The Packard Bell Maestro 220Wdv we are testing is another 22-inch monitor which differs optically from popular Acer and Iiyama models. This Packard-Bell 16:10 format widescreen monitor is also fitted with a TN panel, giving it a native resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels. The TN panel is a glare panel, which distinguishes the monitor somewhat from others of the same size.
Our thorough testing will show how the Packard Bell Maestro 220Wdv performs in daily use, for work, play or DVD playback and whether it can compete with the numerous 22-inch models that are currently on the market.
All test results were obtained via a digital connection. An analogue connection was used solely to test the analogue image quality. Tests were run using two graphics cards: a Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX and a XFX GeForce 8800GTX.
Two High-End graphics cards by Nvidia and ATI ensure optimum image quality for gaming tests.
