Brightness and contrast
The Iiyama G-Master Silver Crow GB2783QSU-B1 has a maximum brightness of no less than 417,6 cd/m², which we can definitely call blinding. It is slightly more than the 401 cd/m² we measured with its ‘business’ twin brother.
The minimum brightness of the GB2783QSU-B1 is a weakness – we only measure this since the introduction of our new test method, but about a result of about 102 cd/m² means that this monitor will still emit quite a lot of light even when turned all the way down. In a dimly lit room this could be a bit too much.
Not entirely surprising, the brightness of black at maximum brightness ends up quite high. We measure 0.47 cd/m² which means that black is more like dark grey. At a brightness of white of 150 cd/m² we only measure 0.17 cd/m² which is fine, compared with the other two monitors that we tested this way.
The contrast of this monitor is a bit lower than you would expect based on the high brightness, which is of course due to the black value. The best result is seen at a brightness of 150 cd/m² and that is a brightness at which you will usually work with – which means we do not find this bad at all. In practice you will not really notice the difference with the other two models in this graph.
