iiyama's new curved monitor looks to be quite versatile. In addition to the large display area, it also brings a decent refresh rate in a VA panel and pairs a KVM switch, making the new monitor useful for gaming as well as work.
The iiyama Prolite XCB3494WQSN has a 34-inch VA panel with a 1500R curvature, 120Hz refresh rate, 0.4ms MPRT, and 3440×1440 resolution (21:9 aspect ratio). Like most VA panels, it has a decent contrast ratio of 3000:1, but the brightness is only 300 nits (typical). In addition, the panel has an 8-bit colour depth and covers 99% of the sRGB colour spectrum and 82% of the NTSC gamut.
Image quality and colour can be adjusted using multiple tools featured in the OSD. These include a black tuner, a 6-axis colour adjustment tool, and gamma settings. The monitor also supports AMD FreeSync Premium and features multiple colours presets to try, including a low blue light mode to prevent eye strain.
The monitor has an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, a headphone connector, and a USB-C 3.0 port with 65W power delivery and DP alt mode. Moreover, it features 2x 2W speakers, a LAN port, a USB hub with 3x USB-A 3.0 ports, and a KVM switch. With the latter, you may connect peripherals to the USB ports and use them on two PCs connected to the monitor with a simple change of a setting on the OSD menu.
