REVIEW: Lenovo L220x Wide Part 13
The black value in films can be described as good. No haloes were visible on our test model, nor was there much streaking to be seen. The overall good performance in this section can be attributed to the excellent S-PVA panel.
Colour playback is also of a convincing standard. The lag of about 31 ms does not play a role in general and can be corrected via the player device or the PC software if necessary. However, we did not need to go to such drastic lengths in our test.
The widescreen format means that the inevitable black bands at the top and bottom in films look considerably thinner than on models with aspect ratios of 5:4 or 4:3.
The Lenovo ThinkVision L220x is a solid screen with very good subjective image quality. The wide gamut display performs well with regard to the colour spaces AdobeRGB, ECI 2.0 and UGRA. The monitor could be an "insider tip" for graphics users with small budgets, since it performs well in the extended colour spaces.
However, the monitor’s result is limited by its excessive brightness. Use at 0 percent brightness is therefore to be seen as the norm if you wish to work at a level that is close to the recommended value for brightness (140 cd/m²).
In the office environment, the monitor represents an interesting alternative to conventional 22 and 24 inch models, since the Lenovo ThinkVision L220x has the resolution of a 24-inch monitor but the price-related attraction of a 22-inch monitor. The S-PVA panel scores points for areas such as viewing angles and pixel density. Those who are used to ultra-finely resolved text will gain an enormous working space as well as it and can work better in multi-window use.
Normal users and occasional gamers will receive a monitor with a low input lag. This is certainly suitable for their needs at just 31ms (less than 2 frames per second).
There is no real alternative to the L220x, since it is the first and only of its kind at the moment. However, if you find the text size too small but do not want to do without the advantages of a 22-inch monitor, you should opt for the Eizo S2231W.
Overall rating: GOOD
