REVIEW: Fujitsu P22W-5 ECO IPS Part 11
In the main menu "Image balance" and sub-menu "Expansion", there are two image display modes to select from: "Full screen" and "Proportional", the latter being nothing other than a 4:3 display, affecting only 4:3 resolutions. A 16:10 resolution is always displayed as filling the screen.
Native resolution of the Fujitsu P22W-5: sharp display.
The interpolation of the next lowest 16:10 resolution 1.440 x 900 is still acceptable, although it is not a master performance.
Interpolated 16:10 resolution.
The lower the resolution, the more difficulty the Fujitsu P22W-5 has with display. For a 4:3 resolution, the image display "Proportional" should definitely be selected. This can then improve the image display somewhat and is still correct in terms of the aspect ratio.

A lower resolution than 1.280 x 1.024 pixels is not recommended. Here, the interpolation weaknesses of the Fujitsu P22W-5 are more than clear. Even the correct aspect ratio can no longer help much here.

Interpolation is not one of the strengths of the Fujitsu P22W-5. Even resolutions that differ just slightly from the native resolution are still displayed just about well. From 1,280 pixels, even at the correct aspect ratio, it is no longer possible to display the image pleasantly. Although the Fujitsu P22W-5 allows the sharpness to be adjusted, this has little effect for interpolated display.
The interpolation is better in games, but here, too, the native resolution should be used where possible. We took a closer look at the interpolation abilities of the Fujitsu P22W-5 using a scene from the 3rd Person shooting game "Dead Space". This game considers the aspect ratio of a resolution and accordingly reduces the gamer’s field of vision. Thus, it is not the fault of the monitor that the image display is sometimes truncated.
Up to a resolution of 1.440 x 900 pixels, the interpolated image is still quite acceptable. The lower the resolution, the more this is at the cost of the image quality. The edges of objects are displayed with steps and small details are lost completely. If the computer’s performance is not sufficient, our tip is to do without anti-aliasing and anisotrope filtering, but use the native resolution of the P22W-5.
