The Good The HP w2207 LCD monitor showed the strongest overall performance in its class; sharp new design; screen can swivel to portrait mode; reasonable price; HDCP-compliant.
The Bad HP's My Display software is buggy and needs refinement; HD video still better on a TV.
The Bottom Line If you can look past a few minor issues, we can think of few people who would be unhappy to own HP's new w2207 LCD. Its attractive design, outstanding overall performance, and approachable price tag make this one of our favorite 22-inch screens to date.
HP w2207 LCD monitor
HP's new 22-inch LCD, the w2207, is a striking update in design and functionality to its mainstream line of computer LCDs. Borrowing visual cues from its new TouchSmart PC and Pavilion desktops, this sleek, black, wide-screen monitor will aid the overall look of any room you put it in. Considering its performance and its overall features, its $380 price tag also seems reasonable, compared with other 22-inch LCDs that cost a little less but don't deliver quite as much. Traditional TVs still have the advantage in high-definition movie watching; we found a few minor software issues. And HP's support lags behind other display vendors, but on balance, this monitor is one of the best in its class.
In addition to the attractive black bezel, the sturdy base of the display gives you a decent range of tilt and height adjustment options. It has no swivel capability, but you can rotate the display 90 degrees to portrait mode. The stand also gives you room to slide your keyboard underneath the monitor, a handy feature that helps keep your desk area tidy. Two sleeves on either side of the neck of the display corral the power and signal cables, although when you go into portrait mode from landscape, be sure to leave yourself enough slack or the cables will yank out of their sockets.
