Monitors with 22-inch screens are the most popular amongst LCD displays at the moment. A fast image formation time together with a comparatively low price have contributed to this position. Gamers and offices users can opt for a 22-inch TN panel without further consideration, since the viewing angles are rather unimportant in both these areas of application. However, if you wish to carry out tasks on your 22-inch monitor where colour is crucial, you would have to go for another screen size. 22-inch TN panel models are simply not suitable for this sort of work.

The long wait for a 22-inch model with VA panel technology and a viewing angle of 178 degrees has come to an end. The first manufacturer to break into this new area, Eizo is now offering the S2231W with an S-PVA panel by Samsung. And the crowning glory is that the model is still a Wide Gamut LCD, which is capable of reproducing an extended colour space.

Eizo offers the S2231W in 2 model variants, with each variant available in 2 colours. The S2231WH comes with a pillar-style base and comes in the colour versions S2231WH-GY (grey) and S2231WH-BK (black). We tested the S2231WE, which is equipped with an EasyUp base. Here, too, the colour variants S2231WE-GY (grey) and S2231WE-BK (black) are available.

All results published in the test were obtained via the digital input via an XFX GeForce 8800GTX. Only the analogue image quality was tested on an analogue connection.
