[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, this is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today we're looking at the Lenovo ThinkVision L2440x 24-inch display, which shall be referred to as the 24x from this point forward. In this video, I'll be comparing it to the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP, the V7D24W33, the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD and the Lenovo ThinkVision L2440p. The 24x is the first light-emitting diode or LED-based consumer level LCD we've reviewed. Most LCDs like the Dell and the 24p have Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes, or CCFL-based backlights. In an LED display, there are many individual LEDs all over the entire screen, which can be turned on or off. This gives the LED display a much, more precise control over the amount of light coming through the screen. The 24x scored an 88 in CNET Lab's DisplayMate-based Performance Test. We attribute this mostly to its ability to display color accurately. The reigning 24-inch performance shut the Dell with a score of 90 had more visibly accurate color during the DisplayMate test. We noticed that when viewing the CCFL-based screen of the 24p for more than a few seconds, our eyes would feel strained. However when looking at the 24x's screen with its LED-based backlight, we didn't perceive any strain. This occurred even when both monitors had their brightness set to zero. World of Warcraft looked great on the 24x with vivid and accurate colors that were not saturated and had no signs of streaking. The game had a soft focus looked to it when viewed on the 24x. The image was not blurry, but it didn't feel as edgy as it did on the 24p.The display had the same problem as a lot of other monitors have in that it's lower viewing angle and the side view angle was kind of narrow. This is especially noticeable when you're slouching, while playing the game or surfing the web. As for movie playback, we watched a few choice scenes in Kill Bill Volume I. In this real world test, the 24x had a deeper black level than the 24p, the Dell or the Samsung. While watching Kill Bill, the color in the Dell looked over-saturated at times, and on the Samsung, this color looked slightly muted. On the 24x, colors looked more accurate. The display includes the ergonomic tri-effect of screen pivoting, rotation and height adjustment. It also includes DVI, VGA, and HDMI connection options and it retails for $750. Is it worth it? Not really. There are cheaper LCDs like the $390 V7, the $620 Dell has a better overall performance and is $100 less. In addition, the $550 24p is $200 cheaper, has an identical form factor as the 24x, has very similar performance, but it doesn't include of LED-based backlight. So, thanks to its high price, we would recommend any of the three aforementioned displays before the 24x. Once again, this is Eric Franklin and this has been the First Look at the Lenovo ThinkVision L2440x. ^M00:03:08 [ Music ]
