With the X222W, Acer is bringing its fourth LCD model in the popular 22-inch widescreen format to the market. As is usual in this monitor class, the X222W features a fast-responding TN (Twisted Nematic) panel.

Unlike the other 22-inch monitors by this manufacturer, the X222W is capable of displaying a full 16.7 million colours – made possible by Frame Rate Control (FRC). In addition, the Monitor’s CrystalBrite display layer lends it a subjectively more brilliant image playback.

The aforementioned glare layer also makes the X222W a direct competitor of the HP w2207. This has long been a top model in the 22-inch monitor class.

Acer’s model identification code is somewhat confusing. On Acer’s website, only a model X222W can be found. The established identification code in the price search engines is X222Wd, but with the add-on ‘black’. Out model is marked with the additional code X222Wbd, where the b stands for black and d stands for the digital input. According to our knowledge, the X222Wd, which must have a silver frame, cannot be found in Germany.

We ourselves bought our model from Amazon with identification code X222Wd and then received an X222Wbd. Because of the confusing codes, we have restricted ourselves to the identification code Acer X222W for this test.
In the following detailed review, we intend to examine whether or not the Acer X222W can keep up with the competition.

Apart from the analogue image playback quality, which we tested via the analogue connection (VGA), all test results published here were obtained via the digital input (DVI). We tested the monitor using an ATI Sapphire Radeon X1950 PRO 512MB with the latest driver.

Scope of supply

The Acer X222W comes with the usual power cable for German socket and two further international power cables. A D-Sub cable for the analogue signal and a DVI-D cable for the digital signal are also included, as well as an audio cable.

A multilingual Getting Started Guide and a guarantee, both in hard copy, come with the monitor. The CD ROM included contains a PDF user guide in 18 languages, but neither driver software nor colour profiles can be found on it.
