Iiyama ProLite E2472HDD Review – LED for the masses

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru loves a high quality LED backlit screen and with pricing continually dropping they are now firmly in the grasp of the mainstream audience. Unfortunately while LED television screens are normally much better than traditional CCFL models we have found at KitGuru that buying an LED monitor for your computer doesn’t always translate to a significant jump in quality.

Today we are looking at the Ilyama ProLite E2472HDD which is an affordable LED backlit 24 inch screen and hopefully it will fare well during our testing. The E2472HDD is for all intents and purposes identical to the more commonplace ‘E2472HD’ model, except it loses an HDMI port, falling back on a dual port VGA and DVI configuration.

    I dont think people appreciate how well priced technology is today. this is amazing value, 160 quid? bloody hell.

  • Tim

    What a great price. I see them for 200 euros here locally.

  • Raymond

    wow, just wow. LED, DVI. at that price. I know there are a few others, but I never know illyama did them so cheap at this size. do they do a 1920×1200 model?

  • Tri Color

    Well this looks to be quite the deal. im in the mode for some sapphire HD5770 flex loving, might pick three of these up.

  • Tech head

    LED is such a good technology for low power consumption, thats an impressive budget panel.

  • Sam

    Well this is interesting. i didnt know LED screens had dropped so low in price recently.

  • Terry

  • Eric K

    very good screen but I think samsung make a similar panel at close pricing, its meant to be better.

  • Death Dealer

    I think the model you mean Eric is the XL2370 23″ and its much more expensive.

  • Rockstar

    My daily trip to kitguru, news and hot reviews. this is a sexy looking value screen. 2ms? very nice.

  • Jim

    Well tickle me with a toothbrush and cover me in vegetable oil. This is very good for the money. Seems only minor weaknesses for the pricing point.
