REVIEW: HP ZR22w Part 2
The base has a fast connection, onto which the monitor need only be placed and locked into place. The base has been weighted additionally towards the bottom in order to allow the monitor to stand securely in any situation. Therefore, a push against the table is no danger and even when the monitor was being adjusted, the base always stayed steady in its position.
Heavy, stable base.
The HP ZR22w is made of a matte black material, which does not attract dust or leave behind any visible fingerprints. The product name has been printed in the lower left section of the front frame and the buttons for the menu controls are located on the right hand side. On the upper part of the frame, the manufacturer’s logo is located in the centre, made of aluminium and set into the frame.
A similar but larger logo can be found on the back of the monitor. The bottom of the base has a space for threading the cables through to the back. Above this is a button which must be pressed to adjust the height of the monitor. There is a grip at the top which is also useful when the monitor is being adjusted and under this is a safety catch with which the base can be removed.

As described, the monitor can be adjusted in height with the aid of the grip. Here, adjustment is continuous, with no intermittent steps. In the highest setting, the distance between the lower edge of the monitor and the desk surface is 15.5 centimetres and in the lowest setting, the distance is about 6.5 centimetres, so there is an adjustment scope of 9 centimetres.

When the monitor is in the highest setting, it can be turned into pivot position. Thanks to the heavy base, this could also be done without difficulty and without a great degree of strength. In the highest position, the distance between the desk surface and the monitor is six centimetres and in the lowest, the frame sits directly on top of the base or on top of the desk in front of the base, when tilted slightly.

The monitor can be tilted slightly forwards (5 degrees) and can be tilted 30 degrees backwards. Here, too, adjustment is continuous and the monitor remains securely in place in the desired position. The two USB connections of the hub can be seen on the left hand side, with two others beside the remaining connections on the back of the monitor. The right hand side has no special features.
