Summary: You shouldn't be expecting too much for £145, but the Asus VH222H delivers more than you have a right to expect. The viewing angles could be a problem, but the varied colour palette, high resolution support and excellent connectivity make this a notable screen for the money.
Excerpt: Asus's full HD, 22in VH22H is the only monitor we've seen with an S/PDIF audio output. The thinking is that you can run HDMI to the monitor and then send the audio to a surround sound system. It's an interesting idea, but is ultimately flawed: S/PDIF can't carry full HD audio as HDMI can, and your monitor is unlikely to be closer to your amplifier than the device producing the sound.
Summary: Several 21.5in screens like this Asus VH222H now boast ‘full-HD' (a resolution of 1920x1080), and there's little reason why you can't use such a screen to land a sizzling hi-def experience for a virtual pittance.
