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

The XB3070WQS is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC screens that are a comparable age to the XB3070WQS are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Philips 272G5DYEB/93[plb_3175233_price] or the Samsung SMT-2232[plb_1414672_price].

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider including the Philips C272P4QPKEW/75[plb_3027868_price] which is also cheaper.

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the XB3070WQS, the XB3070WQS does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the U3014[pl_1655695_price] both from DELL or the Benq BL3201[plb_2558150_price] is also worth considering.
