14 design monitors review: a beauty contest for screens

14 24 and 27 inch full hd screens with a design touch

Iiyama G2530HSU

The candidate from Iiyama appears out of place, because the G-Master G2530HSU-B1 is at first sight not very distinctive in terms of design. Moreover, this 140 pounds / 150 euros monitor is equipped with a TN panel, because it is part of the Japanese brand’s gaming series. Hence the presence of FreeSync with an effective range of 40-75Hz. Upon closer inspection we see that the foot looks a bit more refined than what we are used to from the primarily functional models of Iiyama, with a pattern on the sloping stand.

Another interesting feature is the DisplayPort input next to the hdmi and vga plugs. Besides that, there are is also a USB hub and both audio out and in. The cables are neatly tucked in pointing down which looks neater even though the back of the screen is not what you would call beautiful. Here too it is function over form.

Let’s start off with the bad news first, the minimum brightness is too high at 124 cd/m². This is especially bad for a gaming screen. Additionally, the uniformity is not anything to write home about. Besides this, the rest looks more promising for the G2530HSU. We were not surprised that it had the best response times of the lot, but both power consumption and contrast are lacking. The most surprising result is the colour rendering: the colour and grey deviations are the smallest in the test (!), the colour temperature is in order and the sRGB coverage is also good. This gives the G2530HSU a solid spot in the mid-field. Because it is a TN panel, the viewing angles are limited and perhaps the design is not all that exciting. However, if you are looking for a bargain, we recommend it.
