There are cheaper 24in monitors than Iiyama's B2409HDS, but none we've seen that match it for value. The B in the name stands for business, but don't discount it for home use. The 1,920x1,080 resolution means it has a 16:9 aspect ratio and, along with the HDMI input, it's well equipped for HD video display.
The differences between this model and the E2407HDS are fairly minimal. The B2409HDS has a more versatile stand that tilts, swivels and can be raised by 110mm. It also pivots to portrait mode, which can be usefulfor working on long documents. The design is slightly curvier, too, although the exclusive use of matt black plastic means it's not as stylish as it could be. Finally, the dynamic contrast ratio has been increased from 10,000:1 to 20,000:1.
The actual contrast ratio is a far lower 1,000:1, and in our tests the B2409HDS looked virtually identical to its cheaper brother. The backlighting is even, though, and there was no blue tint to mono images as with the E2407HDS. Colours were accurate, with no ghosting or juddering. Viewing angles aren't great, with whites turning yellow when you're more than 30? off-centre.
Power consumption is low at just 40W, but the three Eco modes can reduce this to just 19W. We found the -10W setting was the best compromise, with good brightness, but a power draw of just 31W. There are also standard, text, game, internet, movie and sports mode presets.
The B2409HDS is backed by Iiyama's three-year onsite warranty. Combine this with the stand's adjustability and good image quality, and this is a great-value monitor. If you can live with its looks, it's a great buy.

20,000:1, eh? Impressive. I wonder what technique they used to get that sort of a contrast ratio out of it.

Don't forget the massive 0.5% Quidco

Don't forget the massive 0.5% Quidco



Or maybe a better alternative of "2 Nectar points per £1" at Nectar's eStores
nectar.com/dyn…lay

so as 500 points = £2.50 (eg at Argos), 2 points is worth 1p ie 1% :thumbsup:
but occasional/restricted offers make the points worth more than that too
whereas Quidco cash is only ever worth its 'face value'

MONITOR WISE: This is also one of the relatively few monitors that PIVOT - ie can swap between vertical (for A4 documents) and horizontal (for spreadsheeting/DVDs).

Shame it's not 1920 x 1200, I can't go any lower than that now after using it for so long.

so 1920 x 1080 isn't enough?

The static contrast ratio is 1,000:1 according to this review: expertreviews.co.uk/rev…tml

Nice wikipedia link that explains the difference between static and dynamic en.wikipedia.org/wik…tio

My cheap 22" samsung also has a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, but only 8000:1 dynamic.

Most people seem to think the dynamic ratio is a bit of a marketing ploy, its usually a much higher number so "looks" better to most people.

Anyone actually have one of these? Seems like a pretty good spec for the money

am defo interested as I have a blu ray in my pc and its so far been connected to a 32" LCD at 720p
be interested in seeing if its true that you cannot distinguish the difference in 720 and 1080 on smaller screens

lol, it's enough for 95% of people, and anyone who just wants enough to watch HD. But I enjoy playing games at this high resolution and value the extra real estate it gives me on my desktop.

Just personal preference, I've used a 24" like that for over a year now and downsizing to 1080 would be silly for me.

Agreed :thumbsup:, I have four 24" monitors all at 1920x1200 and I wouldn't dream of going doen to 1080, I don't even know why they use this silly resolution on Monitors, surely it only benefits sales patter, ie 'yes it's Full HD'

donslibi;5106946

No, try the difference on a monitor and you'll see what we mean

Oh yeah, I have a 1920x1280 monitor and I'm far more often limited by the depth than I am the width. Open a PDF and display pages side by side - I can get two top to bottom and then a gap at the side. Clearly suitability is dependent on what your use is.

Yep, although two of them are mirroring what the other two do in a different room, I need access to the PC from different areas of our building

seems ok for the price, once you go 24 in ch and bigger you can never ever go back.

Ah, very cool. Do you have dual graphics and four DVI slots then, one for each? Just curious about the setup, as it sounds like it would be quite cool if I could hook up my TV in the lounge to my PC directly to watch vids without using some kind of media streamer.

Hi,

That is a VERY informative review... helps make an informed choice although I did skim over some of the more technical stuff :thinking:

Cheers :thumbsup:

I bought this quite recently for £200 and have been very happy with it, so this looks like a bargain to me.

I have the 22" version of this. Excellent monitor but the dynamic contrast is only really of interest when watching movies, it's useless for PC work. If you leave it on when using the PC as normal, you notice the brightness of the display gets adjusted depending on how much real estate is actually being lit at any time. Bit of a waste of time and I turned it off after 20 mins of usage.

I'm torn between this model and the Asus VH242HL which is £169. The Asus is a very similar spec to Iiyama, but looks more pleasing to the eye. Though the Asus is not height adjustable like the Iiyama.

The Asus, like the Iiyama has good reviews. Does anyone who knows a thing about Monitors have any advice?

Look on AV fourms.

I do this - I use the PC, wife watches media (I have backed up all my DVDs to the hard drive) on the 46 inch sharp via dvi-hdmi cable.

the faster the ms response time, the better for gaming, apparently (although i dont see that 3ms will matter that much). so i guess its what you use it for primarily griffin.
I have an iiyama monitor and its great, cant comment on the asus though.

used to be the best make u coud buy always cost a fortune but were worth it.

I'd say iiyama every time, even if the response time on the iiyama wasn't better. All their monitors come with a 3yr warranty and their support is second to none.

If you can recommend another monitor with the same specs within the same price range, I'd appreciate it.

- - -

I just ordered one. I've had my eye on this for a while @ £199 on PixMania, then decided to go for a Dell SP2309W (has USB ports and a webcam) . Went to YoyoTech in Tottenham Court Road and didn't like the monitor first hand.

Then this price came along. A pity the XBOX 360 deal in ASDA's gone out of stock.

Thanks for posting this. Voting HOT.:santa:

I have the iyama Pro Lite E2407HDS monitor for a few months now and was going to buy another to use as a duel monitor on my PC. Seeing this I immediately ordered one as not only is it a newer model its cheaper than the EB2407HDS I bought earlier.

I agree. That was a bit harsh. But I can understand where he was coming from.

Still, the fact ]somebody went to all the trouble to make a lengthy review means that it's worth a look, and with this price, it definitely is something worth considering, if you're in a budget.

1920 X 1080 is rubbish, would rather have 1920 x 1200. I'll still heat it though.

I know this is a monitor but could it also be used with a DVD player with HDMI to play back regular DVDs?

Really good price, and I am tempted to replace my 19" LCD TV at some point with something similar, but given that I want it for 360 gaming I imagine the speakers on this monitor would be utter ****, so I'd have to pick up a set of speakers to complement the TV.

You'd have to buy yourself a Wii VGA adapter, (try eBay) but given that it is not an official nintendo add-on I have no idea what the image quality would be like.

You can but not at a normal watching distance. I tend to watch 720p rips even on a 40" 1080p TV as the quality is excellent anyway.
