Japanese display manufacturer Iiyama has launched the ProLite XB2776QS, a 27" monitor featuring a LED backlit AH-IPS (advanced high performance in-plane-switching panel) that offers a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, 178°/178° (Horizontal/Vertical) viewing angles, a 5 ms response time and a brightness of 350 cd/m2.
The monitor features HDMI, DisplayPort and dual-link DVI inputs. It also includes 1.5 W stereo speakers, an adjustable height, and a rotating stand that allows the display to be viewed in a portrait orientation. The XB2776QS is rated for a typical power draw of 43 W, which can be further reduced to a minimum of 31.7 W when the device's EcoMode is enabled.
The Iiyama ProLite XB2776QS is expected to retail in early April 2013 with a suggested price of 65,800¥ or $686 USD.
