The L204WS is the cheapest of the 20in widescreen models and costs less than most of the 19in displays, so we weren't expecting much.

It has only an analogue VGA connection and very few extra features, but it was clear during our tests that this display is far better than its price suggests.

We had to lower the contrast from the factory level, which was difficult with the rear-mounted buttons, and the monitor suffers from muddy dark tones. It's miles ahead of the other 20in models for colour and sharpness, though, and its colours have a vibrancy lacking in the others. Its dynamic contrast function works well, adjusting its contrast depending on the brightness of the scene up to 5,000:1.

The picture presets are terrible, but if you stick with the normal mode you'll be delighted with the quality. If you can't stretch to a 22in screen, this beats all but ViewSonic's more expensive VX1940w for image quality, and all the 19in and 20in screens for value.
