Excerpt: I had bought this HP w2207 22" inch LCD monitor last March 2008 to replace my old Acer 19" and to serve as my main external monitor. I was in need of a higher resolution and larger screen since an extra desktop real estate would really help during Photoshop work sessions. Initially, I was torn between Acer P223W and this one but decided to go the HP route.

Summary: In DisplayMate, it was the least impressive of the group, thanks to some backlight blotchiness on a totally dark screen, minor color-tracking irregularities, and banding in grayscales of 128 or more steps. While these factors tempered our enthusiasm for the monitor, they didn’t mar our experience in games, movies, and other applications.
Pros: The neck is versatile in its adjustable-ness.
Cons: The glossy screen creates glorious contrast--but great glare too.
Summary: The only problem with this monitor is its reflective screen, which can be a bit of a nuisance in a well-lit environment. Apart from that, its colours and luminance were exceptional in all our tests. It's well-suited to viewing and editing photos, as well as movie-watching and game-playing.
Pros: Exceptional colour reproduction, Can be viewed in portrait mode, Built-in USB hub
Cons: Noticeable purple fringing on text, Some noise in dark-grey colours, Screen is too reflective
Excerpt: The 22in HP w2207h has all the features you could want in a good monitor. It comes through with great image quality, particularly with text, and it provides tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjustments.
