Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

24" iiyama GE2488HS-B2 G-Master Gaming Monitor, Freesync, LED 1920x1080, 1ms, 2x1W Stereo Speakers, HDMI/DVI/VGA, Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good So far what I have seen using the product is that it matches the description. Very good picture quality. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keep reminding yourself how much it costs OK let me explain my scoring of this monitor. I still can recommend this monitor because it has a lot of a lot of features at a low price. Also the picture quality is undeniably superb. However this recommendation comes with some serious caveats. In order of most annoying as of writing this after about a month of use. Freesync appears to be questionable at best on this monitor. First off there are no display ports, it is Freesync via HDMI. Now the freesync demo works (windmill thing) it appears to work alright for very small fluctuations like a drop to say 56fps. If you drop sub 54fps or there abouts it stutters. Now google freesync not working and there are a raft of complaints across a number of forums which would suggest this is a driver issue (I'm using an RX480 BTW). So I'm hoping that this issue will resolve itself in the future. HDMI is not the best interface for a monitor I have come to the conclusion. On both my GTX770 and my RX480 the picture was initially terrible. This is to do with the RGB colour setting and must be altered (google it!). The speakers are terrible. Now I have replaced an Asus TN panel from 2009 that had integrated speakers that sound like the London Philharmonic in comparison to these speakers. You can not raise the volume above approx. 30-35 without them making the most terrible high pitch distortion sound. I can literally do a better job muting my machine and making the sounds myself using an assortment of tin cans and a spoon. I wasn't expecting anything great but they are literally useless. The 'touch sensitive' menu buttons... are actually punch sensitive menu buttons. They are unresponsive, the layout makes no sense (1,2 and left and right!!) and don't get me started on the actual menu. The layout requires a thousand button 'punches' to do anything and you have to navigate the whole menu system to adjust the volume up and down! Finally the iiyama website suggests there are drivers for the monitor, which I tried to download to see if it would resolve my Freesync issue. There are no drivers for this specific model currently available on the website. There is a download link which gives you every single iiyama driver ever made in a zip file. This one isn't in it to save you the trouble of searching it like I did. Now I've vented my misgivings about this monitor I'm not sure my initial recommendation makes sense. All I can say is I don't feel like I wasted my money. I've decided I was expecting too much for the money and I wanted a great 1080p 60hz picture and that's exactly what I got. I don't have to use the menu now I've set it up and I use my headphones 90% of the time anyway. If I could sort out Freesync properly it would get another star hands down and would be the bargain that the specs and price suggest it is.
