Great Monitor !

BenQ might be seen as an 'unknown' brand to some, but trust me these guys know what they're doing. Excellent value money imo.

Thanks OP

This is a good deal and it's hot from me. However, I bypassed it to go for the G2222HDL model from, the same site, for around £7 more. The G2222HDL has a LED backlight which should give more vivid images than this one. The killer for me though was that that LED screen has a power consumption of 28W against the 42W of this one... not sure if that'll ever save me the £7 back but it's nice to know.

Also, I do think 21.5" is a bit small for a full-hd screen... unless you can read really small text or be bothered to adjust lots of font settings then it may be wiser to go for a larger panel.

I wasnt sure if this was LED backlit or not. Amazon have the G2222HDL LED backlit monitor for £108.

Tempted to go for an even bigger one now the prices have come down!! =)

It's not LED, that's what the L in G2222HDL stands for.

Lack of HDMI !
I joke I joke; great price for a great monitor :D

22" might be a bit small for 1920x1080, I know I wouldn't want the text any smaller on my 22" which is native to 1680x1050.

I think 1680x1050 relates to a 16:10 ratio screen. This is a 16:9.

What's the problem with the text? I'm interested in the monitor but need it for word processing.

The bottom line is that it is. However, so far it's okay. I have upped the DPI on Windows 7 (screen resolution > Make text and other items larger or smaller) and set a minimum font size in Firefox. It makes the fonts nicer because they are built up of more dots. However, not all applications are "DPI aware" and in the best case you need to adjust the font in the application manually. However, some applications just don't provide any way to up the font size (Skype seems to only allow you to change the chat text size, not the size of the text in the contact list etc.) or you get format issues with text overlap/missing parts of characters.

I think this panel is best used in TVs where fonts aren't an issue. But if you are after a cheap HD monitor then this and the LED version are worth considering because a 24" version will add a third to the cost.

I've had this monitor for nearly 10 months now, I really like it, I don't have any complaints, but I would recommend getting a monitor with hdmi or hdmi and a 3.5mm sound output, as it can get complicated when using a games console
#14
Been using this monitor for half a year, great unit for a great price.

Much prefer it over my old Samsung model.

21.5" is a bit small for a full-hd screen. It crams a lot of dots into a small panel. Windows still uses the same number of dots to display text characters and, as such, fonts on the Start Menu, logon screen and other controls will have a tendency to be very small when shown on this screen without adjustment. For word-processing, you won't have a problem.

I own the HDL version of this monitor (with LED) and the resolution is great - it's not a problem at all.

In the old 16:10 days, you had 1440 x 900 on 17" and 19" monitors, and 1680x1050 on 20" and 22".

My old monitor was a 20" at 1680x1050, which was great. This 21.5", at 1920x1080, is simply wider and is actually more or less the same height as my old 20" (I have both on my desk now and they sit right next to each other). The actual pixel density is pretty much the same - 1050 and 1080 in terms of height are pretty much the same, and the extra pixels (1920 vs 1680) are there due to the increased width. The pixel density of my Samsung 205BW 20" at 1680x1050 was 0.258 mm, this is 0.248 mm, a bit smaller but really I don't think you'd notice or find text etc... too small (I don't anyway!).

Unless you have really bad eyesight, I think 1920x1080 at 21.5" is absolutely fine :)

I've voted hot, but, I think the LED version for an extra £8 is the better buy!

But seriously, NO HDMI...

The text doesn't seem small to me. I like 21.5", I find any bigger to be too big as a monitor.

I wonder how most 21.5" 1650x1050 and 1920x1080 have the same pixel pitch? Surely the 1920 should have a smaller pixel pitch since it is cramming more pixels in the same size screen.

get over it.. only worth it if your pluggin in a ps3 or xbox (and if you are there are ways around that)

if its a pc i presume you'll be sending you sound somwhere else? thus no need for HDMI

I think you are mistaken, do you have a link or reference for this? I don't think you can get a 21.5" 1650x1050 panel. However, it was interesting to have a look at the Dot Pitch page on Wikipedia. 1680×1050 on a 22" (which I use at work and think is ideal) has a dot pitch of 0.282. 1920×1080 has a smaller pitch of 0.248. To get a similar pitch to the 22" 1680x1050 on a HD panel then you'd need to go up to 24.6"... ouch!

Also, one of the things I like about this monitor (assuming it has the same contents as the LED unit I bought), is that it does *not* come with a DVI cable (only DSUB). That means people who need input from a HDMI source can buy a DVI-HDMI cable instead and not have an unused DVI cable go to waste.

My laptop (15.6") is 1920x1200, I'm guessing by some peoples posts it would be illegible.

I can't stand the 1366x768 screens most laptops are fitted with.

22" @ 1080p is fine, unless you need you eyes tested.
#22
Secondly this isn't hot, as most places have this at around the same price, maybe saving a couple of quid.
#23
I'm assuming this has expired? Price is £109.49 now.
#24
does any1 know what i would need to connect a ps3 to this?
#25
Hot, Not sure if to spend the extra dosh on the LG TV/Monitor one.. hmm
#26
Price has gone up now
#27
good, but at £7 more for the newer LED version, u'd be silly not to go for that IMO :)
#28
Stock is available, unexpired :)
