All monitors have problems, and on those that are the cheapest in their size they're going to be worse than more expensive monitors. You just have to decide which set of problems you'll find easiest to live with.

BenQ, iiyama, viewsonic and Dell are all worth looking at for monitors generally.

Hi

I have an HP 22". Now I would not normally buy HP based on their historical cornering and almost monopoly on the PC and laptop market. And because they used to use a lot of propriatory kit in their PCs meaning it couldn't be upgraded with standard motherboards for example.

However, I got my monitor very cheap and to be honest I would have happily have paid another 20-30% for it.

My appreciation for it is for 2 main reasons:

1 build quality. This thing is so robust and well designed I think it is probably one of my favorite bits of IT. I was actually quite astonished after it was delivered just how big the box was. Many screens have a separate base that requires some assembly as you may have experienced. This thing came in a box larger than would be required for a tower PC as it was pre assembled and the weight was really surprising. In summary it is incredibly well put together.

2 Pivot Pro - Some monitors have tilt and height adjustment. This one has tilt, height and pivot; which on a widescreen monitor means that you can rotate the screen around 90degrees and you then have a screen orientated perfectly for working on documents in portrait view. A full size letter (or larger for a 22") is really nice to work with when you can see the entire document.

mine is the older 2045W. I believe that the newer ones have an improved contrast ratio which is possibly the only thing that lets mine down (and this is minor and only noticeable since I tried setting my PC up with my new Samsung TV which has very good dynamic contrast ratio). If you aim for something with over 650:1 contrast ratio you'll be ok. (this by the way is just the difference between black and white on your screen (how dark is your black how light are your whites.))

I've rambled a bit there haven't I. So have a look at HP as I think there are some good prices out there for them. Samsung also ge tmy vote for quality based upon my TV and I believe LG are pretty hot on styles at the minute. If you are after good build and functionality then I would defo give the HP 22__W a look at and I think that Ebuyer would be a good place to start. Good luck.

The sucessor to your model appear to be the L2245w and the LP2275w. The LP2245w is about £175 with the current cashback offer, the LP2275w is around £300.

They're HP's business monitors, the home models probably won't have the same build quality (and have glossy screens).

TrustedReviews have reviewed a few 22" screens lately: http://www.trustedreviews.com/displays/
