      This is big, and it’s heavy, don’t break you’re back picking it up, and hopefully you have a table strong enough to support the weight of this beast. In the box you get the monitor and stand which you attach, a d-sub video and a power cable. Also on the back of the monitor are 5 BNC connectors for a different type of video cable. Setting up is straight forward, only thing to consider is do you have the desk space available to put this monitor. Windows automatically detects the monitor, no drivers necessary, though you do get a disc with the monitor.

      This monitor is capable of displaying a resolution of 2048 by 1536, but 1280 by 1024, or 1600 by 2000 is the recommended resolution you can really work at efficiently on this, without causing your eyes strain on a 22” monitor.

      Screen quality is excellent, colours are bright, text is crisp, screen refresh is very quick, I use 1280x1024 at 85Hertz to no problem at all. When you switch on the monitor, or you degauss, you will know about it, its load. Monitor has 4 buttons on the front, menu, plus and minus, and big power button. Iiyama menus have always been simple to use to calibrate your monitor compared to other manufacturer. Very easy to change brightness and contrast levels, and alter screen positioning and stretch to fit whole.

      Does feel like your sitting in front of a TV, not a bad feeling I guess. The Monitor can be rotated or tilted ok but you need to give it a little effort to start it off, but if you do prefer to look up at monitor screens compared to looking ahead or looking down, you will need to get a monitor stand, and once that can support the weight and wide enough to support the monitor stand itself. I also have this monitor next to a 19” LCD Panel and a 15” TV, and there appears to be no interference to the monitor screen, picture stays rock solid.

      Nothing much else I can say on this apart from I could not do my work if it was not for this monitor. I use 3D computer modeling packages, and the size and colour accuracy of this monitor is highly important to me, plus I am looking at the monitor almost 9 hours a day, and because of the high refresh rate, I do not suffer from monitor fatigue as much on the less quality ones.

      The Vision Master Pro 510 is a hefty 22-inch screen that certainly should take up all your desk space, although it's worth noting that the viewable area is the same 20 inches as most 21-inch monitors. Once you've got it out of the box (a significant achievement in itself with a monitor of this size, because it weights a monstrous 33kg) and connected to your PC, you can start to take advantage of its capabilities. Like the maximum resolution of 2,048 x 1,536, for example, which is displayed at a refresh rate of 80Hz. As with most monitors, though, I found the top resolution a little uncomfortable to read and I'm happier at 1,800 x 1,440 or 1,600 x 1,280. Until I tried playing a few first-person shooter games, anyway - viewing them on a big screen is such an immersive experience that it's easy to end up feeling a little dizzy. If you tend to suffer from motion sickness, you need to be careful. When trying out more conventional applications, I was extremely happy with image stability, sharpness and vivid colours, and there's no distortion thanks to the Diamondtron flat-screen display. Text is a different matter. Small characters tend to be fuzzy, a problem I failed to resolve despite tweaking. Larger fonts are fine, but this is still a monitor where you might want to try before you buy.

      I own a 17" Iiyama which I've had for over 3 years and I've never seen a monitor which comes close to it's picture quality. Based on my personal experience I got a 22" Iiyama for work. It's picture quality is even better than my 17" Iiyama. Using it with a Matrox G400 graphics card gives stunnnig results. The highest resolution I can use it comfortably is 1600x1280 which looks great. Any higher than that really isn't usable. One thing to note if you're thinking of buying one of these beasts, it's HEAVY! I can't remember the exact weight but you'll need two people to get it out of the box and onto the desk. The monitor has an on-screen menu like most nowadays which lets you configure virtually everything and is very easy to use. If you've got the money you won't be disappointed with the monitor.
