Lenovo ThinkVision L2440p review: Lenovo ThinkVision L2440p

World of Warcraft looked great on the L2440p with vivid and accurate colors that were not saturated and had no signs of streaking. The game looks less soft and the edges of the polygonal model are more prominent when compared with the L2440x, which had a soft focus look to it. The image on the L2440p was not jaggy, but didn't feel as soft as it did on the L2440x.

In CNET Labs monitor test room, our lab benches sit higher than a normal desk. Given this, the lower viewing angle of a monitor is immediately noticeable, especially when playing a game. While playing WoW, unless we were at the optimal level to the screen (one-quarter of the screen distance down), there would be visible shadows at the top of the screen that made details difficult to see. So if you're slouching while Web surfing or gaming, be prepared to have a difficult time seeing the detail. You could always just sit up straight, but in our opinion, you shouldn't have to.

As for movie playback, we watched a few choice scenes in Kill Bill Vol. 1. In this real world test, the L2440p had a good black level and while it was not as dark as the L2440x, it was on a par with the Dell 2408WFP and the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD. While the color of the Dell looked oversaturated at times and the Samsung looked slightly muted, on the L2440p's color looked more accurate, but not quite as good as the L2440x's. When we turned the brightness down to its lowest on all four monitors, the L2440x still had the deeper blacks. The L2440p produced accurate colors too, but thanks to its higher black level the colors weren't quite as precise as the L2440x.
