Thin Slice of LED Goodness Brightens Up the Home Office
12 August 2010
Excerpt: My life was about to be complete. I had just received the Knight Rider DVD box set and was gearing up my home office (which doubles as a media center) for a weekend of curly mullets, fast cars and smarmy talking computers. I just had one problem: My monitor was literally a holdover from the same era. I could almost hear KITT, “Your tech is obsolete, Michael.” Thankfully, to help in my quest to attain true Hasslehoff nirvana, I tested BenQ’s V2200H monitor.
Pros: Very deep blacks and even lighting across the entire screen. Nonglare matte screen finish is great for mixed lighting environments. Good menu system and color adjustments.
Cons: Wimpy, wobbly base feels like it’s ready to tip over when you bump the screen. Audio port emits buzz when the screen switches modes. Senseye default color settings are cartoon-like.
