Summary: Such screens tend to produce richer colors and a deeper black than matte panels, and the HD2201 is no exception. The monitor is laden with connection options, though it lacks optimized presets for different multimedia content. Even given its technical failings, the HD2201’s splendid darker coloration and input options are enough to squeak it past displays like Planar’s PL2210MW—but barely so.
Pros: Good darks; plenty of inputs.
Cons: Noticeable greyscale banding, color tracking issues.
