Which 22 inch to choose? Six monitors tested with reaction times from 2 to 5 ms
by Vincent Alzieu
Published on December 19, 2006

Conclusion

All monitors tested are based on the same panel technology (TN). In consequence results are more or less the same. This doesn’t mean that we don’t prefer some monitors based on the requirements of each user. If you are looking for:

  • a big monitor as fast as possible, the Asus MW221u is the next reference for its kind. Reaction time is comparable to the Nec MultiSync 20WGX² with two more inches and a price 100€ less… this is a bargain! Also, the design and the finishing touches of the monitor are really nice. The most important drawback compared to the NEC is the viewing angles are like most TNs very narrow, especially the vertical ones. Compared to the other 22"s, it’s just unfortunate that colors are so inaccurate.

  • the best deal, the monitor with the best quality/price ratio: Fujitu-Siemens L22-1W. It is the cheapest and we very much like the thin metal bezel. And there is the optional zero dead pixel warranty. It is a good thing that a manufacturer finally decided to do something about this.

  • the 22" monitor that we would choose regardless of the price and reaction time is the Samsung 225BW. We are now used to vertically adjusting our monitors as here in the office we all use two monitors simultaneously. Not having this option would be difficult for us.

    And, even if we are going to praise all monitors, we have to point out the good color rendering of the Acer. It’s just unfortunate it doesn’t have much more.

    If you are allergic to the downsides inherent to TN technology, such as the viewing angles, for now you will have to choose a 20" (see our article published in May). They aren´t necessarily cheaper, and are smaller, but they do have the same resolution.
