27in screen, but it’s based around an IPS panel with a 4K 3840 x 2160 resolution. So it has serious potential for quality content creation work, where colour accuracy and detail are paramount.
The basic specification is fairly standard for an IPS panel. The maximum brightness is a regular 300cd/m2, with 1,000:1 contrast and a 4ms grey-to-grey pixel response time. However, the 3840 x 2160 resolution and very thin bezel along three edges are more premium features.
Most standard video connections are catered for, including legacy DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI, but no ultra-modern Thunderbolt USB-C. You do get a USB 3.0 hub, albeit with just two ports. There’s a pair of 2W speakers, in case you don’t have any standalone speakers to hand.
There’s a full range of adjustments available, including height, swivel, tilt, and rotation by 90 degrees. With a price between £350 and £400, this screen isn’t even that expensive for a 4K professional model. Most 27in 4K screens are more expensive this, even when not aimed at professionals, so let’s delve into the details.
