22" headache - Page 2

post #11 of 13
get the 22" don't think twice on the size.

Personally, get the 226bw or hp w2207.

Either one is a great choice.

I plan to purchase a 226bw and do a heads up comparison with the w2207, then return the loser

Gloss makes a difference btw, hence why every TV has gloss....

I went big and got a 22'' mainly because, at 22'', it was larger than my TV. I set it up in front of my bed an use it as HD screen for all my DivX and XVids and all of that. The 2 extra inches really pay off. Plus, with larger pixels, I generally set my screen further back, with lets me more fully take in the widescreen awesomenes.

But in the end it really boils down to personal choice, if you want to watch movies on it, go with the 22, but if its for business, go for the 20.

On a side note, I don't really notice the larger pixels when playing games, due to antialiasing.

I have the 225bw and it is the best thing i have ever bought for this rig. The res is plenty high enough and gaming and text look sharp as a knife.
