REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite B2206WS-B1 Part 12
With the ProLite B2206WS, Iiyama has created a 22-inch LCD with a fast TN panel for the business market which could also be interesting for gamers because of its practically non-existent input lag. This use is supported by a fast response time, but is also questionable because of the very limited viewing angle at the same time. For dark image content in particular, such as in a computer game or a video, the viewing angles spoil the display quality.
The viewing angle dependency is so pronounced that it is clearly distracting even in everyday use, even when processing simple Excel tables.
It is not just for this reason that the monitor is unsuitable for demanding hobby graphics editing. In addition, the large fluctuations in the brightness deviation and the tendency towards banding spoil the playback of image material of any kind.
The colour space and colour precision are of course completely sufficient for areas of application where the colour is not critical such as gaming, video viewing and simple office work, and may even appear more natural compared to wide gamut monitors.
Whilst the ergonomic characteristics of the model stand out in a positive manner through the height adjustment, rotation, tilting and pivot mechanisms, the model demonstrates some manufacturing weaknesses.
Although the model seems tempting with a low sales price of around 175.00 Euro, in our opinion, the Iiyama monitor is unfortunately not a bargain, considering all the negative points. Gamers should definitely check whether the viewing angles are sufficient for their needs before buying the model.
Overall rating: SUFFICIENT
Technical specification: Iiyama ProLite B2206WS
