22-inch LCD Monitor Roundup
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Keeping busy as usual, X-Bit Labs has posted a 22 LCD monitor comparison, featuring models from Benq, Dell, LG, and Samsung.
Heres what they had to say:
The conclusion to my todays tests is not an encouraging one. There is none among the half a dozen 22 monitors I have tested that does not have this or that serious drawback.
First of all, monitors with this screen diagonal are currently produced with TN matrixes only. It means that if you want a monitor with really large viewing angles youll have to consider 20-21 or 23-24 models.
And finally, all the tested models have gross problems with color reproduction setup. TN matrixes are not actually meant for professional work with images, yet I think a home monitor must deliver true-to-life colors instead of queerly shaped gamma curves and a color temperature dispersion of 2000-3000K.
Harsh words, but inherently true. TN panels are inferior to PVA, MVA, and IPS panels. I have never been a big fan of 22 LCD monitors since they offer no resolution increase over 20 models, and have a noticeably worse dot pitch. Either save your money and get a high-quality 20-inch unit, or spend a little extra and get a 24-incher with the splendid 1920 x 1200 resolution.
