For many months I had been thinking about buying a bigger monitor, primarily so that I get a better view of the cycling videos I use on my Tacx smart trainer. But also because it can be handy to open documents side by side. I have had good experiences with iiyama monitors before, so when this came along on offer at CCL, I decided to go for it. I use this as a second screen with my laptop (Lenovo X1 carbon), and after testing at work I knew the laptop could cope with displaying this many pixels. I imagine it would struggle with a 4K monitor.
The monitor arrived quickly, and was very easy to setup. I use an HDMI cable to plug it into my laptop. The colours are pretty good straight from the box, and it works well for the two things I wanted it for: the videos are nice to watch in bigger format, and I can now easily have two documents open side by side. For this money definitely a good buy.
