Thinkvision L220X


The L220x is an exceptional display. In my informal evaluation, the monitor produced very vivid colors and rich-looking images. Its very high resolution probably accounts for its outstanding image quality.      

Great cable management Fully adjustable

Unintuitive menus Expensive

Priced at nearly $500, this display is more expensive than most monitors of comparable size. Its very high native resolution results in very pleasing image quality, however

Lenovo ThinkVision L220x


A newcomer to the Lenovo ThinkVision family of LCD monitors, the Lenovo ThinkVision L220x ($499.99 list) delivers outstanding color and text reproduction and offers a bevy of business-centric features, including auto-pivot capabilities, a USB hub, and...

Very good overall image quality. Wide-gamut color technology. Fully adjustable stand

Expensive. Slightly weak light grayscale performance

With its superb image quality, wide-gamut color technology, and flexible stand, there's a lot to like about the Lenovo L220x business LCD.

Lenovo ThinkVision L220x Monitor: Comeback of PVA Matrix?


Lenovo ThinkVision L220x is an almost unique monitor for two reasons. Its 22-inch screen supports 1920x1200 resolution and is built using S-PVA matrix with remarkable viewing angles. Read more in our review!

The Lenovo ThinkVision L220x would make a very good monitor for both home and office use if it were not for one problem. It features a neat, modest and appealing design and excellent ergonomics. Its response time is very low, but its main advantage is...

Lenovo ThinkVision L220x Review


The ThinkVision L220x is the only 22-inch monitor available today with a 1920 x 1200 resolution and support for full 1080p video content. Is it up to today's standards with HDMI and DisplayPort emerging on new displays? Read on to find out.

The only 22-inch LCD with 1920 x 1200 resolution ; Vibrant and rich colors ; Ergonomic and flexible stand

Lenovo ThinkVision L220x Wide LCD Monitor


Despite its all-business attire, the Lenovo ThinkVision L220x Wide offers very good performance that's suitable for non-work use.

Good color and grayscale performance; 1080p, 1,920x1,200 resolution; flexible stand that pivots

No HDMI; Weakness with light blue when using an analog connection

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Lenovo ThinkVision L220x


This is a great monitor -- superb image quality and vivid color. It gives you resolution typical of a 24" wide screen (1920x1200) in a 22" package. [Note that the PriceGrabber description has the wrong resolution for this monitor -- it is 1920x1200,...

Superb image quality (S-PVA screen). Resolution (1920x1200) and screen size (22"). Good ergonomic design. Quality of construction. Ability to tilt

For some, combination of higher resolution and smaller screen size (22" screen with resolution typical of a 24" monitor) may make onscreen images too small

Decent Desktop Display - Limited Connectivity


A WUXGA 1920x1200 display is typically only found in displays at sizes 24 inches and up. The Lenovo 220x manages to squeeze that down into a 22" package. The controls and buttons on the display carry over the heritage of the IBM ThinkVision ...

WUXGA Resolution in a 22" widescreen.

Limited inputs, rather mediocre display.

Consumer review by:



Most displays are the cheap, poor quality TN panels. The price jump from a TN panel to anything better is often a deal breaker. This monitor is the exception to that rule. Its S-PVA panel is much higher in quality than the more common TN panel.I can...

Lenovo L220x


Easy to set-up, OSD buttons clearly labelled, displayed deep and rich colours

Lacks an HDMI port, the price

There are other -- and larger -- HD-level monitors available for the money. However, if you're looking for a really high-quality 22in display, the Lenovo L220x Wide will give you something great to look at all of the time

Lenovo L220x Wide 22in widescreen monitor


Lenovo's ThinkVision L220x Wide display doesn't qualify as a budget 22in widescreen display

Easy to set-up, OSD buttons clearly labelled, displayed deep and rich colours

Lacks an HDMI port, the price

There are other -- and larger -- HD-level monitors available for the money. However, if you're looking for a really high-quality 22in display, the Lenovo L220x Wide will give you something great to look at all of the time


Product Specifications

ThinkVision L220x Wide monitor, the market's first 22-inch widescreen monitor with a WUXGA resolution screen. Small enough to fit on a desk, the monitor provides rich colors and high resolution drawing less power than 24-inch monitors.
