HP w2207 22-inch Widescreen LCD monitor: Worth every penny

HP makes some good stuff. The HP w2207 22-inch widescreen monitor is no exception. In fact, in a world literally awash with LCD displays this one stands out and deserves to be noticed. And why not? This fully opposable 22-inch monitor has connections for both DVI-D and VGA, USB 2.0 devices, and has a bunch of great features that make it an excellent choice, whether you want to run one display or two. (Go for two!)

There are Monitors, and then there is THIS Monitor

HP w2207 in Horizontal orientationThe HP w2207 has some impressive specifications. It has a screen resolution of 1680×1050. This is enough to provide sharp, realistic graphics with minimal ghosting. It has a contrast ratio of 1000:1, so characters on screen show up off of the background. Add a pixel pitch of .28 and a 5ms response time, and you’ve got the makings of a great LCD desktop. There’s also connectivity for 2 USB 2.0 devices and a handy cable management system. You can connect the HP w2207 to your computer via DVI-D connection or the venerable VGA port.

The HP w2207 can swivel for full horizontal or vertical orientationThe HP w2207 22-inch widescreen can be adjusted to either full landscape or portrait mode. This is useful because different onscreen applications work best with different screen orientations. For instance, if you’re surfing the web, it makes sense to orient your monitor in the way that the Internet is laid out, i.e. vertically. Then there’s the horizontal for games, graphics, or watching a movie.

Samsung 204BW 20-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor: Affordably Beautiful

Samsung 204BW 20-inch Widescreen LCD MonitorFinally, Crystal clear desktop visuals are possible, thanks to the gorgeous 204BW 20-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor. Just by looking at it, you can tell it’s a work of art (an affordable one). If you think the jet-black finish and sleek, modern look are nice, wait until you turn it on. We promise, your jaw is going to drop.

The Specs to Produce Great Images…

The first thing you notice in the Samsung 204BW Widescreen is its size compared to your average desktop monitor. With an aspect ratio of 16:10 and 1680 x 1050 screen resolution, it makes for the perfect place to enjoy your favorite DVD movies or games. The cinematic experience delivered is one-of-a-kind and hard to match, at any price point (let alone this one).

The 204BW from Samsung is fully compatible with Windows VistaThe large sized of the screen also affords users the opportunity to increase productivity. The extra workspace it provides makes it easier to edit videos, photos and work with CAD programs. Detail is critical when it comes to producing media content, and with smaller monitors it’s often hard to see the minute elements that either make or break your work.

And the Technology to Back it Up

Displaying fast-moving images (such as in movies and games) requires a monitor with a fast response time. Slower response times result in washed-out images that lessen a film or game’s visual impact. Because the Samsung 204BW Widescreen has a 6ms response time, the transitions from image to image is very, very smooth.

The 204BW’s beautiful imagery can be directly attributed to the superior Samsung technology incorporated within it, such as MagicBright 2, which provides optimal presets for viewing the web, games, sports, and movies. MagicColor is a dynamic feature that calculates color saturation and adjusts to increase visual clarity accordingly. MagicTune allows users to achieve the optimal display setting with a few short clicks of the mouse. And the Samsung 204BW comes with both VGA and DVI connections, for use with a wide variety of machines.

Acer AL2216WBD 22-inch Monitor: For LCD Growing Pains

acer-monitor.jpgI’ve finally got fed up with my 17-inch monitor and I find myself in search of a widescreen display that offers a high resolution, fast response time and isn’t loaded with extra features. Most importantly, I want to upgrade without it causing me to totally empty out my piggy bank.

So, during my search I came across the Acer AL2216WBD 22-inch DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor, a display that has all the essentials of what I need in a great LCD monitor. Monitors are getting pretty loaded with all kinds of features, so it pays to know which ones matter to you the most.

Widescreen Size, Widescreen Graphics

If you already have a PC that supplies your speakers and has plenty of USB ports, then a plain (i.e. without such accoutrements) monitor will be all you really need. The Acer AL2216WBD is certainly a great candidate for what I’m looking for. With 22-inches of high quality display (1680×1050 max resolution) and a fast 5ms response rate, not only can I get my graphics work done stupendously, but I can take five playing my latest game with pristine clarity. Admiring my travel photos on a colorific screen with 700:1 contrast ratio that emits high level of brilliant brightness is pretty hot, too!


Pay particular attention to the CD in this picture. Compare it to the size of the LCD Monitor. Now do the same your monitor. Hmmmm….

This Acer’s clean design offers a lightweight and efficient monitor that’s mostly about no-frills performance. And that makes it a great choice, as far as I’m concerned. I know I rarely have the muscle to be lifting really heavy monitors, especially when I get the “re-organize the office” bug! Only con I noticed: A bit stiff on the swivel, but at this price that minor detail can be easily overlooked! DVDs and games look stunning and there’s no ghosting or streaking detected. For a great cinematic experience at a reasonable price, the Acer AL2216WBD 22-inch Widescreen is an impressive monitor. I‘m off to get one now…

iTiger–The best way to get Apple accessories for less: Monitors

Apple Inc. is big on everyone’s wish list this year, so get ready to fork over the green.

I’ve decided to spend the week showcasing a few things that are designed specifically for use with Apple products, as well as some that will save you money over Apple’s version.

Whether you’re after more storage or more noise, it’s undeniable that Apple has made some serious moves this year. Have you scratched your iPhone yet? I promise that you will. Run out of storage space because you’ve gone a bit nuts on iTunes? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. Amazed at how much an Apple brand monitor (pssst! They call them displays. Don’t make this mistake in the iStore, they’ll confiscate your earbuds.) costs? Me too. In fact, that’s what inspired me to write up this little series of mine. Enjoy!
