The iiyama G-Master GB3266QSU monitor (£366) combines a large 32-inch screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and a high-contrast VA panel. The end result should be ideal for up-close gaming and desktop use, as well as sitting back and enjoying fantastic-looking video and games.
When it comes to styling, though, the all-black plastic construction tips towards mundane and utilitarian rather than minimalist sleekness. That said, the curve of its impressively slim panel does give it a certain elegance. That curve also helps ensure you get an optimal viewing angle, even for the edges of the screen, which is a legitimate concern for a panel this size.
While it may not have a flashy design, this display houses an impressive feature set. The stand offers height, pivot, rotation, and tilt adjustment, while around the back are four video inputs, consisting of two DisplayPort and two HDMI inputs (one is limited to 75Hz at the screen’s full resolution). Four is the magic number for USB ports too, with two USB 3 and two USB 2 sockets. Add a headphone jack and two 5W speakers that sound better than the typical 2-3W speakers and you’re left wanting for little.
