Design and Features
The 22-inch Lenovo ThinkVision L2251x Wide has a medium gray chassis with a matte finish. The bezel is short--0.6 inch wide on the right and left sides, and the panel measures 1 inch in depth. The back of the display--which houses the connection options and ventilation system--extends the panel another 1.1 inch, bringing the full monitor depth to about 2.1 inches. On the top of the bezel, in the center, sits a built-in Webcam and microphone. On the left side of the panel sit two USB ports aligned vertically.
The bottom right-hand corner of the bezel includes the OSD array consisting of a Menu button (which doubles as the Enter button), Right and Left directional buttons, a Back button, and a Video Source button. The right button also doubles as a shortcut to brightness and contrast settings.
