Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS review

£205 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Iiyama

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

With a 16:9 aspect ratio, the 24in Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS flatpanel monitor is well set up for high-definition television.

With a 16:9 aspect ratio, the 24in Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS flatpanel monitor is well set up for high-definition television.

The Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS will work fantastically with any games console or Blu-ray player and you won't need to interfere with the image in order to make it fit into the space.

It can still reach a very strong resolution of 1,920x1,080, despite being a 'mere' 24in screen. The Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS offers a wider screen area than the sub-£200 22in models we've tested.

The Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS is no looker, however - its plastic exterior is something of a jumble of peculiar ridges and contrasting finishes. Its extra features aren't plentiful either: you get a trio of video connectors - RGB, DVI and HDMI but no speaker or USB ports.

The menu system is reasonably simple, although we found ourselves squinting in order to see exactly what each button was for. You have plenty of control over the colour palette, though, and we liked the fact you can select different colour modes without being forced to go through the main menu.

A number of the Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS's specifications are rather optimistic.

The high viewing angles are laughable, since the Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS does deteriorate quickly if you're not sitting directly in front of it. And the potential contrast ratio of 10,000:1 is clearly a non-starter.

The 2ms response rate seemed to have some merit though, and we can't fault the Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS's fluidity in games.

But let's not carp too much about the Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS's specifications. Viewed in its own right, the Iiyama is actually a very good screen. Graphics images are vibrant and colourful, and text is sharp - although, it must again be stressed, you do need to be sitting right in front of the flat-panel.

Inexpensive and a solid performer, the Iiyama ProLite E2407HDS is a commendable flatscreen monitor. Provided you're not a graphics professional, you'll find this to be a very creditable model for the money.

    The Iiyama ProLite E1902S, however, is far from the cheapest 19in LCD screen available – you can actually get the odd 22in model for less than the cost of this flat-panel.

    Can an expansive 27in monitor for just £249 be a good buy? In the case of the Iiyama ProLite E2710HDS, possibly.

    Iiyama ProLite B2403WS 24in flat-panel display

    Only a few months ago, £500-£600 was a typical price for a 24in flat-panel. At £458, the ViewSonic VX2435wm seemed something of a bargain. But nothing can compare to the Iiyama ProLite B2403WS.

    Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS

    High-definition monitors now come in smaller sizes - witness the highly affordable 22in Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS LCD display.

  • Iiyama ProLite E2607WS review

    Iiyama ProLite E2607WS

    Iiyama has become more of a consumer screen manufacturer of late, but on the evidence of the budget 26in Iiyama ProLite E2607WS, some of the professional quality remains.
