Iiyama Red Eagle G-MASTER GB2760QSU-B1 27in 144Hz Monitor Review

The Iiyama Red Eagle G-MASTER GB2760QSU-B1 comes in a considerably more exciting box than its professional siblings, sporting a the head of a futuristic power-armoured figure instead of a picture of the monitor.

 

Inside, alongside a power cord, you get DisplayPort and HDMI cables plus upstream wiring for the USB hub.

As with other Red Eagle G-MASTER monitors, the overall design motif is serious blackness. The appearance isn’t as funky as some gaming screens, but has a reassuringly solid build.

The physical adjustment possibilities are comprehensive. You can raise the screen up and down by 130mm, and rotate it 45 degrees left or right. The tilt angle is up to five degrees forward or 22 degrees backward.

You can also rotate the screen into portrait mode, just in case you want to use this screen to read a full-page document all at once.

Next to the power socket are audio minijacks for headphones and analog input (presumably for when you’re using the DVI connection). We would always prefer the headphone jack in a more convenient location than this. Next along, the other side of the stand, are the video connections, including DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. Finally, there’s the upstream USB 3.0 port.

The two downstream USB 3.0 ports are on the side, which is a sensible and convenient place for them, although we would have been happier with more than just two, and for the headphone jack to be located here.

The onscreen menu is controlled with six buttons along the bottom right of the screen, which are clearly labelled on the front. This is decidedly retro now we see joysticks on so many screens, but it’s a perfectly functional system.
