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.
Excerpt: Quick! Name that one piece of PC hardware that will automatically garner the most "oohs" and "aahs" from enthusiasts and casual-users alike. No, it's probably not the glow-in-the-dark water cooling system or bright LEDs shining from the multiple fans in your windowed case. The quickest path to glory is buying a brand new, flat, large, widescreen monitor.
Pros: Briteview techology, Pivots from landscape to portrait, Fast pixel response time, HDCP compliant, Customizeable using EasyClip
Cons: Warranty and support, MyDisplay software, Speakers
Excerpt: HP’s oh-so-affordable 22-inch display isn’t the least bit spartan. It’s attractively styled with reflective-black and anodized-silver trimmings, and it has a dual-hinged neck for height adjustment; tilt, swivel, and rotate functionality; and numerous welcome acronyms: DVI, VGA, two USB ports, HDCP support, and OSD controls. A built-in speaker is hardly worth mentioning.
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
Summary: Этот функционально богатый монитор с очень удобной подставкой можно порекомендовать тем, чья деятельность связана с офисными работами, и тем кто не предъявляет особенно жестких требований к качеству изображения.
Pros: Удобная подставка. USB-концентратор.
Cons: Из-за малых углов обзора у TN-матрицы заметно различалась цветовая температура вверху и внизу экрана. Не назовешь монитор и слишком быстрым.
