REVIEW: BenQ X2200W
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
"extremely fast and extremely sharp!", says the advertising text for the latest gamer monitor, on the BenQ homepage, the X2200W. With the 22-inch model, the Taiwanese company is bringing a model to the market which has it in itself.
The widescreen monitor comes with a digital DVI input and an additional HDMI input for connecting games consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and is also equipped with image improvement technology: "PerfectMotion" displays moving pictures more sharply, similarly to Motion Picture Accelerator technology (MPA) used in the Samsung 245T.
Like the BenQ model’s direct rival, the LG L227WT, BenQ’s 22-inch model can display an extended colour space thanks to its special backlight. To put it more precisely, 92 percent of the NTSC colour space can be covered. This means that the BenQ could also potentially be used for graphics work – provided that the generally strongly viewing angle-dependent TN panel co-operates.
The BenQ X2200W was tested using an Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT and an XFX GeForce 8800GTS Extreme graphics card on Windows XP (Professional). Apart from the analogue signal quality, all tests were carried out on the digital connection (DVI). Our test model is also from the free market and was not provided directly by the manufacturer.
