CNET First Look
Lenovo L2060 WideThe Lenovo L2060 Wide is a low-priced 20-incher with acceptable overall performance.
>> Hi everyone, this is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and is anyone else is tired as I am of me wearing the same shirts seemingly over and over again like every video. I will take the hint, I will go shop. Anyway, today we are taking a first look at the Lenovo L2060 Wide. This 20-inch Lenovo looks like a slightly smaller version of the L215P we reviewed previously. The screen height is neither adjustable nor is there a swivel or pivot option. The capability to tilt the screen back 20 degrees is the only included ergonomic feature. As for connection options, Lenovo includes DVI and VGA. Picture options consist of brightness and contrast and there are three presets, including Text, Internet, and Video. Each preset changes the color temperature and or the brightness of the display to be appropriate to the task at hand. In our Dark Screen test, clouding, or backlight bleedthrough was quite prevalent on the top and especially the bottom-middle edge of the screen. Also, we noticed a slight greenish tint in our Color Tracking test suggesting that colors may not be as accurate as we would like. Also, we noticed a slight greenish tint in our Color Tracking test suggesting that colors may not be as accurate as we would like. We ran the Lenovo Wide next to the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 and the brightness difference was easily noticeable. Movie images looked sharp, but the colors weren't able to really pop, thanks to the Wide's relatively dim screen. In games, we noticed no signs of input lag or any streaking or ghosting during fast movement. At such a relatively low resolution of 1,600 by 900, we did notice that some text in Warcraft isn't as sharp as we are accustomed to. In power consumption, the Wide will cost you about $7 per year to run compared with the HP 2009m's $9 per year and the LG W2053TQ's $14 per year. The 20-inch Lenovo L2060 Wide is available for as low as $135 and includes acceptable overall performance. Unfortunately, its relatively low brightness hampers movie playback by constraining the colors and not allowing them to pop. Thanks to their higher brightness, both the 20-inch HP 2009m and the LG Flatron W2053TQ are better overall performers and can be found for about the same price. Once again this is Eric Franklin and this has been a first look at the Lenovo L2060 Wide. ^M00:02:24 [ Music ]
