REVIEW: Dell 2209WA (s) Part 6
All image display settings can be adjusted under this menu option. There are a total of 7 sub-menus can be selected, but not all are available depending on the connection with the PC - digital or analogue.
"Widescreen mode" allows the image display to be adjusted to 4:3. We will look at this setting in mode detail later in this review. "Horizontal Position", "Vertical Position" and "Pixel Clock" and "Phase" are only available in analogue mode.
The sharpness can be adjusted in steps of ten between 0 and 100. In the test, it emerged that the pre-defined value of 50 provided the best result. The "Dynamic Contrast" can be switched on or odd.
In this menu, various additional settings can be made. Overall, there are 8 sub-menus, whereby "Energy-saving Audio" can only be selected when the optionally available Dell soundbar is connected via the 12-volt power connection.
There are 7 languages to choose form, but you should avoid clicking Chinese or Japanese accidentally at all costs unless you are competent in these languages. The menu transparency can be adjusted in steps of 5 between 0 and 100 and the menu timer allows the menu to be displayed for periods of up to one minute. The menu can be locked using "Menu Lock". Then, no other changes can be made until the menu is unlocked. The next menu option allows the OSD to be turned. This is very practical if the monitor is in portrait mode.
In the sub-menu option "DDC/CI" (Display Data Channel/Command Interface), the user can activate an option which allows the monitor settings to be accessed remotely using the Dell Client Manager software. Ghost images can be prevented using "LCD conditioning". The last sub-menu option restores the factory settings.
Dell has included an e-IPS panel on the 2209WA. According to the manufacturer's information, the panel can display 16,7 million colours and functions with 8 bits per colour channel. The factory settings already display a subjectively very good image. We tested the grey levels and grey gradients with the aid of test images.
Colour gradients and grey levels – no problem for the Dell 2209WA.
