Users tend to buy monitors that give a huge display, several ports, and detailed image quality. With so many demands, comes a price tag that makes it difficult to buy for some of the users.
But, what if a monitor offers detailed image quality, crisp display along with multi-viewing angles and connectivity ports-all in the same monitor? Seems like a rumor.
But, today I am going to review one such monitor brought by one of the most trusted brands-HP introducing HP 22cwa LED Monitor.
HP 22cwa LED Monitor Review
First Impression of HP 22cwa LED Monitor
At the first sight, the monitor looks very sleek and stylish coming in black colour. The display was flawlessly producing bright and vibrant colours. You get an open wedge stand to hold this slim monitor.
Featuring thin bezels, this monitor saves a lot of desk space giving you the features of a bigger monitor at a smaller price tag and size. The IPS Technology gives several viewing angles.
Features of HP 22cwa LED Monitor
You get a full HD Display with a resolution of 1920×1080. The designers have opted for In-plane switching (IPS) over Twisted Nematic to produce better viewing angles. Experience a substantial increment in the image quality since the screen brightness is 250 nits.
The IPS interface measures 60 Hz along with the Aspect ratio of 16:9 which balances image dimensions. The refresh rate of 60 Hz improves the details of the image when the fast-paced images are being displayed. This is backed by the response rate of 7ms enhancing the gaming experience during the fast-paced games.
You get a perfect image on the screen with the right balance between its length and breadth. The 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio gives you a detailed image making it visible from a larger distance as well. The white image looks whiter whereas black looks blacker, all thanks to the contrast ratio.
Connectivity and Packaging
You get two different ports at the back- HDMI port and VGA port. You get a VGI cable along with the Monitor to connect with the VGI port. The users need to own an HDMI cable to get the experience of HDMI port.
Since Apple owners found it difficult to connect with the ports, I would suggest buying a Thunderbolt adapter which is compatible with HP 22cwa Monitor ports. Gamers may require a little calibration on the graphics front to experience the gaming atmosphere at its best.
The total weight of the monitor is 6.6 pounds and comes with an instruction manual, a wedge stand, and a VGI cable.
Available in black colour, you get a professional looking monitor suitable for both teenagers as well as adults.
Conclusion for HP 22cwa LED Monitor Review
An excellent value for money backed with IPS display, the HP 22cwa is an advantage over all those TN-based monitors giving you a bright, crisp and detailed image quality compared to other monitors available at the same price.
The thin bezels are an added advantage as they save your desk space while functioning similarly to the monitor of bigger dimensions. HP 22cwa is not meant for every user but for those judgemental gamers who love o experience the real gaming display experience for longer hours with every minute detail helping them hone their gaming skills.
Falling under the price tag below $100, having this monitor on your desk won’t be an expensive buy saving your money as well as desk space. Further, the brand name HP adds a positive impact to the product impressing its users with a promising performance.
