Without doubt, the merits of the viewing angle stable A-MVA panel are to the credit of the EW2430, its image quality easily excelling all TN competitors in this price range. In comparison to many super-slim doubtful cases, the solid and even dignified-looking presentation is also really convincing. In light of its many digital connection possibilities, the EW2430 volunteers as multimedia expert, and this part of the technique also works flawlessly.
Shortcomings are to be found in many half-hearted details. Film and photography fans will soon find out that the frontally excellent contrast decreases significantly, even seen from small lateral viewing angles. Per se proper, the colour reproduction is constrained by a fairly scarce colour space. Also, the panel’s weak anti-reflective coating is rather annoying in most cases.
Hobby players will be happy with the good tracing in darker scenes, but the extremely long response times might be quite disturbing in fast-acting shooters. In the office, finally, a solid all-rounder is just right, but this one lacks ergonomic features.
What remains is just another budget-priced monitor, coming in without real weaknesses, but also without any strengths. Not least in its own portfolio, BenQ absolutely has alternatives offering comparable technology that serve respective target groups more consistently.
