HEXUS.net gave this PC screen an "Approved" award and it received a "Good Product" award from Benchmark.pl.

Based on five expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus, Les Numeriques.com, erenumerique.fr and prad.de this PC display has an average expert rating of 72 out of 100.

Iiyama Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

On average iiyama medium monitors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PC screens produced by iiyama.

Good Size

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the HP 2211, or the Asus PB287 which is cheaper; or the DELL U2715H ($555.18) which has better reviews.

2560 X 1600 Pixels Display Resolution

The iiyama XB3070WQS has a maximum display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels LCD screen, which is the most common display resolution.

A 2560 x 1600 pixels display resolution is actually the best display resolution across all LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago.

A 1366 x 768 pixels display resolution is the worst display resolution across similar types of PC display.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XB3070WQS has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and type to the XB3070WQS do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV2736W ($869.99), and the Philips BDM4065UC which has better reviews; or the Neovo DR-22 which is cheaper are also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One customer who reviewed the product considered that it was not easy to use. Last year Hexus.net mentioned in their review on HEXUS.net “In practice the UHD resolution, 3,840x2,160 pixels, is impractical for professional usage since most productivity applications fa”.

Not Robust

One person who purchased the product concluded that it was not well made. Eddie said in his iiyama XB3070WQS review on Amazon “No dead pixels, no other visible defects, well put together frame/stand” and rated the product 1 stars.

Inferior Picture Quality

One iiyama XB3070WQS owner who reviewed the iiyama XB3070WQS considered that it did not have good colour saturation. Two years ago Digitalversus.com mentioned in their review on expert website Digital Versus “Unfortunately, some of the colours were pretty far off”.

One iiyama XB3070WQS owner who purchased this PC monitor wrote that it did not have image ghosting. This year Chris said in his review on Amazon “There is a little bit of noticable ghosting, so this monitor is not perfect for gaming.” although he rated it as excellent.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been available for around the same time as the XB3070WQS, the iiyama XB3070WQS is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung SMT-2232 ($549.99) which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The XB3070WQS is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Philips C272P4QPKEW which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC screens of this age and type do not have an integrated card reader. The XB3070WQS is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader which you might also want to consider including the UP2414Q, or the U3014 ($1,499.99) both from DELL or the Benq PG2401 ($749.99).

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

The XB3070WQS has a quite low maximum height adjustment (only 107 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the XB3070WQS. Across all the PC monitors of a comparable age and type to the XB3070WQS the maximum height adjustments range from 13mm to 850mm.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the PC displays of this age and type the weights range from 3g to 39kg. At 7.4 kilograms, the XB3070WQS is fairly heavy compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the XB3070WQS.
