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
Conclusion: The HP w2207 is a great 22-inch LCD monitor that’s well-designed and aesthetically pleasing. With its low-glare, glossy screen, 5ms response time, and 1000:1 contrast ratio, the w2007’s operating specs are just what most people need. The added USB 2.0 hub and speakers (though marginal) are also important additions. At an average price of $350 USD, it certainly isn’t the cheapest around, but then again, you’re probably not in the market for “cheap.
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.
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.
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
