As there were no gaming reviews of this monitor, I ended up getting the BenQ FP241W.


doesn't my above post regarding lag tell you what you need to know for gaming?   i'm not a gamer whatsoever so i'm curious as to what criteria you're after here.

Re: 1:1 pixel mapping

I was looking for someone that has actually played games on it. I wanted to know how the monitor delt with gaming in non-native resolutions, how the black levels were in games, and if there was any ghosting. Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate your help, I really do. It also has to do with the fact that I had no monitor, I was going to spend $450+, and I ended up wanting to go with a monitor that I had no question in my mind about, rather then something I felt I might be taking a chance on.

Hi Eric,
You said, that you are photograpf, so maybe you could take some photos of your monitor (l220x)?
Next question about Lenovo: monitor screen is glassy or mat?


Is it much better than Samsung 226CW?

And  is  l220x is good for gaming? may you could install some games and tell? :) There are not many reviews on internet about that lcd, and  i gonna buy it, but i can't see
lively, because it's not very popular in my country.

Thank You. :)

kebabas; i can take a few shots sometime this week.   anything specific you want to see?

the display panel is matte.

i haven't seen the samsung 226CW in person to know which is better.   the smallest resolution i'll buy is WUXGA so i've never looked into any of the WSXGA+ displays.   since the L220x is advertised as being S-PVA (which is a samsung technology), it's safe to assume that it's a samsung panel.   most samsung external monitor displays i've seen have been excellent.   conversely, the WUXGA panel in my T61p is a samsung but suffers from a lack of brightness and color vibrancy.

games should be fine on this panel.   20ms average lag isn't bad at all and i've never noticed any ghosting in any applications i've run (although none of them have been games).

Would it be possible for you do conduct a test like this guy is?

and maybe record it?

Would be grateful if you did, have been looking at this monitor now for a long time:smileywink:

a test like that won't work in my case since my T61p's internal display is 15.4" and the L220x is 22".   movement won't be at the same apparent rate due to the panels being different sizes.   the best i can do is what's already been posted in this message: http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=Thinkvision&message.id=14#M14

I gonna buy pc at the end of this week (2008-01-11 maybe). So if it is no trouble at all, take photo, how it looks in room at all, how it looks close up when turned on, how it looks in not native resoliution. And if you have some games, I would appreciate if you take photo in 1920x1200 and in not native (like 1680x1050). I want to see how bad looks blur in not native games and how looks desktop in not native too, and in native :) Thanks :)

20ms average lag. Yeah, I think it's not bad.

May you could say, what differences between these monitors:

http://www.gerakaina.lt/new/product_info.php?products_id=471448
http://www.gerakaina.lt/new/product_info.php?products_id=471584

I gonna buy second, because it's cheaper, and I outmeasure my budget already (without monitor :) ).
In specifics, i don't seen any diferences. Which one is yours?

Thanks ;)


Eric, do you have skype? whats your nick ? may i could chat with you live :)

Re: lenovo thinkvision L220x review (pics)

Erik,
I have a couple questions for you:
In your review you said that the color accuracy is "nearly dead on", when calibrated correctly. I was wondering if you could quantify this at all. I'm not sure how easy it is do this with your colorimeter but anything you can do would be appreciated, some raw numbers, screen shots... whatever is easiest. Nothing this fancy but might give you an example: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/featurescontent.htm#colour%20repro

You commented that the backlight looked good. I was wondering if you had any specific thoughts about the backlight uniformity of this display compared to others you've used.



General Questions for anyone:
  • Where did you buy it / do you know anywhere that it's in stock, most sites show a 1-2 week shipping time?
  • Do you know any stores in the US that stock it? It's always nice to see an lcd in person
  • Any idea why the US product page has been removed from the lenovo website? (random glitch, product update in the works...)
  • Have any of you seen the HP LP2065 (20" S-IPS or A-MVA panel ~$370 after rebate) in person, if so how does it compare to the L220x?

Thanks

the backlight is extremely uniform.   i haven't checked it with my colorimeter but to the naked eye it's impossible for me to discern areas which may be darker or lighter.   if i get time this week then i'll see if my colorimeter and software can grab luminance values from various points on a white screen.

i ran ICC coloreyes software with my GMB i1 display2 colorimeter to get average deltas.   from the results below you can see that color is extremely accurate with nothing pushing higher than 0.99%.   average delta is 0.54%.   that's quite accurate in my book. ;)

Missing from Web Page

2008-01-09, 1:59 AM
I also was wondering why it was missing from the web page. It hardly seems accidental, it's the featured monitor.  However if they wanted to pull it, they'd have pulled the big feature ad too.
 
/sigh
 
 
I'm looking  for a nice game monitor as well, and this one looked nice since I have some extra cash. The pixel size is small, the monitor is big but not too big, and it has a  nice refresh rate.
