Brightness and contrast
For use in a brightly lit environment it is quite useful to know the maximum brightness. The Iiyama G-Master GE2488HS-B2 has the largest light output, the Benq GW2470H the smallest – but even that one will be bright enough in most environments.
If you are behind your monitor in the dark a lot, the brightness should not be too high. For these situations it is essential that you are able to have a low brightness. The best monitor for this is the Samsung S24F350H, the S24D330H and the C24F390FHU of the same brand are also close to the minimum brightness. The Acer models, but also the LG, Philips and Iiyama ones are clearly brighter.
When we set the monitors to a brightness of white of 150 cd/m², a good value for use in most regular environments, we note solid black values for all participants. The monitors with a va-panel stand out in a positive way in this regard, as always with this part of the test.
In terms of contrast we keep to the most challenging version of this test that we performed, the checkerboard-contrast at 150 cd/m². Thanks to the very good black value the monitors with va-panel are by far the best performing ones here. The AOC i2475PXQU and the Samsung S24D330H disappoint slightly, but values from 800:1 are simply good.
