Product Description

All BenQ E series LCD Monitors display images in Full HD, or 1920x1080 native resolution. What that means for you is a vibrant picture, lush texture, and complete visual immersion. The monitor's 16:9 aspect ratio eliminates the distortion that is created on traditional 16:10 monitors, which are forced to stretch the image or add black bars to accommodate the wide-screen format. Many of the newest games and movies are being released in Full HD, and with the E series you'll be ready to enjoy them all. The aes

Received the screen yesterday, and am surprised at the quality of this display, I'd been toying with buying an LG as our last screen lasted 5 years with no trouble but I couldn't find a comparable LG screen for this price.

This has 4 video inputs, 2 HDMI, 1 DVI and 1 VGA so you can feasibly connect 4 bits of kit to it, so I'll be plugging my PS3 in later!

It also has an audio line in and a line out jacks so you can plug your PC sound into it and then out to an external set of speakers (or headphones), which you'll want to do because the built in ones are a bit rubbish, very much like laptop speakers.

Finally the screen has a USB hub with two ports on the rear and two on the side, oh and it's wall mountable too!

Shame about the speakers, hence the 4 stars but well worth the money, even if they did drop the price by a tenner a day after it arrived, D'oh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great external display for MacBook 28 Oct 2009
I use it with my MacBook as a secondary monitor (2 yr old MacBook 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo with 3 GB). Great having all the extra screen real estate. I was worried the MacBook might struggle to run such a large screen resolution but it is very sharp & has no problems either on its own with the MacBook in clamshell mode or running MacBook display and this monitor. Great for iPhoto editing. BBC HD feeds look lovely & perfectly formatted on the widescreen. Built-in speaker isn't great but is louder than the MacBook's. The styling is smart, the stand takes up very little space on a desk & tilt easily adjustable. The screen spec is the same as the E2200HD which was highly rated by PCPro but this has much better styling and a few more connection options.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what I need it to! 5 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Just for clarification, I'm not very technological in my knowledge, so the way I ended up buying this product was reading pretty much every Internet review I could find on this and 2 other BenQ monitors (plus 1 Samsung). I then decided I wanted to spend around 120 and the one I ended up buying was this E2220HD. My list of requirements were full HD, VGA/HDMI inputs, wall mountable and compatable with Windows 7 (64bit)... all in a screen under 22". I felt for what else was on the market at this price (and at this time), it was the overall best option... and I am very pleased I went for it! The monitor instantly recognised Windows 7 and only slight picture adjustments were needed to tailor to my needs and what I was using it for. It looks great and picture quality is excellent. I use mainly for surfing the net/emails/Microsoft Office programs/watching music/films... I am pleased to say I can do all of these looking at a great picture! My only drawback would be that it has a high energy consumption compared to other monitors (I like to look after the environment and save money on my bills). I would have gone for the almost indentical 21.5" LED backlight model over this but they can't be wall mounted for some very annoying reason (or at least not when I was looking to purchase)!!!

So overall, I think a great monitor for a great price for your everyday computing needs. Amazon were of course flawless in their quality of service, speed and delivery of the product... as they are everytime I shop with them. I hope this helps someone looking for an honest opinion on a general everyday use monitor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 loves this monitor 17 Feb 2010
If you're looking for a brilliant monitor which installs immediately and painlessly on a Windows 7 PC this would be a good choice. After a bad experience with a non-compatible 1920x1080 monitor I decided to buy the Benq on the basis that it's W7 compatible. It installed in 5 seconds, and is a lovely screen that should satisfy the most critical user. Can't fault the design or performance, so top marks to Benq. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good clear display 2 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
A simple product to setup, which, so far, has proved to be an immense improvement over the 7 year old IIyama CRT screen. The display is clear, with no dead pixels or fuzzy spots. I have no real complaints, given the price I paid for it. The only reason I wouldn't give it five stars is because the plastic stand seems a little too flexible, and the height is not adjustable. Otherwise, if you're looking for a good screen at a great price, this is one to consider: I would recommend it for your shortlist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Monitor 30 April 2010
Been using the monitor for a few weeks now, not had any problems with it.

Has a bit of backlight bleeding when the screen is black. Speakers are alright, though a seperate speaker system would be better

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my PS3 1 Aug 2011
By M Smith
Verified Purchase
I've been using this monitor for 11 days. it has been used exclusively with my PS3 via a HDMI connection. I have no previous experience with High Definition. I like this monitor a lot.

Cables supplied: VGA/VGA, 3.5mm/3.5mm audio, USBB/USBA, UK power, EU power.

As reviewer James Stevens pointed out, HDMI auto switching is disabled by default so you have to press enter a few times until you're on the right input. All of the buttons are located on the right hand side and they are unintuitive, expect to fumble through the menus to get what you want.

This monitor is positively bursting with ports. It has 3.5mm audio in/out sockets at the back, as well as a 3.5mm headphone socket (audio out) on the side for easier access. Just as well really, because the internal speakers are awful. If you plan on anything beyond basic PC usage I wouldn't rely on the E2220HD for your sound. The monitor comes with a neat headphone hook that clips into the vents on the back, a nice touch. I tried to run USB powered speakers through the line out & USB ports, couldn't get it working - until I realised I had to plug the USB input into my ps3 (or pc) to power the USB outputs.

(also, on the subject of ports the product description mentions the VGA port supports the Wii - this is flat out wrong. The Wii wasn't designed to work with PC monitors and attempts to do so cannot guarantee results).

The stand is fairly lightweight, you'll need two hands to do tilt adjustments.

The most important thing, of course, is the picture. Vibrant, crisp, detailed, just great. I will say that on a monitor this size, the difference between 720p and 1080p is virtually zero, both look amazing. The monitor has 5 presets for display: Standard, Movie, Game, Photo, sRGB. This is nice and straightforward. I have seen no lag / input delay at all while gaming.

The price has gone up since I bought it, but it's still a great deal and an easy 5 stars :)
