Picture Quality

Now, the very next spec of a Display that defines picture quality is Color Gamut.

Medion has not provided a color gamut specification for this Display. So we have to take a guess.

Since its a upper-mid-range Monitor, it can be assumed that its equivalent sRGB color gamut coverage would be beyond 100%. The color accuracy on this display will be Lifelike!

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a Monitor is a measure of the range of colors that it can display.

In other words, it determines the ability of a monitor to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a Monitor with good color accuracy.

Next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a Display

A Display with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and can bleed backlight as in the images below:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The static contrast ratio of above Display is 800:1. So make sure you get a Display with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

Also, a Display with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.

This monitor features a static contrast ratio of 2500 : 1, enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 350 nits. The backlight used on its panel is W-LED.

Gaming Performance

If you need a display primarily for gaming, you would want to take a Monitor that features the lowest input lag and response times.

The input lag on this Monitor is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Pick this one if you are a gamer.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the Monitor. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, look for a Monitor that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The horizontal and vertical measurements of the this Display are 23.82 inches and 19.61 inches ( adjustable upto 4.33 in ) respectively. It is just 3.94 inches thick.

Overall this monitor weighs 5.7 kilograms (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 4.1 Kgs.

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 100 x 100 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel or Pivot are not supported on this Monitor, but it does support Tilt.

Utilities

For display connectivity, Medion has provided two HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort 1.4 port on this Monitor.

However, USB ports are not available on this unit.

The monitor also comes with 2 x 2W built-in speakers.

As for power consumption, on average, this monitor consumes about 64W and on standby, it uses 0.3 W.
