The Iiyama ProLite E2472HDD performed exceptionally well during our testing and while there are always going to be some viewing angle issues with a TN panel we found the ProLite was really well optimised out of the box and only required some minor adjustments to reach full potential.
The backlighting quality is exceptionally well balanced across the whole area of the panel and colour rendition, while not class leading is focused and tightly saturated. We found a slight adjustment was needed to remove a little blue from the overall image, but once this was in place we were happy with the overall image quality on a variety of levels.
Firstly, for typographers and people who spend most of their time on forums and reading editorial, at native 1920×1080 the screen was a pleasure to use, with crystal clear text even at the smallest of pixel sizes. Photographic quality is good, but not exceptional – with a little calibration it would be perfectly usable as a cheap, entry level photo editing tool, but hardcore designers will need to dig a little deeper into their pockets for the best partner.
Gaming is exceptional on the E2472HDD screen, and while it won’t always resolve shadow detail to the same level as a more expensive panel, the overall quality certainly is hard to fault. The 2ms refresh rate means that there is no noticeable smearing with fast moving first person shooters.
Power consumption is class leading, with the screen consuming less than 20w after calibration, this is one of the lowest figures we have recorded for a 24 inch screen … the LED technology is showing its true worth in this regard.
KitGuru says: Checking stores in the UK we were able to find this panel for £165 inc vat which makes this an incredible bargain for a high performing LED screen.
