Iiyama releases their 5K XB2779QQS monitor for €799

Iiyama have launched their latest 5K 60Hz display, delivering users a high-quality IPS panel in a standard 16:9 27-inch form factor. With a price tag of €799, the ProLite XB2779QQS will be a costly purchase, offering 8-bit colour, a 1200:1 contrast ratio and a maximum brightness of 440 cd/m^2, let's be clear, this is not an HDR panel. 

This display will utilise DisplayPort 1.3 to offer a maximum resolution of 5K with a refresh rate of 60Hz, with three additional HDMI connections that can provide a limited resolution of 4K 60Hz. Early 5K displays required two DisplayPort 1.2 cables to function at this resolution/refresh rate, with DisplayPort 1.3 making this panel much easier to use.

The only major downside of this display is also one of its greatest strengths, as this display's high pixel density will make this panel's resolution difficult to utilise. Will users be able to increase their productivity using a 5K screen this small?

It's okay. The scaling doesn't always work right. Certainly better than Windows 7/8.1. Those were just awfulQuote

4k on anything under 32* is just a waste for me. Its a bit like having 1440p at 24*. Just too small.Quote
