REVIEW: Lenovo L2440p Part 12
Very blurred interpolation at 1.680 x 1.050 and blurred interpolation at 1.600 x 1.200.
At a resolution of 1.440 x 900, the interpolation is surprisingly good. Texts are therefore also very legible.
The lack of a possibility to actually display material in justified display is especially noticeable at the 5:4 resolution1, 1.280 x 1.024. The screen content is therefore pulled out strongly in width and the interpolation is also blurred here.

Each interpolation looks very blurred and makes it considerably more difficult to read text. Here, 1.440 x 900 is the only exception; it still brings with it a slight loss of sharpness, but this is completely normal within the scope of an interpolation.
The results we documented mean that we can only conclude that that monitor should be run exclusively in its native resolution.
With its 24 inch screen, this model offers the usual extensive space for applications as is normal in 24-inch monitors with a resolution of 1.920 x 1.200. It is possible to display two DinA4 pages at 100 percent zoom or various applications together on the space available. At the moment, only 30-inch monitors offer more usable space. Here, the text size is somewhat more pleasant than in 24-inch models, but you should not sit as close to the monitor accordingly.

Video output via the PC is possible without any difficulty, especially if the monitor is connected via DVI and is being run in the resolution 1.920 x 1.200. The integrated TN panel is sufficiently fast to ensure that even action-packed scenes do not put the model under pressure. The slender black bands at the top and bottom are transmitted by the graphics card so that the image content for Full HD material is reproduced perfectly.
The playback of SD videos, e.g. films from conventional DVDs, is also a pleasure as long as not too many extremely dark details are visible in the image, since these can then be lost in some cases. Here, the LED is worthy of praise, since it performs its duties in the lower right corner and remains hardly visible.
Excerpt from the DVD "Terminator 3". Image details are good and the panel is fast enough for streak-free display.
Image display becomes more difficult in the case of playback via an external device or via the analogue D-Sub connection. Whilst 1.920 x 1.080p can still be displayed in interpolated format via the DVI connection, this resolution is unusable via the D-Sub connection.
Neither with the GeForce 8800GTS via a DVI-A to D-Sub cable nor with the FireGL/T2 in the laptop was it possible to play back the resolution 1.920 x 1.080p on this monitor. Instead, the monitor only displayed an image excerpt in 1.280 x 1.024.
