REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite E435S-B
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
For many users, the decision which LCD monitor one is going choose is dominated by the aspect of fast response times. In particular gamers are increasingly attaching importance to this, which again leads to manufacturers jumping the bandwagon by offering faster displays. In this regard, one should always mind fact that values specified by the manufacturers are the measured black/ white switches only. These don't apply to everyday usage of a monitor.
Gamers were already sitting up and taking notice when 16 ms displays came out. After reducing the response times to 12 ms, 10 ms and now even 8 ms a further reduction seems hardly possible. It would also make sense for sure, not to concentrate on b/w switch but rather on grey to grey switches, since response times of grey to grey switches are generally a multiple of the /w switches.
Here you can see the Iiyama ProLite E435S-B from the front and from the side.
Today we are reviewing the 17 inch LCD monitor Iiyama ProLite E435S-B with response time that the manufacturer specifies to be 10 ms. 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 test bed ran with a Gainward 750 Geforce4 Titanium graphics card.
The delivery includes - next to the display - a monitor base, a power cable, an AC-Adapter, a D-Sub VGA cable, an audio cable and a user manual.
It should be pointed out as positive that, in contrary to the usual mere PDF-on-CD version, a detailed user manual is included. Yet, drivers or a monitor profile on CD - or on a disk at least - were missing. But drivers can be easily downloaded from the Iiyama home page.
