After the success of the B2403WS then the E2403WS, the 24 inch Iiyama is among the most anticipated of screens. The E2407HDS will have to do very well to compete with its elders. Iiyama have reused the design and ergonomics of the E2607WS. You’ll notice the glossy bezel underlain with a band of aluminium. There are also the same three video ins: VGA, DVI and HDMI, as well as an audio in linked to a pair of 2 x 3 speakers. It therefore gets a similar rating to the the 26 inch in this category.


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.

1080 lines instead of 1200. So what?
The particularity of the E2407HDS is that it has a different res to that of your standard 24 inch. We don’t really see this as a plus point. At first sight, you might think that this gives it the advantage of not having to resize for 1080p sources such as a Blu-Ray player, or a last generation console. However a standard 24 inch with a 1:1 mode will do the same. All the more so as with a PC you lose display surface. The only real advantage then is the price. The E2407HDS is 20% cheaper than the E2403WS, and with only a 10% reduction in display area.


  • Good responsiveness
  • High contrast
  • Nice price


  • Poor ergonomics
  • TN panel = reduced angle of vision
  • Inaccurate colours


This monitor gives good value for money if you’re ready to sacrifice a little display surface.
