outstanding monitor.

 

Monitor connected to my macbook. Watching dvds is a pleasure now. Plug and play, no nonsense. More room to work.

Value for money. Brightness and colors are good. Plug an play. Bigger real estate, I can see more, do more. Intuitive menu

No dvi connection. NIce to have an alternative ; Non-swivel, but with this size you don't really need it

Not Impressed

 

Kind of monitor that is sold with HP packages to people who don't know any better. Buy the way, 1440 x 900 is the recommended resolution from the HP site. Don't expect more out of something that is not capable of producing.

Cheap, for a basic user who want's a larger screen

Bought cheap for a friend's build at the local store ; Waste of a good video card, no DVI input

NOT 1440 x 900 recommended

 

I should have checked out HP's site for the true specs but its rare that the EGG has the specs wrong. If I would have seen that its really a standard 22 inch i would have bought one cheaper, my parents can't see at high resolutions. The 1 egg deduction...

Monitor looks good, has tilt, and overall is a good picture

This is not a recommended 1440 x 900 resolution but rather the overall standard 1680 x 1050. The monitor is capable of displaying that resolution but its not native which does tend to blurr a bit versus the higher resolution

Perfect for 'mature' users

 

Didn't try/install the windows utilities on disk. Would have paid a couple buck more for a stand like I've seen for other wifi usb dongles.

This is the perfect monitor for our 'mature' users: a huge 22" wide with a 1440x900 resolution, same resolution as the 19" wide we have been buying. everybody wants a big flat wide screen monitor but then complain that 'everything is so small'. you...

Let me first preface this by saying that I live and die by my multi-monitor setup. For years, I have always had 2 identical monitors to do cut and paste work with, programming and debugging, etc. When I started having issues with BOTH of my ...

HP L2208w 22" LCD Monitor

 

This monitor is terrific. Set up was a snap, it looks elegant, and the controls are easy to use. It has an auto-setup that worked fine; I fiddled with some settings after the auto, but couldn't improve anything. Highly recommended.
