REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite E2200WS-B1
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
Large widescreen LCDs are in fashion; new on the scene is the 22 inch (55.9 cm) format, which currently offers a good relationship of image size and price. With a resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels, 22-inch monitors are also an alternative for all those whose hardware does not suffice for a 23-inch monitor with the usual HD resolution of 1.920 x 1.080.
All 22-inch LCDs available to date have been equipped with TN panels and are therefore particularly suitable for games and for the multimedia sector. The Iiyama E2200WS-B1 is a typical member of the new class of monitor and we have tested its capability in practice.
All test results were obtained via a digital connection. Only the analogue image quality was tested using an analogue connection. Graphics cards used were a Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX and two Point of View GeForce 7800GTX 512MB (SLI) cards.
The Iiyama E2200WS-B1’s scope of supply includes the following: A multilingual Getting Started guide, a power cable, a D-Sub cable (analogue) and an audio cable. The DVI-D cable is not included and must be ordered separately. Iiyama have obviously saved some money here, but in our opinion, this was the wrong thing to save money on – for an LCD monitor with a DVI connection, a cable should always be included in the scope of supply so that the connection can be made use of straight away.
The monitor’s scope of supply includes neither a CD with an INF monitor driver nor a detailed handbook. However, no driver is necessary because the E2200WS-B1 is Plug and Play-compatible. The detailed multilingual handbook must be downloaded in PDF format from the manufacturer’s website.
