The color temperature is set up not as neatly as on the LCD2470WNX, yet well enough. It’s only in cold modes that the temperature dispersion is over 1000K.

I found another drawback, though. At the default contrast, white has a pink huge in the sRGB, 7500K and 5000K modes. To remove it, you should lower the contrast setting in the monitor’s menu to 45% at least.

The max brightness and contrast ratio are good.

Like the two previous models, the LCD2470WVX offers DV Mode technology, factory-set image modes you can switch between by pressing a single button.

Alas, these modes are even brighter than in the monitors discussed in the previous sections. I wonder if the developers ever tried to work with text at a brightness of 250 nits. Do they wear sunglasses when working at the monitor? The rest of the modes are close to 400 nits which is too bright even for games and movies unless you are going to watch them under direct sunlight.

 

The Photo mode has a high level of green again. That’s not as bad as the Green Fields of the above-discussed LCD24WMCX, but has little to do with accurate color reproduction, either.

 

All the basic colors are too intensive in the Movie mode, yet green is again the brightest of all.

 

20% of lights are indistinguishable in the Gaming mode.

If the MultiSync LCD2470WVX is compared with the AccuSync LCD24WMCX, it’s not quite clear why the latter belongs to the cheaper AccuSync series. These two models are very similar in their parameters, but the LCD24WMCX is superior in terms of functionality, being only less ergonomic than the LCD2470WNX (less convenient controls and a simpler stand). The price of the LCD2470WNX seems too high to me in comparison with other manufacturers’ models.

Highs:

  • Uniform brightness
  • Good color reproduction setup

Lows:

  • Slow matrix
  • Sloppy setup of DV Modes
  • High price

Recommended usage:

  • Text-based applications (documents, Internet, etc)
  • Viewing and simple editing of photographs
  • Movies and games that do not require a fast matrix
