HP w2207h review

£229 inc VAT

Manufacturer: HP

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The 22in HP w2207h has all the features you could want in a good monitor.

The 22in HP w2207h has all the features you could want in a good monitor. It comes through with great image quality, particularly with text, and it provides tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjustments.

HP has incorporated its Brightview glare panel in the HP w2207h, instead of using the chemically treated antiglare coating that appears on some of the company's other monitors, such as the the HP LP3065 and the the HP LP1965. This makes for a cleaner-looking image, but introduces more reflectivity as well.

The HP w2207h display, which has a native resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels, comes with two side USB ports, plus HDMI and VGA inputs. HP doesn't bundle an adaptor to connect the monitor's HDMI or VGA ports to the DVI connection that most PCs now use, although such adapters are inexpensive and readily available online.

The HP w2207h display sits in an inch thick glossy black bezel with rounded edges. Unfortunately, you can easily smudge the glossy finish with fingerprints when adjusting the display.

Although the HP w2207h doesn't have a headphone jack, it does include a set of built-in speakers. Like most speakers built into monitors, the HP's are weak in bass, resulting in flat, tinny audio. For soft background music or basic sound effects for games, however, the speakers are adequate.

HP includes MyDisplay software to help you perform simple monitor calibrations, and you can automatically rotate the screen when you pivot it.
