iiyama G-Master Ultrawide Monitor Review (GB3466WQSU)

(REPOST FROM KIT GURU FOR IIYAMA) https://www.kitguru.net/


Ultrawide monitors have been around for a while now, but pricing has often been a significant deterrent to making the switch from a traditional 16:9 screen. That appears to be changing, however, as we first reviewed the £500 AOC CU34G2X back in January, and today we review iiyama’s G-Master GB3466WQSU – a 3440×1440 ultrawide with a 1500R curved VA panel and 144Hz refresh rate.



Of course, we have reviewed plenty of panels with a similar specification, but almost all are several hundred pounds more expensive. The real kicker for iiyama’s GB3466WQSU is the fact it is offering that 144Hz curved UWQHD goodness for £439, £60 less than the AOC CU34G2X. Usually ultrawides at this price-point have slower refresh rates (around 75-100Hz), or lower resolutions (like 2560×1080).

Alongside those key specs, the GB3466WQSU also supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, a claimed 400cd/m2 brightness as well as a claimed 1ms MPRT. Could this become the go-to option if you want a 21:9 monitor without spending over £500?
