The IPS panel also ensures that the perfect display stays that way no matter at what angle you’re looking at the screen, as it offers viewing angles of 178 degrees both horizontal and vertical.

Along with the 24″ screen and the 1920×1200 resolution, the 16:10 aspect ratio provides you with more work space for designing, programming, and video/image editing. The monitor can, however, also be set to the more standard 16:9 aspect ratio when you wish to watch a movie.

The 12-bit internal processing along with the 80,000:1 contrast ratio and the brightness level of 400cd/m2 ensure the accuracy of color tones even in the lowest grayscale levels which make for highly detailed and distinguishable objects even in the darkest areas.

The buttons can be used to quickly navigate between the presets, change input sources, and adjust brightness and contrast when not in the OSD menu. Once you enter the main menu, you will access to more thorough setting options such as the auto-adjustment feature, display settings, Picture in Picture and Picture by Picture settings, and the Color Settings which allow you to adjust the gamma, hue, saturation, etc.
