HP w22 Review


HP tries to pull a quick one on the consumer with their w22 22-inch LCD monitor. Featuring an attractive 5ms response rate and a 1680×1050 resolution, the positive energy stops there. Sure the $400 U.S. price tag is attractive, but as the old saying...

Aesthetically pleasing; built-in speakers

Cannot swivel or adjust height; DVI cable not included; faded colors

Unless you get the w22 as part of a computer package, this is one monitor you are going to want to avoid spending money on.

I've had this monitor for over a year now and have not had any issues. The picture is crisp with no fading. If only I could figure out how to set the resolution with XP so it looked normal.

I bought this monitor without knowing anything about it. The colors are a little washed out but when I picked up a Spyder2 monitor calibration tool it fixed the problem. Probably there are better ones out there but it has a pretty good...

Hi Folks,

Consumer review by: Dave (

HP w22


I have this monitor and for what it is, it fills the bill. Absolutely nothing but “meat and potatoes” wide screen viewing at (for me) a decent resolution. I look at the monitor for hours at a time (proof of the matter – flight simulator X long trips)....

While it's true that vertical scan frequency is not supposed to be an issue with LCD monitors because they simply lack the phosphors of a CRT monitor, the vertical scan frequency does have a maximum refresh rate (in the case of the w22, 75Hz) to...

The reviewer says ” HP recommends that you use this monitor at the 1680×1050 resolution at 60hz, which is a very low refresh rate using the analog cable. You would have to lower the resolution even lower, at 1440×900 to get a faster 75Hz refresh rate.”

This review finally puts it into perspective. I got one of these and thought it must be a good or at least decent monitor since it came with my PC, I was wrong. It takes forever to warm up, and since it doesn't adjust, I had to rig it up to see it...

HP w22


I was happy with the monitor but after a year and a half it crapped out. I'm getting all these diagonal lines and the monitor turns on and off all the time sporadically. HP told me it was out of warranty and there is nothing they can do. I'm going to...

Wow, thanks for an honest review finally. I got this monitor with a PC package we bought, and it's horrid. The colors always look washed out and the built-in speakers sound terrible, plus you cannot add a subwoofer. I was considering a Samsung monitor...
