      Handy PC monitor for viewing videos and photos

      -----------------------------------
      When I bought this product
      -----------------------------------

      Shortly before Christmas 2011 I decided I wanted a new monitor for my PC so started looking on the Argos website and eventually decided on the LG Flatron E2211 which I think was selling for £100 - £120 at the time, unfortunately Argos no longer sell but it is available from Amazon around the £130 mark.

      --------------------------------
      My Experience / Features
      --------------------------------

      After I opened the box and removed the contents which included the Monitor, base stand, VGA cable (D-SUB) and the instruction manuals I decided I would fit the stand first which is done by lifting the monitor and aligning the base of the monitor with the hole at the top of the stand and push the stand and monitor together until it clicks into place (it is secure once you hear this click).

      The next thing I did was place it on my desk and connect it to the computer by connecting the VGA cable into the VGA port on the back of the monitor, although it's labelled D-SUB on the back of this monitor, and to connect the to the mains you need a standard three pin kettle lead which should be included with the monitor, once the monitor is switched on and has a signal to the computer it should detect the monitor almost straight away and auto adjust itself (this can be done manually by pressing the menu button which is the first button from the left of the power button and then pressing the third button from the left of the power button).

      ---------------
      Connections
      ---------------

      As I mentioned above this monitor only has a D-SUB (VGA) port which may be limiting to some as most modern graphics card feature a HDMI port, although this doesn't really bother me too much as I've always connected my monitors with the standard VGA cable.

      It also has the socket for the standard three pin power cable that is also used to connect the computer to the mains as I also mentioned in the previous section.

      -----------------
      Menu Options
      -----------------

      To access the menu, or monitor setup as it's displayed on the screen you start by pressing the first button to the left of the power button (I've also just found out you can press any of the buttons to bring up the menu), this will bring up a small rectangle box at the bottom right hand corner of the screen, the menu options also line up with the corresponding buttons.

      The first button on the left is the "Menu" option, pressing the button below this option will allow you quickly adjust the brightness, colour temp and the preset options to your liking, while adjusting these options the buttons act as (from left to right) the back (to return to the previous menu), left and right (to raise or lower the brightness) and down (to move between the item to adjust).

      The second button from the left accesses the "Super Energy Saving" feature, once on this menu the buttons again act as the back, left and right options which allow you to turn this feature on, off or to reset the data shown.

      The third button from the left access the auto adjust feature, all this does is re-align the display when ever it may be necessary although I don't use this feature that often.

      ------------------
      Wall Mounting
      ------------------

      On the back of the monitor are the standard VESA wall mounting screw holes (measuring 100 x100mm which would allow you to fit a wall bracket and mount the monitor to the wall, as the connections are on the bottom of the monitor you could easily have a flat bracket that sits flush against the wall, although the stand would need to be removed in this case which can be done by pushing in the button on the back of the monitor (it's labelled "Push") and separate the stand from the monitor.

      ---------------
      Advantages
      ---------------

      *This monitor is a decent size (21.5") allowing you to view photos and videos at a decent resolution (up to a maximum of 1920 x 1080 in landscape mode, or 1080 x 1920 in portrait mode.

      *The monitor is also very light and doesn't take up too much space even with the stand fitted to the monitor, and would take up even less space if wall mounted

      *As this monitor features a VGA port it can also be used to connect to an Xbox 360, although it doesn't have built in speakers so you would have to use a separate sound source

      *As I mentioned in the wall mounting section the stand is easily removable so would be very easy to wall mount as the connections are at the bottom of the monitor so wouldn't stick out of the back like some TVs do.

      -------------------
      Disadvantages
      -------------------

      *As I mentioned earlier this monitor only features VGA (D-SUB) as a video connection option which may be limiting to people who use DVI or HDMI.

      *The light around the power button can be fairly bright when the monitor is in standby mode as it constantly flashes white, I normally get around this by switching off the monitor when I switch the computer off.

      ---------
      Overall
      ---------

      Despite the disadvantages mentioned above this is a very good PC monitor and isn't too expensive, it is a decent size that will allow viewing of photos and videos and could also double as a monitor for an Xbox or even a laptop with a compatible VGA port, I will be giving this 4 DooYoo stars due to the disadvantages I mentioned above
