Finally I am writing a review of my lovely WideScreen. Its a LG Flatron 22inch screen (Model no: L226WTQ) which is one of the best 22″ screen available at such a price. Lets go through its technical specifications first.

- 5000 : 1 Contrast Ratio (Dynamic)
- 2ms Response Time (Gray to Gray)

- 45W Power Consumption
- 5.85 kg weight
What I have to say about it?
Its a brilliant screen, definately the best in its price category. The contrast ratio is great. It sparks on colors. Even being a 22″screen, it offers 2ms response time (all other offers 5ms response time) which is good for gaming. I havn’t observed any ghosting effect on it. The viewing angle is great. I can watch movies on it while lying on bed and just tilting the screen 5o in front. It has a cool rotation mechanism that allows you to swivel it with just a pressure of finger. Inputs include VGA and DVI-D. The latter is HDCP-enabled, so you can connect the screen to a Blu-ray or HD DVD player and enjoy copy-protected movies. There’s no HDMI socket, but you can buy a DVI-to-HDMI adaptor if the need arises.
While I was looking for a good screen that can serve all my needs, I came to know that the best screens are by Dell only but they are a little expensive option in India and moreover there best 22″ screen was available in white color and I wanted one in black color. Considering the price of LG L226WTQ (MRP: 15k INR, I got it in 13k INR), its the best value for your money. You will not regret buying it. The only thing it lacks is that it can’t be switched to potrait mode (not much of a con) like some Dell monitors can.
However, I have a little problem in dismantling the screen both in showroom and in home but thats something one will rarely do. It was free from any dead pixels when I checked it. If you are looking for 22inch screen, then you can blindly go for this one.
Do you own a widescreen? How is it?
