My husband recently created an office area in the showroom for our small family business. We occasionally need to show customers images and details of products from manufacturers sites online or brochures, so we wanted a monitor for the new computer which would give a good clear and accessible view. Also, if you have read any of my previous reviews you would know we like to choose products which have been produced with environmental concerns in mind.
We chose the Dell professional 22 inch widescreen LCD monitor. When it arrived we found the stand easily slotted into place and it installed very quickly onto our computer (windows 7) with a VGA cable. No disc, reading of handbook or time consuming procedure necessary. It stands sturdily and doesn't tend to wobble or lean as can often be the case with large monitors. It measures 30cm high, 51cm wide and 18cm deep and is made with a matt black plastic frame and base with a silver grey stand and swivel section. We were concerned it would take up quite a considerable amount of space on our desk but in fact the upright design of the back means it can be positioned closely against the wall and the surface space taken we believe is very reasonable for such a large monitor.
We are impressed with the stylish simplicity of design and general feel of quality to this monitor. It can be tilted into the exact position you may require. The monitor can be adjusted in terms of angle and height as well as rotated from a landscape view to a portrait view. This works very well for viewing by more than one person and is ideal for our business presentation requirements. It is also useful for establishing a position for viewing either when seated or standing which can be suitable for good posture, my husband and I are delighted with this as we both tend to suffer regularly with back problems.
The picture quality is sharp and clear. The colour setting was too vivid for us initially but we found this was easily adjusted as are other settings such as depth of light and image contrast. I find the light warm and the brightness from this monitor comfortable on my eyes to view, I think this is due to the LED back light. We especially like the aspect that this monitor has been produced using a certain amount of recycled materials and with the LED back light panel it means the monitor runs on low energy consumption. The glass panel is mercury and arsenic free.
We are thoroughly pleased with this monitor, to be honest I can't praise it highly enough, it provides exactly what we need and had hoped for in terms of performance. The image quality is superb, with no distortion. We are impressed with not only with the simplicity of style and general feel of quality but the adaptability of use, plus there is the good feeling factor of using a more environmentally friendly product.
I highly recommend the Dell P2211H Professional Widescreen monitor for both the home or office.
