REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite E511S-W
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
We have been quite anxious about getting our hands on the ProLite 511S. Over the course of the last months there have been going on some - in parts vehement – discussions about the pixel grids that have become known as the "RBEK stripes". We want to clarify in brief, whether these stripes annoy during daily work and in what way they do affect everyday life's use. As far as we know all the currently available S-IPS featuring 20.1 inch monitors incorporate a panel by LG that shows this pixel grid.
All results issued in this review have been established by using the digital input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which have been established on the analog input. Our testbed ran with a Gainward 750 Geforce4 Titanium graphics card.
Next to the display the package contained a manual (quick manual) to start up the monitor, a D-Sub cable, a power cable, a CD-ROM with drivers, monitor profile and a detailed manual in PDF format.
In terms of design the Iiyama sticks to what has proved its worth before. The bright-beige device is completely made of plastic and can cope with currently available design LCDs only to limited degree. Of course, this is a question of personal taste. However, design aspects begin to weigh in to the buying decision more and more.
