DCLCD DCL22A vs. Sceptre X22WG...Same monitor, different name

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
They seem to be the exact same monitor besides the name.

http://www.sceptre.com/Products/LCD/...22wg_1080p.htm

http://www.dclcd.com/Products/LCD/Specs/spec_dcl22a.htm

I don't see ANY difference at all. which one is preferable over the other.

dclcd vs. Sceptre.

I have a Sceptre X20WG (similar to X22WG) and I'll admit, it has a fair amount of light bleed when the screen is black.

The X22WG might have the same deal... but then again, the DCLCD might as well.

The DCLCD is $10 cheaper on Newegg. It took me about 5 months to get the rebate from Sceptre for my monitor.

However, DCLCD might just be a cheap re-badge and have less customer support if it's needed and/or a different RMA policy for dead/stuck pixels. IIRC, Sceptre has the 7 pixel policy. I have one dead pixel on my X20WG, but I can't notice it anymore.

Check with DCLCD's customer support... base it off that, I suppose.

I have the DCLCD 24" from newegg, no bleeding, no ghosting, viewing angles aren't the greatest, movies look great, etc.

I called the DCLCD customer support line and it is answered by Sceptre.

I would buy it again in a <3beat.

I have the Sceptre and with the exception of it being a bit darker towards the top of the screen I don't have any complaints although my first one had some serious problems like loose connections inside the monitor for the buttons but that could have happened during shipping so I can't really blame it on manufacturing.

One thing to mention though is that you cannot adjust the angle or height of the screen so be sure your chair can either rise up or lower.

I notice that the farther away your are from the monitor the less dramatic the brightness shift is even at the same angle.

but the problem is that even though the screen is so big, the resolution is very high which means the text will be smaller.

So really, a bigger screen does not always mean bigger text.
