At A Glance
Although the E2420L's features are limited, its on-screen performance was solid in tests, making this bare-bones monitor a good budget choice.
The monitor's 5ms response time is essential for hard-core gamers, and it's also great for watching high-intensity action movies with fast movement. It offers a high level of brightness with a 300 cd/m2 (candela per square meter) rating and a 700:1 contrast ratio. The screen also has a 170-degree horizontal and 160-degree vertical viewing angle.
