REVIEW: Hyundai L70D+ Part 4
While the color control becomes in fact possible when the device connected to the analog port of the graphics card, one is still probably going to use the digital output and this way will be forced to do without a color adjustment by means of the OSD.
Given the adequate lighting conditions, shades of black can be regarded as good. The same thing goes for shades of white. Color gradients and grey scales are reproduced satisfactorily to well. Indeed, marginal separate shades can be seen within gradients, but this should only be of annoyance to professionals in the field of graphics work and this is surely not kind of user group the L70D+ was developed in the first place.
The illumination uniformity of the Hyundai L70D+ seems well done, however, some light irregularities can be observed in the upper border areas; but not to an extent where they would really bother.
With a specified response time of 12 ms the Hyundai L70D+ can really show the better part of its strength here. The playback of DVDs can be regarded as ideal. Rapid picture sequences can't trouble the L70D+ at all and also the image quality is convincing. The reproduction of skin color tones is good. Just the viewing position should be minded, since the viewing angles of this monitor are rather narrow. But if you sit right in front of the L70D+, you won't have to take any visible reduction in image quality.
The Hyundai L70D+ is very well suited fort he purpose of gaming. Along with Need for Speed Underground 2 we also looked into the game Doom 3. It should be noted that the display does not come with the drawback of a too dark reproduction like a lot of other devices with TN panel we have previously reviewed did. All details can be seen very clearly, even in night scenes.
If any other than the native resolution 1280 x 1024 is in use, the Hyundai L70D+ always interpolates to full screen. A fixed aspect ratio or 1:1 setting can not be selected hardware wise. If you don't want full screen display at all times, you can still solve this issue by using the menu of you graphics card, where you normally should be able to choose these settings in digital mode.
As we already covered in image quality, the OSD menu is more than scarce in digital mode, and maybe this already is the only real point of critique that one should emphasize about this model, since it really performs neatly in all the other areas.
Using the buttons on the display, the analog mode offers automatic picture adjustment, muting of the speakers and volume control. In order to adjust brightness and contrast you are going to have to make use of the OSD menu.
The OSD menu provides the following options:
Position (only in analog mode)
Clock speed (only in analog mode)
Automatic adjustment (only in analog mode)
Select input signal source
