Conclusion: Dell ST2220T is the second generation multi-touch monitor from Dell and one of the important improvements is the new stand that allows users to tilt the monitor all the way down to table level. The infrared multi-touch system has been improved compared the SX2210T and it’s a great add-on for casual use and even media center use but it’s not as responsive and accurate as the capacitive systems found in for example tablets.
Pros: IPS panel and picture quality, Color accuracy, Ergonomic adjustability, No clouding, Viewing angles, No “dirty screen” look
Cons: Glossy screen and reflections, Black level, Shadow detailing not perfect, Some overdrive trailing, Purple tint from the side
Summary: The ST2220T is certainly passable as a touchscreen monitor, with the IPS screen going a long way to increasing its appeal. Some poor design choices hold it back from greatness, though, and unless you have a burning desire for a touchscreen, you should be investing your money in a normal monitor.
Pros: IPS screen brings great colour and viewing angles, Great warranty, although dead pixel policy isn't as good as other Dell monitors
Cons: Speakers are horrible, Inset screen makes corners difficult to touch, meaning that important UI elements become annoying to use, No 1:1 scaling mode, Poor HDMI performance, Auto-switching inputs cause frustrations, First light bleed we've seen on an IPS monitor, High power consumption
Conclusion: I really enjoyed using the Dell ST2220T actually, as it was something a little different to other screens we have tested. If I ignore the touch-screen capabilities for now, the performance of the screen itself was excellent I thought. Factory set up of gamma and colour temperature were very good and colour accuracy was decent enough for most casual users. The black depth and contrast ratio were excellent as well for an IPS panel which was a great result.
Pros: Good default setup and great black depth / contrast ratio, Fast response time and low input lag, Glossy screen coating improves the feel of the screen, and touch screen support is very useable
Cons: Disfunctional dynamic contrast ratio, Although offering a decent tilt range, no heigh adjustment from the stand, Reflections potentially an issue due to glossy screen coating
Summary: Nå bringer Dell peketeknologien inn på Skrivebordet med sin nye 21,5” ST2220T. I tillegg til å være en helt tradisjonell skjerm med gode bildeegenskaper har den også en berøringsfølsom overflate. Dell har til og med lagd en fot som kan senke skjermen nesten helt ned til bordhøyde. Skjermen krever ikke et eget oppsett, men forutsetter at du bruker Windows 7.
Pros: Høy bildekvalitet, Naturlige farger, Krever ikke oppsett
