Exploring 27″ Iiyama G-MASTER GB2760HSU-B1

Exploring 27″ Iiyama G-MASTER GB2760HSU-B1 may not be a big deal to those who have become regulars by virtue of their constant patronage of this very wonderful product; and evidently, it is stocked in their offices and homes at the same time.

Iiyama Brand

The Iiyama company is a brand name of Mouse Computer Corporation which produces liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors and LED display panels. It was previously an independent Japanese computer electronics company called Iiyama Corporation with its headquarters in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.

Iiyama was founded in 1972 by Kazuro Katsuyama, named after the city of Iiyama in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. The company was bought in January 2006 by MCJ Corporation, which includes Mouse Computer Corporation. The headquarters of iiyama was moved to Europe in October 2008. The CEO since January 2006 has been Takeichi Shinji.

A lot of questions such as whether to G-Sync or not to G-Sync usually pop up when buying a gaming monitor these days, especially when cheaper AMD FreeSync monitors such as the Iiyama G-Master GB2760HSU on test today can now also take advantage of a watered down G-Sync-esque experience thanks to Nvidia finally opening up their variable refresh rate standard at the beginning of the year.

A Quality to Live With

The G-Sync stuff is all good news, but as you can see from that specs table over there, the GB2760HSU does come with one big caveat – and that’s its resolution of 1920×1080. Spread across a 27in panel, this is something that really bucks up against what I consider an acceptable pixel density these days and, for me at least, it does detract from the monitor’s overall appeal as a result.

Fortunately, the GB2760HSU does come in a 27in, 2560×1440 model (the GB2760QSU), as well as a smaller, 24in version with the same 1920×1080 resolution (the GB2560HSU). Without having tested these models myself, however, it’s hard to say whether they’ll offer a similar, worse or even better G-Sync experience when paired with an Nvidia graphics card.
