The first thing I noticed after taking it out of the box was the outstanding build quality. Everything is robust , yet slimline with an elegant and aesthetically beautiful design. The base weighs an absolute ton with good suction. So far this has not moved so much as a millimeter. All menu buttons and the power indicator have a discreet profile. Cable management is good and attachment is again discreet and solid. It is obvious iiyama have really put a lot of thought into the design and usage of this monitor.
There is no save feature but menu navigation is a breeze due to the logical and neat layout saving time. Picture quality is stunning with crisp and vibrant true HD natural colours. The brightness and blue light reduction have a very impressive range of adjustments catering for lots of environments. I have not noticed any bleed or distortion at all. Even though this is a VA monitor the views from various angles are extremely good and the screen fits into the frame perfectly with no visible gaps.
As this is the XB model the stand has full height and rotation on every axis which is very smooth. However I would suggest not using the cable management if utilising portrait mode as the cable may snag. I bought my monitor for home use , some office applications , web browsing , games and film viewing. It has performed above and beyond my expectations in everything. I would highly recommend this monitor.
