5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Monitor, July 10, 2010

This review is from: ViewSonic VX2250WM-LED 22-Inch (21.5-Inch Vis) Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED Monitor with Integrated Stereo Speakers (Personal Computers)
I wanted to get a great monitor to go with the new PC I'm building. I use a lot of 3D design and photo editing programs, and I really wanted the real-estate of a 1080p screen. I also wanted great contrast and brightness. I found it all in this monitor.

Pros:
-Super slim!
-Amazing contrast
-Great brightness
-I used to think I liked glossy screens better, but now I can see that they distort dark areas. I love the matte screen. No glare at all!
-Easy to use interface
-Touch buttons are cool
-Excellent response time
-Resolution allows me to have multiple windows open comfortably on the screen
-Low price

Cons:
-No HDMI (which isn't a problem because I have an HDMI to DVI connector)
-You can only adjust the tilt, not height or swivel

Overall, I love this monitor. The contrast is astounding. I hooked it up to my PS3 and was amazed at how much dark detail was easily visible. I have the brightness at 40 and it's comfortable. 100% is super bright. The monitor recognized my DVI input immediately. You can tweak the individual colors, which I will certainly do when I have time.

The few cons I have are insignificant and this is definitely a 5-star item for the price. I will probably get another one in the future for a dual monitor setup.

Hey, thanks for the review. I just got this monitor and hooked it up to my ps3 with a dvi/hdmi cable.
How did you get the sound to work? When I go to Audio Settings it says that the HDMI sound cannot work on this device.

Yeah it's unfortunate that the monitor won't accept HDMI sound. I didn't have to deal with this problem because I always hook my PS3 up via composite to external speakers. You may be able to use some sort of composite to aux cable to get sound separately to the monitor but I'm not sure.
