REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite E2200WS-B1 Part 12
The monitor masters back lighting effects, fog, snow flurries or dark film passages beautifully; the TN panel and its image quality come into play here. However, in this area of application, the viewing angle cannot be ignored. As long as you sit directly in front of the monitor and the monitor is not positioned above your seat, the screen can be used for DVD playback without any problems.
The Iiyama E2200WS-B1 has many advantages, but it also has its disadvantages. The monitor is the equal of some current VA and IPS panel models in terms of image quality and performs spectacularly for a TN panel model. However, the brightness distribution is merely satisfactory, with lightening in the upper and lower margins. In addition, the viewing angles do not even come close to those advertised by the manufacturer and so colour deviation is relatively quickly visible when you look at the screen from the side.
The manufacturing quality of the cover is flawless, but the simple plastic base does not look to be of particularly high quality and also lacks any anti-slipping device on the underside. The DVI cable is missing from the scope of supply and must be ordered separately.
The monitor’s high suitability for gaming is certainly an argument in favour of buying it for gamers. The Iiyama E2200WS-B1 is recommendable even for hardcore gamers and manages even without Overdrive technology.
The high-street price, a mere 350.00 Euro, is another advantage. If you are a regular gamer and want to get as much screen surface as possible for as little money as possible, the Iiyama E2200WS-B1 is the perfect choice as long as you are not looking for a flawless LCD monitor.
