5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality monitor, 16 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ilyama E2208HDD 22 inch Wide LCD 1080p DVI Monitor - Black (Personal Computers)
Length:: 2:58 Mins

I was looking for a reasonable sized monitor to replace my really old one that I have had for years. My main criteria were budget, size and quality and I am really pleased to say that this one matched my requirements for all three.

The monitor is stated as 22 inches but if you measure it it is just a tiny bit smaller. The screen is surrounded by a thin black plastic outer casing which looks sleek, shiny and very modern on my desk. Because the outer plastic casing is so thin around the edge of the screen your eye isn't distracted by the plastic as is often the case with much wider casings.

The picture on the monitor is clear, the colours bright and clear and the refresh rate is good, I haven't noticed any flickering from it.

I use it for regular day-to-day work creating documents, spreadsheets, updating a website. I play online computer games at night and watch videos and TV programmes. It copes equally well with all of those different activities.

There are different display modes, for example, eco mode to save power, gaming mode, scenery mode etc. I have only flicked through these and the main thing I've noticed is that the screen brightness changes depending on the mode you choose. For the most part I have kept it in standard mode which seems to give a good overall display for my various activities.

If I had to identify a niggle it would be that there doesn't seem to be much flexibility to tilt the monitor for individual requirements. This hasn't however caused me an issue hence the five star rating.
