The default colour settings suffer from an exageratedly dominant blue. This means there’s a difference or deltaE of 4.9 between the colours requested and those displayed. In our tests, setting colour temperature at 5000K seems the best solution. This setting has the merit of suppressing the blue but replaces it with a slightly dominant red. The deltaE, at best, stays at 3.9, which is far from being excellent but which allows us to give the screen another star, moving its rating up to three. If you still don’t like the colours, you can always check the calibration profiles available here. The contrast is at around 800: 1 compared to an average for screens of around 750: 1.
This is where the E2407HDS comes into its own. It has very good responsiveness, although it isn’t up there with the big boys. Gamers will also be delighted to learn that its display delay is on average under 1 frame. Fast movement in games will be fluid and gamers will not notice too significant an image delay either online or in LAN.
Image quality in films is a little better than the average monitor. Responsiveness and contrast levels mean there is little flickering, although obviously a graphics correction chip would improve things.
- Good responsiveness
- High contrast
- Nice price
- Poor ergonomics
- TN panel = reduced angle of vision
- Inaccurate colours
This monitor gives good value for money if youre ready to sacrifice a little display surface.
