    BenQ G2220HD

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    HD has become de facto standard in the multimedia market in the last few years. The days of VHS videos or even DVDs are already over. Moreover, with the entry of Blu-ray into the storage market, when you hit the video store to rent a new movie, you will find that most of them come in the HD format. Therefore, if you want to experience these at their best you need to get a full HD screen. What to buy remains the only question. This article reviews one possibility, the BenQ G2220HD.

    Given the economic crisis with which we are currently struggling, manufacturers mainly market a few cheap LCDs that offer full HD. The BenQ G2220HD is a concrete example of this. Announced in April 2009, the BenQ G2220HD has two versions. The first one includes only a D-Sub connection port, while the other one has a DVI connection as well. To further differentiate the two products, BenQ added an "A" letter after the name of the first flavor.

    However, everything else is mainly the same (of course the price differs a little, with the one with a single connection port being lower). So if you want to buy the BenQ G2220HDA this review should also help you. Additionally, if you do not need the DVI connection you may spare a few bucks.

    If you are in market for a good LCD monitor you may first want to familiarize yourself with their main technical traits. For this I advise you to read my forum post here. Once you know what to beware of when buying a new monitor, you can start the search with reading this review. The main reason HDTV looks so much better than classic videos is resolution.

    You can create a more accurate image with a million pixels working together rather than just a tenth of that. They are three main HDTV source formats: 1080p (used in consoles and Blu-ray movies) and 1080i (used by television channels). These have a 1,920x1,080 resolution. Then there is the 720p that uses the lower resolution of 1,280x720 (found in television channels like ABC, Fox, etc).

    As a comparison, DVD players use the 480i/p with the 852*480 resolution. The term FULL HD usually covers a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 that has a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels. Paired with the 1080 horizontal resolution, this gives you 2,073,600 pixels. The BenQ G2220HD is a 21.6 inch full HD monitor that you can find for just a little below $200.
