If you are a student or working professional by day and an avid gamer by night, finding the perfect monitor can be a challenge. Work-and-play monitors allow you to view multiple spreadsheets or design layouts at once. They also double as great additions to your PC gaming setup and lend a more cinematic quality to your videos. iiyama has a wide range of these hybrid monitors for you to choose from. Here is a quick guide featuring some of the most ideal iiyama desktops with all the important specifications to help make your decision easier.


First up, is the PROLITE XUB2796HSU-B1 which combines both business and gaming features, to give you the best of both worlds. The IPS panel technology offers accurate and consistent colour reproduction with wide viewing angles. It features a 13cm stand which enables you to adjust the height and rotate the screen, making it suitable for applications and environments where workplace flexibility and ergonomics are key factors. If you are an avid gamer, you will appreciate the 1ms response time, FreeSync and Black Tuner features which give you smooth graphics and keep you ahead of the competition. The ProLite XUB2796HSU, is a full HD (1920 x 1080) model, but in case you are big on videos or a content creator, you can also consider the PROLITE XUB2796QSU-B1 which is an excellent WQHD (2560 x 1440) monitor.

Equipped with a USB-C dock connector, the PROLITE XUB2492HSN is the perfect desktop for you if you are a stickler for a clean organised workspace. It allows you to simplify your desk by using a single cable to both send signal from your notebook to your monitor and power and charge the notebook from the monitor.

It also features IPS panel for wide viewing angles and accurate colour reproduction to give you vivid battle ground screens. If you are looking for a slightly larger screen, it is also available in 27”.

The PROLITE XUB3493WQSU is a 34” LED monitor also featuring IPS Panel technology, which is considered the best all round panel type. It offers accurate and consistent colour reproduction with wide viewing angles and a fast response time of 4ms. UWQHD (Ultra-Wide QHD) resolution offers an aspect ratio of 21:9 delivering an ultra-wide viewable area, especially beneficial when gaming to ensure you do not miss a thing. The large amount of space and good pixel density offered by the size and resolution of this screen provides immense potential on the desktop. Therefor it is perfect whether you are a working professional and want to use multiple applications sides by side or after work watch movies or enrich your gaming experience.

The 93 series desktop range is also available with 24” and 28” dimensions. Monitor resolution is usually one of the first specifications considered when shopping for a new monitor. Higher the pixel density, higher the resolution. The PROLITE XUB2493HSU-B1 is a 24” Full HD screen. The PROLITE XUB2893UHSU-B1 is a 28” screen with 4K resolution, allowing you to display 4 times more detail than on a Full HD monitor.
