== Quality and durability ==
The picture quality of this monitor is OK. Its about what you would expect from a normal monitor, nothing more nothing less. The build quality is fairly good, it doesn't seem cheaply made. Durability wise I have used this monitor at work for just under 2 years and ive had no issues with it at all, although i haven't had the chance to transport it so this may cause issues. The rounded edges of this monitor are very different than the usual pointed edges and id imagine that makes transportation nicer.
== Price and Availability ==
Bog standard monitor price. Can do better can do worse for the money spent on this. I found amazon often had the best price of this unless you wanted to buy 2nd hand. You can find this monitor in some electronics shops but not all. However most online websites will have this device.
I have had this monitor for around a year now and it has surpassed my expectations in every way!
From the first minutes I took it out of the box, the monitor screams executive, pricey, beautiful and well made. With it's black glossy bevel and slim design, the HP w2228h looks like it's ready to do it's part.
Out of the box, the HP sits on it's own stand which has a nice weight to it, also, it allows the monitor to swivel to either portrait or landscape positions.
Another great feature of the monitor is it's inputs, allowing a DVI, VGA and HDMI cable to be connected at the same time and the user to switch between inputs at the touch of a button.
The picture quality is amazing and out of the box, the colours are rich and the contrast is good, it also gives you the option to switch between different modes such as movie, text, gaming etc.
First first review! Woop. Anyway, I got this screen in a package along with my base unit and I am very impressed.
I've had it for around 3 months now and unlike most of my previous monitors I have had no issues whatsoever. I use it for gaming purposes and I feel the 22 inch size it offers is just right (I turned down the 24' Samsung option for this).
Something I also like to do is read Ebooks, probably not the best thing for my eyes but I am running out of space in my room. You may not know but this monitor rotates and allows for a length way view, this makes reading Ebooks or in other cases websites with long pages very easy to read.
The resolution as stated in the product description does go to a very extreme 1680 x 1050 and is very noticeable.
I'll be honest in saying that I have not played with the buttons and fiddled about with the settings, but that is because I have not needed to. From the moment I turned the screen on for the first time and was met by a comforting blue glow I have been nothing but pleased with this screen.
Being very critical you may have to adjust the settings on your operating system resolutions to fit with the screens. If you don't you may be greeted with part of the monitor not being used until you do.
Overall however, an absolute dream to use. I highly recommend this to anybody looking for a flexible, desirable and reliable screen.
