HP w2228h First Impressions
Digging into my savings, I finally got an HP w2228h, a slightly improved version of the w2207h I’ve been drooling over. So, is it worth the P15,500 cash price I was able to get from Accent Micro in Mall of Asia?
- 22 inches of visual goodness!
- 1680 x 1050 resolution, perfect for working with lots of Windows
- Height, swivel, and orientation (landscape or portrait) adjustment
- Nice contrast level
- Wide viewing angle
- 2 USB ports
- HDMI, DVI, and VGA ports support lots of devices
- Built-in speakers do not sound like tin cans
- Comes with all the cables you need
- Price, while great for 22-inchers, is still not cheap
- Adjusting display’s angle requires two hands and some muscle
- Changing the display’s orientation sort of mucks up the cables; ports should’ve been placed on base
- Built-in speakers lack bass
To make a long story short, the HP w2228h is easily worth the money I paid; I’ve yet to be disappointed with my investment. Since it works with a variety of computers (thanks to its HDMI, DVI, and VGA ports), the display also works with my parents’ older laptops. Even better, if I ever decide to buy a PS3 (which supports HDMI), I don’t need to buy a TV for it!
