Pro Provides excellent viewing angles for a TN panel

The brightness under a horizontal viewing angle of 45° is superior compared to other displays with a reading of 56%. For comparison: similar TN-panels such as G-Master Red Eagle only score about 47% in this brightness test.
Pro Extremely sharp
The G-Master Gold Phoenix GB2888UHSU-B1 uses a 4K-display with a resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels, which is four times the amount of pixels of a Full HD display. This results in an extremely sharp image and overall great image quality. In terms of pixel density (measured in pixels per inch), the Gold Phoenix has 157 ppi, while a Full HD screen of the same size has a ppi of 78.
Con Low maximum refresh rate of 60 Hz, less ideal for fast-paced action
Compared to some other gaming monitors, the iiyama G-Master Gold Phoenix GB2888UHSU-B1 isn't as fast as some of its competitors. The maximum refresh rate is limited at 60 Hz, which is the industry standard for all monitors. Some fast-paced games greatly benefit from a higher refresh rate such as 120 or 144 Hz as it increases fluidity.
