REVIEW: Hyundai W220S
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
The W220S, with its size of 22 inches, is the smallest element of the 3D-enabled monitor series from manufacturer Hyundai. Unlike the competition, Hyundai uses a completely different concept for stereoscopic playback: Instead of 120-Hertz and obligatory connection to Nvidia’s 3D Vision and Windows Vista or Windows 7, the manufacturer is following a more independent concept with its own technology for the polarisation of light. Hyundai thus promises to present 3D images without Moiré effects, ghosting or flickering.
Apart from this feature, the W220S also seems to be able to convince in other respects: gamers are rewarded with a short response time, whilst film lovers will be pleased with a HDMI connection and a wide viewing angle. Can the Hyundai W220S keep these promises? PRAD has tested it to see.
All results published in the test were obtained via the digital input of an ATI Type HD4870 graphics card. For the measurements used for calibration, the iColor software was used together with the DTP94 colorimetre from Quato as well as the "Colorimetre HCFR". The BDP-S350E Blu-ray player and Playstation 3 from Sony were used to test the video functions and the suitability of the monitor for gaming.
For a 22-inch monitor, the W220S comes in a large box. However, this can be explained by the generous scope of supply provided. As well as the monitor itself, the box contains a digital DVI cable as well as an analogue D-Sub VGA cable, an external device cable for power supply to the integrated power unit, a 3.5 mm jack connector cable, the 3D glasses, the matching glasses case, a microfibre cloth, a printed getting started guide and a CD containing the complete manual and the 3D driver.
The generous range of accessories is convincing.
The base and monitor are included separately, but can be connected securely with ease using the screws provided. In order to protect the monitor from scratches, the glossy surfaces are covered with adhesive sheets.
