REVIEW: Hyundai L70D+ Part 3
You can clearly see that the black standard cable is significantly longer than the cable of the Hyundai L70D+.
The fabrication quality can be rated as very good. Particularly the frame that is fitted against the panel looks very neatly crafted and is exactly adjacent on all sides of the panel.
Apart from the already mentioned somewhat restricted possibility for using commercially available DVI cables, the other connectors are easily accessible.
You can see the following connectors (from left to right): power connector, D-Sub, DVI, audio input and head phone output.
This is where a lot of functions have been left out, because all it can feature is alteration in slanting angle by 20 degrees.
Neither height adjustment, nor swiveling, nor pivoting has been accounted for. Slanting the device can be carried out fairly easy and the position it is adjusted to remains stable. The monitor teeters a little when being tapped.
The control elements have a good pressure point and can be reached excellently.
The speakers built into each of the sides can be used for operating system sounds but can in no way considered to be a replacement of separate speakers.
The Hyundai features a TN panel, which possesses a vertical viewing angle of 135 degrees and a horizontal viewing angle of 150 degrees. The behavior in viewing angle dependency can be regarded as satisfactory. Particularly with regard to the vertical viewing angle the monitor could really use a height adjustment function, since that way, one could achieve more ideal results in mange quality when looking frontally onto screen.
The picture looks quite appealing at values of 60 percent in brightness and 65 percent in contrast. However, it struck as very odd as we were taking a closer look at the OSD and were unable to find any possibility for color correction in digital mode. Although it unfortunately might be very common to omit certain OSD functions for digital mode, the lack of color control for the RGB values has to be seriously criticized. Neither is one able to select the color temperature, nor to readjust a single color value (red, green or blue).
However, one has to admit that our model in fact didn't need any readjustments of color value. The image quality is great and has to be regarded as superior to the Iiyama E435S-B which we have reviewed as well. The Hyundai L70D+ can leave its competition particularly far behind when it comes to the reproduction of darker color areas. But indeed the user isn't asked at all whether he might prefer to use a warm color temperature setting or rather a cold one.
As an alternative one can also use the menu of the graphics card for making adjustments of colors or just as well use separate software like PowerStrip. PowerStrip really facilitates the process of adjusting and additionally allows you to save any amount user profiles you'd like. You also have the ability of assigning profiles to certain applications. If for instance a certain game is being started up, PowerStrip immediately opens the prior created, respective color profile at the same time. Thus, although the missing option in the OSD can be pitied, it shouldn't become a reason for not buying the monitor, because the subjective image quality is excellent after all.
